S.I.P.: Digital Glass

(Skin In Progress)

Let me know what you think about my new skin, digital glass. Only the main, so far.

Hmm... nice, like the gradient, but its a bit repetitive for my likes...Button pics are slightly too small for my likings too.. what are they? 3, 4 pixels? hehe, otherwise, good skin.

Looks good so far, but it reminds me more of ice blocks than glass

Only thing i dont like is that it's a bit repetitive.

nifty

it gets a little repetitive after a while tho. maybe you could put something in there to change it up a bit?

ice it is, hehe, but i stil think that the small black buttons are hard to find on the already darkish blue background.

sorry, just looked again, and got a new idea... instead of black for the text/buttons, why not use a near white blue or grey, or even a white? it will stick out more than the black which fades into the background...

The button pics are actually 5 pixels
I'm not shure what I could do to fix she repetitive problem. Perhaps combinding some of the buttons into one block? I'll try that.

I'll try the near-white text. This is too many posts! My mind can't keep up!

I'd like to see a whole other element thrown into the mix - right now you got the blue window/button areas and the silvery gray borders - maybe some well placed shadows - maybe.. I don't know - something to change it up - it only takes me 3 seconds to look at this skin - I like skins that force me to look a little harder
I do like what you have going so far - I just don't want it to stop there

If anyone can find any of the skins I made please email them to Forevever@aol.com
I can't remember all the names but specifically hunting for Lascivious, and DEVOUR (compilation with Jax) and any in the Impulse series which had 6 total. Auriferous, Gilt, Impulse, Nadir, and 2 others I can't remember but you dig.

hehe, indeed atmo... but hey, maybe add a different pattern? like keep some as they are, but on others, make em a bit different shading... *shrugs*

hehe forever, in that case ul like my 2nd skin... iv been workin on main for about 10 hours, and am only 1/2 way done... its got a LOT of detail, but yes, is easy to use. ATMO was my inspiration for this skin with his high detail in his skins, but no worries atmo, im not stealing any of ur ideas

As a element to make it look a bit different, perhaps I could make it look like some of the buttons were melting? As everyone agrees that it is ice, after all.

I like the melting idea, maybe even some water effects too would work in well...

Repetitive posts about a "repetitive" skin. OK, enough extended metaphors for one night.

Mmmm... melting ice, candle wax, britney spears... Sorry was I fantasising out loud I think the melting ice idea is orgas... nice.

hmm... you know what would be real cool? if you made the whole thing semi-transparent, and the rest bluish white shades. And in some areas its more transparent than in others. Just take out a pixel every here and there. I have always wanted to try a TRUE glass skin like this, but it would take an imense ammount of time... If you dont try it by the time i finish my current skin, i mite
