    Dragon I appreciate that - and everyone else who has been using jpg or gif format lately - its nice to be able to comment on skins again without a hassle

    I like your skin so far - I think it would end up getting low marks in originality, as I've seen a few like it, but you have a nice overall layout and the colors are appropriate

    for improvements I'd like to see some shadowing to give some pieces a bit more depth - like if you could select the lighter shade of gray parts of the border and the green digital window then apply a light drop shadow (2 vertical, 2 horizontal, 50 opacity, 3 blur) it would give it a little kick I think - my only other suggestion for improvement would be the vol/bal/posbar button - not that there's anything wrong with the way that they are, just that the offcenterness of them bugs me a little - I'm not sure how to explain it - maybe just give those areas a little more thought

    in general - I definitely think you should finish it - its obviously going to be a quality skin
    If anyone can find any of the skins I made please email them to [email protected]
    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.

      I use MSPaint so it will be hard to do the shadows thing... but i see what your getting at, I'll give it a go.

        I like it so far, its not the most original concept, but it's looking nice. I'd say finish it. Forevers suggestion of a slight drop shadow would look great even though it may be difficult to achieve in mspaint.

          I appollogise (for my spelling) for being a little niave but why not use psp? I always thought that ms paint is a little basic.

            You can make anything in MSPaint... Just takes a little... Okay alot more time, I like to work pixel by pixel to, then zoom out an see how it looks. Plus PSP to me seems alittle hard to get the hang of, I ain't dissing it, it's a very good program, Just I personally can't use it.

              Okay I've tryed to make it look abit more like theres shadows an stuff, added high-lights.

              Any better?

              The sliders I will redo when I get the main looking right.

                        Very nice. You're showing MSPaint skills here.

                        One problem though: you misspelled 'information.' Hehe, you spelled it as 'infomation.' Add an R, then the skin will be near perfect.

                        Keep it up!

                          Could someone give me a little bit of help please? I want animated Vol/Bal sliders, but i can't do them. I need to do them 'cause the vol slider is cutting into part of the shading and when its set a 0 to about 10% its covering abit of the shading. Would someone help, show me how to make or make one for me, I don't mind, I just need it because of the reason above. at the mo the skin looks like the attachment Sorry people it's PNG

                          Help me........ Please

                            Nice start.

                            You really dont need much help.All you need to do is crop the sliders and use the volume postions image(assuming you have it).

                            I have a suggestion.Put a lighter shade of green on the inneredge of the display.This will give it a kinda bevel effect.


                            • #15
                              The two metal parts at the top of the main need to have the bottom bevels lightened to match the others.
                              If I can find time I might be able to help with the vol and bal sliders. Will be a day or so at best before I can get to it though, don`t hold your breath.
                              This looks great so far, stick with it. Deserves finishing.
