Renegade Monkey!

I know, there's a ton of metal skins out there, but I like woking with metal textures

heh...I kinda got tired of those colors about an hour into the skin, but I kept on anyway since I was far enough that it would be too much trouble to totally redo it, and I picked those colors because they blend fairly well and reduce the appearence of jaggies, but after I finished the eq I experimented with different colors, and found that it looks pretty cool reversed. I'm planning on changing a bunch of stuff and not just making it only a color change, but here's what I did on the main

I had IE 5.5 - could see png's
all of the sudden, out of nowhere, no warning or anything - I can't see png's - so, upon Chads suggestion, I went and downloaded the update for IE6
still can't see png's but my pop up window that asks me to download is different....

I suggest beveling on the red areas, some carving around the cbuttons/shufrepbuttons/etcbuttons - I suggest some drop shadowing from the red areas onto the green areas (or hey, even vice versa maybe), I suggest adding a 3rd color into the mix (besides shades of red and green) to throw it off

I decided that I dislike the shape, and I absolutely hate the colors
so I changed the frame to white and did some small changes to the frame

I think I'm just going to pretty much restart with this...I like the white

Now THAT is a skin! The other option I might consider is making the white all teal like that point in the middle sticking up.

that tanish border color was the dark teal negativized
I was going to use that color more in the skin, but I couldn't think of a way to do it without ruining the skin
so I changed it to the brighter teal

here's a working version of the mani window

I don't think I like the cbar, but I can't think of anything for it

I also can't think of a name for it...right now it's name is RED

yeh, that posbar does look kinda fat..

so why dont you crop it to 2,3 or 4 pixels in width, and then see what you can do after that.
i hope u know what i mean by this.

here's my posbar.bmp 3 pixels wide.

I think the posbar is fine how it is. Call me crazy ("You're crazy!"), but I actually don't think it would look as good smaller.

now there is an EQ! hippee

I want to change the EQ bars, but I can't think of anything to change them to

I think the official name for ths skin is now 'RED'

...fits the skin well, don'cha think?

I agree with Supey - I dont' think the posbar will look any better thinner - I like it the way it is, but I think I'd like to see it repeated somewhere on the skin - just to throw it off - I don't know
I like the name red
its looking real good

Very nice.

I'm digging the name - people are going to expect it to be red, and then wonder what the hell you were thinking naming it that .

Very nice.

If you don't look, I'll force you to.

I just put the title on the title bar (quite an accomplishment that was) hooray fo me

I wasnt to put the posbar thing across the eq, but I'd have to make the eq buttons on the bars take up al of their allotted width to do that, and I can't thinkn o a way to do that without making it looks stupid. Any suggestions?

red has pl now hooray

the main window has a bevel to it that I tried to redo in the other 2 windows but I couldn't figure out the settings. I thought I had saved them, but I saved the settings to something else...that annoys the crap out of me

oh well...it's not very noticable...there is a small thing that I found in the main but not in the other 2 windows that came from the bevel, and I fixed it, but that was after I made the screen shot and I didn't feel like redoing the ss...

finished...

here's a ss

well, actually I lied...I still have cursors to do...I'll go do them now...

don't worry, the mbinner and mikro are skinned. I just don't have mikro installed right now

I would post the ss but I can't log into my freeservers acoun so I'll just have to post it as an attachment.

is anyone else that uses freeservers getting an error when they try to log in? (it's not a password thing...it can't find the page)

It looks like there could be a bit of smoothing out required on a few sections.. well eg: the bottom of the minibrowser, but this could be a SS problem. Apart from that, all the rest seems perfect, apart from the black rectangular sqaures shown in the bottom time piece of the playlist, it seem a bit wierd, they dont seem embeded into the white foreground very well.

I'm not sure what you mean by "black rectangular squares" in the PL, and I only see very little jaggies at the bottom of the mb
to me everything looks smooth

yeh the actual box. the shadow is good, but maybe a bit more would be better? its upto u though.
also in the mini browser where the text is, its looks as if the black background of the text cuts off the corners of the white curved area on both sides. you could curve the white area around the edge of the text so it appears curved by moving it back a bit, making it not edged or cut away from the text and the buttons on the opposite side.

The more I look at this skin, the more I like it - I like how it seems all pillowy - like if I could pick the perfect shade of green as my desktop color it would blend perfectly and look even more like a pillow (getting sleepy now..)

I do see the jaggedness though - I can see why you don't
on most of the angles I can see it - I think if you could grab all of the border at once and add a white dropshadow (play around till you find the right one) it would get rid of that - otherwise you might want to grab your retouch tool and blur it out a bit - but I'm afraid it might ruin the digital windows... its hard to say

if you can't - it won't matter to me - I like the skin anyway

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.

the reason I can't see the jaggies is probably because my monitor is quite aways away from me...there's a good 5 feet between my head and my monitor...well maybe not that much, but close to it

in the mb it's supposed to be cut away...that's what I meant for it to be like

I've taken out the white border part on top of the time box thing so that it's not embedded into the white

These are just suggestions Supey in which I think the Mb and EQ would appear better.. but as you have planned them to look as they are, thats fair enough.

and my monitor is too bright - that's why only I can see my skins (no seriously, some of my skins are really too dark)
Don't wanna sound like an ass, but what's 5 feet in meters?
Like your skin, would definitely d/l it. I only don't like your titlebar caption, my suggestion is to delete it; and also your winbuttons, make them 3D! These thin lines don't match the smooth appearance of your frame.

Nini - the winbuttons/title are supposed to be in the same style as the cbuttons, which I really like, so I'm not going to change. Sorry. (and they are 3D when you click them. they're actually my favorite part of this skin.)

I was going to get something to measure the distance from my head to my monitor, but then I descovered that we own no tape-measures or yardsticks
but I did some rough guessing and decided my monitor is the square root of 16.25 feet away from my head, which is **click click click on calculator** 4.031128874
don't know what that is in meters, don't even know how to calulate it...

back on topic....

finished the cursors and WS, which means this skin is finished
here's a ss if you wanna see it with mikro and ws modes

if that gives you a crappy angelfire pic click here.

download here: _____|_____

[offtopic]that's my theme song playing there[/offtopic]

[edit]wow...that's really crappy...everything's a loadblock
angelfire suckz
but I can't log in to my freeservers acount - keeps giving me an error can't find page thing
anyone have any suggestions for free hosting?
anywayz, hopefully you can be not lazy and right-click, go to properties, and cut and paste the url into the address line[/edit]
