Skin Preview

My third skin, a crappy one at that (well, all of them are crappy), but I'm done the Main Window.

How's it look?

not bad, I'd like to see some more detail though

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.

I made it in MS Paint, and I always wonder what "detail" is in MS Paint.

I'm not planning to publish it, it's just for myself, and I like simple skins. All my skins are quite simple and easy on the eyes. I don't make crazy skins like Drew and his BlueTechAmp (crazy as in oh-my-God kinda talent). You could probably make BlueTechAmp in Paint, but who'd want to take the time?

LOL I surely wouldn't - I tried to make a skin using MSPaint - about 4 hours into it I realized it was stupid to spend 4 hours doing something I could've done in 4 minutes

I like this skin, especially the buttons, especially the posbar button

but maybe instead of just outlining all of the normal areas you could make it with different areas connected and what-not....kind of hard to explain what I mean...

I understand. I did that with my second skin, Simple Amp. Unfortunately, no screenshot (I'm lazy). Just download the skin.

This is an older version, I haven't zipped my final yet, because I am lazy, and it's kinda just for myself. This version doesn't have the MB done or cursors.

I think this is what you mean, I connected the title bars with all the windows, though when put in windowshade, some of the windows look odd since I had to cut off a part of the border for it to look right.

I've answered to the "Detail" cries. But it still looks bad.

Too lazy to make it into a PNG..

stttafffy, are you like mr. audiogalaxy satellite or something? I like that skin of yours.

Cleanup, I reallylike your skinstoo - nice and simple - just like me. I think the mono/stereo need to be changed - perhaps symbols or text but not a button - since it's an indicator.

Other than that and perhaps more consistent labelling, this is great.

woweee...this new version looks like a totally diffreent skin. I like much

I would suggest adding a grey border around the blue one and either change the purpley blue color to the blue is the other parts of the skin or use it more so that it's not as out of place. you could make lots of wire-type things

stttafffy, you sound as if you think no one ever takes the time to make skins in MSPaint and you're the only person that does, and you're special...
well, you're not special. not at all
I'm just kidding!

actually I wuv wusing MSP...I have maked many Paint skins (many being 3.1)

you're skin is very nice, but (and don't take this the wrong way) it's no "marvel of MSPainting". I am in no way saying your skin sucks. it's one of the best MSPaint skins I've seen. what I'm calling a "marvel of MSPainting" is creating a metal texture like what I've attached. if anyone can do this in MSPaint, you have too much time on your handsand I admire that

Why are metal and dimension valued above everything else? There are some really great metal skins, and some bad flat skins, but there are also great flat skins and bad metal skins. If you make something look slightly metallic and three-dimensional, everyone will love it, even if it's crap, but if you make something two dimensional, even if it's really good, people will complain and tell you to add some shadows or something.

you have a good point

but the only reason I used a 3-D metallic texture for this example is because that type of thing is very difficult with MSPaint
most 2-D things just require a nice shape for them to look cool, and that's pretty easy to achieve in MSPaint
but since MSPaint has no filter effects and a much smaller selection of tools, 3-D stuff is quite difficult unless it's just a standard 2-pixel bevel (which you can do with only using the default colors)

You don't need to use the default colours. For grey buttons, I change a shade of grey slightly. It actually looks pretty good. If you look closely on my newest main.bmp, the Number/Vis display is bevelled. Though it doesn't show up well on the top, it does on the bottom. The most simple things can be very effective.

I find MS Paint quite capable of making Winamp skins.

i like msp better than photoshop, but that will change once i get ok at photoshop.
supey, those gradiess are possible, but you will do a lot of averaging of rgb values! (like days worth)
that would be a feat. if someone wanted to do that, it would fall under the realm of masochism. i shoudl finish my skin. ill start back up now, now i can get that god-awful 'man' skin off my winamp
