Lunchbreak doodle

Started this little doodle in my lunchbreak yesterday. lol

It wasn't meant to be a skin but it kinda developed. If anybody's interrested in seing this turn into a real skin let me know - Then I'll get serious with this one...it could turn out as a cute little skin.

Nice gadget rasman
You was lately watched the xXx movie or any Jabes Bond?
I believe you should continue it, you never know how this can me transformed while playing with it on Photoshop.

I would suggest you "fix" the prespective of the song text, make it more "wide" to fit better on the semi-closed LCD.

PS: This gadget could be a women-style skin also, imagine a babe to pull her crayon from this and communicate with a camera to a HQ centre. (Conspiracy thoughts)

Make a test and replace the blue body with a dark red colored one

No...I haven't seen the latest bond movie or xXx for that matter I usually don't look for inspiration anywhere...I just play around in PS with the styles I'm familiar with.

Even if the text is perspectively "incorrect" I kinda like it as it is. Anyway fonts are most likely not final if I deside to work on this further.

KEEP ON THIS Raz.

It's nice to see something stylish but unusual, so many skins these days all follow the same tired old pattern *no offence anyone*

It's nice while not being in your face. I don't care what Vag says, keep the colors and the styling.

I'd use this as it is if you make the other windows match this (or better yet pop up in the visualization window.

Good shape but is there any way you could break away from the way overdone circle buttoms. Maybe put them in a sequence that has a similar shape as the body of the skin.

Thanks guys...

Guess this means I should work further on this one

The buttons are "overdone" on purpose. I think they add to the almost cartoonish appearance of the skin. By no means it should be looked on as a realistic skin. I think my buttons fit perfectly...but I'll look into your idea with shaping the buttons some more and see if it will work.

I just think that you have creative ideas and just about every new ss of a skin that is being started has circle buttons. I think you could come up with something interesting because imo it detracts from the rest.

how many houers lunchbreak do you got..?
yes, you should really continiue this skin! and I like the buttons as they are, especially the "play" button, it makes it look like a nuclearbomb-briefcase or whatever you call it.. when you press it, it would pe cool if the lights (indicating volume and position) would light up from the middel and up, and then down again when you press the play button.
it's good to see a cartoonish skin, most people try to make the skin as realistic as posible, thats nice too, but it's good with some change..
yeah, and the flip idea was good. make it close (like a laptop) into minimode (or whatevermode)..
keep it up!

A little hour indicavia...it's made in two lunchbreaks

I won't have time to play with this one as much as I would like the next few days. I'm too freakin' busy at work and have to work all weekend

but...

Here's your reddish one vag

This time testing an exaggerated heavy button look.

the new buttons were nice (altough the playbutton maybe was a tad too big)
but I think the blue colour was much better..

The original color is blue - it'll stay that way.

I just like to spice up the screenshots I post so you can get an idea on how it could look when colorthemed.

raz I bet you asked your wife huh?
You see? it's made for females I think, it's like a must for them when will be released.

Nice , I'm a man but on the red edition seems more clean to me.
Keep it up my friend and I'm sure you'll give some more lunchbrakes to finish this and it's components etc.

lol vag she hasn't seen it yet..if she did, it would be more like "oh..nice!...what's that?"...actually she's wouldn't give a damn and curse my puter and PS to hell lmao!

I'm not so sure how serious I'll get with this one. It's a pain in the ass for me working with the perspective. We'll see...I'll give it a few more shots when there's time.

Damn! who *bumped* this? J/K

I've lost interrest in finishing this. I can't find time for PS-fun these days. When I find some time to make another skin after I've finish up Invicta, I'll probably work on a completely new design.
