Yes! its me again!

Well I finally recovered this account #1, for those of you who a.) cared and b.) didn't notice.

with all the new skins flyin around I figured I would toss mine into the mix. its just something I drew up with the little "pencil" tool, and it feels like it took forever.

opinions are very welcome.

PS: as far as I remember .png's are ok here, but let me know if someone can't see it.

I hope the orange isn't transparent on the inside of the frame! It looks good.

Cleanup-esque... hehehe... lovin' the skin, Tac.

The orange is a nice touch... I wish you'd implement some of the colours in your avatar into the skin. It'd give it some more variety.

I like the looks of this, I like the orange aswell I'm strange. Maybe tone it down a little though if it's staying.

What? Now I'm confused. Is the orange transparent or not?

Is this skin inspired by your aborted "Jumbotron" skin?

I likes it. Keep the orange. The orange is nice. I'm divided on the "adding more colour" issue. I'm leaning towards "not adding more colour".

The thing I like best (besides the orange) are the eq/pl buttons. They look very super keen. Unfortunately, they don't fit in as smoothly with all the other elements which are a bit more, uh . . . dotty. (Sorry. My vocabulary has just left me in search of less foggy, um . . . things.)

Nice to see you back. Ever considered donating a Mikro skin to the Skin Lovin' Mikro pack?

oy! well. the orange was just tossed in to show where the transparency was, but since the cry of the people seems to be "color is good! or not! yes!" I may very well add in some colors.

I like the whole "cleanup-esque" thing . I like your work cleanup, and I would like to think of it as an inspiration.

This skin is actually inspired by the dozen(s) of half finished skins I had sitting around. I picked a little bit from each project that I liked, and mixed it all together; then I started over with something brand new. or something like that. sleep deprivation does weird things man.

I like most of the imo original elements that are used such as the buttons, volumebar and balancebar. I would only choose for a posbar in the style of the metallic frame though and make the metal shine more.

well, I can't really make it anymore shinier, since the light parts are already 255 x3. As to the other point, I had tried a Posbar that cut across the LCD, and was part of the frame. I didn't like it as much, but let me see if I can dig it up.

Does anyone want a .wsz? its only the main...

hey this is my skin :P not simon's theology corner.

Shiny metal? Pah!

I like bits from both options. I think I'm more partial to the colour version, just not the colour you've chosen (I reeeeely like orange, though ). I'd like to see the black and white titlebar coloured up and stuck on the colour version.

If the shuffle button works like I think will, it's goney be cool. I also like the "platforms" for the kbps and the kHz. Nifty!

And since you're asking, I prefer to look at a .wsz when all three windows have been at least partially skinned. Still, I am but a minnow in a stormy sea of opinion....

Pick some colors then. I am un inspired. and no, the shuffle button doesn't explode if thats what you were hoping for. it might later though.

you really like the older titlebar better? huh. well, I dunno, maybe the newer one is a bit blank in those larger areas.

Also, I might change the interface up a bit, since some of the stuff on the right doesn't quite fit the theme of the rest of the "LCD"

Hehe... that Megaman reminds me of another Strong Bad e-mail, where Strong Bad imagines what he would look like in a Japanese cartoon...

"Okay... so first of all... my head... would have to be a little pig... with real big eyes... get ridda mah thumbs, make me all shiny. My boots - would be a whole lot cooler. Like - robot boots. And for some reason... I got bloo hair. Ya gotta have bloo hair. Then there's my mouth. Real tiny when it's closed... ridiulously huge when it's open. Then you basically just put me in space and make me fly around in cool poses!"

Um . . . er . . . . how about greygreen? Greengreen? Orange? (Say it with a french accent, it'll sound better). I'm really into grey-green right now. And I'm thinking the shuffle button will be spelled out via cursor. Or maybe that's just another skin I've seen.

I quite agree, but please use those elements in another skin 'cause they look really cool!
