not bad - kinda christmassy - too flat for my tastes though

keep it up!

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.

Maybe make them with a border like vol/bal.
3D effect: I'm not very good at this but if you're using PSP you can try the cutout (or how it's called) feature.You can create a nice bevelled border with it.



The skin love webring

if you're using MSPaint to make this, you can outline things that are red with like a darker shade of red, then outline it again with an even darker shade of red and it will look a little more 3D
you can define custom colors by double clicking one of the colors - you'll get a new windows - and a button towards the bottom that says "define custom color" - click that button and you'll see windows color palette - you should do fine from there

if you are using PSP - select areas and add cutout effects, drop shadow effects, bevel effects - these are all built into the program under the "effects" label on the main menu, then go to "3D effects"

if you're using photoshop - you're more advanced than I am

looks like a good start, but there's some stuff I suggest you change

-the eq sliders are great, but the vol/bal/pos are kind of boring...why don't you make those in the same style of th eq sliders?
-the black background of the vis and text looks bad imo, make it green so it matches
-I think the cbuttons are also a bit plain, maybe add a slight 3D effect witht he green? you can do this easily by adding a darker shade of green around the outside of the green that's already there, then a lighter shade of green around the inside
-the shuf/rep/eq/pl/on/auto/presets buttons are just the text off of the base skins' buttons if I'm correct...you should change those around and make them original. for the shuf/rep I would suggest using symbols and make them in the same style as the cbuttons. for the others, at least change the font
-the cbuttons/scroll buttons/resize button on the pl are the same as the base skin also, edit those a bit
-I would also suggest making the p scroll bar the same as the eq slider
-the corner buttons ( -_x ) seam a bit too big I think...try using smaller symbols
-the stereo button is a bit unoriginal also, maybe try using symbols for monoster?

this skin looks promising...look into a few of those suggestions and it could be much better imo. all of these things only take a few minutes to change, some only seconds

I like them pretty much how they are!!! or you could just copy the same idea what you have in the main windows cbutton element.

like I said I normally don't like flat skins but this one? this one I definitely like
I don't know what it is - its just

definitely finish the avs and minibrowser - you can't leave them out!! and I like the fact that you did not repeat the gray on the playlist button text that you used in the main cbuttons - the red is much nicer (but don't change the cbuttons - i assume they turn red when pressed, yes?)

If anyone can find any of the skins I made please email them to Forevever@aol.com

man the text and numbers background colour being black clashes against the green foreground.. also the actual numbers are a bit original, maybe you might want to change these next time, make them a little bolder.

I would personally like to see the eq bar style in a border around the components (main, eq, pl) - but otherwise its a fairly decent skin - keep going - you'll get better and it will get much easier.
