new skin (collab with BH)

Most of you was right, me and BH are teaming up. This is the first (of many with any luck) skin we have started. the main is done and the EQ is with BH for editing. this is a SS of it so far



Comments, sugestions, improvements all welcome

btw, keep your eyes open, the sites coming soon....

It kicks ass if you want my opinion. I like the different shades of metal you have, and the blue goes well. I'll beta test it for you if you want.

That's a sweet skin.
Quibbles: No quit, min, windowshade, menu buttons. Are you going to put those in or are you leaving them out to keep it clean? Some indication where they are would be nice.
Shuff/rep text is a little blurry - not as easy to read as the cbutton text.
The shuff/rep buttons also seem a bit fuzzier than the cbuttons.
Is it going to have a posbar?
One more minor thing - it's hard to tell what level the various metal parts are - it's got sort of an Escher(?) thing going right now, where one piece looks higher on one side, then lower on the other side. I guess the best example of what I'm talking about would be the lighter cbutton metal - it looks like the darker metal is jutting out just a bit more on the left, but it looks like the lighter metal is jutting out just a bit more on the right. Make sense?

All that said, I like it, and it will get a dl from me when done!

he ran off with the viscolor.txt before i could take the pic. oh well, it works, just need a better idea for the pl stacks (they suck), mb, avs and windowshade modes. should be done tomorrow afternioon (i have to work tomorrow ). I'll also be putting in ws/min/quit buttons and un-fuzzing the monoster and shufrep labels.

It's hella sweet until you get to the playlist. That part just doesn't seem to jell with the rest, and it looks flat. The stacks are a big part of that, and also I guess the fact that you have a nice gradient on the main and eq that you can't really carry over due to the resizing. The thing that stands out on the main and eq to me is that the corners seem to be of the lighter metal, while the corners on the pl are darker.
I'm not sure I like the eq slider background - seems a bit flat.

Overall though - beauty!

I agree, the playlist lacks the metal plate coverings that the main and the eq have. Maybe adding some more would add more texture to it.

Other than that, great job.

I dont like the pl stack buttons either, but the rest of the skin looks pretty good so far.

to me the 3 windows dont seem to flow. the main is very squared off looking while it doesnt really align with the windows below. i dont mind the colours, just the layout is poor if ur plan was to make the skin flow.

The plan was just to make a kick ass skin that gose with the upcoming site ( bh is being lazy and skinning instead of codeing ) we'll fix a few things up and see what looks good and what dosn't. so far i really love it the pl is abit odd but you can't do much with it really. the pl avs and mb is my enemy, we'll fix them tho, get ready for a download soon
