I dont think this would be classed as an LCD skin. At least not yet anyway. It looks good though, i agree with dawg about the logo.

DA? forgive me but as you know I am stupid, so I don't get it.

About the skin,
It starts out good, and the logo looks nice, but the "orb" ain't very round, it looks like its pressed together a bit.

LCD = Liquid Crystal Display
How about calling it just "display", since there is no liquid crystal there?

little remodeling

few things:
1. yes the numbers will work, its all one color on every line, so im going to make the background of each number the same, and it will work, dont worry

2. the Stero button says "ON" in black, when its not stereo it will change to "OFF"

3. i have no idea what im going to do with my cbuttons, nor do i know what im going to have the shuffle and repeat buttons look like or the "OAIDV" thingy look liek eaither, no idea about the EQ or anythign else im just concentrating on the main right now, open to any suggestions.

hope you liek it so far

backgroun is a REAL dark red, but im thinking about changing the Hue and Saturation to a blue color when im finished, like merge visible and make the template and the metal unseen, this way it only changes the hue and saturation of what i want

not sure about that yet

Now that you mention it.....it does slightly.

IMO the cbuttons look a tad plain when compared to the rest of the skin. You've got some really nice detail going here...keep it up.

Dont stress...like i said, it does look slightly like kuki's skin, but the style is different and so is the layout....Most of my skins look like a bunch of other skins too...

Dont worry, i didnt mean that as a bad comment. And the two skins dont look at all that alike. I just meant the colours.



Yours looks great.

If you crop the buttons you won't have animations and the sliders will screw up when moved... be careful.

I just noticed that the background for nums_ex.bmp is a little different to the time area. Is that deliberate or have you not finished that area?

PL looks great.

that shine of light? thats diliberate, without it for some reason that side doesnt look rounded and bumped up liek it does now, it looks flast and gay, im going to make the "-" minus sign faded from bright to dark when u make it count down in time i think.

i dunno i kinda liek it liek that, thanks on the PL being great

i thought PL mightve ruined it a bit

the size helps a bit but I still think a different font would look better, arial is just too smooth for this skin
