And then call your skin 'LG Chocolate Mobile ', you'd still get killed for copyright infringement even if you use the name,it's not yours to promote work with, just thought I should put you clear on that as you seem concerned by artistic copyright while not thinking about IP copyright...

Mind you, who is bothered? show me one example in the last few years where someone actually got sued for a skin copyright infringement, at worst you might see a 'remove our artwork note'

how about you only take the cell phone as a source of inspiration and mix in your own style? I'm not getting why people like to rebuild electronic devices 1:1 instead of creating something unique.

People like the familiarity that a recongnisable device brings, not everyone wants some fucking wierd looking shape taking up half their screen while they scratch their heads wondering where the play button is.

cosign.

rebuilding something 1:1 always shows how good you acctualy are and it is a good challenge for an artist and coder. Anyway i hope i will find someone who is interested to work on this project.

@Mr Jones: Does skin review work again? I have posted a skin today, is there a chance to see it on winamp.com one day?

You posted it today?, well, you'll have to wait the required length of time before it gets reviewed, I'm using your skin now actually, if I get time to review it I will.

/actually, I think you have a bug in it, if you mouse over the timer digits, the tooltips read like this...from left to right

Hours .. Minutes .. Hours .. milliseconds

Shouldn't that be
Hours .. Minutes .. Seconds .. milliseconds

WOW, I realy wished someone could make a LG chocolate skin
the KG800 in black and red slide mobile
would be the best.

Make the version with Square buttons in the middle
not the round one (round one is not nice)

Here is a photo (have bigger if needed):


My suggestion for the skin is:
1. make several sizes , but if you cant do that
make the size not to be too big.
but not too smale either.
having huge winamps skins is not nice

i think the size of Cell for winamp5
is good size not too big or too smale:
http://www.customize.org/details/46602
(you probaly want to make it higher in length)

2. try to add some animations to the screen

3. Add a option that can show the Artist Cd cover
as background image on the Mobile screen when playing a song, as you know the image cover is optained
by putting cover.jpg in the folder of the songs you are playing.

4. the Slidepanel where Mobil buttons (Call numbers)
use to be on the mobile you can put a Equalizer.
here creative ideas can also play a role.

5. It will be dificult to get the Glow-red sensor buttons
like Lg chocolate but is worth a try
it will look amazing and if the skins is done very good
it can be the best winamp skin ever.

6. The Animation equalizer on the screen
can move just like the mp3 player on the Lg chocolate.

7. You can make several Color themes
specialy the Pink and white one some will probaly apreciate it, but i rather prefer the Original
Black colors with Red glow buttons.
is important to make the buttons as flat as possible
just like the Lg chocolate.

Ok this was just some ideas.
the most important is not to make it too big or too smale
(or better make more sizes and color themes)
and make the 800KG is the best chocolate mobile.

I am also looking for a Msstyle Lg chocolate skin
so if anyone want to make that would be great
i mean glowing buttons in the tray,start when mousing over
I use Vista CG to msstyle and this is already possible with it, VB i dont like so much.

I already started decorating my Desktop like Lg chocolate
I started with this clock (it has glowing red color too):
http://www.customize.org/details/39680

Anyway i wish you good luck
and realy hope you get to make the Lg chocolate winamp skin.
I would love to test the skin (but i dont have any experience with skins can just give you feedback)
