Daily Deviation

Given 2003-05-13
amber orb by digitalchet is a refreshingly unique skin that is really fun to use. I like it's lack of color, so to speak, and simple style. It is always nice to see someone use a design technique that is rarely used and this skin is the epitome of that. (Selected by $jark) ( Featured by jark )

Thanks for all your feedback guys. I'll try to answer all your questions briefly going from the bottom up.

'sixhours - Yeah, this can be done in different colour but since I've made this skin so WindowBlinds, which has a skin colouring feature, I didn't bother to make extra colour themes.

mojomonke - I had originally planned for this skin to have animated buttons but decided against it to make the skin a little faster and lighter. I left the blue start button because I got tired of all the yellow everywhere so I wanted a break from the usual somewhere. ;)

sonictsunami - I'd make something for Linux if I used it but since I don't I'd have no idea how to go about it. I'm open to having my skins ported to the Linux platform if that's possible. Contact me if your interested.

spritefic - Same as above, only replace Linux with StyleXP. ;)

Thanks to everyone else who posted. Your feedback is much apprecited.

Very slick! :) (Smile) And congrats on the DD!

I'm incredibly inexperienced when it comes to windows skins, but can you do this in different colors?

A pretty difficult colour to use but you've made a very impressive skin.

omg this is awesome! I think this is the skin I have been lookin for ever since I got windowblinds...

*mojomonkee, I'm assuming they put the blue in there to contrast all of the yellow- the start menu is pretty commonly used, and It being blue vs all of the yellow draws your eyes to it...

This is easily a +fav :) (Smile)
