The dark text on a dark background makes it really hard to read the text. It also looks like on some of the bits you recolored the default skin graphics.

yes - sorry about that - I'm new and don't really know how to change the text color . Forgot to mention that I'm still updating it - and I'll try and fix it up for you

This skin needs A LOT of work. You made a good effort, and I know this is your first skin, so I will simply list some things that I think would make this skin better...

1) You still haven't changed the font color, the Toolbar, Taskbar and Menu font colors all need to be changed, as you cannot see black on black text too well.
2) The shellstyles don't blend very well, you need to recolor the Glyphs and make them blend more with the black background. Same goes for the sidepanel background.
3) The min/max/close buttons could use some mouseovers, and make the signs a bit easier to read.

Those are the main things I see that would drasticlly improve this skin. I highly suggest you read this article written by TheGreenReaper. http://www.zen9361.zen.co.uk/mgs/index.html

The most important thing is don't give up, nobody makes great skins their first time out, the only way you will get better and learn is by practicing. I wish you luck on the future of this skin or your next.

Ok thanks Hus - I just read the article by TheGreenReaper - and I see that I need to improve this skin a lot.

I've started it already, and I've fixed the min/max/close buttons, but am still trying to do the ShellStyle - why am I talking - time to update
