I like the subdued color choices, and the piece has an overall serene kind of smoothness to it. The choice of wallpaper really helps to emphasize the point. The fonts need to be more consistent with each other, that way the piece has a more refined or sophisticated feel. These are the kind of artistic touches that (when done well) can help a skin like this compete with the "Master Skins" that are so popular. Personally, I'd recommend using the font that's in the preview text (or something just as readable) for the title bars and the nameplate in the Start menu. Pick one font and try to stick with it; SkinStudio has features that can help you out there. You might also want to be careful with the shading of the window buttons in the top right corner.

Overall, this skin has a LOT of potential, and I'm excited to see where you can push the design creatively.

I'm really sure what you mean about the fonts being consistent with each other, because the same font is used throughout the skin. It's still a work in progress, so I'll look at it a bit more closely. Thanks for the comment.

That was supposed to read I'm NOT really sure what you mean...above. Oops.

Imzadi, this is an awesome WB. The platinum shade you have used is perfect as is the metalized green accent shade. I don't know what Sum Dum Guy means either regarding the fonts. Actually, practically all them are Verdana so that's pretty consistent. Really good work!!

I didn't include the wall because I was trying to keep the file size down. I'll put it in the final version.
