Great work! You might like to know that I highlighted this theme at Winstep.net.

I'd like to point out a couple of details, though (hope you don't mind):

The Startbar and Startbar Section Separator bitmaps should have a Top Tile value of 7 and a Bottom Tile value of 3 instead of being 0 as they currently are. This is because the Startbar won't look right as it is if you expand it to show more than a single row of tasklist buttons (mine always shows two rows because I like to keep my WorkShelf modules neatly captured into the NextSTART Startbar).

The Start Button also won't look right if the Startbar is multi-row. The Start Button bitmaps can be made transparent if you set the background to RGB(255,0,255), so I would suggest erasing the extra bits around the actual eliptical button with this color, leaving only the button itself and the shaddows around it (I'm currently adding GDI+ and PNG file support to WorkShelf and NextSTART, so this kind of effects will be a lot easier to achieve when the next versions come out - specially the alpha blended shaddows).

I would also suggest specifying bluish Back, Grid and Graph colors for the in-shelf meters to go along with the theme (i.e. Settings panel of each of the meters, NOT Advanced Skinning panel) - specially for the Net Meter... that pink Back color not only looks awful if you have an in-shelf net meter, it will also render the module basically transparent if you capture it into the NextSTART Startbar.

Finally, you forgot to remove the inverted tab bitmaps for WorkShelf (wstabaF, etc...). Some people like to run WorkShelf inverted at the top of the screen. As it is, they will get the tab bitmaps from your previous Cyclops theme.

Again, hope you don't mind the constructive criticism... Great Theme!

Great theme. If possible can you set the color to yellow instead of blue. I use the forced-coloring in wb5 and mines is set to yellow, I think it looks neat that way. Just wondering if you could do the same for this theme. Keep up the good work! Awesome job!

ramesese - You need a graphics program like Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop, then you have to colorize each bitmap, then transfer the colorized portion (Copy it to...), the original bitmap so as the frame bitmap is unaltered, etc., etc. It would be a labor, to say the least. Good luck!
