Carbon Fibre GTV: WIP

2nd blind attempt

Tuesday, February 3, 2009 by Mirsguy | Discussion: Sneak Previews

I began this new theme about 3 weeks ago.

I wanted to do a dark skin, but I didn't want to do glass. Glass can be over done. I wanted something more original. Also, I didn't want to do the black/blue combo. Though those colors look great together, once again, it can be over done.

Then I began to think back to when I first bought WindowBlinds... how I searched for a carbon fibre skin, and was left wanting...

When complete, this theme will also include ObjectDock backgrounds, a RightClick, and possibly a cursor (if I get the guts! )

Today I made an administrative decision: I changed directions slightly.

First, the name was changed to "Carbon Fibre GTV."

Second, due to conflicts over what should be light and what should be dark, I decided to do substyles for each. The light substyle will be called "Carbon Metal," and the dark substyle will be called "Carbon Graphite."

As it develops more, I will post more screenies.

Looks good.  I think the buttons shouldn't be carbon fibre though...maybe just a solid color.  Just my two cents.

More progress... Next step is to change the window frame buttons to look like the navigation buttons.

Progress has been a little slow; Work has been really busy. But getting paid is a good thing...

I'll send you some PSD's soon, Jim!

Looks great so far.  Haven't had the courage to try a WB yet.  Maybe some day...

You hit the nail on the head, Hallv! Sometimes it feels fun; sometimes it feels like self-inflicted torture!

The new start button for the light substyle... will be animated. I'm willing to accept constructive criticism on it; no one seemed to like the other start button...

It isn't necessarily an "either/or"....judging by what most of the skinners have written.
