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! )

Progress Update:

I've never done shell animations for xp before. I found it to be pretty easy, I just need to tweak my graphics. My animation is flawless, but I made the graphics too dark!

Shell pictures almost done. Once xp light is done, xp dark will take about an hour to generate; Then to test both.

 

There are now 2 wallpapers up in the galleries.

Excellent work, my friend!  Maybe I'll work up the nerve (and find the time  ) to make a WB in the near future

Thanks! I've been using it from the beginning, even when it wasn't so usable; but it is now, and very much so IMO.

It's done!

I'm getting ready to upload it now. Once it's in the galleries, then anyone making matching skins may also upload their skins to the appropriate galleries.

i.e.- PuterDudeJim, Webgizmos, the AVMan.
