Polaris WB - WIP

tinker tinker.. hammer, smack..kick.. curse..

Friday, October 2, 2009 by vStyler | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

 

After doing a very dark theme, I enjoy using it so much I've decided to do another dark, but less dark theme, without the need for a substyle

I'm calling it Polaris for a couple of reasons, has rather a radioactive look and my father served as first weapons officer on the Polaris class nuclear sub H.M.S Resolution for many years. One of 4 Polaris class subs the British navy had back then, all since decomissioned. The orange really has no significance other than it is one of the better.. glowey colors and goes really well with a dark grey\blue.... oh... and it just happens to be October

 

Anyway.. so far so good, will post screens as I have them. I'm a bit disappointed in the lack of orange matching icons available. There are a couple of decent sets but nothing that matches perfectly and IP's recoloring feature is rather meagre. Bit disappointed on that front. Maybe a certain someone wants to step up

 

I see after laying some elements out together than some of the oranges need matched up slightly better... oh well.. is a WIP..It'll get sorted out... all in good time.

 

Cheers.

I feel it's dreadfully unfair that you were blessed with all that talent and I, none.


Don't let it fool ya.. 95% is hard work, stick-to-it-ivness and pride. I'm no more talented than the next girl.

I really believe anyone could do a pretty good job on a WB with their mind firmly set on course.

And so modest too!! John, you are talented and this one is sold also, I assume it's a Master skin.

Excellent color scheme. I'll have to add this one to my collection.

Damn.  I'm looking at it John and yeah that orange is a tough one.

I've browsed several galleries trying to match it up with different things.

Looks like a job for MaxStyles.

Tis another work of true beauty bro because your dark themes are never too dark!

 

Personally I'm still stuck on Naked, Noir and VOX

Thanks guys,

CP, the set i'm using works pretty durn well, I would like to see Skinhit pop in and volunteer even a compact set but I understand the time involved in making an IP so looks like will have to do with the set I'm using... which actually works great with it or possibly.. trying my own hand at it.

 

 

GO JAGS !!!!

At first glance I was reminded of "Eyegrabber" by Dangeruss...

"For WindowBlinds ver 1.2"... am I showing my age?

You might want to try the CP39 IconPackager by pinchecl. It's about the right orange, and is more uniformly orange than the package you're using in the screenshot.

Get it here:  http://pinchecl.wincustomize.com/skins.aspx?skinid=1244&libid=2

Thanks WG

Jim... ok.. so.. get on with it


Cafeend - If you mean there is orange in it.. yep!

 

Willistuder - They are a bit duller orange than whatI've used and honestly.. I cant even get them to load using the format they are in. In addition, more than likely they don't have Vista live folders being as old as they are. Closer than almost anything else I have found though.
