Venom - WIP

XP, Vista and Win 7

Monday, March 22, 2010 by vStyler | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk

k, so the concept was to get as far away from the last theme I did as possible and still be able to skin Win 7 completely and correctly.

 

I also wanted to make a red and black theme that took advantage of the dramatic contrasts that this color combo can achieve.

 

Devilish, menacing, provokative, I dunno.. thats what is running through my head as I throw this PS mockup together.

 

I suppose I will be doing a light and dark windows version as I dont see anyway around it...

 

...so this one may take a while to complete but here it is in it early.. fluid stage.

 

Oh and I may just keep the small branding text... cos I know would approve 

 

will post updates as they are formulated.

Looks really great. I like the design. One thing i dont like is that startbutton. I would like to see a round one, in that devilish red, of course with a black winflag.

I think this is the only start button I will be doing, I would end up with 12 substyles if I added a second. I may possibly include a winflag (orb) one that folks can drop in the folder to overwite. In fact.. I will.

..personally, the SB is one of my fav. parts of it.

 

We'll see.. thanks

Have to agree with others, this is one to watch as you go through the process.

I think it's nice to have start buttons that reflect the character of the blind....so many round ones out there....this one makes a cool change.....and love the way it mimics the start menu......still, a winflag one thrown in the folder too....gives people choices....

The luminescent effect with the red is very cool....gives it so much life....all looking very devilish....

Now that's a good idea.

Damn hot vStyler, can't wait to see the Final Version. But i think the Startbutton could be better Some Windows Flag or something. But hey, ...it will be a Masterpiece, like everything you released. So, keep up the great work.

I like the start button very very much, it is really nice to see something different than a winflag or orb!!!
