Penthouse WB - Winners announced Pg 14

Contemporary Elegance

Thursday, May 27, 2010 by vStyler | Discussion: WinCustomize Talk


Well, if I sit still for too long my brain starts hurting so here's what Ive decided on for my next theme after piddling around for a day or three with a few concepts.


Rendered in Cinema 4D with lots of post work in PS, a warm, contemporary type skin with soft colorful mood lighting reminiscent of modern stainless counter-tops and luxury appliances. Perhaps bordering a little on futuristic.


Hopefully it'll turn out sharp, no idea what the rest will look like but I'm very happy with its beginnings.


The thread header is Penthouse - Contemporary Elegance , Syd and I (she's always a great help) must have gone through 200 before deciding on it.


Gonna run a little contest, for the funniest caption after Penthouse -


example: Penthouse - Damn, who drank all the caviar!  ....  You get the idea


Enter as many times as you like but no pics please. Winner gets the Final Blind when it is finished and their choice of 2 others of mine which they may not have or would like to gift to someone.


Will post updates as I tinker along with the project.

Good name! It does remind me of a swanky uptown condo...sleek and modern looking.

Thank you everyone


Updated OP screeny. That wood was grating on my nerves

It looks like a distinct departure from all the skins of yours that I know of, or anybody else's for that matter. There's lots of subtlety in the shadowing and colouration that make it look like a real thing. It's another one of those "I've never seen anything like it" skins.

That wood was grating on my nerves

The wood actually looked nice...kind of added to it and the startmenu stood out a bit more. But that looks nice as well.

WOW Vstyler this looks incredible. I love the way you have mixed the colors.

Penthouse-Sophisticated simplicity.

Fuzzy Logic
Reply #15 Friday, May 28, 2010 4:58 AM

Penthouse - for consenting adults only...  oops...

That's a nice looking start menu you have there

Reply #16 Friday, May 28, 2010 6:28 AM

Penthouse - For members only


That's the first. Get three tries right?

Reply #17 Friday, May 28, 2010 6:36 AM

Penthouse - what no bunnies !

Reply #18 Friday, May 28, 2010 6:54 AM

Very cool !!   You just keep raising the bar my friend!!!!!!!

Reply #19 Friday, May 28, 2010 7:06 AM

Did someone say bunnies 

Looks fantastic V, this is going to be a must have.

Elegant skin beginning here, v. Has really good possibilities. Looks very polished and professional.

As for the naming thing, my heart's not in it just yet. Sorry, bud...I'm sure you understand.

Besides, there are far wittier folks than I here.

Looking forward with lots of interest to how it develops.

This is a tad OT, but I do think that you would be the ideal person, and Master skinner to put together a series of instructional vids for beginning skinners on "How To: A Step by Step Approach - by vStyler".
