Three thousand and ninetyfour bootskins...and the lion's share of them are some wall image grabbed from somewhere dithered and inserted into a renamed zip.

Wow...

What creative acumen.

Come on, people...how about some thought...effort..creativity...ART....originality.

S K I N N I N G

The world does NOT need another 3000 walls-converted-into-4bit-crappy-bootskins.

Time to become artisans, OK?

Not too sure that I like it yet....but hey, you're an Aussie....a Taswegian, no less, so I figured that I'd better download it to prop up support for our side, being so patriotic n' all.

But hey......IF I decide I don't like it, well I reckon that I can live with it.....bootscreen ain't on for long


Not saying its bad or anything....and that lightly dressed young lady in the foreground reminds me that I was young once ......yeah, I'll use it.

Post creative bootskins and they'll be gladly accepted.

....but make them ENTIRELY your own work....not someone else's wall image.

The fish-arm is disturbing. Luckily the another nearby detail tends to catch the eye's attention. Cool technique on the progress bar, looks like you just squished the full-sized image to a progress-bar size (so crazy it just might work)! Another minute spent placing the bar would have gotten you five stars.

Keep trying, you'll get the hang of bootskins.



PS I like the "probably works" dig implying you, like many bootskin authors, couldn't be bothered to see if it actually functioned.

Your point is absolutely valid Jafo - one of the most innovative & aesthetically dynamic is Adni's XPBII from August of '04 wherein here layered a 2D transparent enlarged font screen filling the entire boot over Microsoft's 3D Windows monogram with a blue wash & the font bolded in white - very crisp & in a league of its own - mind you one man's meat is another man's poison & aesthetics are a matter of personal taste - but I have found nothing I like better to introduce me to my system when I boot up

Ah....so often an 'educational piece' such as this is lost on people.

So...

I deleted 3 ratings.....a '10' [you MUST be kidding] and 2 '7's.... [still quite silly]...

The ones can remain, gladly....

When I say 'all your own work'...I mean like my 'other' boots.....where I physically drew the images, [you know, like a blank piece of paper...and dug out a pencil and/or paintbrush]..... apart from one which was a photo I personally took at the GrandPrix.

IF the images used were ORIGINALs.....and not something 'borrowed from the net' it would dramatically reduce the flood of boots because it would actually take longer than 2 minutes to make each one.

well hey Jafo...as long as they are aesthetic & have personal value to the respective PC owner, maybe others will like them as well.......but yeah, many are an attempt at just posting something with the author's name to say 'hey I am here', 'I exist' for validation purposes possibly....but your purist's point of view definitely has merit.

I think the ones on an 'educational piece' are the silly ratings, they either missed your point of uploading this or did get it and it p***ed them off.
I gave it a higher rating based on the message it was meant to convey not the skin.

No dramas, Cavan...but I'd preferred this to be low rated...as it is only pertinent to boot makers, not the general public...so doesn't need to be 'seen' by the casual user.  The low rating assures that...

So this 'bootskin' is a 'point' skin that � it doesn't require great skill to spin out of piss poor skin � be more creative � spend more time to get a better 'quality' skin.

Hmmm I actually think this beats your Bryce-Dolphin-PinkOrb-Brittney Spears-Wall

I gave it a one just to show my support for your cause anyway
