This one's awesome Rob!�
I don't know why I didn't see this one before.
Must have been while I was still away.
This one's definately a keeper!
I personally am glad that the Dragon is opaque with the red glow around it.
I don't think it could look better any other way.
The only drawback I see, and this is only me, with my weird opinions, is the two tone Progress Bar.
The only reason why I say this is because you have this awesome, and I do mean awesome, looking BootSkin which bursts out of the screen practically 3 Dimensional, and there's the flat two tone bar.
I think myself personally that such a richly detailed image with such depth to it, should also have a Bar with depth as well.
Just something with some highlights and a little shading.
Here's an example. I took your Progress Bar Style, and gave it just a little depth to coincide and exist in harmony with your awesome image.
Here's the Image:

As you can see, it gives your image its continuing 3 Dimensional effect.

Now we'll show both Progress Bars side by side as to show the distinct differences between a 3D style and a flat 2D style.

Okay, enough of that, either way this one's a keeper for me!�

You're right your progress bars are much better,
but I would say as a matter of fact that your bootskins contain the most original progress bars I've ever seen. Even an old fart like myself (turned 35 this year, I ain't "springtime" no more, pretty soon I'll just be a memory �� ) can learn something new every now & then.

I'll use your progress bar style for my blue dragon bootskin when I release it (which is just a hue shift of the red one above - I'm getting lazy in my older years)

Thanks Johnny, I appreciate the tips - keep them coming! �

Thank You Rob for saying some of my BootSkins have some of the most original Progress Bars you've seen.�
I really appreciate it!�
They're okay on some. I usually go with a regular 3 Band Cylindrical Bar.

You really don't have to change out your Progress Bar if you don't want to.
I was just giving an opinion, that's all.
But thanks for being so cool about it!�

Hey Rob,

Like John, I must have missed this one������������ . You two amaze me. I've got something to shoot for. Nice PB, John. Thanks much for the 3D stuff. ���

Be well,
