  • Im making my first skin

    Im currently working on my first attempt at a skin for RR. I have decided to get all the graphic aspects out of the way first. This is the beginning of the manu i still have to decide on location of where the buttons will be and there overall shape. any opinions would be appreciated.

    the look is beautiful
    but i'd try something more edgy, not so soft and smoth bevel would make the metalic aspect more realistic

        Yeah I also agree that the bevel is too soft. However, that might be the look you're going for?

          Looks good so far.

          So you going for flash etc?

          And what ideas do you have for the labels...are you going for icons / text or both?

          Personally I'd try purely icons - tasteful though..! I know there are a number of sites (particularly lunix) that offer very beautiful icons.

                  keep up the good work

                  i'd use a little less border and not SO edgy, but i like more the last edgy look. something in the middle (tending to the last) is the wya to go IMO
                  some better anti-aliasing on the top display would be nice too
                  but the central globe is just PERFECT. real art work

                    I would remove the extreme bevel, really it is un needed.

                      i prefer the earlier screenshots.. not really a fan of the photoshop bezel tool.

                      the four little blue dots don't line up properly.. makes everything look on a bit of a slope :P

                      the top display area certainly needs some feathering/antialiasing.. i've found photoshop doesn't feather the magic wand selection tool so when you fill/cut out using that, you just get jagged edges. CS3 seems to be better I think. better off to use rounded rectangle tool.

                      look forward to seeing some more content within the layout

                            They are kinda ok. Hard to read if this is to be used for a daytime skin, for night skin it seems anything goes... clean up some of the edges, and you have something good here...
