    yep, im making a skin too

    ok, i was looking at all of the skins tonite and I got inspired
    I threw this together in about an hour (first 30 min finding icons )
    I made an on and off screen so when you mouse over it shows the icons different, but I think im just going to use the on screen as the main screen. The drop shadows make the text much easier to read.

    anyway, what do you all think?

    I made it with buttons too. I used the off screen to do these, so you can see the different in the visibility of the text. Obviously with the buttons I would recenter all of the text, and i would again use the drop shadows.

    Which do you think would be a better path? buttons or nothin

    That is true, but it doesnt hurt to use already made icons. It all depends on the effect you are going for. If you want photorealistic icons, its kinda hard to make your own if you dont own all the items.

    You could make this skin look a lot better using antialiasing. It smoothens the edges. I've got like a 20/5 vision which is far better than 20/20 vision and the jagged edges kinda bothers me a bit. If you would like to get a better idea of antialiasing - check out my skin at... http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...378#post134378
