    I really like the first one where the writing is not very dark. This skin is going to be very nice, can't wait to see to it in my ride.

    Congratulations! These look fabulous! One thing I am concerned about is please try to keep all your buttons as big as possible. Some skins have so much detail, the buttons are small and overall although they look awesome, they are not usable easily while driving.

    Keep up the good work!

    verrry nice job. However, I really do feel that the font you used for the buttons is a little too gothic- just creepy. I'd encourage you to please try some other fonts that flow with the surreal background. Otherwise, excellent work.

    a glimpse into the ideas for the audio player, (ps audio browser would look very similar)





    again please give me feedback, all the comments you guys are saying, i am takin into consideration, and i am changing things, as for vw blue, once the skin is fully complete, i will have the ability to change water texture, sky color, clouds, and a whole lot more, just wanna make sure i get the basic idea down first before i change colors, hahah

    as for the button issue, yeah i am trying to keep they pretty big for two main reasons, one easy to operate (i have big hands & you know what they say about that), and the second reason is, to make some buttons look cool when they are pressed or hovered on, i needed to make most of the buttons big, ie, the preview for the audio player the first pic, each of those are glass plates that will give a button function like play or stop, but when pressed the glass plate is going to slide back same with the second pic each "street sign" will look like it is bending backwards from u pushing it, it should come out pretty good, thanks again,

    I've always been a fan of Garamond. I don't know how suitable it would be in this situation.

    • Font from main screen (probably add icons or something)
    • eventually different colors for different people
    • alot more


    some pics of the skin in action, screenshots from my cp


    not final fonts




    i am pressing the fwd button to change track, and you can see it has pushed back from all the others, and i know the buttons are a little dark i am working on that lol
