    Digital Beta Skin Ideas

    I wanted to start a new thread for the skins of the Digital Beta, that JohnWPB has been working hard on. The backend of the skin is somewhat based on Blue Devil.

    I have a couple of color variations that JohnWPB and I talked about, but wanted to get some feedback. These particular variation have not been developed fully, and won't unless there is some interest.

    As a reminder, the ones that have been completed thus far are: Blue, Copper (Orange), Burl Wood, Brushed Metal, Red, Steel Denim, Purple, Gray, and Teal

    Here are the three we are seeking feedback on:


    Brown Leather


    Lt. Gray Leather


    Scale

    Please let me know what you guys think.

    the brown leather has potential and looks the best out of the three. The other two not so hot, esp the last one. I would add some seams to the leather around the edges, that may make it look more realistic and i would make all the buttons plastic and the top display area a lcd display area.

    IMO, there is something not quite right with the last one. maybe it's the scale background that makes it look to busy.
    The top one is nice. I would like to see it with liquid's suggestions. That would be interesting.
    The second one needs a little more contrast with the clock area.

    I like the 1st one too, the brown looks better than the rest....and if the big buttons icons had no background a light black shadow will make them come out nice.

    I like the first two also. LS suggestion sounds great - some stitching in key areas would look outstanding!

    This is my favorite one that Toons did:


    Here is a version that looks very similar to the BMV2 style by using a similar background:



    And here are some more standard colors:










    Notice how some of the icons in the skin take on the color of the background.
