I have been slowly writing my own front end for the last few months. Like everyone else, it is complete skinable. One problem, I stink at graphics. I can do the basics but I have no idea how to make a brushed metal look. I was wondering if some one could make me an 800x600 brushed metal image that I could use as the basis of my skin. Adding in buttons and all that should be ok, I just don't have a good back to start from. Thanks for your help.
Edit: Yes, the program will eventually end up being posted here I hope. I am just waiting till it works and is stable.
Search for PSDs. There are really good examples :)
