Mozilla Firefox icon (PNG) was also made by me. Looks nice, ha ?
You better check your e-mail... I sent you 14 icons made by me (for various applications) and 2 very, very good looking icons (FireBird and Thunderbird). I don't know who made those 2, but guy is unbelievable artist... I thought you might want to have those in your ObjectDock too...

Cheers !

P.S. I checked your pngs... not bad, not bad at all. I also made, but just one avast! icon for ObjectDock... take a look in here:

Thanks SpeedyPC ! I lik ewhen people appreciate my work, but I still think, Martin Novak is first, one'n'only, and true avast! skin designer... I'm just nobody, a guy from Toronto, who like to draw... that's all...

Btw, I'm not sure Alwil guys'll use this skin and upload it on the server  ??? It looks like they don't like it enough...  :( Probably, if you guys send enough requests to Alwil Software, then they could use that skin... otherwise, I'm not sure we'll see that one in download section soon...

Oh, that was me just joking... she is very very good wife, and she lets me do my thing... sometimes I give her what she needs and we all are happy, so I can go back to my work again and she won't say a word... hehe  ;D  ;D  ;D

Cheers !

Why would it not be in the download section?

Just as I said in my previous post:

I'm not sure am I right 100%, but one thing is for sure, and that's the fact that you can't see Pirate skin in download section yet... Vlk, wrotte me an e-mail and gave me some comments about skin. I always listen to them and I always change that stuff they ask me, but this time I had to disagree with them, 'cause I think they are wrong this time. First issue was that skull on the right is "out of focus", something like... it's doesn't fit good enough in that skin... like it's more Hells&Angels skull than Pirate skull...  ??? If you take a closer look in skull on the left side (inside the display screen), you'll notice that those two skulls are identical... (both has kerchief, both has earrings), so how could it be that the one on the right doesn't fit well ? I don't know...

Second issue was, that I shouldn't put english words inside my skins like those commands: iAvs, Resident Scanner, Folder Selection, etc.
I mean, why ? English is more like international language, and most people understand it very well. Anyway, for those who doesn't understand it quite well, you'll notice that I also put standard avast! symbols right next to those commands...

Bottom line, try to imagine those nice looking wooden-boards (buttons) without those commands and those wonderful Pirate font... quite unimaginable, right ?

I don't know... if they don't want my skins anymore, I'll just throw it away and no one will cry... the end of the story.

Cheers !

Don't sweat it.  You've done a great job with the skins that have been pubished.  Maybe the staff viewed the pirate skin as too "busy."  Perhaps a pirate skin based on the outline of the low-res skin with a single transparent pirate flag as the background or something along those lines.  A simplier tribute to the pirate origination of the word, "Avast!"

One idea is to take that great avatar you made up with "Culpeper" on it and replace it with "Avast!"

Once again, you have done a great job with the skins.  It takes a lot of hard work to get one going.
