Second one is very cool. I like the icons for specific function.

Darren, I already said that the second is pretty good.
I sent my suggestions by IM  ;D

Darren, you already sent all those skins in one thread in another forum... see here:
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=4985;start=0

No need to post them twice, we'll just flood the server this way... As I said before, skins are great, but you have to work on original graphic pieces in your skins. First skin you made (not the one on this page, but the one in the link I posted up there... skin is somewhere at the bottom of that page) was exact copy of my skin "Flat'n'Simple". I don't have anything agains you to take a look inside skins and learn as much as you want, but make skins of different shape at least... Another example: last skin you made, contains some icons I have downloaded from devianART... I think you are more than capable to make something that is 100% yours, so do that.

Anyway, are there any news from Vlk yet ? You said you sent all those skins to Vlk...

I'm not trying to flood the server. It was suggested for me to start a new "suggestion" topic in the "General Forum", so I did.
Oh, and that clone of your "Flat'n'Simple" skin has been destroyed. It was only a learning process for me (thanks, and I will delete the image from the server). As for the icons, well yes, they are out there for download. I liked them, so I used them. The skins were initially for my personal use, but I figured "what the hell"...I'll share.
Anyway, the next skin (if there is a next), will be made from graphics totally designed by me. ;D

PS...Vlk sent me a couple of things that needed changing. I already sent the new version back to him.

Maybe Sasha,but i really like the icons. If he ads the note that icons are from that page or even asks the author then its fine :)

Yeah RejZoR, just like I had to put some copyright notes on my LCARS skin and Matrix skin (remember ?)

Shgoh, Technical and Darren... I didn't say he shouldn't post in here. I like his work, and I want everybody to post here. We all are great friends, right ? I just said, it's not maybe the best idea to post so big pictures twice, practicaly in the same forum... that's all.

He could start this thread something like this:

"Here's my first one... and my second one... See this thread for pictures:

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=4985;start=15

Any suggestions for improvement?
Any feedback welcomed!"


That way he would do exactly the same job but by not reposting same pictures twice...  ;)

Cheers !
