Fellow skinners and WinCustomizers!

I am happy to present to you the

 first edition of RedneckDude's

Skinner Spotlight!

And for my first victim, I give you theAVMAN!

 

Let me start by saying that I have been a cohort of Harley's for several years. Harley and I, as well as a host of other skinners have collaborated on several Community projects, as well as just working on small projects together.

 

It seems that theAVMAN has recently passed the one million downloads mark, and it's no wonder!  With skins like Robotic Defiance for CursorFX, and the more recent cursor called Robotic Retriever, you should really check these skins out, if you haven't already!  He is also working on a WindowBlind called Robotic Defiance to hit the gallery soon!

TheAVMAN, Harley, has always been very helpful to other skinners when called upon, he is a very nice guy to boot! (So boot him as often as possible...lol!!) Below are a few screenshots of some of Harley's work, each is a link to the skin itself.

 

 Timeless        Robotic Defiance Retriever    

 Venom        Excalibur        

 The Captain's Gadget        Tracer

 

These are just a few of Harley's best skins. I'm sure his best is yet to come. He has been here at WC since 2006 and has really become a top class skinner! He is currently #36 in the top 50 skinners all time list!  WTG Dude!

Please drop by theAVMAN's gallery and check out all his great work via the external link above. One thing you'll quickly see is that Harley definitely thinks outside the box!

 

If you have a particular skinner in mind for a spotlight, want me to try this again next month, I am open to suggestions. I'm just a common redneck, not so great with words, but I know good skinnin' and good people. Harley fits both categories, in this redneck's opinion.

I'm always interested in the stories behind skinning, so please carry on. (By the way, I have a thread in the forums at skinnalicious.net called "Skinning Stories" that has some autobiographies by people like the number one skinner of all time, adni18, some biographies and stories and statistics. Check it out here if you're interested).  http://www.skinnalicious.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?start=0&topic_id=11&viewmode=flat&order=ASC&type=&mode=0

Who is Harley? I remember the guy with pages and pages of great graphics. Good idea Jim and nice pick with Harley to start things off.

The above statement is open for debate.

 A great article about an equally great skinner. Good job, RND and congrats to Harley on his milestone.

Whoa Jim I am kinda speechless man!

It really doesn't seem like it has been 4 yrs or 1,000,000 downloads ago but I guess time really does fly when your having fun.

To Jim and everyone who has written in thank you from my heart it truly means more than I can say!

What a great community!!!!

I need a writer.... 

Great idea? Well, it's not like it's an original idea that hasn't been done before...lol...but I'm glad you guys approve!

But what is cool, besides Harley, that is, is another skinning site we all know wants to interview me for July!!

Now what on earth could a redneck have to say that yall want to hear?    

 

Thanks guys, for the kudos, Harley did the work, I just pointed.

I need a writer....

I wouldn't have the confidence for taking something like that on.... [just sayin, and sometimes my french comes out]

but you really did a heartfelt, insightful profile. You know these folks personally...

And just like karma to return a good thing!

Congrats on your interview.

I am looking forward to this interview.  It'll be nice to hear your perspective on things...etc.

Well, let's put it this way, most of my bulk is more...."centered"...

Congrats on the feature Harley! You deserve the spotlight! You are an excellent example of what every skinner should strive to be...creative, talented, and helpful.

Nice job of the feature Jim!
