This being a very fresh startmenu look of my first master skin. On Woodoku I was happy to play

with wooden stuff. Now I am trying to play a bit with metallic one. I understand this is not too much

for you to get any concrete picture, but I would like to share my first steps with you to 

see what you think about it. Not sure how much time it takes to finish as we are still awaiting a new born

(Due date is today or tomorrow they say). So definitely I do not know, once Mathew is born, what will be

the best way to combine taking care of him and family with skinning. But let´s see. When releasing Technix

I told I would not be doing another one and then I created 3 other skins. 

 

Comment, critisize, whatever... I am always happy to see your thoughts.

 

Yours

Tom

Shades of I.R. Brainiac! A variation on a theme!  That's what it reminds me of. Now if I could only remember the name of the skin....I'm so bad.

Waiting to see more!

It's OK I guess. I'm thinking you for forget about it and just send it to me because I dreamed I made that psd a couple night ago and loved it.

Like me.

 

It´s gonna be sorta challenge to me. I wanna do a couple of animated stuff on it too, but I´d better speak to Andy aka Neone6 as he is a real deal about SMENU and Sbutton animations. 

 

I would be glad for any helping hand on this and will try to keep you updated.

You had to look inside my head as you 100% defined what I was thinking of. I will try to play more with user pic and the area around. I have a thought I might do a kind of clips that keeping the user pic.

Just kidding around. Love this WB. I'm working on something now. No need to make anything up for me.

One thing... might not be possible, but perhaps a substyle where disabling the user picture won't leave the top pipes open and just hanging in space...

Also... perhaps "connector plates" for where the tubes connect to the frames.... ? Might look better? Possibly not?

 

 

Haven't made the "connector Plates" yet... will if you're interested.

Seth, please mark that place as I am not being 100% sure I get it. All connector plates or some in particular? 

As for the user pic, I will go without it. I felt like the pic was a sorta jarring but thought a lot of folks around just loved

having a user pic, that is why I put it in. Thanks Seth, if anything else, just let me know

Quoting neone6,
Teknofresh.

Thanks Andy. I will need to speak to you concerning the start button. Once having a sketch about that I will send you an email with details. Perhaps you just might get thru it by telling me if you like it or not or if some animation would be meaningful. Will let you know soon. Hope you do not mind, mate.

Steve always makes nice Winsteps. As for me.....I'm edging closer to DX. Want to see if I can make it do stuff. Then maybe I'll get brave enough to tackle SKS.
