Just a bit more of progress. We have busy days home now. I have considered very carefully what you folks said on the prior thread. I have changed a colour and lightning a bit and removed the tubes in the corners away. I really wanned do something more complicated. But when using it I realize that less is better. One thing is to boost my art spirit the other hand is to have it user friendly. However I am still not insisting I am not changing anythingy. Still playing with it. 

 

Thanks for stopping by and for comments too.

The branches or wires or whatever they are on the bottom right. IMO...it would look better without them. But its your skin dude. Have at it.

Hey......its just my opinion. Tom didn't have to change it if he didn't want to, it is his WB after all. He can do a substyle like DPCloud suggested with the sqigglies. Or not. What you say Tom. One with sqigglies and a sub without. Either way.....................I want it!

Evening guys, I am still here. Still listening up to what you are saying. Uvah is right. He did not even force me to change it. I will see if I can do with two substyles. I guess that would really do well. Perhaps it would be convenient to explaing why I have decided to get rid of them first. Originally I wanned to create some hydraulic stuff in the startmenu. The wires or whatever you call them should serve as a part of the mechanism. Then I changed my mind as it seemed too much to me. I can picture you may have a feel this is a bit plain now. I can assure you that is not true. I just made it a bit more consistent upon Uvah´s point. Or that is how it sounds to me. Till Uvah told I had a serious struggle with this skin. I was concentrating on the startmenu so much that I completely forgot about considering the overall. I had a startmenu but I did not know what to do. How the rest of skin could be. When Uvah said to get rid of those, it was just a BANG to my head, rather mind. Then I figured startbutton, taskbarbuttons and some minor stuff in 10 minutes. I was lingering at one point for about a week without a move and now I am skinning like being mad. Please do not pay all the attention to the startmenu. It is an important but not always the driving portion of a skin. On the other hand you can think of what you see and I did not give you too much. But I wanned have you with me. My experience is that if I have you watching my progress there is always a huge benefit for me. Please wait for the other stage of progress and we can re-talk your perspectives.

I see a substyle is really required here. Fortunately I backed up the startmenu with wires.
