After seeing the popularity of transparent themes in the past few months I thought it was time for me to put my own version of the concept together. Hopefully I can do it justice, and provide a high quality Master skin with my own take on it.
The basic concept is a stripped down, very transparent, very fast WB that is perfect for screenshotting and showcasing wallpapers
There will be zero bevels or gradients, all the buttons will be flat and designed to be more like a touch screen interface.
It will have a white text and black text start menu substyle for use with light or dark wallpapers.
Heres a small screeny of what I have after a couple of days, I'll try to expose more as I strip it down.
I hope everyone can get Naked soon
Just gotta find a wall I can include with the skins and I can upload them. Don't remember where I got the one in the screenshots!
Wooow...Outstanding work Web...I love it !
