Murex has graciously volenteered to make a DX theme for this blind. Whle he was playing around with ideas, he made a couple things for his DX that I just have to use in my blind. I know I said I was going to use only my work, but once I saw what he made....I just couldn't resist.
He made a sword, an axe and some shields, and sent them to me. I tweaked the sword and shield (the axe was perfect) a bit to match the blind a bit better and put them in. I have them in the loading screen, the control panel branding, and the start button. (I'm using them in the wallpaper too, but I'm not showing that off just yet)
2of3 suggested that my next shot of the blind should be on a lighter background to show off some of the detail. So...here is what I got so far. Vista is pretty much done.
