Duly noted, Vamps. Wasn't pointing the finger at anyone, just an opinion. If you think I meant you, then maybe you're a little unhappy with your own work? I certainly have no problem with your skins. Most aren't my taste but they are quality. Again, not talking about anyone in particular.
That said, if you check the galleries, you'll see that I do quite a few original skins, making my own graphics. I just happen to specialize in matching blinds. If not me, who? No one else is doing it. Just like those who make docks, rainys, xions, etc. Matching skins by anyone is using the original author's graphics. Everyone you mentioned I have made DXes for. Now would I do that if I thought they were bad skins?
thats fair enough, I just my nose out of joint when people make flippant comments about windowblinds, especially when there is an enormous amount of work that goes into them, I was going to comment on another post recently when someone said something horrible about a recent wb that was uploaded, because that op didnt obviously realize the amount of work that goes into them. but I decided to just 'stay out of it'
we also have alot of new wb skinners here at the moment....i thnk we should be giving them a chance. we all start from zero at somepoint in our life.
and Deea, im actually working on a new skin right now called Hermes moon which is going to be a free skin, to be frank, master skins makes diddly squat money, and in future Im not going to wait 3 months for a cheque worth 26 bucks, then lose 10 bucks for the transfer from yank to aussie dollars.....
I actaully decided last week if I do make another master skin, it wont be for a very very long time, id rather just create and upload for the world to enjoy.
and I live rather well on my disability pension from the government, so im not dependant on master skin sales at all.
