Thread: Iris winamp skin in the making!

  1. #1

    Default Iris winamp skin in the making!

    After making a Low Tech skin and an Alpha Conspiracy skin, this one had to be done sometime... and now I'm working on it! I've yet tried a different approach than with the Alpha Conspiracy Player and Low Tech. Tell me what you think about it, and give me some tips and suggestions.

    PS.: I've picked a part of the Awakening album art as a background for the skin, but I'm not sure if I will keep it yet. After all, the :Unknown cover hasn't been used yet either. Which one would you guys like to see?

    Here's an early screenshot:

    Update. I'm suprised I haven't had any comments yet.

    Thanks for the support, as usual . I really appreciate it.

    Another update. The main is already finished, up and running. I'll probably finish this skin a lot sooner than I did Low Tech.

    I like it a LOT!!! I finally have my Winamp up and running after all of the problems I had. I would definitely use this.

    Hope it turns out good. It looks like it will. The Low Tech skin came out very well if I may say so. How long does it usually take to make a winamp skin?

    How long does it usually take to make a winamp skin?
    That depends a lot on the design and the techniques used. The Alpha Conspiracy Player was mostly 2D, so it took me about a month of on and off work. However, Low Tech was mostly done using burn and dodge, and I had to do a lot of glass. The skin took me more than 3 months to complete. I do not work every spare hour I have on it though.

    Also, I received a PM by Reagan (W00T ) in which he said he didn't like everything about the design yet. He said it didn't look as professional as The Alpha Conspiracy Player and Low Tech, and he does have a point. So I will be redesigning the entire skin from the ground up. The buttons will be shaped like the Reconnect CD, but they will be green and in 3D. I'll also try if I can use some elements from the Unknown CD cover and irismusic.com .

    PS.: I'll keep the current design in my library, just in case .

    A second attempt. If you don't like it, this will not be the final design. Just comment on it, and tell me what you like about it and what you don't like about it.

    Also, when commenting, be totally honest and don't hold back. The skin needs to look professional, original and it still has to have a connection with Iris. Since I'm the guy who created it, I don't see every flaw in the design. So it's better if you guys criticise it now, then when it's almost finished.

    Now that looks a lot better than the first design

    I don't see anything wrong with it now (not counting the fact that it's unfinished... :P), but I'll be sure to tell you if I find something

    Well, in fact I did see something wrong with it, and Reagan did too. I've tried again, combining the best parts of the first and second design and going for a more natural look, and I think I did pretty good. This will be the design I'll be going with (even when Reagan doesn't like it ). Tell me what you think, modifications can still be made.

    I definitely like the second one better. I had to kinda flip back and forth between the two because at first, I thought it actually looked WORSE than the first one. But once this one is done I think it will look alot better.....

    its like HUD of an FPS...doesnt make me think Iris, but then again i dont really kno what your basing the design on (iris-related). nevertheless, i think i really like the medieval flare going on in it...as a skin...it'll work...

    ---oh, r those vines and foliage, they look more like some blasphemous vegetation out of some miasmatic underworld...nice.

    Heh, thanks. I've been REALLY busy with school lately, so I haven't had the time to work on it. I have a vacation coming though, so I will be able to work on it then.
