My first attempt (Neon) didnt get top scores :D

didnt expect it to, but I am still trying to figure out how to
make nice icons.

I have submited my new attempt under full skins. ( Just for fun )
Its not finished, but i would like to hear your marks for
the effort so fare.

I like the shade of blue you picked and the icons show a sense of humor. I enjoyed it alot. Making the icons is what did me in. We've had a few artists over the years. Getskinned has got it's search function working and I found some really old ones by Seven-Steps-To Heaven that I doubt are on our site yet as they are missing a lot of addition. Take a look--I never did figure out how he did it--I figured he had better graphics programs than I did. http://www.getskinned.org/modules.php?m ... n=showsubs

I'm hoping he'll come by again someday, or perhaps someone else could give updating his skins a try.

These are up. DO a search under Keyword instead of Author.
