Here's an early peek at two other themes (Leather & Glass) that I will be including with the skin. Note that these previews are only a test of the backgrounds so far. I have not changed the coloring of any text or media flags yet. Although, I gotta say that the default colorings aren't too far off & actually look pretty good.

Thank you, that is very encouraging. I am working on it rather slowly at the moment but none the less still plodding along.

Looks wonderful. Some questions/feedback:

1) Are the transparent movie cases part of the skin or the cover images? If the skin add them, will there be an option to turn them off?
2) How does the clock look for us that use 24h time?
3) Love the new comics poster, thanks for adding that Smile

1) Part of the skin but only in the Poster & Low List views. If I were to add an option to disable them, what would you want in their place? My preference would be the black classic frame that I am using in all the other views.

2) To be honest, I hadn't tested that yet so thanks for asking. Below is a screenshot & as you can see, it leaves a blank spot where the AM/PM usually is. Not sure what to do about that at the moment.

3) You're welcome & no big deal. Big Grin

Thanks Hitcher, that means a lot. I started with Revisited but I am trying my best to change as much as possible to give it a look all its' own.

PS: Looking forward to seeing more of Xeebo. Nod

Those black frames look great, no need to introduce another one

Thanks & I jokingly call that my "Artsy Fartsy" view. It works pretty well for most fanarts but occasionally will cut one up in the wrong spot if the focal point of the art is not in the center. I will be adding another, more traditional, landscape/fanart view for those that want it.
