Very true i am personally guilty of this exact thing.
but without community support and people creating concept art and attempting to give it a go we wouldn't inspire anyone.
If everyone sat on the fence and and did nothing we would have one default skin that's it for every 10-30 failed attempts we finally get something amazing, that's a statistic i can live with.
If you also actually look into the people creating concepts and abandoned skins you see that they are abandoned sometimes because that skin was a way for them to learn to code for kodi half way through their coding skills get better and better and they look back on sometimes hundreds of hours and thousands and thousands of lines of code and realize that they could have coded differently and much more efficiently had they known the new techniques that they can only learn from hundreds of hours of coding which combined with the constant nagging from all the fence sitters in the wip forums which is only actually for direct contributors and actual skin developers and not the general public ultimately we get and unfinished abandoned skin because of the crossroad that the skinner faces do they re code the skin from scratch and risk the abuse from everyone because ETA is now set back another year.
or pump out a badly coded mess usually they get inspired by concept art like this from real contributors and decide to back a new project which ultimately leads to a much higher chance of the new skin reaching the light of day because of the support and the new passion for the project.
That's why if you are a fence sitter hanging out in this developer forum you should support any concept art new project that appears if not go back to the place you probably came from some illegal kodi addon nonsense website and leave real contributors to be inspired. ( Swageroni i'm not personally talking to you just quoting a general attitude I see around here)
The skin looks great by the way.
Thank you looking forward to seeing this get some momentum.
