Artist's Note

Ok I can't wait anymore. I was going to submit this when the winamp was done but i can't wait. The title fits this visual style perfectly. Simple in yet stylish. It includes 6 different colors, and with FrostedFlames massive winamp color pack I'm sure you can find one to match.Temporarily of course, The winamp to match should be done soon. Enjoy! ;) Comments and criticism greatly appreasheated.

Hands off! She's mine.
I've got the ring and everything.

A smooth, very usable style - minimalism without being boring.

Grumble grumble ... I was working on a style almost exactly the same for a suite I was working on :( Oh well no need to do the style xp now... this is too good . Thumbs up.

senex says:

you should've made the bevel shadow lighter than that because the bottom looks like it's 2 pixels thick.

the worm says:

nice...only thing that stops me from using this is the color right above the taskbar like you did also with the serinity vs. also if i would use it i'd pick the black..then again the bleu and black dont mix in my opinion.

Wed, Jan 21st at 08:42am (13 years ago)

Good, but let me cover what I don't like: harder to install without a .theme and shellstyle. The off-centered system icon in the taskbar is a little off. The taskbar, titlebar and start menu are way too low-profile for me, and hard to read (regardless of the font). I don't like the excessive white (Why not use a lighter shade of the color - I know it's harder, but it would look better). The icons in the start menu are squished unless they're small, which is OK for some but not for me. You've done well and you certainly have your niche in the style world.

Rock, i love this

Wed, Jan 21st at 01:12pm (13 years ago)

must agree with senex, good job otherwise

I don't know about this looks alot like alot of other styles including mine, otherwise it was a good idea, too much white though and seems like it was rushed.

Damn Good!

Girlfriend, this is by far one of the sexiest subs i've seen on this page. Absolutedly red hot, it's anything but simple, it's like a color orgy of some sort, love the lime, my fav!

LALA! OH MY!! Why didn't you release this earlier, so I can ask your permission to transport the look over to the website project I am still struggling to manage. Too late. We have already pay those low tier web developer off already. My favorite of this is that it has 2 count'em 2 (possible) tan/brown color themes. THINGS TO IMPROVE: If you can make the color theme with the orange/bright yellow start panel into an all -brown one, also getting rid of the use of the hooge all-cap font (it's becoming annoying to the eyes now), make use of highlight color for task bar minimized items and startpanel "pinup" items, then it's a prefect 100.

winswy says:

why is everything so bloody small?

i have perfect eyesight and i cant read hardly anytihing anywhere.

also like the last style the icons on the compacted side look squished.

i thought i was gonna like it more.

Mon, Jan 26th at 12:07am (13 years ago)

I like this one - but there are a few things taht could have been changed, like the status bar, and the start menu, and a few other small things, but other than that great job!

Mon, Apr 26th at 08:53pm (13 years ago)

you know i love this, told you at devart, but this is just awesome!

Even know this came out quite a few months ago, this is my favorite VS by Heylove. I did a desktop themed around it. I even made two small skins to match the VS. I've been using the same desktop with out changing any thing for almost a month now. That's a record for me, 10 more days and it's a 31 day month.

baaaam! of course the variations in color make this very versatile. very simple as well, which once again m,akes this very usable. all round good approach and stylish finish.
