Johanne, the screenshot doesn't make justice to this skin. This is one of the most clean and usable skins I ever used. As for the colors, I like them all. Fantastic work, pixxy.

ooh, I like! Fun looking and usable. A vote for yellow as a possible additional color, but what the heck, they all look good.

Since you've been making it clear from before the contest even kicked off that maybe, if you could find the time, you would do a WB from another in-progress project, I think we're all quite clear that TSF will be submitting only one WB entry.

To be fair, I have to say that I agree with TSF that this skin is more similar to Bionic Dot than Dream. It shares that characteristic white-'bubble'-title-thing with Dream, but little more.

Though it shares a few things with Bionic dot: the thin sides, thick top&bottom, similar lighting styles at the top, and similar texturing on the bottom (also weighing to the left side). So I think it's unfair to TSF to deny any similarities.

HOWEVER, I think that's all they are: similarities. I'd say that a very large proportion of the skins submitted here (or anywhere else) have similarities with some other skins out there. There are only so many shapes, so many lighting effects, so many button styles, that can be done, and no skin will be 100% totally fresh and new in every respect, stylistically speaking.

I don't think that Alexandrie, or any skinner, deserves this big fuss that's been made, and I don't believe that TSF should have allowed himself to be drawn into making such a big fuss about it.

Nice we have another GUI Olympics drama now (NOT!). Very nice for the community also(NOT!). I can imagine some site owners and a well known bunch from another site sharpening their knifes already. TSF, You have done Yourself AND the community no favour by doing this in public instead of mailing Johanne first. But I remember You attacking her on that wmp skin also. Personal issues perhaps ? Don't know...

My considered opinion is that this is NOT a 'rip' or any other comparative term for such.

TSF....all you need do with any WB skin submission of your own is refer to YOUR source of 'inspiration' and any comparisons with another WB skin [including this one] will be irrellevant...

1st - This is a QUALITY skin, no doubt about it. I like it a LOT. I think it's my fav in the competition so far

However, I'm a little worried now with the comments from TSF as the 2nd skin I've been working on seems to bear /some/ passing similarities with /some/ elements of this skin to the same degree as that held up for comparison here, even though I've been working on it for a couple of weeks before seeing this, and having never seen the other skin before!

I had thought my skin was quite novel, but I recognise now that I've been subconciously inspired by lots of various elements from lots of various other sources which I guess is what has happened here too...I think its more a case of synchronicity rather than any hint of a RIP - ideas that were "in the air" due to the nature of the art at this time?

:tongue in cheek somewhat:
Just for the record...if my skin ever gets finished, and if it makes the grade to appear here, I didn't get the idea of a shadow under the title bar from here K?...I actually got it from that community skinning effort I now remember seeing a few months back on the skinning forum -)

I really do like this skin. The colors are so vivid. Outstanding job! One of my favorites.
Maybe a purple or an orange, or perhaps a beige color?
