    Well, I've been theming for a month now, and this is my first serious attempt. I tried to make it as simple as possible, with nice rounded icons and solid colours. What do you guys reckon? Comments and criticisms wanted.

    It's super simple, almost cartoony. I like it! Although I think you could do better on the dock (make your own that's only as wide as the icons). Also try and get a more diverse wallpaper or stick to a gray or neutral color. I'm not too fond of the black border. Also go into Cydia and install 5 columns, dock (both are default in there) and 5 iRows (I don't know the source, search it) and repost the screenshots. Could definitely compete with the other mini themes!

    Hmmm... I liked the dock personally... Do you mean to make it shorter, so it fits the icons?

    looks like something out of a game maybe

    How would I make the palm tree less choppy? I just quickly scribbled it with the brush tool, is there a better way? As for 5 columns and 5 column dock, I already have them installed, just not using them. And I'm personally not happy with the maps icon either.

    now this is a nice theme.

    okay, what's the icon in the far right slot of the dock? i don't like it, nor do i know what it is.

    the little glares on your youtube and gameboy icons look jagged.

    maybe darken the gradient on the safari icon? also, the red and white arrows are super thin, maybe make them a bit thicker?

    calculator icon should look better with a more simple equation.

    the music note on your itunes glyph is really thin.

    keep up the good work.

    The reason why the gradients are so choppy is because I only found the gradient tool today

    . I'm so noob at photoshop. The green icon is the settings icon, its supposed to be a circuit board.
    Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

    ^^You always point out things I'd never notice. Although instead of making the music notes thicker you should make the circle thinner. Personally I like the maps icon.
    ^Wow and you made those icons with that little experience? I think they're good! Definitely needs a new settings icon, maybe a wrench or the traditional gear or the Apple logo or something.
