    [Preview] iPond

    Hi everybody,

    this is my first post and my first theme that i'm working on.

    Its pretty basic and not the most creative idea really....its more like a learning project for me anyway, but i wanted to hear some opinions...

    I looked around these forums for some similar theme and haven't found anything, but if i overlooked something i apologize. I dont mean to steal somebody else's idea.

    The background was done after a tutorial DVD called "Photoshop Top Secret"...so props to them for the design and the idea.

    Enough talking...here it is, hope you like it

    Edit: Version 0.1

    I changed a few things:

    • Added a wifi-icon (1-3 bubbles represent the signal strength)
    • Added a custom carrier icon (german humour alert!)
    • Added a transparent status bar
    • Added some "pizas" to the dock

    ToDo-List:
    • I want to fool around a bit more with the icons. Someone suggested that they should look distorted because they are inside a bubble....i tried a few things with PS but nothing looked right...the icons are so damn small lol
    • I would like to make the header battery and the battery look like a oxygene bottle, but i'm not sure if that'll work. If somenody knows a tutorial about header battery icons that would be much appreciated

    simple, but it looks really quite nice. The badge should be a bubble too, that would be cool

    hah i had this same idea a few months ago, never really did much with it though

    i like the bubble icons, but it might look better to have symbols (like the badge theme) inside instead of icons

    or maybe to have the icons (the ones in the bubble) enlarged in the middle so it looks like they're all distorted from being in the bubble, if you get my meaning


    also you might wanna do up the contrast a little bit on the whole thing, looks kinda grey

    unless you meant it to look like that


    let's see what else

    you should get rid of the status bar, or make a new one or something

    edit: yes! forgot about the dock

    so yeah you should do something different with the dock or just the dock icons, like iderno have fish or sea creatures or shells or something so they look like they're on the sea floor

    i had this excellent version of the leopard theme's dock that looked like it was covered in sand and like it was an iVersion of a sea floor

    but yours already has a built in thing like that

    edit again: added a tiny bit of color 'cos my post was long and boring

    Nice! Good job. The only thing i think you should do different is add some pizas to the dock icons. Nice job with the wallpaper!

    I have no idea what "pizas" are tho? I guess we're not talking about italian food here, right
