    Hey everybody,
    This is my second post (I think?) here and I'd appreciate any help/criticism.

    Anyway, I'm trying my hand at a Watchen (Based off of the Graphic Novel/Movie) theme. If I can work all the tweaks out of this, I could somehow share it with everybody.

    Here's what I've got so far:

    I would like to change all the remaining white images to black ones, but I can't find their sources (I SSH into Winterboard) Could anybody give me some pointers?

    Thanks.

    Sorry, I don't know where it is, but I'd just like to say that it looks awesome!

    Thank you Meikura.
    I just watched the movie and have read the Graphic Novel, and i'd like to be able to do it as much justice as possible (I am quite the perfectionist).

    Looks good. There aren't that many Watchmen themes out there, but this is probably the best I've seen.

    I always thought it would be cool if someone made a theme where the Springboard looked like a page taken out of a comic book or graphic novel, so the icons appeared as panels of the book. Probably not very feasible.

    Anyway, keep up the good work. The badges look great too.

    That actually seems quite plausible, provided there would be a way to get only 3 icons per row.

    The only downside to this theme so far, is that depending on the location of the icon, it has to be manually edited if it is to be seen properly (Ex. the BossPrefs icon) I've included the template I used for the icons as a psd file, so that anybody who did eventually download it could do it themselves.

    so do the apps have to be in certain places or does it automatically make yellow black and vice versa?

    It looks like a pretty static theme. If you release the .psd, that'd be awesome!

    Yeah. If you moved them around, it'd look out of place.

    This looks cool, I haven't actually gone out to see the movie yet, and therefore my suggestions might be wrong. First of all I do like what you have, although instead of using only yellow and black colors for font, you should inverse the red so that it's blue in front of the red. Second of all, I suggest you make this a Categories theme, and each Category is themed around one character from the movie (sorry I don't know who or how many there are, I really need to go see it) or you could make each page (using a very large icon in the top left corner) for each character.
