    [WIP] AvantGARDE HD (REBOOT!!!)

    OK. I had started this theme about a year ago, and though I had done many icons and such, I lost all of the data when my computer went to crap and was replaced. I kinda stopped.

    Recently though, I ordered an iPod touch 4. Me, getting all giddy, looked at many themes available... I don't really like them. I mean, sometimes the icons are beautiful but the idea is horribly done, sometimes the idea is amazing but poorly executed... I just wanted a theme that was modern, simplistic, clean, etc... Different from any current phone OS. I wanted something basic and clean, white and black does that.

    So I remembered this project, AvantGARDE. I've been looking at the four or so previews I uploaded to the internet, and really am into it again. Plus, I've just started PhotoShop classes again, and would love some side-projects. This will be one.

    I really want to start with "HD" icons this time, as the iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4 have come out since I last worked on this, so I'd need to start over anyway... Perfect timing.

    I, however, do not have any 4th generation hardware in my hand yet, I will be getting it within the week, and hope to jailbreak it and figure out the file-system for 4.X.X+.

    Thanks for waiting! I know it kinda sucks, but I am finally going to be able to do it now. I am excited, and hope it comes out great like the many before me...

    Now, which one below looks better? I'm also thinking of making the darker objects have a slight roughed leather texture. Maybe the same for the white too. But not outrageously there, just barely noticeable. (I have been using a Nikon D90 lately and it's a cool texture, would look good.) I want it to be more than a gradient.

    Hm, it looks nice. Very simple, not so much detail...but I guess it could look nice as a finished product.

    It looks pretty good. I'm not sure about the text effects on the "Touch to Unlock" though.

    I just quickly did that, I don't know what I would have on the final one.

    (edit) I removed the touch to unlock text, and I added a few more dock icons.


    The dock icons probably wont have text but the rest will.

    Yeah, I still would need to make a LOT of the UI elements, too bad the keyboard themes don't work in 3.0.
