    Just a sample of a theme i'm working on. Far from finished, just doing the icons at the moment and then everything else.

    Comments please?

    Oo quite like the icons, wallpaper doesn't seem to match though. Are you using a program for viewing your theme? If so, where can I get it?

    I will see how the wallpaper looks when it's all finished. I have an idea for another version of it

    Heres where I got the Theme Previewer from. It actually helps you make the theme, but I just tend to use it for previewing it and code it all manually. Saves me respringing my iPod all the time

    The icons are flat, try adding some drop shadow and any other effects.

    Added shadows to the Weather & Maps icons.

    Thoughts?

    Now there is to much drop shadow.

    Reduce it a little bit. Also, make the canvas you are working on that little bit bigger or move the icon up in the canvas, the bottom gets cut off, now that you have added that effect.

    Also, save you image as a png. The JPEG makes it lose quality when uploading.

    That looks much better.

    Now, It seems that the base shape is a bit 'off' Around the edges its a little blurry. Best thing to do it re-draw the base out.

    Also, you could add some effects on top of the base on some icons such as Safari, you could add a world map image(google free vector map for a good one) With mail, clouds. Just to add something more to it.

    Also, i think you should redo the colours, make them stand out more. They seem a bit bland.

    I would(as others said) get a new wallpaper, something simple.

    Hopefully you do try out this, think you can make a nice theme. Good Luck

    I like them flat. Kinda unusual, simple, but right now, it's nice to see.
