Could anyone do with a digital-artist? - MikeBeecham - 2007-06-06 15:15
Hi there guys,
I've been so blown away with XBMC since I got it, I really feel that I would now like to give something back. I cant code or do anything technical on the XBMC side, but I do know how to design.
If anyone could use another pair of Photoshop hands then please let me know as I would be more than happy to help out where needed. I have over 7 years photoshop experience, and have run my own Graphic Design business.
Some of my digital artwork can be found at http://mikebeecham.deviantart.com
No worries if no-one needs anything, but I wanted to make the offer!

I just thought that I would spend an hour or so creating a fairly decent mock-up, based on Acer's new media centre...not sure what you guys think?

maybe you want to join Team XBMC and create graphics for us when the need arises ?
any good with animations ?
- MikeBeecham - 2007-06-06 22:56
Never done animations to be honest..having only really created 2d Work (again, http://mikebeecham.deviantart.com)...
If the offer to join team XBMC is open then I would more then welcome a conversation at some stage.

Im loving the mock-up, looks nice and simple

mikebeecham - you should try and make this into a skin...
If I wasn't busy doing my x-cite skin I wud love to give you a hand

That looks great.
I thought you were looking for someone to work on the icons and such with you... Maybe I'm thinking of someone else?

Nice work there mike, certainly hope to see some of it in up coming skins. I might even lend my hand to it some day when I get more time, loving XBMC as well!!!!

If you want a hand to create the mockup you have there I would be keen to help out, been meaning to learn skinning for the XBMC previously done skinning for Winamp and was even invited to Redmond to help with skns for MediaPlayer for WinXP back in the day.

hey mike, nice artwork on your page.
i don't have much time to finish anything, my Verve skin suffered from that.
But I do get time from time to time, and I can code screens pretty quick.
But I should only try to help on a 1 screen at a time basis.
All that said, if you have a link to acers media player, and you create the graphic elements, and show me a mock-up of the screen you want, I can re-create just about anything. My Verve skin was started by a request from someone to emulate another media center, and I made the video menu in about 30 minutes and used a bug in the graphic engine to create reflections (it was the first skin to have reflections), so if you really want to recreate the acer media center I'll help when I can. I have no artistic talent what so ever, but I can emulate and figure anything out given enough time.
