Amazing work Jeroen. Great designing skills. Exactly what I have been waiting for, a tasteful and clean skin. Great to see you back on the scene.

So, I decided to work on a banner based tvshow view today. I'm not sure if it will be part of the first release, but I pretty much decided there will be one eventually.
Note that this is just a first try, this could very well end up differently in the end. The empty spaces at the sides are a bit too large I feel, but that's partly a consequence of the image dimensions. I feel a vertical layout suits the image type better though. Ah well, I'll tinker with it

as for the space, if you move it on the left/right you could use the extra space to show information, like descriptionof the series or last added episode(id on't know if its possible)

I tried something like that earlier but I felt it looked cramped then unless I made the banner a lot smaller. Maybe I'll make the banner just a bit larger, although it's already a bit bigger than the originals that are pulled from thetvdb.

This is interesting. But there are a lot of skins / views that already show all the information one might want to see.
Me I like to have as few as possible. I've edited quite a few views in some skins to remove the plot summary for instance (I really don't care - I've added this to my HTPC so I KNOW what's it about!)
But hey, it's your skin mate Looking incredible so far. I'm already in love with it

Really looking forward to this one.
No chance of a beta or svn before the XBMC release? It could be ages away!

This looks so awesome it almost hurts.

Maybe, we'll see. The XBMC milestone is due in 3 hours so there's still hope
At the moment I still have some touching up to do though. Currently I'm trying to finish the weather screen, which is the most boring screen to skin imo
Just yesterday I found a showstopper bug that only reared it's head on a clean XBMC install. It was an easy fix, but I was glad it wasn't out though
In any case, a release isn't far away. I wouldn't have announced it if there were still tons of things to finish.

This looks great! So many great looking skins coming out and being developed at once: Night, reFocus, and Welo's skin.
I can't wait to try this one out. Glad to hear its not far from being released.

Preliminary weather screen.

Jeroen... how about the infamous 10 feet distance? I've seen your screenies and while i find them stunning i was just tinking if i could read the information from my couch...
Are you also planning to ship some optionals bigger fonts?
