[WIP] The Carmichael - a new skin for XBMC - mcborzu - 2010-11-08 04:35
The Carmichael is designed to presesent your media through a unified interface. Easy of use and a common design thoughtout all views is the goal.
I got inspiration from this image from like a lifehacker article or something and branched out from there. I wanted a skin that a unified feel, unified look thoughout all views. The top fanart half is the "parent" section, and the bottom "child" section is the navigation section...
Skin has all the fun stuff:
2. Custom Home (10)
3. Logos, clearart, cdART
5. One click trailers
Same Look thoughout skin
This is 16x9 fanart, I chopped the bottom 20% to give it that movie widescreen ratio. Really makes the fanart 'pop' at that ratio.

Looks like you've been hiding something. I'm looking forward to it. I'm glad to see that more skinners are supporting games too. Can't wait!

looks nice... I like the that you've used all the screen real estate. My screen is big, and my eyes are bad so the bigger the better
look forward to trying it out.

Very nice, it uses the whole screen but isn't crammed or too busy at the same time.
