Hey guys,

Thanks for all the suggestions and feedback. I've been busy so haven't had the time but will eventually continue to experiment, revise, and present ideas for the remaining screens. I think it's important to have many variations to choose from before refining and moving on to the development (if it happens, anyway).

In the meantime, here's a quick variation of the wall view:

The text looks pretty crisp at 1080px, but I will still increase the font size on all pages.

Dang never saw this skin until now!

I'm amazed by the ideas you have...

I haven't really seen any skin out there with ideas that haven't been done before, they are all pretty much designed around each other... but yours... you have some extremely creative 'outside the box' ideas for layouts, I'm shocked... I hope your here to stay in the XBMC Community, would love to see future ideas from you!

again, good work... im amazed how much the skin flows with only gradiants/fades

Yeah, I doubt that text would do much good on my plasma.Eek
Stunning design though. Nod

Have to say that, too! Stunning Visual experience... hope you can get together with djh for a maximum of performance!

Just great!

BTW: Text right next to the cover is not that nice... do not really like that one.

Beautiful concept. If this actually came to fruition it definitely has the ability to be in a fight for my favorite skins.
Stunning!

I wish I knew how to code. I was looking today, but unfortunately I don't have the time to learn a coding language right now. This could become an amazing skin. I also have a concept out there for a skin. I seems that there may be more graphic guys than coders in the community or maybe all the coders are busy working on projects of their own. Good luck on getting this made in to a working skin.
