Here's the first draft of a concept design I started on today.
Mind you, this is an early draft which could change drastically as I go along!
The skin name is Sol III because that is one of the names for Earth in the ST universe and also because there are 3 styles.
Added stripes. Cuz I like stripes!
And the evolution continues. Gone, are the black stripes on the top and bottom. Simplified the black area slightly then added the colored stripe down the middle. I think less IS more here......details need to enhance the skin, not muddy the look.
Shown here with the taskbar. Buttons shown: Normal, Mouse, and Selected/Active State. Finally a comm-badge as a start button.
