Lyn The Skin by pitkon Lyn The Skin by pitkon
*** THANKS to all of you guys for your favs, comments, views and downloads... Statistics have gone astray, nothing to do with the real numbers ***

FULL INSTALL PACKAGE, INCLUDING WALLPAPER, ICONS, FONT, BLACKBOX BUILD, PLUGINS and 3DCC CONFIGURATION.
This is a collaboration between me (the themer) and my dear friend Patricia :iconloveloan: (the wallpaper artist) dedicated to the upcoming visit of Lynyrd Skynyrd to Greece. Patricia, besides having the eye and the hand of an artist, is a truly lovable person and a loyal friend with a great sense of humor. Patricia did a special wallpaper for this theme and I thank her for her time and effort (not to mention too many screenshots going back and forth, which almost cost her a day's work and an epidural anesthesia (internal joke)...)
The icons are WREN by by Scott Copeland or apathae :iconapathae: [link] included with his permission (the specific icons are at [link] ).
The included font is freeware Haunted Mouse by Steve Ferrera supercarguy@hotmail.com Don't forget to drop it into your Windows/Fonts folder.
All you have to do is unzip Blackbox Lyn The Skin.zip under C:\Blackbox (rename your Blackbox folder if you already use Blackbox), restart (if you already use Blackbox) and either double click on Blackbox.exe or use a shell switcher like ShellOn (if you haven't used Blackbox before) and enjoy.
With the exception of menu icons, everything else is WYSIWYG, including window decoration buttons, wharf icons (only two drawers included with icons as a template, clone them by ctrl+right clicking on them to create your own drawers and buttons).
Again, this theme is for a resolution of 1920X1080 or higher. For lower resolutions, please note me
Anyone who wishes to try Blackbox for the first time, please e-mail me for instructions.
If you want to learn more about Blackbox, I suggest you read an introduction here [link] and my tutorials:
[link] tutorial part I - the shell
[link] tutorial part II - the plugins
[link] tutorial part III - the styles
They are pretty much outdated by now (I MUST find time to bring them up to date... lol) but they will give you a general idea.
And, of course, feel free to ask if you need more info or instructions :)

Great theme: clean design and absolutly wearable! The white fits always well in any desktop.
Now, following that surprising blue of the eye, maybe you could also do a small variation of the theme were the windows bars could show that pale blu tone just to all be even more eye candy. It's only a small suggestion to improve this very promissing pack. :)

I like your suggestion. Truth is, it's one of the 7 active window color themes I discarded in favor of the one I finally used because it fit better with the toolbar and the menus. But I applaud your way of thinking and your artistic eye :nod:

ya, that's the problem of the colors. Whenever some window/bar leave their active state of a certain theme, this can losses a bit its wow effect. Not this case, but only with just a lot of investment in playing with colors (when we want a lot of them) we could offset this regular difficulty. Besides, and most important we could neever neglect the readability which is often forgotten just because others appreciate too much effect on spectacular design. In this case maybe the simplicity and non stressful design is better. ;)

Thanks, Pazzie! You are another P indeed! :D Statistics have gone astray, not to be taken seriously... Probably a glitch in the system. I remember back in 2005, when DA lost ALL statistics and we had to start counting from scratch...
