welcome Arthurwill :grouphug:
glad to see you here and with good theme..as from the start it's good basis.
keep on working on theme and many great themers for help and companions.

if I may suggest..as what I have done with the new theme for new phone..first take a tour on the site how it works..second test it on it as simple pictures or use colour as black and white and red etc for areas..and you will know all effects

also you could do animations on some more screen besides the standby for K750 too.

Keep on going Arthur :clap2:

for a first theme, i don't see nothing critically wrong with that, it's a very good effort :good:

now all you need is more practice, join the TMC and improve your theming ability, experience will make you better with guidance and knowledge,
...luckily it's all here for you in mobile9 :lol:

Well i think it is time to work on the highlight! The pic is good, but the highlight is too simple and not really fitting. I am sure that you can do this! Use the blending options for getting nice results (just play with the bevel option).

Ok i am going to be hard, sorry for that you want advice and becoming better.

I don't know how it looks on the phone but the standby pic is not of a high quality. To bright imo, not sharp. Also the head of the guy is cut of, just look onder the title.

The softkeys can do some work too, just try thing with blending options-- bevel and give it a little border.

The highs are looking good, but the quality of the little persons is notv very good.

Everything has to be a bit sharper, but i see you are getting it.

Good work and stay theming, i think you have to compete with the challenge because we are giving there many advice. Let's start with a k700 theme so you will not loose much time.

Apart from previously said, I will add, wrong input 1 colours, overall - it's a nice attempt, with lot of details, which is good.
I agree with Pat - since you don't have k750, it's better to practice with k700... :byebye:

Arthur - when resizing pics, try to keep the aspect ratio, this way they won't become stretched or look weird.
for info on keeping images sharp, and correct contrast, try using good-tutorials.com and search for techniques relating to this.

k750 theming is confusing enough to start on, k700 maybe easier as it has less screens to work with. good attempt nonetheless.

when making the theme, keep on previewing it and see how functional it is. also check out other's themes to get ideas and info on hot to make the best out of the space your working with.

a few refferals for your info:
clean functional themes: spawn, simon, gseth
technical themes: patrick, BBT, TT
good balance: augustborn99, zleepy, jasnasto

take a look at how their themes contrast and different approaches to them. and yes joining the TMC will help a LOT.

finally, i think i've said too much :wallbash:

Well she is meaning the colours of your text and back colours. Yellow/orange and black are not the best choices. Just look at the textcolours of jasnasto imo the best with colouring. If you want to be sure you want it right, than you have to look at gseths. He is most of the time using black and white.
