I am sure that you will be a hit, btw save the preview image as png. Would look better.

I already started with my first 3 themes in M9. Here is a theme for K700 which belongs to my early days of SE theming (which is not published in M9)

Ok well heres my two cents on your designing .. firstly hello and welcome to mobile9 clap.gif

Ok now to comments ... these are not to bad , good ideas and experimental creativity.

But heres some things to bare in mind when your themeing.

1 - Use Png for both areas , and imgs / renders.

2 - try to allmake it so the areas eg : status , softkeys , highlights etc ... are what we call pixel perfect .. this means the area you design must perfectly fit in the text etc .... and not overlap , as overlapping ruins the overall effect of the theme and it's design.
i can see this overlappign on virtually all your themes , which ruins them , so remeber make and measure the areas / softs /highlights / to be perfect in size for the function they are made for.

3 - another thing is when creating a theme , the whoel idea is to immerse the user in the themes style and design ... via imgs , and functionality etc ...

but i can see in your themes the img is quite often over looked , and you seem to concentrate more on the areas themselves.

Eg : in your kangeroo jack theme , you only have one img which has anything to do with kangeroo jack , and the rest is blank , and techy ...

To have made this better , you should have used several imgs of kangeroo jack the movie in your area screens ..eg / navigation / pop ups / inputs / .... however in doing this the imgs still need to be totally easy tosee the text through .

So the trick is to either manipulate the img itself , via an editing application like / photoshop / paintshop pro ..etc ...

in this i eman to reduce the transpearancy of the image , this will allow the text to be easily seen over the top.

Whether this will work or not is dependant upon the image or images in question / light /bright /colourful / dark ..etc. ...

however in most cases simply applying a suitable text colour in the theme creator should fix this .

Anyways there ya go .... hope this helped , and is taken positivly by you as i eman this simply to help you in your themeing development , and not as rudeness.

Sincearly Badboythemer 2006.

Yep, it's not my style too, and that's the only one. The truth they are still the best highlights for me. But anyway I agree that it's not nice. wallbash.gif
