Welcome to DC 32

Themes


Topic: Tarot Card Themes

Description:

Make a theme for any mobile phone of your choice using one of the 22 Major cards from a "standard" tarot deck.
The 22 major cards are known by different names but here is a list of the more commenly used names:
The Magician, The High Priestess, The Empress, The Emperor, The Hierophant (aka The Pope/ High Priest),
The Lovers, The Chariot, Strength, The Hermit, Wheel of Fortune,
Justice, The Hanged Man, Death, Temperance, The Devil, The Tower,
The Star, The Moon, The Sun, Judgement, The World, and The Fool.
You can also use one of the 56 minor cards but it might be more difficult to find good wallpapers for them. Here is a list of them: Link

Try to use an actual tarot card as your wallpaper - they often have the name of the card on them, but you can crop out the name and use only the image.
Most tarot decks these days are made in a fantasy style but there are lots of other types available:
anime cards, rock-n-roll cards, dragon cards, gothic cards, animal cards even Simpsons cards ...
so have a good look around the web before you decide on a wallpaper.


This topic will be open for 2 weeks until Sunday 13 November at 18:00 GMT.

Very nice M - the subtle animation looks wonderful clap.gif


I thought I'd share my favorite set of Tarot cards with you all ... they are called the Deviant Moon Tarot
here's an example of 4 cards: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_wm7d2S8L2-c/TL3F...iantMoon024.jpg
because tarot cards are so long and narrow this set wont work well for most themes - I'm just sharing because I love them wink.gif

I hope everyone like it and ofcourse i will wait for ur feedbacks on it wink.gif

@eric thanks

@Mom , great card chosen . clap.gif

@ Magi , fantastic start , waiting for the rest . wow.gif

@ Sk , Superb choice of card . clapping.gif



@Emad , yes u r right bro theming is really not a joke , Sometimes I have 2 install my themes near about 15-16 times just for checking the elements & it takes 4-5 days ( even more ) to complete a theme . U really did a great job . 10.gif if u want to change the icons darker or less colorful like Eric said use Adobe illustrator ( May b u know that) . A little suggestion from me if u don't mind ,

1. make the active background a little darker

2. If u want TPI uid let me know , as I can see some icons aren't changed ( maps , location )

3. I guess we would really like to see the default album instead of a movie album . tongue.gif

4. Try to use other elements as Most of the elements r from tehkblack theme templet ( but itz not a crime )

(That's all I can say from 5 previews) .

Kindly do not mind , itz only my opinion , the main thing is ur way to represent ur theme . waiting for the rest of ur preview. thumbsup.gif



@Aleena , hey sis , u can search on Deviantart . smile.gif

Thank you soooo much Soumy, the basic theme is as u said is from "tehkblack theme templet" but i changed the Clock, Buttons and Icons and some other details which is exhausting & takes long time just to pack & install on mobile to preview and change again wallbash.gif i will make the Active BG darker as u suggest. i dont have a nice default album for my player can u suggest me any angel_not.gif ... one last question... WHAT IS TPI & HOW CAN I CHANGE "Maps & Locations" and other Third party apps icons...?!?
Eric to make the icons darker i need Adobe Illustrator (edit SVG files) and just thinking about installing it will make my PC crash tongue.gif i will try to find anther set of darker icons tongue.gif
Magic thanks... and as u saw Soumy was not easy on me tongue.gif laugh.gif... THANK YOU ALL wub.gif

anuragsins1991
can anyone suggest any way to make themes without carbide for nokia
soumyadeepbshn
@Gem , thank a lot dear Gem . about ur theme - fantastic start , love the barwork .

@ Anurag , which version of Nokia theme u wanna make ? if it is s60v5 , u can make it with online theme maker without carbide ( but as far I know the onl9 theme making sites use only png elements & icons which is not so good for s60v5 theming . )

@ Emad , glad u find my opinion helpful bro . here is ur answers of ur questions .

1. default album : u can use any music icon from ur theme icon pack or any svg music element picture as ur default music .

2. TPI = Third party icon , carbide do not have all the default icons like phone switch , accessory setup , maps etc. u have 2 add them manually . give me some time I'll PM the uid s & process to u .

3. if AI ( adobe illustrator ) is crashing in ur PC , u can colorize the icon with carbide default color changer if u want .

Ok I'm running late (again) this morning - will help tonight.
What size wallpaper are you looking for? Any specific card you want to use Magician, Empress, Death etc....?

Some nice girly cards would be the Oracle of Shadows & Light cards. It's not the traditional tarot but it's still classified as tarot cards so I'll accept them.
You can see some examples in this blog (entry for 27 Nov.)
