    Guess I'll start this section off with the first post... :p

    I've been making a theme I'm calling 8-Bit. Its basically going to have a bunch of video game references all over it. If I ever get to work more on it I'd like to do it in different colors, but right now its just blue.

    I'm finding the most difficult/time consuming part is just making icons. I make some, they look awful, I remake them, they look awful, I remake them, they look all right. Then I just keep going, and days later go back and re-do them. Had I just gone with a black bar for my first theme I think it would've been easier, but the icons are taking forever...

    Oh and if you can't see, the Market stars are the stars from Mario. :D

    Going slowly now though, senior year of college started up.

    Cool idea. I did expect to see more "jaggedness" or "pixelation" in the theme. You can search the net for "8 bit icons" for some ideas maybe too.

    If the below catch on I see this theme finding fans too. Awesome halloween costume idea there.

    One of the free battery widgets in the market has an 8bit theme choice if you want to check that out also for future reference.

    Yeah, the icons I'm still working on. The GPS icon which I didn't show really encapsulates the pixelated idea.
