    I have got it down now. Sad news is...Chrome rendering is not that easy for me. Compared to previous themes...this is much much more time consuming. I am spending a LOT of time on each image. More than I am used to.

    Tackling the main things (dialer buttons in particular) is taking a long time to do given my time constraints with work and buying a home. I had a setback that made me want to pull my hair out today...I got to number 4 on the dialpad and had realized that number 1 button doesnt have any letters on it...it starts with 2...so my completed buttons have to be scraped and start over.

    Im pleased with outcome of the look though. Here is a preview. Note this image has an alpha channel and will not show unless you have a image program...its transparent smoke background with chrome outline and chrome letters. I will fix, but thought I would share the image I messed up on just to give an idea of what Ive been whipping up in my lab.

    Yakitori most images will show up like that around the edge if it's not a hand drawn image. Especially with chrome. Besides that it's looking good! Keep up the good work :)

    I dont think they will show up on the phone. My intent was to actually have a little bit of edge in there to give it a more "real" look rather than an extremely clean appearance. like this.


    Here is one I did from scratch. This was freehand. Absolutely nothing but a blank slate.

    Its ok....but I like the blingy chrome above for this theme.

    whatchall think about this?

    I like the first one and if you can put a dark edge number or letter, that would look cool. Real nice work, I'm sure whatever you choose it's going to look awesome. Port for SS5.0 Gingerbread. It should be ready tomorrow..... :)

    here is what the ones in the first post will look like over the black background of the dialer.

    of course I had to do some touching up.

    What do yall think?


    Let me know...because I am going to work on it this weekend as much as I can...I should be able to get a lot done. I think Ive figured out chroming now. It IS however a lot of time to devote to 496...I may create this theme for GB...cause I dont want all my hard work forgotten...lol.

    either way, porting would not be an issue.
