    Avalon
    WIP Theme by Importune

    Hey guys, I'm still quite new here. I started working on a light theme last night, and this is what has happened so far. I really love the winter and I love the open feel the light themes can give...so this could be my first theme. I'd name my first daughter Avalon if my woman would let me, but I doubt it, so I'll have to settle with my first theme.

    Here are a couple basic previews, a couple things to note:
    • The large battery circle only appears while the device is charging.
    • The Time/Date is changable to include the weather.
    • When pressed the "Unlock" and "Silence" buttons turn android green.
    • I included a gmail widget in a couple of the previews here.
    • These previews are scaled down. This is 60% of normal Droid resolution.


    Bare Preview

    Winter Preview

    Notification/Contacts/2 More Widgets Preview
    [​IMG]


    Phone Dialer & Settings Preview
    [​IMG]


    Music + Other Widgets Preview

    So only the final question remains... Would anyone use it? Please vote if you've got a second.

    Disclaimer: I have been using icons found inside my phone's current ROM (mostly the default android icons, but I'm sure a few someone made for my current rom or theme). I'm honestly not sure who made them, but all credit for the icons belongs to them. I am sorry I don't know who you are, but whoever you are, please don't be angry with me.
    Also, I'm using this weather icon set: tick weather icons by ~xiao4 on deviantART

    I'm digging the lockscreen music controls, will they rotate in landscape? thats my biggest gripe with all lock screen music controls. I think if your going to go with a nice white overlay you might not want a white background. its very hard on the eyes, and battery life may suffer from all the white pixels

    WOW! I *really* like the imagery you've used. This is going to be a kick-ass theme. I hope you're going to port it to multiple roms. :)

    Alrighty guys, sounds good then, I'll keep working on it.


    To people that know how to code these types of themes- can you send me a PM if you're willing to help or answer a few questions for me? There are some things I haven't figured out yet, and I'd be more than happy to hand it off to a coder if someone wants it.

    Hey guys, I'm designing widgets right now. Any requests for specific widgets to be designed to match? I'll do whichever you ask right now, while I've got it all open. :p Let me know, thanks!


    EDIT: Or, if anyone knows what widgets are most commonly used? Not sure what I should be themeing, really new to the android side of design. :p

    I'm not a huge fan of pandora so I use last.fm, a themed widget for them would be really sweet. Can't wait for this theme to drop. Nice work!
