Just want to get some opinions....

This is my first crack at theming anything, so please bare with me. I used roberj13's RedLINE theme as a base/sample and went from there. I still don't know how to make it into a .zip, but I'm working on that now :).

I also have to work out some minor issues. I'm working on some custom stuff for the status bar as well.

Anywho....fire away....

everything looks very nice except i dont dig the facebook and twitter app look. it looks like you went from emerald to green? and the text of the fb and twitter doesnt jive with the other text (pull down notification). the bluetooth icon is dope. overall looks great.

Questions: :D
what music widget is that?
what home app are you using (the 3 icons on the bottom)?

I have to agree I do like it.

Minus the facebook and twitter... the icons look good though

I really like it. A green theme is one that I've been looking for for a while. Keep us updated when it's complete! :)

It looks like part of the reason the fbook and twitter app look different is the white background on both of them lightens up the green a bit in your mind, I found that out when trying to match the color on a dark theme. I kept going darker and it would never look right to me and then it was too dark all of a sudden.

Great start kook, keep it up.

Would white lettering look better on the notification drop down? Seems hard to read with black on green. Otherwise, most excellent job!

Edit: I think a more lime green color would be more my taste. But it is emerald....lol

This is why sapphire and cm are nice to theme for since the user can then just change the text color on the dropdown to whatever they want :D

LOL... did not realize that was in spare parts. I've been used to just changing time/clock/ticker text colors!

Nice! I like it. I'd run it for sure. Can you make a round battery icon for it in the emerald green, that goes yellow at 20% and red at 10%? (Personal preference, I find the round battery icons easier to read).

One more opinion from me... I kinda found Redline (and this one seems similar) to be difficult to see with the dark gray status bar and such. Wonder if lightening the gray would be better.... ok i'm done. Loving it though!

Some images need to be run through drawpatcher and recompiled (the weird stretched images). Keep plugging away. Oh, also the facebook and twitter widgets need the names to be green instead of red.
