Dorian-theme ~ A Darkly Elegant Theme

Dorian has many of its own unique characteristics. To name a couple, hovered buttons grow in size, and insensitive buttons/widgets have a diagonal pattern distinguishing them from normal or active states.
Dorian's appearance is consistent between Gtk2 and Gtk3. Gtk2 uses the pixmap-engine** to resemble Gtk3 as closely as possible.

*gtk3.6 is required for gtk3 applications(Gnome3 apps). If using Gnome, the corresponding version is necessary (Gnome3.6).
**gtk2 is entirely drawn with pixmaps-engine using image files, in this case predominately vector. Pixmap-engine is know to draw windows slower than other(murrine,clearlooks,etc...) engines; therefore the gtk2 portion of this theme renders in roughly twice the time as other non-pixmap-engine themes. This is not a problem or concern, Dorian's gtk2 draws its windows very fast, just not as fast as other theme engines.
***gtk2 is drawn with vector graphics(svg). Most distributions include libsvg(or equivalent) by default.

Disclaimer: I'm not an expert :lol: This is just the way I work.

I really hope this is a helpful step by step guide for someone looking to improve their emote expressions. I find that having exagerated facial features helps a lot with static emotes, as there is no movement. (And sorry if there are typos)

If you want any help, don't hesitate to ask :) Note or comment~

Here are the stock images I mentioned:

Recently I have been obsessed with Kawaii Food Avatars. :meow: Apparently the original Ramen avatar was over 10kbs so I had to simplify it to this. The frames were made in Gimp.

Please credit in Signature if possible! Enjoy. :dummy:
