A mock-up of a style I would like to see being used in Windows 8.
I just wanted to express my views on the future of Windows, and since I found this wonderful contest, I decided there couldn't be a better way to share my ideas...


Changes I would like to see in Windows 8:

1. Do away with AeroGlass! I would really like to see a different view on the use of transparency - there should be a greater degree of window opacity.
2. Bring in a black and grey carbon-themed skin.
3. Make the Start Menu feature a cut-down version of Explorer to allow you to actually "start" directly with your files.
4. Improve the logon screen.
5. Separate the permanent elements of the taskbar and the open windows into two separate bars.
6. Make the more common buttons simple to access.
7. Add transparency to inactive windows in order to bring focus onto active ones.

What I would like to be kept the same:

1. Keep the Window switching method in Windows 7, but use names instead of icons.
2. Keep Flip3D (though I hardly use it any more ;) )
3. Maintain the stability and the performance speeds experienced in Windows 7 (which is now my primary OS).

- Wacom Intuos 5 M
- Photoshop cs5

it's been almost three years since I started to draw and paint, and as much time as I board spent on Deviant-Art. For me this is the best place i find for practice, progress, and find a big number of support and appreciation, here we can find people to help and support us in our learning !

I think if deviant art didn't exist, I wouldn't have made as much progress in recent years...It is always inspiring to paint with a goal and deviant art offer us these opportunities !

Is for this reasons i dedicate my gift to Deviant Art Rabbit hole   I am a dummy! 

Thank you !

I literally had 2 days to finish this project just to meet the deadline and I finally uploaded it with 10 minutes left to spare. I really wish I could have devoted more time into this but realistically, I had other priorities.

Regardless, "Contagious" was the initial emotional response after I drove a Scion (TC to be particular). I was in California visiting my sister and she has a fully loaded 05' model. I took it for a cruise down I5 and eventually absorbed that contagious Scion feeling.

Design Brief:

For this design piece, a subtle cf-based front end is mixed with the racer boy colors of vibrant red and black. As it progresses through the body lines, a balance of abstract thoughts and rhythms finally emerge. It is also complimented with an import model and a set of 18" Volk Racing RE30's to commemorate the Scion's presence in the import-tuning culture.

Hmm, so this is my version of myself as the Mad Hatter of Alice in Wonderland.
I really like how it turned out. :D

I have been working on this on my free time in the last two weeks or so, and I'm thankful to finally finish it.
Digitally painted in Photoshop CS2.

When I saw the Picture Yourself in Wonderland contest, I thought I had to do draw something for it, or else I wouldn't be ME, since I am quite a fan of the film. :3

So here it is.
:D I hope you like it.

Updated with a center placement and removed gradient in case contest allows only flat colors.

Please fave and comment for support.

This is an older T design but I think it is one of my best and is definitely worth a go in the DeviantWear contest.

100% Vector as always.
