Dragon Style by dragonkahn Dragon Style by dragonkahn
For use with Style XP [link]

This theme is my first time skinning anything. Even making the cursors was a first for me. So, it's important that I get feedback on what I'm missing or what I did wrong.

The wallpaper is a modified version of my Sleek and Sporty wallpaper. [link]

I put a whole lot of time into this, been working on it for a whole week. So I hope you enjoy it.

NOTE: The Explorer Bar (the left-sided bar with the lists of common tasks) is unskinned. Although I have made the skin for it, Style XP doesn't seem to allow me to export it along with the rest of the theme. If you know how to fix this, please let me know.

And let me know if you experience any other bugs or irregularities.

zen-phoenix Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008
Man, this is your FIRST skin???? This is the first skin I stuck with when I first got into XP customization, and it remains one of my all-time favorites!

The only issue I have is that the start button looks really out of place when the taskbar is on a side instead of top or bottom, which became my preferred location some time ago.

LOVE the yin-yang Start button, though, and the Min/Res/Close buttons. Keep it up!

Hello !

Great work !

Do you have fixed the problem with this :

"The Explorer Bar (the left-sided bar with the lists of common tasks) is unskinned. Although I have made the skin for it. Style XP doesn't seem to allow me to export it along with the rest of the theme. If you know how to fix this, please contact me."

And now, with the current version of StyleXP, does allow it ?

I wait and I hop…

This is so awesome. I have no other words. +Fav
Nanaki7 Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2007
how so you use the cursors
Ngamer01 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2007
If you've installed this VS correctly, the cursors should automatically change to the ones incorporated into this VS.

Anyways, I'm ashamed that I didn't notice this VS sooner as I'm a fan of dragons. This is a great VS for anyone to use.
Nanaki7 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2007
it wont recognize the cursors when i try too

I've been using this theme for awhile and got this from a different download site.

It's the best i've seen and I love it!

Can you post up your wallpaper (the one with the gold coloured shiny eyes and the gold coloured Symbol)?
armoredcavalry Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2007
Amazing theme. I have about 30 different visual styles, and this is my favorite one! I use your cursors for all the themes. Great job. :D
DarkDrows Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2007

I love this theme and i don't want to change it to other one XD

Concussion-Studio Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2007
Nice love it man. my desctop looks nice now
philho Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Excellent style. I tried many, not much are complete and nice.
I reduced slightly the size of the title bar buttons, but they look ugly this way...
I like the tabs, but the active one doesn't stand out much.
For some reason, the MDI child window buttons are not visible (WinMerge, Agent Ransack...).
The Task bar is a bit too tall and has too big margins on right of Start button and on left of Notification area.
Despite the remarks above, it is one of my favorite themes, complete, consistent, nice.

This is a great VS. I'm going to be using this for a lonnng time. :)
The-Vanguard Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2006
i adore this theme, my fiencee sent it to me a while back and i don't think i ever knew it was off of dA, i'm pretty sure she got it elsewhere. but regardless, it is love <3

and curiously, i've been using your Sleek and sporty walpaper for a couple of years or so now, i actually modified it to make the orb in the centre purple per my tastes, which i won't release or anything, so don't worry. but i had no idea they were both so linked and had the same creator. small word or something!

a purple variation would be really awesome by the way xp ~hint~
shonon Featured By Owner May 7, 2006
it great. one of my most favorite theme.

thank you.

The theme didn't quite work for me. The desktop and cursors work fine, but the windows and taskbar aren't working.
DarkPhoenix1 Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2006
awesome theme.. looks uber.. xD
dragon-architect Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2006  Hobbyist Writer
I tried to use the theme. The desktop and cursors loaded fine, but the taskbar & windows aren't working, and my computer has left me clueless. I even did some file hunting in the WINDOWS folder under C:\. Is there anything I'm missing?
tatsouri Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2005
hawtest desktop layout ive ever seen. sweetness.
