Excellent job  Facebook like bullet 
May I ask , How does it takes you to create such a complete theme ?
sephirotess's avatar
Thanks a lot & thanks for the fav :hug:.

To answer your question, it takes several days to create such a suites, but less than a week :-). The skins code does not take much time to tell the truth. The habit of creating for Rainmeter allows me to work quickly. The longest part, for the present case is the work of the bars. These are not png, but code (shape meters). And I like to give some aspect to my bars, as you can see. These are the details that take a lot of time. There are also any corrections, checks or adjustments of the skins that require a little time :-).

omg, coding ! that's why your skins looks that it takes so much effort ! So you are an Expert Nod 
My skins are not a lot of code, most of them images
and the hardest part for me is to get the idea of the new skin, hehe Sweating a little...

The idea is always the problem :-(. Hard to do something really new. Sometimes I feel that everything has already been done, lol.

I am not an expert, I just have a few years of experience ;-). I used a lot of images (png) before, but I spent too much time (according to me, lol) drawing pretty background for my skins or drawing wallpapers. I'm not an expert in shape meters, but I can do pretty well things. The code can never replace beautiful and incredible png, but for what I do, I think it's enough :-).
MunaNazzal's avatar
you are absolutely right. For me, I am struggling to get new Ideas. I am trying to come up with new things
such as little animation in skins Sweating a little... 
Hmm, that's mean I am still at the (png) level, lol.
sephirotess's avatar
You have good ideas and it's always interesting :-).

I no longer use png (except for weather icons, among others), to spend less time drawing and producing smaller rmskin files. But I do not denigrate their use, on the contrary. We can always produce beautiful suites with png ;-). So continue your great work with the PNG :clap:. And maybe I use it again, lol.

I totally agree with sephirotessNod 
It all depends on what the skin is like..Whether it's simple or complicated.If it's simple, it will take a bit of time to encode.
Everything depends.I'll give you one example: I spent about two weeks to make these icons for my skin: Realistic weather forecast 4. For other icons from this series, it took me about 5-6 days.
As far as coding is concerned, it all depends on 1-2 hours up to 2 days, depends on the quantity. ;) (Wink) 
MunaNazzal's avatar
oh, yes, indeed!
and as she says, new ideas are hard to get!
we should call this "Rainmeter Block" as the "Art block" for artist XD.

True,true..;) (Wink) Rainmeter Block as the "Art block" for artist..Ahahaahah you're right;) (Wink)
