Goat-head by Suwun Goat-head by Suwun
Yes, I had fun with it. xD The image is self-rendered, the butterflies are taken from another image.
The winamp skin features the coolest character ever. If anybody says the opposite, he lies. Goat-headed butlers are epic no matter what others say. They are from Umineko No Naku Koro Ni, they are some kind of servants of Beatrice, the Golden Witch. The butterflies also represent Beatrice. If you have seen the anime (or played the visual novel - I haven't), I do not need to explain that. ;)
I wanted something simple and clear, yet not too simple. The volume bar, panning bar and the equalizer is hidden, because I had no idea what to do with them. Everything I tried to do looked too messed up. -.- The media library is also not customized, sorry for my laziness.
:+fav:s and comments are appreciated.

I really like the butterflies and colors. Typically when an image of a person (goat thing...) is used in winamp skins I prefer as little buttons/sliders over them as possible, so I like how clean the image of him is.

Thank you. :D I tried to make it as clean as possible, so the buttons and other things won't cover the main image itself. ^^

A couple of suggestions since I'm already here and looking at it:

I think a way for you to deal with the volume bar would be to add a custom slider looking like a butterfly. I would also move the main render to be placed somewhere else, ideally further up the main window although ideally I would see the main render go away. The skin is prettier without.

I would also redo the cbuttons into actual icons because it fits the overall style and theme better. The font you chose is pretty bad and doesn't really fit. You're going for a minialistic style so you need a clean and simple font style such as Arial unless you are going to add urban details that have more of a "vintage feel" like vines and flowers.

For the equalizer window I would suggest using light sliders like you did for the pos bar. In general I think being lazy (and I think unfortunately you were in the end) doesn't really improve the overall skin. You could easily have added the close, winshade and minimize buttons and the OASDV without it detracting at all but rather enhance the overall skin. You could've added a cool reflection effect for all of them, I think it would fit your overall style well.

I don't mean to be harsh but it's annoying watch a great idea being wasted away because it's not being worked upon enough ;)

Thank you. :) You weren't harsh, and I can learn from your critics much. Unfortunately I don't have any time now to improve my skills, but I'll keep your hints in mind for the next time I'll be able to work. ><
Sorry for the late answer. >.<

Awesome skin, great design. There are a few things I'd do different but you have an awesome style I like it.
