Skinmasters #10 vStyler
Welcome to Skinmasters! A series of interviews with top graphic designers and skinners on deviantART.
The tenth interview of the series features an artist who's skins I quickly realised were always going to be quality. It's a pleasure to interview him. The famous Skinner/Themer I am talking about is of course vStyler
John aka vStyler is a name known in many deskmod forums and specialised sites on customization. He has made some great skins and premium skins. You should definitely check out his works! I've selected a few of my favourites for your viewing :-)

Hello John, for those that haven't heard about you... could you tell us all a little about yourself?
I started skinning about 8 years ago, first visual styles, I worked for TGTsoft.com StyleXP then moved over to Windowblinds, I currently have Master SKinner status on  Wincustomize.com and do freelance work for Stardock and other clients.

lol.... gonna leave these comments visible here as testimony to the intellect of rippers and supporters of ripping...

your little 'bot' threat has been reported... pitiful though it was... what a sad representative of skinning you lot are... I must admit I had no idea I was commenting on the page of a juvenile, in mind if not body.... "relize"...lol...says it all..... no wonder discussion lost on you... one day, when you're all grown up... you might try reading through my comments..
I will say again in reply to you...

"looking around at these themes.... it seems you lot need windowblind artists to copy to make your designs look half way decent... we're finding more & more rips.. how sad that your talent pool is so shallow in originality....

as for Mr Grim meaning no malicious intent... if he had an ounce decency he would have removed his pay skin by now...not profit from other's work... theft of Intellectual Property can't be blown out of proportion enough...
for you people to try to justify and trivialise this issue... is certainly a measure of your morals..

as far as making vStyler's skin look better.... I'm not going to argue that point with people who are so one-eyed.... the point is... it was NOT his design to TRY & make better... end of story...

reputations only plummet (note the 'e' )....when you sink to ripping other's work & supporting that.... not when you expose it and seek to right it by protecting artist's rights.

I'll leave you to your little cesspit of copyists... which seems to be growing by the hour....and we'll see what we can do to clean it up...

If you own Poison..which you seem to... at least you have the pleasure of looking at a vStyler original....only somewhat bastardised... you can think of that every time you use it.. "

well I hope you relize you stuck your nose in where it was'nt welcome and you've dragged other people into this for no reason, I think you should be ashamed of yourself, and yes I am ashamed of myself and what I have said, but I will not get accused of somethings I did'nt do nor will my friends

what a snide little scumbag you are.... and yes... I suppose anyone is more superior to a thief...

as you seem concerned with page views....this is just a token site...my home is WC...where people like you are snuffed out with a very speedy flick of a button...

this has nothing whatsoever to do with 'group's, 'fans', just common decency...of which you seem to lack in abundance.....there you are...another big word for you to look up..

seems like some of your 'fans' on your site are just beginning to wake up to you and your deception....."my Poison theme" indeed...

as for what's annoying vStyler....it's little twerps like you that don't have the imagination to come up with your own ideas.... pathetic wannabes who then whine and carry on like you are when you're caught out..

we'll 'move along' when you shove off...or are shoved''...more likely...

utterly ashamed Australia is on your profile...

Actually? Her intellect was never in question, nor her ethics/morals nor education. They are impeccable, and incomprehensible to one such as you.

This is all about you and your illegal actions, GRiM.

What gets to all of us is your unprincipled, arrogant and obnoxious personality...or rather, "Poisonality".

The faster you and your ilk are dealt with and dispatched, the better for all.

By the way, Bebi Bulma has a rather novel and appropriate way to deal with you. I hope she succeeds.

Wow, you like to use allot of big words, does that make you feel superior, anyway I really don't care what you all have to say, you are all in your WindowBlinds Group and you all have your own fans for the work you do.

I have many watchers and fans and considerably more page views then you, almost as many as vStyler in just over a year that I have been making styles, the sales on my Poison theme will in no way affect vStyler's venom theme and I know that is what is annoying him more then anything else, the fact I am selling a better theme for less money and lets face it, a fair price is what really gets to him.

I am really over this, it's getting very old and you are all boring me, please lets move along now.
