Oh this is so cool I am extremely honored. I have not looked at my Deviant account in years. I currently don't do traditional art anymore. I am currently a programmer but I have always considered maybe making a LCARs interactive app someday. My intention of this project was to make every screen of the control panel. On the left side you see all the panel options.
The color scheme was influenced by Star Trek Nemesis which is a blue interface but I wanted to make it more colorful so I started experimenting with different colors. Eventually I came up with this gray blue / darker colors scheme.
For a time I was trying to create the Starship Map panel and was going to create my first side panel view of the starship but it started becoming too tedious and I got side tracked with my college. Overtime I forgot about the project. I never finished it but I might release it some day.
It is not in your face color. More toned down.
Would I be able to use parts of your image and incorporate into a start menu skin for Classic Shell?
I would use naturally, the left side, because it looks like a start menu already.
Probably pick up some of the colors from other parts.
Incorporating the color # bars might not work, due to the limitations of how the menu stretches,
but I would like to try.
If you do let me try, I will surely put your name credits in the Info, about what and who it is based on.
Don't get me wrong; I think that LCARS are terribly inadequate for the type of information that needs to be displayed, but canon is canon.
