    This is a continuation of this thread which got locked up. Some people suggested a comic book theme skin, starcraft, barbecue skin, warcraft theme and popcorn theme. I will post screenshots of those in here later and cross my fingers this thread doesn't get locked up either.

    I've moved my themes out of the Other Styles section after I noticed that Russ moved his mobile theme out of that section. I didn't think it was fair to him so I moved all my styles out of that section and moved them to the other sections. Now there's only 3 styles in the Other Styles section.

    After moving them all I noticed that there are now only 19 Dark styles compared to 40 Light styles. There are also only 3 seasonal styles. I would like to bring up the number of Dark and Seasonal styles. If you have any suggestions lemme know!

    A comic book themed style is something I've always wanted to design but never got around to doing. I think once I eventually get my cintiq that is something def on my todo list with hand drawn art. So a comic themed style is one I think you should attempt.

    Every other post I gotta google what your talking about. So cintiq is a wacom pen eh?

    I want a wacom!!! My first talent is art. I can draw with my eyes closed. When I get a wacom I'mma be having fun!!!!

    This is a dark-theme or seasonal style theme thread so I chose a 'dark' apple product.

    Ah, my bad. Just to me that theme doesn't portray the apple idea. Maybe add some darker gradients that are sort of glossy for the cat_headings?

    Try lowering the tone of the gradients (navigation menu) when I think of an apple theme I think of something light, clean and minimalistic. Add in some gloss where necessary (perhaps cat headers) node icons etc but overall I think a light based minimalistic approach is the best route here.

    Ps. I wouldn't start going overboard with the gloss and I think you really need to tone down the gradients, there's just far too much contrast in them. Though if your going for a dark theme, ignore everything I suggested.

    I don't know how to do the glossy stuff or change the category headers. They are really ugly.
