This skin with Rei Ayanami
from Neon Genesis Evangelion
(if you'll have a chance to see
this Series - don't miss it!)
is my first skin, created with
Microsoft Paint, Notepad and
Microangelo v5.5. Source
picture was converted into
monochrome format with
Microsoft Photo Editor.
I tried not to use more then
two colors during my work, so
this skin seems rather simply.
All windows are skinned.

Yesterday I started exploring of Winamp's
main window structure. Now I guess I know
enough about it and I'm gonna try to create
my on skin for main window now. I'll be
creating from monochrome picture with
Rei Ayanami. Okay, let's go...
It's time to go to bed... Some part of work
is done, and I can say, that it was a good
to create a skin like this. Maybe it won't
be good, but this is my first skin and I like
it anyway. Well, that's enough for today, I
guess I'll continue tomorrow...
Yes! I'm ready with my skin's main window!
Of course, I had to delete Volume &
Balance bars, but they were just on Rei's
eyes, I had no choice. I've even made
monochrome icons for that window. I can't
understand structure of "viscolor.txt" file.
No, sure I've finished main window
completely, but still cannot see what dots
should I write there to make something
transparent. Well, now I'll have to explore
Well, I'm ready to create equalizer window.
I hope so...
Whoooh! I've finished two equalizer files at last.
I like it. Really. Of course it's much more better
when both the main & equalizer windows are
opened, 'cause they in fact are parts of one
picture. But it's good in minimized state as well.
In the morning I'm gonna create icons for
equalizer, and then start exploring playlist editor
window. But that'll be tomorrow...
Icons for equalizer window are ready. Now I'm
gonna explore playlist editor structure.
It was harder then I expected, but I did it at
last. No, I haven't created playlist editod
window already, but now I know It's structure
I need to have a break. And then I guess I'll
be ready for work.
Playlist editor is ready! Cursors are done too.
I don't like it's borders, but if you won't stare
on them, all will be nice. As for me it is good
work. It's a pity I haven't got more paper to
exlore next window - so I'll have to get a
break... Or maybe not?...
Yes! I've made video window without even
drawing it's structure. It was a great luck I
think. Now I'll try to complete anything else...
Well, library window is ready. I had to use
another one color instead of white while
creating it's skin. It's pity but I had to. As
I see there are only two windows to make:
minibrowser & AVS. SO, way to go...
I've just noticed then AVS window created
automatically with library window. It means
that after creating minibrouser skin I'll have
my first skin!..
I did it! It looks like I did it at last. All windows
ready, icons are included. I have now only
to write ReadMe file and zip this folder. I
hope this is my last mark in this file...
