The comments posted by digitalsauce make me very upset. Constructive criticism is always open to any artist, but completely bashing his skin because it does not meet YOUR tastes is completely rude and unacceptable.
Kuantum is an amazing skin, and its legibility to you should not be judged by the amount of :+fav:'s it has recieved. Because to tell you the truth most people who download skins now a days don't even bother to add a nice comment, they just want to get right to the skin.
KoL try to ignore digitalsauce, I know he must really be annoying you, but he's trying to get inside your head. This skin is amazing in my opinion, your best yet.
Keep skinning!

"ooeer, .. hate it ... it looks cheap, tacky and nasty -- a definate "no no" for me; .. resembles some of the circa 2002 WindowBlinds skins that used to do the rounds.."
Your kidding right? Windowblinds are or were "bubbles" back then.

This is a top-notch theme. I like it.
Good work!!

For me it does feel like one of those ugly Windowblind skins of old .. I was absolutely shocked after installing the VS to discover that this was a "Kol" release because he's never been this bad..

I would like to hear if your still of the same opinion after a day or so's use of the style .. I'm sure in that time you will have calmed down from the shock of the 'initial' gimmicky nature the style presents, and the realisation that its not of his usual high standard.

The problem could be that a few of his skins have been created as cross-skin releases (WB/VS from day #1)... and therefore he's getting too 'involved' in the look and feel of trying to keep two camps happy by placing this skin somewhere in the middle.

OK you get it wrong. Im not trying to make WB/VS users happy. This is an update of an old theme that I made, Quantum [link]

To me this is one of my best themes.

:icondigitalsauce:
digitalsauce Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2005
That was a 2003 release, in which case it might might explain the 'dated' feel this newer reworking/skin has.. you know, the time when almost everything was bubbled/embossed/curved/big/bulky/loud .. since then there had been a move to more compliant themes that feel "just right" sitting on a desktop.

I do feel that you might be spending a little too much time keeping WB users happy, spreading yourself a tad too thin, or possibly you've lost inspiration and are looking a little too far back instead of forward; lets face it, the Apple conversions have been done to death and I guess you want to be remembered for more than being a "good porter", but it hasn't worked with this release and thats just a fact you have to accept.

I've read some of the more constructive comments from people who have used this skin .. and they seem to be saying that its "too white" .. "its too bright .. " .. "I don't like the start panel .. " and the fact that your only up to 26 +faves after 3 days is pretty much proof that this skin is one of your poorer skins. StefanKa's beautiful "SE" update had around 143 +faves in 2 days if I remember correctly and that must surely be enough for you to accept that your latest effort just isn't on par to previous works.

Forget your pool of back-patters .. because sooner or later they'll stop if you carry on like this.

You have a completely wrong idea of me. Iím not trying to make anyone happy and I didnít create this because I donít want to be remembered only as a good porter. What a stupid comment.
Iím not competing with anyone. I donít get a lot of favs, even the most downloaded msstyle here on deviantart (Aluminum Alloy) only have 143 favs. Comments like its "too bright" or "too white" are ok with me but say that the theme is cheap or poor because you donít like it itís not ok.

If you think this theme is shit why donít you create one and see if you can do it better. If not I think you need to shut up and have a little more respect on people that create themes for free.

bye

["You have a completely wrong idea of me. Iím not trying to make anyone happy and I didnít create this because I donít want to be remembered only as a good porter. What a stupid comment."]

I would argue otherwise.. and that its all too blaringly obvious that you have been caught up in the middle of two camps and that your influences have resulted in this self-indulgent atrocity.

...
["Iím not competing with anyone."]

Oh, but you are..

...
["I donít get a lot of favs, even the most downloaded msstyle here on deviantart (Aluminum Alloy) only have 143 favs. "]

Yes, one of your more popular conversions at a time when there was little true inspiration in the VS scene .. times have changed now as has +faving .. the vast majority no longer +fave for the sake of it. But like box-office returns we can usually gage by the two days worth of faving how people are going to take to it; +23 is an awful return because it just means that people are not connecting with your presentation. I would also argue that at least 18 of those are from fan-boys.
....

["Comments like its "too bright" or "too white" are ok with me but say that the theme is cheap or poor because you donít like it itís not ok."]

Kol.. this theme is more Windowblind than VisualStyle, just check out your own screenshots - and no amount of dressing the blow up is going to change that. You might as well up sticks and dedicate all future releases to WindowBlinds if this is what VS users have to look forward to. You just have to accept that its not on par with your usual efforts. If anything you should be improving and sadly you've gone 2-3 years back with this style.
....

["If you think this theme is shit why donít you create one and see if you can do it better. If not I think you need to shut up and have a little more respect on people that create themes for free."]

Now whose being the silly-billy and getting all hot under the collar.. Let's get the facts straight - your all eager to soak up the praise but when someone gives you a certain amount of criticism you just can't accept it. You really have been living in a glass house and surrounded by your back-patters for too long.

I don't like this skin for all it represents, largely because its going backward to a time when we were overrun with loud, ugly, bulky and blaring skins. If anything DeviantArt was a place to get away from that sort of thing and you, sadly, have just taken us back there. And what's more, you just canít see how poor this skin really is.

Calm yourself down and move onto the next skin;.. but remember your only as good as your last release.

OK you are a fan of minimalistic skin, if you donít like more elaborate skin well donít use them and donít post comments that donít contribute anything on how to improve the theme.
I have received a lot of critics of my themes over the years and you can ask anyone that I accept those critics. What I donít accept is saying that the skins is poor and cheap without having a good argument and simply because you donít like it.

Next time if you donít have anything good to say donít post it.
I donít see how ďpoorĒ, like you say, this is theme is because is not. Sustenance and Kuantum are the best Iíve done to date and if you donít like them just donít use it. I know that a lot of people like them and that is what motivate me to continue working with this.

digitalsauce Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2005
Your terminology of "elaborate" to describe this skin clearly means that you look upon your skins being rated by the amount of "gimmicks" they introduce and not the overall work or functionality; -- your centrepieces are title-bars/start buttons with large awkward "blaring in-your-face components" that when stripped away leave little true design innovation. If anything you are pulling a fast one.. attempting to take attention away what's not there by drawing attention elsewhere; big-gaps of devoid inspiration.

I get the impression from all that has been said, that you have no interest in the actual user who is going to sit down and work with your skin; just hit them with a few bloated buttons, colours, panels, scream .. shout.. but do not give any thought into the operation of the skin in daily use for prolonged periods of time; ďin-your faceĒ works for you so you stick with it.

Take your Sustenance skin as a prime example, seeing as you raised the issue. If you remove the most ďin-your-faceĒ aspects that ultimately define this ďelaborateĒ skin, youíll find that its void of any true substance.. infact, its bare bones.. extremely bland, bordering on banality. There is no true innovation to it and yet here you are arguing that its one of your better skins.

Your better skins, of which there have been numerous, have ultimately been from ďconversionsĒ whereby you have had most of the glyphs/etc. supplied from other works, keeping you ďon-railsĒ and to a more structured design; yet you have clearly learned nothing from this time.

I continue to stand by my original comments that you have created an abomination in regard to the first VisualStyle that belongs solely in the WindowBlinds arena.

i like it but i personally think that the gradients are just a bit off. it doesnt look cylendrical...it looks more flat than that. the shadow doesnt extend high enough to complete the roundness of the shape. i love your themes with having most of them on my computer. i just wish you would listen to me because you did almost the same thing with your visual style based off of your site (including your site): it looks irregular.

try having a second go at it. none of us are perfect, it'll look much better, trust me. :)
