We've received quite a few requests for a skin using the Ibiza pics:
http://www.shakiraga...um/details/5130

People think it would make a great summer skin.

Anyone want to make one?

I would like to give it a try :blackdreamer:

And to prevent upcoming problems, which over colors can I (and other people who wanna give it a try) use for it? Or should the header and borders fit a current existing skin? Or will this become a totally new skin?

Most of the time I find ways to make them match, unless if its a completely different color scheme. Most things match with gray, and I have a light gray template. The other has light brown colors. Usually I can change enough parts to get it to match. Don't worry too much about that. If I can't get it to match, then I'll let you know, maybe you can then just change a few colors around and then I can use it.

I dunno, even though people really like these pics, the hot pink and flowing fabric makes this skin look very gay :shakifanatica54: I'm starting to think that the S photoshot is much more appropriate for a skin. There's not much we can do with hot pink flowing fabric. The skin will always come out looking extremely feminine :shakifanatica54:

Its very easy to make the skin look pretty gay, thats for sure haha :P
I'm still working on mine and I had the same problem, but I changed it a bit and it looks better now I think.

I also like the skin you posted, but I think it will be too big for people with slow internet connections, so that might be a problem

I personally don't have a problem with feminine skins. We can add them, but we can't make it a default skin because it doesn't appeal to a wide range of people.

IMO this sking would be something "new" on this site because Martijn's style is different and very good. I really like this header/skin. But it's just my opinion. :)
But I also think these pics are not that important. You cant add a new skin everytime we get a new photoshoot so... yes, it's confusing :P

I only will say this, the skin of martijn can be used for MORE then only the ibiza shoot... there is lots of potential.

Still nice to see an ibiza skin added though, its a different great style. :) Though you said there wouldnt be added skins for a long time, or does this mean u got back to adding them?

No, it means I sent Xan those files awhile back and he barely got around to adding it. What I liked about it is that it gives people new ideas for future skins. Its the first skin that has images on the sides, not on top as a header.

Yes, and it's very interesting idea to make such skins. It's my favorite now, so thanks to one who created this wonderful thing :D I think you may keep on creating skins without headers. Though when I saw headers from Viktoria, I was sad that they are not used. Especially third header, it's amazing.
My Internet is very slow, but I have no problems with this skin.
