We likely won't be adding it soon, but everyone is welcome to submit ideas. When we get around to adding them, I'll let you guys know in this thread. Since its the lead single, we might add a few, we'll see how it goes. Also, it might be a good idea to wait till the official Loca pictures are released. But, feel free to submit your skins whenever.

@Wolfy nr 1 looks great!


I'm unsure about the colors. I based the colors off Shakira. Her outfit is green/black and her skin tone is tan-ish. So, that's what I used as a template for the colors. I like the green/black/tan color combination because its a new color scheme for the site (I can work with it due to the tan color). But, I dunno if green is the right color. I could easily change the green to another color... maybe blue? I dunno. We already have blue skins though, maybe I should stick to my original idea and just leave it green.

Darkblue, grungy blue could fit. But IMO the green is a winner.

Yeah, the image centered looks way too empty on the sides:

i think something like this would work better. I noticed you made a MITT wallpaper that used a font with similar graphics. You could use that same font decor to make the ShakiraMedia letters. Something like this:

note: this is just an example to get an idea of what it would look like. I took a few second to put that together on photoshop using cut and paste. Its not an actual design.

I'm adding the skins myself now, so things will speed up now since Xandrios can focus on the comments section now.

Can you guys let me know what you think of the colors: (Note: I'm not done, I still need to change some colors around)

Very nice, I'll add it. Don't worry about the center section, just make the header and the sides. I can make the center match.

I think the font color could use a little more decor.

I liked Shin's first header more. With only one Shakira. that was so elegant and nice. Maybe "Shakira" and "Media" to the sides would have been enough too. Anyway. I'm glad that at least one version is added. I like this golden girl skin :D

oh and that border is sooo awsome Eti :) It's a great skin. :D

Yh but it looked empty like that. About ur skins: nr1 has ŕ great border! And the Sale el sol one looks so professional!

@wolfy: what border? Btw u also think we should add only 1 Shakira in the pic like the poster? Or we can do v1/2 cuz these have significant differences

I agree with Vik, the new one is nice because it fills up the gaps, but the original image is much more elegant. I think using that image in the center and using Shakira and media on the sides is a better idea. You could give Shakira and Media the same decor that you used for the center image. That would make it look better. What I do is that I rasterize the font so I can then use the same effects that I used on the main pic.

Instead of using a black shadow on the font, it might look better with an outer glow. Since the font is black, the black shadow fades into the font making it look messy.
