SDN Spotlight: Carguy1
It is nice to have the SDN Spotlight started again. We have some really good artists lined up for future Spotlights in the coming months.
This monthâ€™s Spotlight features CarGuy1. If you use Deskscapes (a program by Stardock that allows users to have animated wallpaper on their Windows desktop.) then you know CarGuy1.
Carguy1, a Master Skinner at WinCustomize.com, has created Wallpapers, Screen Savers, LogonStudio skins and Bootskins. But he is known for his .Dream files. Carguy1, has been a member of SDN for almost 3 years, and is also a member at Skinartistry2 and has worked on several community skinning projects. His designs and animations are a standard for others who want make .Dream files.
How did you get started in skinning?
â€I guess I got the bug when I customized my tricycle with finger paint. .â€
Who are your favorite skinners?
â€Thatâ€™s a hard oneâ€¦there are so many great skinners out there to pick just one.â€
Has anyone of them, inspired you to make a skin? If so, elaborate a bit.
â€I suppose you could say I was inspired by The MasterBaronâ€™s work.
MB does some fabulous work and trying to figure out how he did something has allowed me to see other ways to be creative.â€
Of the skins you made, which is your favorite?
â€They all areâ€¦itâ€™s kinda hard to pick just one. If I had to Iâ€™d pick Rough Seas for Dreams and Sunset Sail for walls.â€
Do you have anything you are working on now?
â€I usually have a couple Dreams at various stages of completion. Right now I have a space scene that Iâ€™m creating with one of RNDâ€™s walls and an ocean scene that Iâ€™m messing with. I liked the way the Ominous Horizon Dream turned out so well that Iâ€™m stoked on creating a couple more.â€
What skins are you using right now on your desktop?
â€On one machine I have my Ominous Horizon Dream, Flex Color WindowBlinds by i-Umami, Yellow Icon Package by Stardock Design, and Windows 7 Xtreme Nexus Dock theme by JcRabbit. On my laptop I have my Approaching Storm wall, Knot Vista WindowBlinds by IRBrainiac, and Alpha 1 Icon package by mrSkope.â€
Stay tuned to find out who is next to be put under the Spotlight.
