SDN Spotlight: PuterDudeJim aka RedneckDude
jimbo9294 , Monday 12 July 2010 - 20:53:15 // comment: 12



This Spotlight features PuterDudeJim aka RedneckDude
What can I say about PuterDudeJim, who is known also known as RedneckDude?
Well he has been skinning for 5 years, and a member here at SDN for almost 3years.
He is also a Journeyman at WinCustomize.com, as well as member at Skinnalicious, SkinArtistry, Maxstyles, and DeviantArt.
He has been part of many community projects, Tracer, Excalibur, My Dirty Valentine, and the SDN community project, A Skinner’s World.
PuterDudeJim is known for inspiring several WindowBlinds Skins: Aero Station, Copper Carbon Fibre, and Pressurized, just to name a few.
Hmm....Usually it is the other way around.



How did you get started in skinning?
”Well, I got my very first PC in 2005. Within days I stumbled upon Stardock/WinCustomize. I loved WindowBlinds from the get-go. It didn't take long to discover DesktopX and Gef. So I really liked DX because I saw the potential to create things, things that did more than just look good. I started tearing down parts of skins others did, and piecing my own together. Soon, I started learning some rudimentary (I know, big word for a redneck) skills with PaintShopPro and Ulead's Photo Editor. I can't even remember the name of that one, been a while.

I used to dismantle WMP skins and rebuild them in DX. I am amused at some of the stuff I did early on. Soon, I got one together that I thought was good enough to upload. It was rejected, I had used something that wasn't mine and didn't have permission. As time went on, I tried again, with all original work, and got accepted.

Then, I got permission to do a skin based on a WindowBlinds, and the rest is history...as they say.”


Who are your favorite skinners?
”Well....hmmm. Difficult, since there are so many. I'll give you a few, not in any certain order, mind you, I know I'll miss someone.

Mirsguy, Xiandi, vStyler, Murex, 2 of 3, I.R Brainiac, robbieboy, night train, lightstar, RND , Mikeb314, treetog, adni18, Tiggz, Bilbo, man, the list goes on and on......

And I must mention my tester, Wizard1956. He has only one skin, a wallpaper, that I coached him a bit on, but he has stuck with me through thick and thin, even through 2 full repopulations of my WC gallery...”


Has anyone of them, inspired you to make a skin? If so, elaborate a bit.
” Well, several, actually. If you mean an original skin, I'd say I have several inspired by vStyler, like my clear skins. Being that I do DX mainly, I'd have to say Gef, he was my first favorite way back when.
Technically, since I base most of my skins on blinds, I'd think they are each inspired by the artist who made the blind being based upon.”


Of the skins you made, which is your favorite?
”I like most of them pretty much the same. I guess, if I must pick one, hmmmm...., I guess it would be the WinCustomize Community Wallpaper and Gadget because of how it was made and what it stands for.”

Do you have anything you are working on now?
”Other than my late WindowBlinds, I'm always working on a DX theme, or widget.
Right now, I'm working on a DesktopX theme for an upcoming WindowBlinds by the AVMAN. Robotic Defiance DX. And Heigar is working on a blind, he temporarily calls Area 5150. I am making 2 DesktopX themes for it. It is so good, it had to have 2 styles.”




What skins are you using right now on your desktop?
”I am currently running the Music WindowBlinds, a Stardock MyColors skin, recolored with a texture added. Music icon package, A wallpaper by vladstudio called The Tree of Books, MB Eye Of The Damned Cursor FX, and my newest DesktopX theme, available at SDN, called AutoBox DX.”

Stay tuned to find out who is next to be put under the Spotlight.

SDN Spotlight: Quentin94 aka ArileenDesign
jimbo9294 , Tuesday 09 February 2010 - 06:52:05 // comment: 13



This Spotlight features Quentin94 aka ArileenDesign.
Except for a very few, most of us know Quentin. Cuvelier Quentin aka ArileenDesign has been skinning since 2003 and I bet has a skin for almost every skinning application.
He favors creating DesktopX Gadgets.
He has been a member here at Skinning.net almost 3 years. He is also a moderator at WinCustomize.com as well as a member at Deviantart, SkinArtistry, and Skinbase.
I worked with Quentin on several community projects, most recently the SDN Community Project – A Skinner’s World. From that I found a good friend.
So with that being said, here is this month’s Spotlight, your friend and mine…..Quentin94.



How did you get started in skinning?
”Started with changing the color schemes under Windows 95, then to BootSkin and LogonXP, then DesktopX and the others.”

Who are your favorite skinners?
”MikeB314, sViz, Tiggz, DanilloOc, and way too many others to name.”

Has anyone of them, inspired you to make a skin? If so, elaborate a bit.
”No not really one, but every skinner past, present, old or new inspire me.
I learned from the skins, trying to understand how they work, mostly, because at first I didn’t write or talk English. I thus thank all the people who allowed me by their work and their writings to learn how to skin and English.”


Of the skins you made, which is your favorite?
”I don’t really have a favorite.”

Do you have anything you are working on now?
”I’m working on a suite for months (years is even better). Sadly real life keeps me busy and I do not find the time to finish it for now.” Note: It is MoonLights the screen shot is below



What skins are you using right now on your desktop?
”The suite I’m creating ”

jimbo9294 , Monday 04 January 2010 - 19:43:45 // comment: 11



Well the holiday season is over. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year.
There is no better way to kick off the New Year other than this month’s SDN Spotlight.
This Spotlight features DrillnBoss. We all are familiar with DrillnBoss, with his outstanding Cursor XP and FX skins.
DrillnBoss, a Master Apprentice at WinCustomize.com has been skinning since 2004, also makes Windowblinds and Rainlendar skins as well as SysMetrix skins.
DrillnBoss has been member here at Skinning.net since 2007 and he is a member at SkinArtistry2.com.
Just a Tip if you don't have the Gearend Cursor...get it now. It is awesome!



How did you get started in skinning?
”I first discovered Windowblinds on my brothers computer, I said, "how the heck did you do that?" and he told me about a website called Wincustomize. I downloaded skins till they cut me off, so I subscribed. It wasn't long before I had to create my own. It's that simple.”

Who are your favorite skinners?
”All of them.”

Has anyone of them, inspired you to make a skin? If so, elaborate a bit.
”J. Aroche. I like his cursors, He motivates me.”

Of the skins you made, which is your favorite?
”Desktop Warbird. I was happy with the way it turned out.”
(Footnote: Desktop Warbird was the Cursor of the Year (2007) at WinCustomize.com)

Do you have anything you are working on now?
”Yes I have a Windowblinds (skin) I've been working on. It's called Gearend. The Gearend cursor is available now but a new cursor will be released with the blind. Don't look for it before February, I'm skinning my living room and it has to be done before the Super bowl.”



What skins are you using right now on your desktop?
”I am using Gearend because I have been working on it and testing it.”

Stay tuned to find out who is next to be put under the Spotlight!
