    That looks pretty cool [​IMG] Is there a version with the calendar too?

    I was going to add the calender, but I never use it, and It took away from the simplistic look of the skin.

    That's true, it might look too crowded then. Also a calendar on the DS isn't the most important thing anyway...

    Still I'd be curious to see what it looked like with the calendar [​IMG]

    Currently working on a skin called "akLife". It'll be finished today or tomorrow.

    I like the simplicity of this skin though the blotch of paint at the top hmm..it's a bit dull becuase of its simple shape. If it were me, I'd replace it with a different blotch of paint that's more dynamic, but that's just me.

    One thing I've noticed with my transition from R4 to AK2i is the differences in the skin scene. R4 > Ak2i ATM IMO

    Well, R4 is/was alot more popular, therefore more skins. I'm trying to change that. ;D

    Anywhere there are games
    The skin looks great and can't wait to get my Acekard.... there are so many skins that are really awesome looking. So much better than the M3 touchpod and Sakura skins.

    New theme, akLife, is finished. I'm not really happy with the start menu, though...

    I like the simplicity of the top. Bottom screen is a bit busy due to the overlapping of the brushes imo.

    Well I tried to keep the simplicity of it by making it gray, instead of some other color, but I guess it's still to busy. I was going to just leave it black, but that's to boring.

    @ Dangy: Thanks for the comment on my Skin post - I definitely like the 'ak paint' one - simple but stiking.

    Not too sure about akEq though (too colorful for my liking) but do like the Eq effect when you open the menu
