    It's simple, but a little plain. Good job, though. [​IMG]

    I can see what you have tried to do with the simplicity of the vector, and the simple

    color scheme and it usually works, but the problem is people want skin they can sit and

    look at and be fascinated by them, to show you what i mean i made a little mock up of

    one of the other routs your skin could have taken to make it more popular and liked,

    [​IMG],

    i have made this purely as a mock up and will not make the rest of the skin but i hope from

    it you can understand what people mean by saying its not there taste,

    (if you would like to use this as a spring board to remake your skin you are more then

    welcome), i hope ive helped [​IMG]

    Not the greatest. I'm sorry. Like it's been said before, it's quite simplistic. Try to use some images from say google.com/images or photobucket or something.

    I'm guessing that you are pretty inexperienced with image manipulation software. I may be wrong but whatever... just so you know, your skills will improve in time.

    Keep it up!

    i think it would be better without the moon
    just a nice simple star field. maybe a little planet?

    I think the main reason for using a moon was for moonshell, at least thats what it looks like XD.

    It's alright, just kinda depressing or something.
    It's too simple. But you did a good job for a beginner. I'm a beginner, I kinda suck too. Check out my earthbounDS skins, you'll understand.

    Hahaha classic!


    Anyways I like that last one the best so far, the textured moon makes it a lot better, but not so sure about the big gray stars.

    The mirrored text is unnecessary. Looks far better from the original.
