Hi there,
I made an open source theme for R4i / Wood. It's on github. Feel free to use it however you want. It's completely free of any copyright loaded content. And it's a perfect way for you to make your own theme. All source files (mainly SVG) included.

PS: I posted this in the SuperCard section as well, not because I want to spam, but so users can find the correct skin for their card.

Cheers,
Gemliu

Wood R4:
The skin is awesome, I did see some messy issues though with the start menu, the highlight bar for the options isn't flush with option boxes at all. I tried messing with the skin myself and I was able to fix the options a little better, the only issue is the highlight bar still wasn't aligned with the option boxes. I recommend you redo the start menu option image entirely so this issue is no longer a problem. Another issue I found was that the R4i Gold 3DS RTS and Plus models have a Wood R4 kernel with an extra menu option "3DS Setup" so the options definitely don't fit on the screen well with the skin.

DSTWO:
The DSTWO skin is really good, however I didn't like the idea of adding the icon boxes to the lower_screen.bmp. It has nothing to do with the looks at all (it looks awesome), the problem is not everyone wants their games arranged in that specific way, I myself prefer having mine organized like the Acekard with the icons and game names. I recommend a redesign of the lower_screen.bmp so it is able to be used for any type of arrangement settings.

YSmenu:
YSMenu skin looks good as is.

Overall the skins are amazing! Keep up the great work!

My small request:
I would like to see you do some stuff for the CycloDS kernel, everything in that uses 24 bit depth so it definitely would be an interesting thing to see. There isn't much to making a CycloDS skin.
