deviantAMP v2By Dj-Designs
2001-11-01 I joined the staff at deviantART to take place as graphics admin and help them out with various things related to the site. My first mission was to redesign DA, and while making it I thought 'why not make a new deviantAMP to release with deviantART v2'. Since it was skinning that got me into the art scene from the beginning and it is what I like to do the most I thought it was pretty obvious that I had to make this skin.
This is also the skin that I put most effort into. The basic shapes was created in 3D Studio Max and imported into photoshop to put it all together and then airbrush like never before. It took some time before I got it the way I wanted, but then again, I have never combined 3dsmax and PS while making a skin before. I'm also pretty new to the airbrush tool so this was quite a learning experience.
I tried to make this skin as detailed as possible without loosing to much functionality. There are button labels and I can see them good enough in my 1600x1200 resolution, so I think you should see them as well, hopefully.
