Title : Tsubasa
Finished : October 13, 2003

Wow! It's been almost a year to the day since I've started and finished an X skin. I feel so guilty! The source image was so beautiful, I hope I did it justice! A special thanks to Riari for letting me use it. The cross necklace I added to the image myself and originally came from a picture of a bracelet I found online. I'd love to have one myself.

I know when I started this skin I was listening to a lot of new wave music, but upon finishing it I was listening to a lot of Enya and Dead can Dance. As such, I cannot come up with a song title for this skin! So I took the easy way out and named it Tsubasa.

Before I'm Dead
Title : Before I'm Dead
Finished : October 16, 2002

I am immensely proud of this skin at the moment. It was originally going to be named after Depeche Mode's Barrel of a Gun but I decided to save that song for a later Kamui skin. Most of my skins are created in plain old Microsoft Paint, but this one I decided to play around with in Photoshop.

Now to nitpick, I could not do anything I really liked with the position bar and volume buttons. The EQ buttons and bars I have problems with too, but the playlist I adore. So there you have it. The image song is on the Queen of the Damned soundtrack.

First Love
Title : First Love
Finished : September 29, 2002

Named for the Utada Hikaru song, moreover the dance remix of said such song. I have such a love/hate relationship with this skin. It took me over a day and a half of straight almost non-stop computer utilage to finish it, and I hate the playlist. It just doesn't go very well. And it looks crowded! ::sob::

But I love the look on Arashi's face too much, I couldn't give up on it, even though I nearly did 50 times. The Equalizer and Playlist buttons become visible if you turn them off. Shuffle and repeat will become full words when they are turned on. Turned off, they are just an "r" and an "s". I never have shuffle on, so how it came out in the picture I don't know.

I have always wanted to redo this skin, and when a request came along to add a playlist skin to the original, I decided to give it a make-over. Funny thing is, the playlist was the hardest thing to get through. I couldn't get it to look the way I wanted. Then I just grabbed a playlist off an unfinished ArashixSorata skin and greyed that out. Fits quite nice I think. Anyhow, have fun with it.

Gimme Shelter
Title : Gimme Shelter
Finished : July 30, 2000

This skin was originally to be named after porcelain, but after making it, I was listening to MP3's and the Rolling Stones Gimme Shelter just screamed at me. The original picture had the bird's wings stationary, but I blurred them to add a sense of movement and to make Kamui stand out more. A little light, but I hope you like it!
