There are a lot of people making blue and grey themes. I wanted to do something a little different. The result is Gilda_K, a theme that's a little metallic looking and somewhat bright but not hard on the eyes.
I am uploading these screenshots (reduced quality to decrease image size) to allow feedback on this theme. It uses a custom color scheme and shown using the SUSE window decorations (which will soon be replaced with a new style of window decorations), and the Thin Keramik style with a lot of configuration options. I'll upload it once it's complete and I figure out the best way to package and deploy the associated files. I just switched to linux about a month ago and I'm still finding my way around.
To answer some questions before they're asked:
1) The upper left text area is the dictionary applet and the upper right text area is the run command applet.
2) The wallpaper is Golden Oddity, created by me and available at skinbase.org.
3) I separated the main panel components into two separate bottom panels.
4) The top panel with the text fields and the upper bottom panel with the clock and quicklaunchers are just normal panels.
