Because no one's (EDIT: OK, one other person *sigh*) made a purple theme before.



I'm looking for thoughts, suggestions, and someone who can do the ThemePark stuff.

But your mockup is very cool. I say go ahead with it... maybe some color variations.

Dig it, dig it, dig it !!! Run with it and don't look back !!! We definitely need more color themes. Please no more brushed metal or white or plain aqua. As far as I have found, there is only one previous Grape Theme so we could use a new one. Happy Hunting !!!
Peace,

So... it looks like I still don't have someone to handle the ThemePark end of things. Also, any suggestions for colour variations? And does anyone know the Japanese (Roman) words for different colours?

wow, that's very 'contrasty'. i think i might have those images burned into my retinas if i used that theme.

the purple seems to be really dark as well. i don't know, it might all blend together better if there wasn't so much contrast, and if the color wasn't so dark.

someone else mentioned cell shaded, you could try some mockups with that style as well. well, just my suggestions.

BlackDog has agreed to help me with this theme. I am still looking for the Japanese words for different colours, though, as naming colour variants may be rather hard without them.

It's more pinkish.

Oh, and just in case anyone asks, I know Somatic has a purple variant, and I had no idea it did until it came out.
