Request for a custom taskbar

Hi!

Could you do a custom taskbar for me from this pic? It's originally a skin for my Rocketdock, but I want it to be my taskbar.

A taskbar can be tricky to get perfect, I am not an artist but this is what I came up with.
This is with large icons

This is the small icon

Tell me what you think.

if you had a cleaner image i could do it but it is already fairly pixelated and after i do a taskbar would have to pretty much redesign it

I can make that and post it here if are you using the default aero theme if you are using a 3rd party custom theme I cannot change it. It's not cool to change someone else work.

You will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
Or
Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes
A couple more questions do you use your taskbar on just the bottom or do you use it on the top, right, or left also?
And what do you want me to name it?

1. yes I'm using default aero.
2. Only bottomed bar it'll be, I'm sooooo old-schooler.
3. The name would be "NHL Bar"

I've used different styles but only a custom will suit for me.

Here you go after you download the zip extract it and open the folder inside and put the two (1 theme folder and 1.theme file in the screenshot) in
C/Windows/Resources/Themes
It will show up in Personalize as "NHL Bar"
