I have this image i would like to turn into an orb.

I would like the image to incorporate a little more black/orange as i am running a gateway p-7805u and would like it to match.

ANY help is greatly appreciated!

I have attached what i have been able to do so far.

Thank You!
I made a start on it for you, now maybe Bull can take over for you.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Grim and Generator, with the retail version of Windows 7 out, are you two going to make download links for the Glossy Blue, Black Glass, and Ultimate folders that work on the retail version of Windows 7?

If you do, could you possibly add in icons of zip folders in the Glossy Blue icon pack?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM 7600
make me a start button?

i would like to have a start button that is a dragons eye

open when not hovering over it

when hovered over it id like it to close its eye lids slightly

when clicked id like it to close completly

i would like it to be in darker colors (grey, black, silver, and possibly dark red)

if its possible maybe make me a clock gadget to go with it as well

in any case just make it look as cool as you can, from what ive seen in this forum you guys are pretty good at that.
