Many people make requests for start orbs here, it's no problem at all...

The GIF you posted didn't want to resize too nicely, so I went looking for another image to use... Trying to duplicate the blue glow effect on such a small image was a bit tricky, but I think it came out reasonably well.

You happy with this one? Just let me know if you want to change anything on it, it feels like it's missing something, but I'm not quite sure what it is...

No problem Arc... The colour in yours came out better than mine anyway! Looks pretty awesome..

This is starting to remind me of the sig and avatar thread. One person requests something, and an hour later there are four for them to choose from. Lol.. I like it.

sweet! thanks a lot guys!

@ Zalith, I really like the outline idea, the whole point of the theme is to be minimal. (get it?) the blue fits really nicely with everything else in my theme as well.

thanks to you too arc!

Hehe... Minimal may as well be my middle name (it's close, also starts with an 'M'). I'd post my desktops more often in the desktop screenies thread, but it's never anything more than a picture and a thin line at the bottom left over from the hidden taskbar...

Anyways, glad you like it.. Let us know if you want more.

Svnlver, just an observation, but the orb seems to have picked up a bit of a rough edge there... The alpha channel has a hard edge around it.

Sorry bout that i did the button late last night i was tired.I know what i did wrong.I took original image then deleted the black background but as you can tell on hover state part of the background was still there.So when i applied alpha channel it was for the background part as well.
