Ive been reading the manual, searching DeviantArt, try a few skins, modify them to the basics I understand so far and really enjoying it.

Working on skin #3, Its part way finished. Basics are pretty easy, now learning how others do the more intricate items will be even more fun.

Welcome, I know I stayed away from the more complex skins when I first started, then took the plunge. Now I'm at the point of what has not been done.
