Intro:

Hi everyone!

I am fairly new to the Osu! community and I would like to share with everyone what I have been working on, pretty much from day 1... This is my first skin and I would like everyone's opinions and such, some of the elements in my skin are inspired by some of the skins I have come across, while others are just re-textures of the new default Osu skin; however, most of the skin elements are made by myself. If you find elements that you feel too closely resemble another's skin, feel free to message me. I will try to contact the owner of the design, or I will replace the design.

The inspiration behind the creation of this skin was centered around ice or glass, with Cirno as the mascot. I tried to keep the play field as neat as possible without throwing too many elements on the field, the goal was to keep the over all feel of the skin as sleek as possible. A side goal I had in mind during the creation of the skin was to keep the skin as minimalistic as possible. Basically, with all the anime character heavy skins, I wanted something lighter with still a decent amount of anime. (Yes, I know Touhou is not an anime)

Inspirational Skins:
- WubWoofWolf's WWWSkin
- HandHeldPillow's Loli Skin
- GraysonnG's Baka Accurate

*note: No elements are directly taken from the skins stated above (except some transparencies)
Speical Thanks to Rainy- for taking the time to make this video!

Thanks everyone for the support so far! I know the skin still has long way to go before it's fully polished, but I appreciate the positive feedback :3

Nice skin kitsumii, players have been using highly minimalistic skins for too long - I think it's time for a shift towards more.. character

Update Time!! v1.09

Because v1.1 is overused, and because (9) is awesome, v1.09 is now released! Spinner meter is now matched to the spinner's colour, score bar background is changed to match the theme better, mod icons have be revamped, and an input counter skin is now active! Feel free to comment/make recommendations on the changes!

I have begun work on the Mania theme, I'm setting a goal for myself to finish it in about... 2 weeks from this post! delayed

Thanks for the continued support! Over 1000+ views! I am amazed and super thankful for all the people who checked out my skin :3 There will be more updates to come!

Another update!!v1.19
So much stuff has changed since the last update, It would be a page and a half listing them all out again ><! (check the changelog) Regarding some changes to the forum post, I streamlined a few things to make the post seem less bulky, and added a more noticeable download button.

You've motivated me to work faster on this project BibleThump/

Regarding the mania skin
I'm not a very good mania player, so I need your guys' opinion on the skin. I made some strawpolls for those who don't like to post on the forums ><. Some questions I have are:

- Should I make extra downloadables that remove guidelines?
- Should I keep the Osu!Mania skin's default colours? (Pink, White, Yellow)
- Are transparent holds hard to read?

* If there's no clear winner, I can make optional downloads for different preferences as well!

Feel free to post any other feedback on the mania or standard skin.

Once again, thank you to everyone who commented, and thanks to everyone for trying out the skin! :3
-Patchouli
Wow! Mania skin looks great, thanks Kitsumii.

About guidelines, I think most of the mania players prefer to play without them, but I may be wrong.
Personally I'm using them only for 7K and 8K.

Thank you! :3

Me and my friend both use full guidelines.. From what I see I really like the idea of using just a few guidelines though, it really reduces the clutter. I guess it doesn't hurt to make optional downloads anyways. I'll include folder with #k.ini s with the .osk for the next update xD. I'm not gonna say when, cause 2 weeks turned into 2 months last time I set a ETA... So; next update coming soon(tm?)
