Default "Eye Candy" theme - an attempt to make Reaper look kawaii.

The reaper theme stash is sorely lacking in the cute department.
Here's a WIP of a theme I'm working on to fix this dilemma.
Didn't want to do any harm to the default theme file so to play it safe I used a usertheme "Inquasar Dark Matter."
Here are some screenshots:





A splash, might do more.



Imagine doing some brutal death metal on this...

What do you guys think?

Edit: a beta version of this theme is available. Bear with me, I'm still new to this.

Are the fadercaps heart-shaped?

I wonder who this is intended for. Not appealing at all.

Simply too awesome for words! The suggested heart shaped fader caps and splash screen would just completely take it over the top! LOL

Nope, they will be candy assuming I don't fuck this up.

There may be more splashes.

The other comments imply otherwise. To each their own ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Maybe an alt version with heart faders if that idea is that popular haha.

I wonder where do you learn your manner from. Not pleasant at all.

Well shrugged sir. Some guy had a value-less thought and decided it needed to be on the internet. The true error would be for you, or anyone else, to give a damn.

Thanks. I was close to saying "I'm glad you like it!"

Seriously. I have little ones that like to come in while I'm working on a session and press all the controller keys. Something like this will push them over the edge.

It's an interesting concept and easy on the eyes.

1) I would never use this in a million years

2) I am thrilled that it exists and I heartily and unironically congratulate you on your aplomb!

The Comic Sans font on some of the buttons puts it right over the edge. Good job.

When you stare at your daw for hours at a time, its good to at least look at something aesthetically pleasing. Feel free to enjoy whatever theme you like.

Beta in a few days. Some things won't look quite right, and I lack UI design experience. Only been using Reaper for a little less than a month. It'll be a while before a final.

It does, doesn't it? Thank you.
Meaninglessly wanting to clarify that this font is actually SF Cartoonist's Hand. However, they look somewhat similar so the comparison makes sense.
Still may not be final font decision, but the beauty of Reaper is power to the user so its not like anyone is stuck with that font.

This theme makes my eyes bleed. In a happy way.

I especially enjoy how the MIDI clips in the Track section look more like 8-bit game graphics than in any other theme.

Keep up the good work!
