Yeah Stu.dio I like image 3 best the background colour could be a little stronger. But i feel the thea logo has been changed in that... Nice work Snowy... You've used the artisan plugin?

@stu.dio
option 3 as well, but i would use a dark background and make the coloured reflection part of the shape orange. This way it would completely be in line with the rest of the apps colours. All the colour setting a of the main apps color theme. Go and check apps and their start-up screens all them are in line with the main apps theme. They look awesome bro! much stylish-er than most of apps. Now a soft shade in the back as thea start and we got a killer screen here! :clap:

*EDIT

Sorry couldn't resist myself... did some nice PS work on it. after is posted this :oops:

Maybe it's because you you put "Thearender v1.1" in the splash image. :lol:
If you write v2 maybe it will start before you even click the icon. :crazy:

No for real, I tried to change the splash screen way long back by changing the png file in the. That didn't changed anything than, the splash screen kept the same. So when I made the new splash screen today I wanted to test it again, replaced the standard one by mine. Wham! I really ccouldnt read the splash screen loading items.
