No, it's not the love metal album by HIM, but a new theme for Beryl! ;)
This project started out as an exercise for drawing shiny mouseover buttons. I ended up liking the results so much, that the mockups soon turned into a real theme. Black and glossy are the keywords here - with a hint of translucency and traffic lights coloured glowing buttons.
DarkLight goes best together with darker graphite coloured themes, but of course you can use it with any widget style you see fit. I do plan on making a hybrid Murrine / Pixmap GTK2 theme to complement the look, but that is going to take a while. A Metacity port is also on the horizon.
Hopefully someone finds this theme usefull... putting it together really was a lot of work. *phew*
