Here’s the 9th in the B# Hybrid series and the 3rd in the current stylistic mold of black base with raised glass dials and user selected accent colors. #10 is going in a different direction.
This one also has something not typical to B# faces… non-gear related animation! I’m calling this a Tri-Mode Space Portal Display Mode 1 is just an open view into the portal, Mode 2 is the activity tracking display and Mode 3 is the weather display. The remaining 3 dials are assigned to digital and analog time, and battery meter.
There’s also a nice lume for AOD.
I actually completed # 7,8, and 9 all around the same time in early June so I’ve had a chance to wear them all for a while, and this one though maybe not my usual style is still my favorite of the three.

Smart watch faces for watch lovers!
Very nice. Like the drop shadow used to create the raised elements, and inner shadow for the recessed graphics! Might give that a go myself…, top work as always. Cheers. Rich
Very nice work as always kvansant, I like the 3D look to it, especially how the 3 smaller dials seem to float over the larger one…excellent
thanks Rich, I’ve been kind of obsessed with glass dials and shadows. It’s just a fun thing to play around with in PS.
thanks! they are floating aren’t they… maybe I should have put some mounts on them. But I guess if I can have a Tri-Mode Space Portal I can have magically suspended glass dials
Hm, now I decided I need to finaly learn how to make this kind of glow
I think the effect is brilliant, whether intended or not, but yes, as Rich said, it’s an excellent illustration on the correct way to use shadows…bravo Sir
you mean the lume? I do it 100% through the tools in the PS layer styles (that’s where I do almost all my graphics detailing). But you can also do it using a duplicate layer and gaussian blur as a starting point.
Very nice, I like the combination of the “empty” part (when it’s in Mode 1) and the dials/info bits.
Also some nice color variations, and the background works really well, drawing the focus to the portal part.
thanks Mattie! that’s my favorite mode too
@kvansant absolute beauty with perfection. As always neat and clean.
