My initial intention was to merely add a blue tint to some elements of the Momo theme (which itself is a modification to the Modo theme). However, the more I changed, the more I preferred an overall blue-grey theme.
I found the existing blue/blue-grey/grey themes in 2.79 and 2.80 to either be too bright, too dark, too dull, or contrasted in aesthetically unpleasing ways. I wanted something that is soothing on the eyes, legible, softly contrasted, and that doesn’t distract from the modeling elements in the viewport.
Apart from a couple of exceptions, the colour palette I decided to use consists of 24 colours arranged as a gradient on the pattern (R,G,B) = (i,i+10,i+20), where i=0,10,20,30,…,210,220,230. Therefore, the darkest colour is (R,G,B) = (0,10,20), and the brightest colour is (R,G,B) = (230,240,250).
I personally don’t use gradients for my viewport background, but I’m open to suggestions from those of you who do if the current one I have implemented is unsuitable.
There are, undoubtedly, minor areas in the UI that still need to be themed. Those will trickle in over time when I come across them or someone points them out.
Feedback is always welcome.
- TimoShch for his excellent Momo theme that served as the starting point for my theme. I’m not sure how much of his theme remains in mine, though. https://github.com/TimoShch/Momo
