Black Light V2

Did you include "Try a new Blender theme" in your New Years resolutions? You're in luck! Here's a new and improved version of my old Black Light theme. Now with 100% more orange.

(Honest disclaimer: I've been using this theme for a while so it's not really new 🙂 )

  • No longer makes the mesh fully black on edit mode
  • Bigger vertex size in edit mode (much easier to select!)
  • Buttons are flatter now
  • Panel headers have more distinct backgrounds now to separate things better
  • Darker background in 3D view
  • Selections are now orange-yellow
  • Much better colors in the dopesheet (the channel name is now readable)
  • Empties are yellow colored to make them easier to spot
  • More contrasting colors for nodes and frames
