The palette for this concept is based of the colours from the African Savanna (hence the name).

Savanna

How about we try a theme without using gradients and glossy bits. I'm suggesting a theme with mostly flat colours, and using subtle transparency (care of composite-by-default) and shadows to add depth.

Concept

Just thought I'd throw an idea out there. I think the current human theme looks like a brown version of the winXP theme and the glossy, shiny themes have been done to death by Vista and OSX.
