I do not have enough knowledge to make the actual skin, but for those that do, I found where you can find all of the original Ice Cream Sandwich keyboard button/key .9.png files! They are in the zip contained in this post
http://www.mydroidworld.com/forums/gala ... icons.html
And here is the Roboto font:

Edit: looking through the images above, I actually can't seem to find the necessary Shift (up arrow) icon, delete, or enter icons... so I am actually not sure anymore =/

Edit2: some more keyboard files can be found here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthr ... ?t=1310925
And I believe I found the symbol keys (return, shift, space, etc) here (in /system/app/LatinIME.apk they end with _holo.png):

Great work! Here's a screenshot

Just a few comments:
-The symbol key (shift, backspace, return) images look a bit blurry... I found a skin of the stock Android keyboard here, perhaps you could ask the OP for permission to use the images (even though I doubt he created them on his own)?
-Also note the key pressed color seen in the thread above, the ICS blue is darker than cyan
-Suggestion bar: It was unbelievably difficult to find screenshots or video footage of people actually using the keyboard on the Nexus S or ICS SDK ports. Here is one video I saw (skip to 1:40). Note the colors of the word suggestions are not white. Actually I am not so sure based on this SDK port footage (skip to 8:40). So, it may be correct as is, just not used to seeing it coming from the GB keyboard.
-The color of the suggested word is a bit light I think, from an ICS theme thread the color I saw being passed around was ff34b4e3

Hehe I didn't even had a look at the real one, to be honest ;-)

regarding blurry pictures, I still have the vectorial shapes I draw, so it's easy to correct (I always draw all these stuff by myself, so I can modify them my way, there is no copyright issue or authorization required). The thing is that I wanted a picture which could fit all screen sizes, so I saved it with only 24px width. I updated the .ZIP with an HDPI folder inside, maybe it will look better on your device ? please let me know ;-)
concerning the suggestion bar, to be honest, if it's not white (according to the video), it might be light gray, or maybe light blue... I can change it, that's not a problem, but I can't know what is the actual color... :-( I'll update my SDK, and then try it in a virtual device.

Wow! Thanks for the fast reply. The symbol images are definitely more clear now. The return key looks just right, but the shift and backspace keys look too large.
Regarding the size of these in addition to the colors of just the suggested word and the pressed keys, this looks like a good resource

This source is not valid for me, since they say it's a mod of the Gingerbread keyboard. (But I really appreciate all the work these guys do ;-)). So I just updated my SDK, took a screenshot, and corrected everything I could on my skin.

It should look very similar to the original one now ;-)

PS : I corrected the pictures size too, let me know if it's better ;-)
