I've made a new wallpaper with my favorate distro's logo ;)

This is a 640x480 preview:

You can also find 1024x768, 1152x864 and 1280x1024 versions.

Pretty good... how did you make it? Only one observation... the leg of the 'g' looks
a little out of proportion. Just a tad too long.

You should know, as you're using it as your avatar ;) I'll fix it and post updates here (hopefully tomorrow I need some sleep now, it's 4am).

OK, fixed the proportion if the leg, it is shorter now.

The preview image and the links from the 1st post on this thread point to the fixed version.

I'm glad you like it :)

I'm in the process of making another one.

Question to moderators/gentoo.org site admins:

Where can we annonce new Gentoo graphics (is Desktop forum ok) :?:

It'll be cool if some section in graphics at gentoo.org will be dedicated to wallpapers and other graphics uploads (or placed there by the admins).

cheers

Thanks for the 1600x1200 version, looks great! I actually run it (with KDE 3.0.1) with Hue Shift Blending (Background settings->Advanced->Blending)....looks nice with a spash of green...but otherwise it rocks...

Looks great, and I think the emerge output overlay is so subtle no one else noticed it. Nice work. ;)

So you've noticed, cool :)

I wanted it to be subtle as IMHO text on wallpapers make them unusable and hard on the eyes but wanted to include the essence of Gentoo in the wallpaper.

I'm glad someone spotted it 8)

Warning: Me being touchy :(

What :?: To start with, I'm way far behind my childhood days (started my 4th decade).

The wallpaper (this and the other one submitted at the forums) are made by myself (including reverse engineering the logo with bezier curves) :!:

C'mon you're joking, aren't you :?:

Yes, the ISP is heaving some problems there :(

I wish for some place (gentoo.org :?:) those images could be uploaded to.
