Salix OS Leafs Wallpaper

Post by Kristho » 25. Mar 2010, 09:49

Hi!
I critisized the current default wallpaper in another thread, so I felt I had to make an alternative :)

Please give me some suggestions on how to make it better :D

Nice start :)

The font for SalixOS could be the regular one. See => http://www.salixos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1571#p1571

What about having the tree & the font both a bit lighter (and maybe both a bit bigger too) than what it is.

I really like the leaf sort of windy movement, you could try a few more variations on that idea.

It is definitely clean & minimalist, I like that. :)

What really matters is where you are going, not where you come from.

I don't like the distribution name being printed on the wallpaper. The logo is enough in my opinion.

gapan, okay - I'll remove it then - no big deal :)

Thanks for the positive comment in #1 - do you want the leafs to "whirl" more around?

Yes, more whirl. And a bit more contrast. And somehow I don't like the green color as background, it's to much. Perhaps some shading effect to white could help.

Nice, a bit too much green in it for my taste, but it is nice.
The font used does seem a bit out of place, but seems as you are going to remove it anyway,

Good work! :P

I have already tried to shade the green a bit with darker and lighter greens to make - but I can see it's hard to see on some screens - will work with it to make the green more different. Is that what you meant?

ray:
Font will be removed, and I think the logo maybe will be scaled up a bit.
Thanks :D

I have changed a couple of things - made the highlights lighter, removed the text and make the leafs fly further away :)

Nice, but the green is still to heavy on my eyes ;)
