thenktor,
How is it too heavy? Is it just because everything is green, or because it's too light/dark, please try to explain it :)

I think becaue everything is more or less a single color and perhaps a bit to dark, too. It somehow does not look fresh and inviting. :|

Are you using Inkscape? If so, could you post the link to the svg? If you don't mind I'd like to play with it too & experiment with different shade of green & whirls & post them back here.

I like it :)

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

Akuna,
Yeah, I'm using Inkscape. I'll post the *.svg file, but it is on the other computer. :)

I kinda agree with you thenktor,
maybe mixing some other colors for a shading effect or something will make it more interesting :P

I like it !!

Yes, maybe mixing with another color could be good. What about bright white, like on the forum banner ?

Okay Kristho, I see I came to be using Salix well after you even offered this. I really like the appearance though. (Might be that lingering fondness for Linux Mint?) Looks like a well-fitting match to the banner heading this forum as well...

Definitely feeling the swirl :)

Just thought as we have a new flavor on the menu.
Found some Yerba Mate holly leaves might inspire you even more ;)

PS.Incidentally the default wallpaper was one of the things that attracted me,i adore violets,and vivid primary colours,i guess i must still need a ball pit and some big thick crayons ;)
