2 wallpapers for fun!

posted under by Pinheiro | Edit This
So after working for the past days only on icons today I decided to post 2 wallpapers cause there is more to oxygen than icons, much more....
So here they go....
The first one is a wallpaper I worked wen trying to come up with ideas for the media desktop activity in plasma. Works pretty well for media content. 1600x1200



The second one is a colored version of air in more pastel/green tones I can make it in pretty much any color you might want so.... yeah just need to ask.

Hope you guys like it.

P.S. the feedback from last blog post about the ecosystem gave me a lot of ideas that I will probably make a poll for the best ones just after the current poll is dead. so 2 days for cliking those links in the side.

Both are really nice!

The first one looks like my laptop's case decoration =)

cheers!

The second wallpaper is particularly nice. No offence but I was a bit sick of blue by now. Green is a real breath of fresh air. :)

I was gonna say awesome, but then I realized the first one makes my eyes cry on an LCD screen.

See, the contrast transition between the darker lines on the bottom-left portion to the lighter lines on the top-right portion is pretty close to what I see when I look at an LCD screen (typically laptop) from the wrong angle.

As a result, it reflexively want to move to get the better angle... but I can't. Hence the eye-watering... A pity, it looked nice in the scaled-down version, where I hadn't noticed the darker lines.

I wonder how it would be without the contrast switch: have the light lines fade to background instead of becoming darker.

hay nuno! i'll for sure need the first wallpaper for the media center :P keep up the work!

Pinheiro said...

@alessandro Cool :) i will work on it a bit couse its not perfect the lines... not sure... can be beter...

Marco said...

I like both versions very much. Have to install it this evening. Good work.

gp said...

Nuno..you're always the best :))

The first wallpaper can be great, I agree with you about to improve the lines...

The second wallpaper is spectacular...

Fabien said...

the "bad lcd screen angle" symptom described by John is true :\
That's the problem with dark gray gradient.

Pascal said...

How about adding an alpha channel to background number two and letting the user chose the color by setting the background color?
Then everybody gets their own color, no work :-)
And it's a neat feature ;-)

gp said...

Thinking...the first wallpaper with Air (Wallpaper) colors palette can be great :))

Pinheiro said...

@Fabien not that simple I still need to chage 7 gradients :)

Edd said...

You could release Air's SVG source and then anyone with basic knowledge of Inkscape can change the colors. Or have you already? If so, where can I find it?

Anonymous said...

Could you please also release a 1600x1200 version of the second one?

Thanks a lot in advance :)

Pinheiro said...

DanaKil said...

I like the first one very much. Maybe it could be even better with some upstrokes (is this the right word ?!) on the circle's lines.

Anyway, thanks :)

Edd said...

Wow, thanks a lot! Don't worry I'll figure it out :P

bns said...

I would like to see the second wallpaper in rainbow colors ;] like that http://images46.fotosik.pl/114/07c368818837a83d.jpg

Tim said...

First one is awesome, but I have to agree with the other comments - it does look a bit like the LCD is at the wrong angle!

Anonymous said...

I am really proud of you all in the KDE team. You have gotten a lot of tongue lasches during and after the launch of KDE 4.0 but you didn't allow that to distract you and stuck to the plan, a plan that has now materialised.

I am confident that you can blow away OS X. It will not happen overnight but it will. That's thre power of teamwork!
Keep up the powerful work guy and show the world why KDE is the best DE ever!

Hey man,

Lovely work. Unfortunately they look horrible on the sucky LCD monitors at work. But I'm sure they look great at home so I don't care :D

Does anyone else notice that the wallpapers appear to have color banding? In the darker one, it looks like there is banding in the background, in between the thin lines. I'm not sure if that's intentional.

In the airy one with dots, it looks the gradients are smooth and are a bit chunky. Or is it just the jpeg save quality? Is it just me?

I believe all wallpapers like this sort should be saved in PNG. The first one is already in PNG but it seems to have color banding.

Pinheiro said...

@Anonymous yeah you are correct the frist one is somthing i fight alot with and never quite got it to work its the way inskacpe renders the gradient....
the second.... yeah a png would be beter but I suplied the svg source so ;)

zak89 said...

Could you please, please, please make a version of the second wallpaper (the Air one) with the OS X style space colors (purple, black, white)? I'm not a fan of the OS X space wallpaper but I like the colors-though I can't say I don't like the blue...

Nice job by the way. I wish I had some of your talent. What software do you use for these wallpapers?
