For those of you who liked the animal skins, here are the final high-resolution images:
I've created both "academic" 4:3 versions (2048x1536) and widescreen 16:10 versions (2560x1600) If you're going to use it I strongly recommend that you resize the wallpaper to its final size using your preferred program or Imagemagick.

I really like the idea of having the same wallpaper in different colours. This would be perfect to brand Ubuntu's official desktop environments:
- In my opinion the logo should go to the right, since the left side is usually the default location for desktop icons. -- Vexorian
You are right, I didn't think of that. I was just looking for an appropriate part of the image to put them. Maybe someone else with better graphic skills can enhance the idea. --NickBauermeister 2015-03-03 20:44:02
What about placing the logo in the bottom right? Instead of just darkening the area, it would be interesting to see it chiseled in, sort of like branding effect on leather. -- Spr0k3t

- Both, Vexorian and :Spr0k3t, sugested the move the logo to the right side. I agree and made my own version of Lion Claar with a bigger logo in the bottom right corner.
- I liked the final look and made a few more stuff with lion claar as base:
You can find all this stuff here
