 * WOW! Extremely original, ubuntu-ish, and sets apart from other wallpapers. Maybe if you would remove the semi-transparent Ubuntu logo from it, it would look more consistent. The logo looks a bit out of place there. Or, since the wallpapers usually don't include the codename animal, you should experiment with some random shapes and swirls and stuff in that style. Love your work.
 * I could not agree more strongly that this is an incredible entry. Its hip, current, unique, thematic, and hints at a sense of craft that really defines the open-source movement. Absolutely beautiful work. Compelling, non-corporate but still polished enough to look 'professional', and just what Ubuntu needs right now. EDIT: Lets pretend this image is the 'old iPod commercials' with the solid-color backdrops behind the silhouettes. What this image could use is a little more texture to the background, akin to newer iPod commercials. I'm thinking an organic-looking texture in contrast to the vector art style of the main image -Sumit

Fela Kuti

A Fela Kuti inspired heron.

Concept

Anchor(Palette) Palette This is just an idea for hardy wallpaper, not a theme. The bird is made up with the traditional Ubuntu colors, the background could be anything.

  • The second version is 1680x1050, removed the oval-shadow-blur, and scaled down the bird a bit to fit more of it in. 10/13
  • Great, this should be the main hardy wallpaper -- George12
  • I agree with George12, these backgrounds are amazing! It is such an elegant design and adds more color to Ubuntu. This is my first pick for a new Ubuntu wallpaper. -- Lmessenger DateTime(2007-11-27T01:15:11Z)

  • While I don't see it being a main theme, it is definetly the most beautiful available yet... I think its too involved, the average user wants an undistracting wallpaper However, I would pay good money for a shirt of this. Seriously.
