Re: Fedora-art-list Digest, Vol 36, Issue 6



Just a quick unrelated question. Is it too early to suggest ideas for fedora12?
I have also done an animation course, is there anyway that I could help out with this? Or any other design projects I could help with?

I think we can go with one of those for beta, my option would be for on
*with* a temple (Betamockup1_wide_right.png).

There are a few things I am not happy about, like the grass not being
green enough and the sky being more cyan than blue, but there is time
for those after the Beta.

It started out a lot more green & cyan (see Mola's original mockup,
bottom here: http://mola.fedorapeople.org/gimp/view/)

But trying that as a wallpaper, it was way too intense and contrasty /
distracting for a wallpaper. :(

Hi Mo,

I've put them to a rpm package [1]. I'll submit it for inclusion in
fedora later if you find it good.

I know Mola's images, we talked about them on IRC before he mailed to
the list.

> But trying that as a wallpaper, it was way too intense and contrasty /

You are right, Mola's colors are too saturated and won't work for an
usable desktop (and also don't look very natural either).

I tried a quick trick starting from one of Mola's images (attached):
decreased the saturation and increased the lightness a bit, the colors
are closer to what I have in mind (but I should have applied the
lightness/saturation operation separately to the grass and sky).

The hard reality is an wallpaper like this will be inevitably compared
with the default Windows XP wallpaper, which had set a standard in
people's minds: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Windows_XP_SP3.png

But as I said in my previous mail, those are small details we can worry
about post-beta.
