Re: Early impressions of Default artwork

My first question is one of theme design. In my mind I view a theme as a
story board. The images are linked, but they are different. Your
approach seems to be one of image re-use. I noticed the wallpaper image
is the same as the gdm login background. The balloon behind the clouds
image is used in many of the screens. In FC6 I saw the same scenario and
I assumed it was because of the time constraint.

I would guess this was intentional, your idea of a story board is somewhat original, I don't think I saw it in another operating system. Original does not meant bad, it may be a good idea.

Until I can test the GRUB images I always worry about quality. IMO the
FC6 grub image does not display well (very grainy) and my submission was
an attempt to minimize this. There is also the issue of black screen,
blue screen, black screen, blue screen. IMO the current boot process
looks choppy as a result.

Open the PNG with GIMP, save as xpm.gz, test it and tell us if is too grainy or not :p

Personally I would like the GRUB image to have the same blue as the rest of the graphics (the blue background of RHGB) . I understand it can't be identical due to technical constraints (14 colors), but it may be as close as possible.

The first boot screen looks very similar to the FC6 screen. I was hoping
for something different as I believe this screen dates back a few
versions. In addition, how do you feel about adding "echo" icons to your
submission?

Indeed, this is a must *if* Echo will be the default icon set, but this was decided or is still up to discuss?

I noted there is no optional artwork. I assume the decision has been
made to exclude the splash screen of gimp, open office, gdm, kde, and
the screen save unlock.

IIRC, the overall opinion was to leave those unmodified.
