[ubuntu-art] New papers for that wall!

Once more I've played around with some wallpaper ideas. For those wondering
why I'm pumping out these things, it's my own little way of experimenting up
a feel and form in my own head. Each idea directs the next one, and I think
I'm starting to home in on a pretty decent edgy-look.

The first one on
I've named 'glassflower' is my personal favourite so far. It's a
distinct look, and retaining some simplicity while at the same time being
pretty detailed. The reason for it was that I was experimenting with fully
glossy backgrounds, and I just didn't like it as a full background since it
takes too much focus. I usually prefer light abstract colours. But in order
to connect the glossy perspective we wish for Edgy, I created a reflective
center in the middle of the flower pattern. Best of both worlds. :)

Been playing around with the color of the glassblob in the middle, and most
colors look pretty neat, but I settled on a yellowish in order to not break
too much from the background palette. I've upped a 1600x1200 version of it
on my wikipage too, it's linked from the proposalpage.

The second one is too light, ofcourse, but it's a swiveling pattern I was
experimenting with and slapped in a little branding.

Third one is a simple abstract reflective 3D render, which I've layered up
to smooth out from the center out to create a little macro-effect.

I'm also starting to get intrigued by the usplash right now, so I might soon
have some ideas there as well. He who lives shall see.


Ps! Feedback regarding the walls is very useful, even if it's only a
statement on which is your favourite, as it helps me work out what to think
about next time.
