ah good, thanks.

The ubuntu usplash still isn't ready, but I expect it will follow the same

I agree it needs to be consistent, it's just that for example I do not see
much difference between your second and Luzi's proposal as far as the
colours in the logo are concerned. But the two wallpapers are so distinct
that I'd probably vote based on that instead of the actual colors, I hope I
am making sense and the fact I see no difference does not mean there is none

So what I hoped is we select a colour theme and then various proposals can
be made on what to actually draw using those colors :).
For ex I like luzi's logo and you 2nd wallpaper. however they not being in
the same 'theme' cannot be voted on together ;)
And others seem to be in similar situation
