Here are a few pointers. The usplash should have a flat background,
this is the rule. The other thing is that in the index color mode,
images look best when the colors are flat or close to flat. That is
why I toned down the colors in the text logo; just giving enough
highlights to make sure that color banding wont happen. If anyone
wants to see how bad the continuous tone artwork look in index mode
take a look at fedora screen-shots.

The login box. Please take a look at the images in context rather than
in isolation. And when you suggest something articulate it, because
saying like this should be lighter or darker of more blue or more
artistic and so on are quite meaningless.

The idea behind the artworks is to further refine the edgy artworks.
Ubuntu, Kubuntu people are doing the same, as far as I can see. Take a
look at Ubuntu herd4; the wallpaper is very simple almost flat.  We
too should follow similar strategy rather than changing the look and
feel of the distro radically from release to release.
