Beryllium wallpaper - submit your artwork

Hey, we're getting close to releasing our newest ISOs, and we have themes and walls but not a consensus. Here's a proposal that's gaining some traction...

9GSWUXzt.png

https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic … 62#p118762

John and I agree that the color scheme is sweet but the wall is just a bit... odd?

I'm hoping our forum can help here, break out your GIMP and your Inkscape! Here's the wall as it is...

https://www.deviantart.com/hhhorb/art/B … 1637900752

To be clear, we love the navy background and the colors but we want to lose the shield for something else. Submit your proposals, if we use yours we'll give you full credit, of course.

Here's the BL flame/text logo, for convenience, though it certainly isn't required for a wall to be considered...

https://github.com/BunsenLabs/bunsen-im … -flame.svg

Thanks, everyone!

Re: Beryllium wallpaper - submit your artwork

Sorry, isn't it a little too close to :

Debian Bullseye Wall

homeworld_desktop.th.png

I mean, it doesn't matter. :-) There is no perfect desktop,
especially for this crowd, it's gunna get tweaked. Just put
some clothes on it and send it out the door. smile smile

respectfully,

Re: Beryllium wallpaper - submit your artwork

How about shipping a plain one-colour wallpaper image (same colour as Debian Bullseye) with no decorations at all? (Could be a small tiled image for that matter.)
But keep the theming, colour schemes etc as in @hhh's post.

Or... a rather small BL flame somewhere unobtrusive?

Re: Beryllium wallpaper - submit your artwork

I think it would be  a shame to lose the #! flavor.  One of the things I like best about BL is its minimalist look and consistency.  Debian's look is fine but it does not enhance the BL brand.  (just another personal, unwarranted opinion)

FWIW I use tools like the following to generate color palettes.... There are bunches of them around:

I third that. Those are in keeping with the simplicity of the older BL themes so these 2 are good candidates in my opinion as I like the dark blue for a dark theme and maybe why not a lighter blue for a light theme?

Re: Beryllium wallpaper - submit your artwork

FWIW I liked the simplicity of the flame-only logo:
https://www.deviantart.com/hhhorb/art/B … 1638039783

Another vague idea - don't know if it's realistic or not, but what if that flame was a conky, like the BL-Button conky, on top of a plain wallpaper?

This is the current Button:
ASl5bSsm.png
Then users could move it around to fit their desktop. Or remove it from the conky session.

Re: Beryllium wallpaper - submit your artwork

My artistic skills and good taste is maybe not of the most sophisticated, but want to chime in and just give  my opinion on this matter.

Yes @hhh you nailed it. Specially as @johnraff pointed out with the flame-only logo. If that one works well with the theme(s) that I want to use it would be a keeper for me. I prefer solid unobtrusive backgrounds, and for the record, I am slowly moving away from the b/g perspective lately.

Re: Beryllium wallpaper - submit your artwork

^I like @johnraff's idea of using a flame conky to create the background image of [beryllium].

Since everything is in the archives, that's not a problem.  wink
BTW, this is the way to the "Hexentanzplatz" in the Harz, a German low mountain range.  cool

5FaFvwTt.jpgxO8UXMLt.jpg0zT4MXMt.jpgdQaFcN5t.jpg

Creating a suitable background image is no problem with this site if you want it "plain and monochrome."   smile

Re: Beryllium wallpaper - submit your artwork

@unklar, nm. I got impatient so I created a tile from your scrot...

7T2gD29t.png

We're playing with fire, now...

https://www.deviantart.com/hhhorb/art/B … 1638122046

Gaa! Maybe I messed up the tile, or maybe it's just the texture, but this creates a bad optical effect. Every time my eye's shift I'm seeing pixels on the conky and logo. Either that or the drugs are finally kicking in. I'm going to close the laptop and get some fresh air.
