New Wallpaper Giving Me Inspirational Blues

Postby Stevo20 » Fri Jul 20, 2007 4:19

OK, I don't get the lasted round of wallpapers/splash screens...

I'm glaring at my screen and it's glaring back, lol. It reads, "when art meets inspiration" ...a perfect credo, on a seductive background, displayed brilliantly in (ta da) Times New Roman font :shock: Huh? Did I miss a post about this? :scratch: ...I don't mean to be critical, but this seems more like "when art concludes in a hurry" or " when art meets a last minute typo" hehehe...sorry. Maybe it's all part of a big plan with a surprise ending, but I'm starting to get scared since Sabayon BE was released with a similar background already.

Keeping my paranoia in mind, I went on a search for FREE FONTS and I threw together a few examples of different fonts in hopes that I might actually inspire "you" (the developers).

Forgive me if it sounds like I'm overstepping my bounds, because I love this distro, none-the-less, here are 3 examples of different fonts on the current wallpaper. (best if viewed in a dark room):

honestly, i didn't like the font on the original wallpaper, but i understand that the devs are much more interested in the near perfect code than how the wallpaper looks.
but hey, you got a point. that's why they have this "artwork and Development suggestions" section. Hopefully, talented users start putting in some input here.

OK, In honor of Wait...What?'s submission(?) I thought it would be fair to add "something" here for comparison purposes. "something" = the stuff I added to these artist's work that bears no resemblance to artwork, lol...I'm just having fun :P

...speaking of fun, maybe someone should put together a POLL with all the various art submissions. Might be interesting.

WOW, these talented artist's works are sure inspirational in nature, I guess if any of them even sparks a new idea for some creative genius in one of the Devs, then they have done their job and we will all benefit from their efforts.

Right on Stevo20, it's great to see all of the creativity going on around here lately!

Stevo20, I like your different takes on the "When art meets inspiration." I too feel that the Times Roman font looks out of place.

As for the S logo and text on the splash screen above, I like it very much too. Keep them coming!

I cant take credit for any of those wallpapers, the respective artists did all the work, I just slapped it on a black canvas and put it to a font...I'm just the postmaster, lol.
