Same as before, but with a different (custom) background created using GIMP's color picker (copied and pasted by color) used to fuse two default images together.

LOL, I guess I took "home made wallpaper" too seriously.

I barely know how to use GIMP, too, but I know enough to do simple little hackjobs like this. *braces for impact from major public embarassment *

As clean as that may seem at first glance, there are three flaws: 1) the rays' extensions have no antialiasing (), 2) the squirrel's tail is cut off (couldn't be helped...it was a crop, and the original image didn't include his whole tail ), and 3) one of the rays overlaps his tail (didn't want to brush around it and make that part of the image look ugly ).

(For those wondering about the "rendered with linux :D" thing, take a look here; read towards the bottom of the section. )

Been there, done that. I just wish the music industry could do the same. There's all the tools needed for that industry in Linux, too (just see what Ardour and Audacity can do)!

It would be also easier for music industry leaders to sell their music in Ogg Vorbis format if they went Linux.

It's not easy using blender, I've tried learning it, but I don't think I can do it. The problem is that they put way too many tabs in there, way too many options. It's way too complicated, the only way people can learn such things is to keep using them that way they memorize where the various obscure options are.

I much prefer inkscape, you can make cool things with it, and much easier that GIMP or blender.

As for wallpaper, I prefer landscapes (real ones, not fake). Outside I can see only ugly houses ... at least on my monitor there is something better.

Thanks leopard. I like to keep things fairly simple.

The other neat thing about Inkscape is that your images are seamlessly scalable...vector graphics FTW!

Just thought I'd post a screenie of my new Arch install on my ex-Ubuntu machine.

It's exactly the same as my lappy's, save for the window border colors, Terminal background, and desktop background.

EDIT: This is with Compiz enabled. Compiz is strictly optional on this machine, and it normally defaults to xfwm4 compositing instead of hardware. It also boots to runlevel 3 by default and has no GUI login manager, so even X is optional.
