Post Mageia Linux wallpaper, I made it myself...


Hello friends, here I have a nice Mageia Linux wallpaper that I made myself 3 days ago and I wanted to share it with you all, you can comment what you feel about it, no matter what it is I agree with you if you say "it's not too pro" for examle, I know it's super easy to recreate but is a good wallpaper that has to do with the logo and name of Mageia.
Finally I hope you like it and that you will enjoy it..

Cool, I like what you did with the fonts and the overall color scheme. Did you make it from scratch or start with a premade background?

Thank you for the comment and I am glad you liked it.
You'll see, when you open firefox with Mageia you see the logo and name for the first few seconds and then you are redirected to Mageia's web site, well I took a screenshot to the logo and name that appear at those few first seconds and saved it to my computer, then I deleted all of the background color to leave just the text and icon over a background with "alpha color" or whatever it is (I made it with gimp), and the final background it has now, came from the gradients tool, then I used two or three different gradients and I worked every single gradient in one separated layer and the text/logo and it's reflection as well.

It looks nice overall…the only complaint I have about it is that the gradient in the upper-right is a little too obviously square. An idea would be to perhaps "bend in" the "sides" of the square so that it looks more "starburst"-y. I dunno; I'm not exactly a pro graphic artist.

Thank you MrCode for your answer I'll keep that in mind for my next work, I'm thinking on doing something else with the same "theme" and upload it right here.

Not bad at all!

A bigger resolutions (1920x1200) would be nice
