Re: thinking together artwork to 'Wheezy'

Hi Victor,
I really really like your idea to integrate the Swirl with the musical note. Very well done.

How about a version with a blue palette similiar to Space Fun, just for continuity with the previous Debian Stable?
I think that not changing colors too much is an important point for defining the personality of a distro and for make it immediately recognizable by causal users.
If you think about other distros, Suse is always green, Fedora has always beautiful wallpapers with a similar shade of blue, Ubuntu decide to use sightly variation of the same wallpaper (the purple one) from a LTS version to next one.

IMHO this is an important point for all the submissions.

Best regards,

Marco Milone

Hey Victor,
Great artwork, I especially liked the second wallpaper with the background glow, however I think it can be even better if you can add the underlines and the word debian to it as in the first wallpaper.
So basically what I'm saying is the first wallpaper plus the glow of the second wallpaper.

Hello -desktop,

As I promised some time ago, I managed to bring you a first draft of
some Wheezy artwork, heavily inspired by your own thoughts and ideas
brought up here. This first proposal comes in two flavors, in both 4:3
and 16:9 preview ratio.
First variant is to be found at [1] @1600x900 and [2] @1200x900.
The second and greatly improved variant is located at [3] and [4].

Another wallpaper?
Yes. Because this is the most complex artwork element, and we can derive
all the other elements from it and from its main lines.

The musical note was a pretty good idea, and found its place as a
central point, while not an obvious one. I hope you will come to love it
as I do :-)

I will host the preview images on my company's domain, but maybe I'll
have to make some time tomorrow for creating a wiki page on d.o.

Until then, I am eagerly waiting for your feedback and ideas. Please
send your replies to the list, and let me know what you think of it!
