Description:

A quick attempt at an SVG wallpaper using a logo I submitted for the Ubuntu Breezy Badger competition. It should use whatever colors you have chosen for your desktop. The color in the screenshot is just an example.

Love it!

Simple and smooth like ubuntu. Good work. The Badger could be a bit more... rounded? or more monotone even?

Personally, I like wallpapers to have little color variance so that a transparent term on top is as readable as possible.
(Don't get me wrong, it's great, just looking for some constructive criticism)

Hey thanks. You're exactly right regarding the trans terminal. Irony is I used a trans terminal to rid the desktop of the icons (since it has that effect) and took a screenshot that way. I noticed how hard it was to read the second I did it...

I don't like the way the logo works either, as far as using the colors from the desktop. And I'd rather the big paw print was either more subtle or smaller or something. I think I'd like it back to the way it was, with the traditional colors, before I started messing with transparencies. The badger itself I kind of like. She is only white and black, so I guess I'm not understanding the monotone advice. I tried to add some shadows...maybe I should get rid of those?

So yeah, I pretty much uploaded something I'm unsatisfied with. Don't know why. Perhaps just to force me to mess with it more!

Monotone may not be the right word. By monotone, I don't mean lack of color. I mean little variance in the color you pick. Like, if you decide on a brown "theme" it would be nice to tint everything that color.

Upon further investigation, I'm also thinking that the badger is cooler than initially thought. I know a brown tint to a badger is a bit weird, but it might be more usable.

Maybe even a couple color themes? Similar to some other wallpapers I've seen on gnome-look and kde-look? I think it's that good!
