I can't really put my finger on it, but it's something that draws my attention to it all the time.

You're absolutely right, I noticed the same thing as soon as the rendering had finished. However, the rendering time for this scene is pretty long, so I knew I wouldn't have time last night to adjust the scene and re-render. I figured I would post it in its current state so people could comment and then I could take a second stab at it tonight.

Actually, what you're seeing is straight out of the renderer - I didn't do any post-processing (apart from adding the logo). The angle of the camera and the position of the front leaf makes it look flat, but it's 3D like the others. The reason the front ball is sharp is because that's where I 'focused' the camera, the rest are blurry due to the Depth of Field effect I applied. I think I'll dial down this effect a little when I render the scene again tonight.

Looks more integrated now, but how about moving the center leaf up about a centimeter or so... :?: :idea:

These are all amazing! I love the new logo! BEAUTIFUL, elegant, simple, but oh so classy. And the wallpapers are great too. Nothing but compliments here. I hope to see a few of these on LM 6 official release :)

What program did you use to render that scene, Jernau? It looks amazing!

I understand why you think that will look better, and maybe you're right. However, the reason the leaf appears below center is because of the camera angle (if the camera was lowered to horizontal then the leaf would appear to be in the middle of the ball.)

Thanks Sarah. :)

Could you please make this wallpaper with pure white background colour as well? Really loved it(!), but black is to dark colour for long time use for me :(

It's great to see one of my wallpapers 'in the wild'! :)

Are the orange borders a design choice, or do you have it like that due to the lack of a normal aspect ratio version of the wallpaper?

Thanks. :D

timh wrote:...and where I can get the Grub Screen you did?

Unfortunately, that was just an example to show the new logo in action (and not an actual grub screen). Though, perhaps someone who's good at making grub screens might do something with it?

anotheruser wrote:Could you please make this wallpaper with pure white background colour as well? Really loved it(!), but black is to dark colour for long time use for me :(

That wallpaper was rendered, so changing the background colour to white might be tricky. However, if I get a second I'll have a play and see what I can come up with. :)

Yes, only black is to dark for me to work with, the orange makes me awake :lol:

I've created a square version of the new logo, for use when the full length logo won't fit (or for when a square logo just looks better).
[Large version (1300x1300)] [Small version (90x90)]

This is how the current Linux Mint logo looks on DistroWatch:
