[solved ]What did you use to make the Mint wallpaper?

Postby batteriesInc on Sat Dec 22, 2012 4:11 pm

Hi all,

I would appreciate it if someone could tell me how the Mint wallpaper was made. I rather like it, and would like to know more about the method by which this was made and how I could do stuff like this myself. I use Linux in a number of varieties as well as OSX, but am very much not a graphics designer so please keep it where possible in English :). I would appreciate pointers at where I could learn about this myself.

Thank you very much in advance!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

My guess is Blender. I haven't used Blender much myself as I'm actually learning Autodesk3DS Max and their environments are a little jarring. Though I often prefer GIMP over Photoshop depending on the task. Once I have a bit more confidence in Max I'll play around in Blender more.

I figured it was something like Blender, I was hoping to find a source file to tinker with (Blender is a tad intimidating if you've never been near this sort of software :) ). I think I'll do something I haven't done in 20 years: cross post. In the wallpaper forum.

Thnx!

The wallpaper was made by a person named or nicknamed Gelsan but there is no such user on the forum, so I don't know how you could contact him (his forum username is probably different).

Feel free to correct me if I'm trying to write in Spanish, French or German.

Hmm, now that *is* helpful.

Thank you, or (given your location) "dankjewel" :)
