Tornado a new wallpaper I made

Post by samriggs »

Well I had some fun with this one, I wanted to make a wallpaper for my new theme blue space (can be found here ) I love looking watching tornados (except the damage they cause in peole lives of course so I came up with this one in gimpers.
I had to add minty in there and had some fun with the other well you know :lol:
Here it is

It can be found here
I also included a download of it in my theme also, so you can go to either link to get it.
The download includes both 2560x1600 and 1600x1200
I'll make a better tornado wallpaper later one, I just wanted one quick so I had fun in gimpers doing this today.
If anyone wants one with a linux billboard instead instead let me know, I'll quickly make another one with just a linux logo instead.

Thanks
sam

Great wallpaper samriggs. I'd love one with just the Linux billboard to use across distros.

:lol: I was going to have viruses and worms coming out of that windoze sign and things flying around wacking it but thought I better cool it :lol:

Alrighty then I'll make one with a linux logo billboard on it and maybe add a peguin storm chaser in it too :D
Maybe add the words for "stable and free" or something.
Any suggestions will be welcomed.

Thanks exploder.
tdockery heres the one I put together with just the linux logo instead. I didn't add a storm chaser tux in it, thought one tux might be enough. Plus I want to do one with a tux as king arthur (clive owen) where he says in the movie "Pick it up!" except it'll say " Linux Pick it up " while he stands a tombstone of windoze :lol:
Anyhow heres what the linux one looks like

I put this one on the gnome site instead since it has linux on it only.

Enjoy

This is the king arthur tux so far, think the eyes are serious enough for the words, "Linux Pick It Up" ?
:lol: been driving the wife nuts all day with the part in the movie, when the phone rings "PICK IT UP" :lol:
Having fun with this new one, it'll be on her desktop soon as I'm done because thats her favorite part of the movie.
Here be the serious eyeballs

Long way to go on this one yet, adding the beak after the face is done then the hair.

I love it! I'm snagging the Mint version so I have it when I can finally get my deceased comp replaced. I may even use it on my Mint KDE LiveUSBs.

Glad you liked it :)

this new one I'm working on is taking me a bit longer then expected, to much detail I guess, but hopefully it'll turn out good and sort of funny and of course it'll be poking fun at windoze as usual, the penguin will be standing in a windoze graveyard as king arthur (wifes idea) but I want to add a sort of celtic border around it also so it can match any size screen.
Also sorry it took so long to answer I moved and had to wait till the internet got hooked up again.
