An Art/Wallpaper Challenge? A bit of Minty Nautilus.

Postby lotharjade » Sat Jan 07, 2012 9:41 am

I am not sure if this is the right spot to post, but here goes.

In the Mint Cafe area user npap made a side comment/joke about how you shouldn't install a real live Nautilus onto your Linux Mint computer (you should install the software). After reading I got a good chuckle about that visualization, but then I got to thinking. What would that really look like?? Specifically, what would an artists (possibly humorous) visualization of that look like? Would it look like a Nautilus clinging to the side of the computer? Would it be oozing through it? Would it be like a fish swimming in a fish tank on the monitor? Is it infused, or is it a cross blend of animal and technology? Maybe it is even some sort of computer component. Quite a few ways you could go with this.

SO... The ART/WALLPAPER challenge is to do just that. Create an artistic wallpaper that has what your view of a real live Nautilus would look like installed, incorporated, and/or infused with a Linux Mint computer. Just for fun. Post here in Wallpapers when done. :mrgreen:
Have you tried turning it off and on again, then hitting it repeatedly? :/

I saw your post about this in the Mint Cafe and went strait to the art section to see if you would really do it!

I don't think I'll enter this one(I'm a bit busy at the moment :| ); but if I get a chance I'll try it.

I'd love to see how this one ends! :D
