Simple abstract wallpaper

Hi Everyone, :wink:

I was a little hesitant at first to post this, because this is based off of somebody else’s work, and for the life of me, I forgot from what website I got it ─ it was one of the hundreds if not thousands of wallpaper sites on the internet ─ not to mention that I don’t even know the name of the artist who created the original.

I am not going to post the original ─ I don’t know whether I have the permission to do so ─ but I’ll just say that the original was in turquoise colors, with a dark grey textured area. And it looked nice ─ quite Manjaro-like, even ─ but I was thinking that it would look better if it were blue, and so I started modifying it in GIMP, and this is the result. :wink:

Below are a couple of screenshots of how it looks against a Konsole window and a Dolphin window on my Plasma desktop… :arrow_down:

And here’s the wallpaper itself ─ it is 1920 by 1080 pixels. Hope you like it. :slight_smile:

I’ve just seen that the embedded image is only 960 x 540 pixels, so here’s the link to the 1920 x 1080 version. :wink:

It’s a nice clean wallpaper. And I like it. :ok_hand:

I can only take credit for the colors, though. The design was someone else’s. :man_shrugging:

Ah, I found the site with the original ─ here it is. :wink:

“I can only take credit for the colors”

The colors are the only thing that matters :wink:

I’ve uploaded it to Telegram in a PM with you as an .svg ─ it’s 1.5 MiB in size. :wink:

My test is : 5ko !

only a speed test with bad colors

EDIT: bad shadows with kde ???

I have no idea what that means, but from the looks of it, you have not checked your Telegram window yet. I sent the file to you there as an SVG. :wink:
