Yep sure, how small and which one do you want ? - Aug 15 2003
Does anybody want any more colour combinations of this wallpaper before I call it a day ? I've done a couple with darker backgrounds that look quite good if anyone is interested ....
- Jul 18 2002
For those who are interested this is how I did it.

2 days ago I installed a copy of Bryce5-demo version. Never having used a 3d package before I was impressed with how easy it was to use.

Anyway, got bored with making nice scenery pictures and thought I'd try something different. Started playing around with metaballs and came up with these pictures after a short while.

The large shape is made up of a number of elipsoid metaballs all flattened and squashed together.
Where the inner parts of the circles are lighter, this was done by playing around with the colours and transparency properties of each metaball.You probably can't see on these pictures but each light circle is the slightly transparent top of a metaball.

I placed a reflective white surface underneath the shapes to give the image some depth. The light actually shines through each metaball and is reflected by the flat white surface.

Anyway, hoped this helped anyone who's interested and gives people confidence to have a go something themselves. If I can do this on my first attempt, imagine what someone with a bit of talent can produce.

mrmunkily asked if it was supposed to imitate the office V.x logo,I can honestly say that it doesn't as I don't even know what V.x is. Perhaps he could post the url so that I could take a look, maybe get some ideas for my next picture !!

Anyway, thanks for the comments, good to know people like my stuff.
If anyone has anymore requests/suggestions then please feel free, but you'd better be quick as my budding artist flair will be coming to an end soon as my Bryce5 30 day trial period will be coming to an end :-(

Anyone recommend a cheap alternative easy to use 3d package?? - Jul 12 2002
Will be adding bigger versions as soon as they finish rendering - takes forever on my machine.
Not sure if it's best to put them in the 1600x1200 section as a seperate zip file or just add them to this zip file, anyone know which is the usual way ?
Like Markus said, it's becoming bit of a 'K' flood at the moment .. - Jul 11 2002

Thanks for the comment. The xmms theme can be found on the gnome art site. I think this is the url to the file:

Thanks, just out of interest, which one do you prefer, the one with plain background or the other one ? - Aug 12 2003
Thanks for the comment, the calendar was part of the basic theme that came with karamba a while back. Not sure if it still included. - Aug 12 2003

Welcome to kde-look, hope you will do many more wallpapers as good as this.

I like how you did the star filled sky, very nice. What did you use to make it ?
The chrome K is really nicely done aswell.

Top piece work, don't be bothered by the lack of comments or votes. People are usually happy to download your work but not usually bothered to comment on it. - Jun 18 2003

Thanks for the comment Damion176, I put the trees there for a laugh when I did the first version (Kitsh Sunset).
I didn't know if people would like this sort of thing as its not the usual Aqua-style.
Looking at my ratings, this seems to be confirmed. Ah well, no pleasing everyone .... I like it, so thats what counts ;-) - May 06 2003

Have you thought about doing a complete icon set in this white crystal-like style ?? ... it would be excellent, much better than the coloured crystal version. - Apr 20 2003

Thanks for all your comments so far.

I was wondering which version of the two wallpapers in the zip file that most people preferred.

The small K or the big K ?

Thanks... - Apr 05 2003
Thanks, that was the kind of look I was trying to achieve. - Apr 04 2003
Hehe..thanks. Its still getting more votes than the Orange version ????

Anyone got any suggestions for different colours ? - or should I leave it and try something new ? - Apr 03 2003

Thanks for the comment...
I've also done a version where the K is clear (glass-like), but looking at what little response this one has had, I don't think many people will want another version.

Perhaps I'll bore everyone anyway ;-) - Apr 02 2003

Just added a new blue-er version - think it looks better than the first one ? - Nov 29 2002
Do just mean the letter K on its own, or with the surrounding bubble ?


Thanks for the feedback. - Nov 29 2002
Used Bryce (I know, I Know) originally for the letter K then moved everything over to Blender once I started getting the hang of things. Still learning ...... - Nov 29 2002
Not too sure what you mean by 'blue colour wash', do you mean that you want the background grey done blue-er or do you want everything to have a kind of blue tint ?
Thanks for the feedback anyway. - Nov 29 2002

Thanks to everyone who left a comment. Don't think I'll be doing anything more with the 'K' - pretty poor rating and all that.

If you look at my 1024x768 versions there's a short explanation on how I did it. - Jul 12 2002
hehe ... was thinking about doing the letter S (for Slackware) or the whole word 'Linux' using the same theme but perhaps the world has seen enough of this already ?? - Jul 11 2002
