#566 [Fedora 28] Wallpaper
Closed: Fixed a month ago by sumantrom. Opened a year ago by sumantrom.

  • Deadline / Release milestone: Is this for a pre-alpha, alpha, or beta Fedora release? What date do you need the artwork by to be able to check it in before the code freeze?
    2018-01-31

  • Default wallpaper
    So since we dont have Alpha this time, it's will be good to have the new
    artwork being added to the compose for testing.


Note there is no pre-alpha nor alpha Fedora release.

The design team selected Emily Duncan as the inspiration for F28's wallpaper. She was a pre-computers programmer, having invented and filed patents on numerous calculators and calculation machines. You can read more about her here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emily_C._Duncan

I was doing some research during the last days, mechanical calculators are a bit hard to visualize, the only thing which comes to my mind are "gears".

How would be we going for an Enigma like theme, which is on the end also a kind of calculator. We could use an simulator like: https://people.physik.hu-berlin.de/~palloks/js/enigma/enigma-u_v20.html or http://enigma.louisedade.co.uk/enigma.html to encrypt some phrases like Fedora 28 and Emily C. Duncan and what else fits. We could feed the encrypted phrases which would be always groups of 5 characters (so who has some idea about it sees what it is) into Blender and render it out with freestyle, so we can get an SVG but with perspective, that should give us a nice pattern. We can complete it then with abstract lines on top (http://www.ellsbury.com/enigma/fig_1-1_enigma.gif) which represent the internal wiring inside Enigma

just a fast shoot to visualize first part of the idea

I played a bit today, experimenting with the electrical wire lines (not 100% happy with) and gears for background to representing "mechanical calculators" the gears has something. I attach the svg in case someone wants to play furthermore

had some time today again to move on, thats the result so far

I think this latest version looks pretty cool! Do you think the lights in the wires could mean something (some cryptic message)?

currently my problem is more the left side, looks a bit boring on that
side - to simple

It seems, my internet is starting working again. So now upload of the latest stage

Some feedback from the triage meeting today:

<mizmo> i like where this is going, i want more texture tho
<sam08> tbh, i find more interesting the gears texture than the wires
<mizmo> yeh i think the thicker wires, are too plain
i dont know if it want texture on them or distrortion or what
i think the gears texture is too flat
i like the sparkly bits in the wires, just think their outlines are too thick / clear
<sam08> it could be an idea adding more layers of either or both wires and textures an blur them as to create some depth of field effect?
<mizmo> yeh i think that would do it

Hi!
So, I created two simple ideas, that you can maybe use as a background, or work with some more. Also the idea behind the first one - 28 is triangular number, so I thought it could be used there in some way.

I took @gnokii 's idea of having data going on wires and did a render doing light 'data' through fiberoptic cables with lots of bokeh :)

This is what I have so far. Does it seem promising? It could be refined further for final but for beta this might be ok?

blender source:

untitled.blend

(I added a color gradient to it, this is the plain, non processed version):

ouch Mo, would not do this, thats similar to a famous video tutorial from Blenderguru aka Andrew Price

@duffy I like the bokeh, the second version rather the first but both are really good.

I like the second version!

I've been playing with this for some more differentiation. Here are some versions (clearly not exhaustive, but hopefully representative) of how we could incorporate the Fedora logo. Typically we don't do this. But maybe we could angle it such that it's not clearly the Fedora logo. Just playing so you can see the capabilities. Heartily appreciate any feedback / ideas for direction here :) Also note these are small, quick, low sample-rate preview renders...

#1

#2

#3

f3.blend

The third one is the most subtle of them all and very pretty!

@mleonova 3 and 9 seem to be the favorites here in the office too! :)

#9 is interesting as well. it is also suitable to produce a time of day wallpaper.

These are fantasic. Downloading the blender files.

here is 9 in 4k, for those who want to test it out

Is there any intent to make multiple versions of this for the Time of Day wallpaper setting in gnome?

Good work .

I vote for f28_4.png (

- is very good and is ergonomic for the human eye

the other do not meet the essential design conditions and ergonomic for the
human eye like wallpaper :

  • the logo like infinite sign is similar with :
    Infinite Flight Global American Airlines
    Infinite Flight Simulator Multiplayer
    Infinite Flight Global Update released - New UI and Global map

  • the blur effect is bad if is on front of users ( can be ergonomic if is
    show on background)

I was not active in the latest discussions and I do not know if there are
other aspects about this wallpaper.

I have problems with :

might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web
