Fedora 10 Artwork Round 2 Deadline

Hi folks,

The deadline for round 2 of the Fedora 10 artwork process is 1 September 2008.
Work done for round 2 must be associated with one of the concepts that were proposed in round 1.

If you’d like your favorite F10 theme proposal to make it through round 3, you must have the following 4 pieces of artwork completed and uploaded to your proposal’s wiki page:

  • At least 1 wallpaper draft design
  • At least 1 vertically-long piece of supporting artwork (for example, a draft firstboot graphic)
  • At least 1 horizontally-long piece of supporting artwork (for example, a draft anaconda banner graphic)
  • At least 1 square-ish piece of artwork (for example, the gnome splash or the firstboot/anaconda splashes)

Not sure what theme proposals are available to work on or want to learn more about how our artwork process works? Check out:


This is a great opportunity to get artwork you worked on in a very popular Linux distro! So let’s get moving!! 🙂

  1. I think it may be a summer syndrome that people are so quiet with theme development: the activity on all mailing list where I am subscribed is low, the number of post on various planets is low… like everyone is in vacancy or like the heat sucked the energy from everybody (me included).

    Or maybe your Gears graphics are that good that no one want/think have a chance to compete with them.

  2. Solar

    I want Solar or INVINXBLE as the default wallpaper, if not they should be offered as alternatives. I ought to mention that there was purposed wallpaper that was — to my tastes — better than the default, how do I use it?

      To change your wallpaper, you right-click your desktop and choose “change desktop background” from the menu. If you would like to add a wallpaper that is not in the dialog, you may simply drag and drop it into the wallpaper selection dialog or you can use the filechooser to select it from your hard drive.

      If you’d like Solar or INVINXBLE, you can help boost them by working on them.

  3. Thanks for the open process

    Thanks guys for having an open process for artwork… sadly… I never progressed beyond crayons, but I liked the blueprint to reality themes posted earlier
