Dude, that is epic. Send that in as an official wallpaper, you'll get in to the final OS.

Thanks for the kind words @SphereCat1, @xakh!
I doubt it would ever make it into the official wallpaper - it doesnt have the ubuntu "brown" color scheme :)

Wow! Well, as I said before, I agree with everyone. Would you be interested in helping me with themes for my Window manager? Here's the topic if you want to take a look: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=866390.

I really like it, but there's something with the black outline on the logo that isn't working.

You should post this at the Intrepid artwork WIKI

Thanks MadsRH - somehow i also feel the same way - it got worse (i.e. pixelated) when i resized for the various resolutiuons.

Anyways, thanks a lot for your opinion - it was done quite quickly and had been on my desk for a month, before i decided to post it.

Intrepid sounds intimidating :) maybe il refine it a little when im feeling a little creative, throw in a taskbar and widget and then upload it. I appreciate the suggestion :)

I'm going to use this as my Windoze expee background for work :P Has a cool 3d effect that makes my eyes all loopy.

I kinda wish i had a .psd copy of this with the layers in tact. I think I could do something interesting transitioning the logo with the background. It's cool, just a bit too animated. I like it tho, i'm still using it as my windoze backdrop.
