    Making novice desktop backgrounds.

    K I wanna practice my gimp skills so, if you want, give me a resolution and two colors so I can make a basic abstract background for you.

    note I haven't shopped images yet so if you ask me to import an image I'll try my best, though it might not have come out as good as it could've been.


    edit: though you can give me an image if you want me to put stuff in it, and I'll try my best,

    Go to last page for example of my best

    Re: Making novice desktop backgrounds.

    I'm not really in the market for a new wallpaper, but I would like to have a greenish (gnome 2.22 default style green) wallpaper with something linux/ubuntu related put on it.

    I could make it myself but I don't feel like it.
