    Dark!

    Dark, high-contrast things seem to be a taboo in nearly every graphics community, but hey, I love it. What can I say?

    I was messing around in the development version of GIMP bug hunting, and I got this. I loved how it looked so much, I decided to save it.

    Clicky

    It's a low-skill wallpaper, yes, but it still rocks. Haven't come up with a name for it, maybe "Penguin on the Edge of Forever"?

    Nah...

    I know about the whole deal with "Your brain is programmed to ignore the whitespace!" about dark, high-contrast stuff, but seriously, why do so many people seem to have a downright hate for it?

    Suggest/Discuss

    I also have the xcf, if anybody would care to want it.

    (Also, if I'm breaking any rules, lemme know. I'm still a newbie around here, and I didn't see any rules topic stickied for this section.)

    It looks pretty good, but it's a AWFUL wallpaper for one reason; the Tux is blurry and makes my head hurt. You really shouldn't use that wallpaper for long or you'll need (new?) glasses soon.

    I realized that, but when I tried to sharpen it the results looked awful. In the end I decided that the slight blur looked better.

    (Sharpened version for anyone curious)

    This looks like Tux is playing Nethack.

    I really would like the xfc version of this.
