I stuck to a familiar light blue as it’s not only the color I associate most with KDE, it’s also summer here, meaning blue skies and gentle summer Breeze-s.
For something that’s hopefully easier on the eyes at night, I added a hint of purple to the mix, though that’s merely a personal preference. (i love purple)
The wallpapers are in 5120x2880 resolution, widescreen, and… the original PNGs are quite huge because they’re uncompressed.
Since this is my first post I couldn’t upload both of them as separate images, so I put them into one image. I’m happy to (privately) provide a link to my Nextcloud folder containing the original, unedited and uncompressed renders along with my project files.
Please bear in mind though that I was using Cinema 4D and Affinity Photo. If you don’t have access to these programs, I’ll gladly show screenshots of how these projects look instead.
Oh, and if there’s demand, I can also make a vertical variant. I just haven’t made them yet because rendering these takes me over an hour.
Sadly, next to providing the project files themselves, the best I could do is exporting an STL of that 3D model, which could then be opened in Blender for instance. The simple post color correction I made could also be done in GIMP. However the scene also relies on lighting effects and materials from a specific renderer.
That’s why I offered showing the project files opened in said programs instead, as I mostly use proprietary software for my work already.
As much as I do like the entry, I’m afraid it does not meet that requirement as it is now :-/ I really hope that Aron’s advice can work and that you’ll be able to replicate the render on Blender, let me know - with no hurry - if that works!
If you managed to import the whole scene into Blender with Octane, and you can now send us the .blend file if necessary, then that’s good enough for me! It’s not necessary to re-render the wallpaper, we just need to make sure you’re able to provide the scene in an open format, such as Blender’s. Great!
Obviously, I won’t help anyone cheat. The rules do not require the usage of FOSS software, only for the files to be in a open format. My job here is to make sure everyone follows the rules and has a fair chance, I’m not here to say ‘we have enough submissions anyways’.
