These are my 3 submissions for the KDE Plasma 6 wallpaper competition.
I wanted to achieve a clean and modern look by having a uncluttered design with a clear foreground-background distinction. I also wanted the design to be more inclusive, so the “Trails” and “Translucent Mirage” wallpapers are available in 10 color variants based on KDE Plasma accent colors, as well as 5 color pallets from the popular Linux distributions, listed under KDE’s website.
All the wallpapers are available in dark/light and vertical/horizontal variants.
All the design were made using Blender and Krita(for making masks) and are released under CC BY-SA 4.0. The .blend files are available if needed.
Trails backgrounds look great! As a suggestion, perhaps consider talking a look at the default accent colours in Plasma as references for variants. Although, it does already seem like the Trails variants do cover all of those at least.
Thanks! I am using those exact accent colors from Plasma, but as the wallpapers are 3d renders and I was trying to achieve my design using a glass material with translucency and light scattering, the colors won’t be rendered exactly as they are. I also tried to get closer results to those colors in renders, but made the “Trails” to look a bit dull.
I’m gonna do some color correcting to see if I get any good results.
I did, but as the lines are using glass-like material, they didn’t look as good. But I’ll definitely give it some more tries to see if I can achieve better results.
Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it.
Thanks for your kind words and your feedback, I really appreciate it.
I did notice the problem for the wide screens after I uploaded them. I want to try to fix them as well as try new colors for the Trails, but it might take some time as I’m a bit occupied with other stuff at the moment.
Trails and Translucent Mirage are fantastic and (imo) would leave it as is
Mount Caustics also looks great, but the purple and blue gradient isn’t as soft as the other two wallpapers. Could you try to do another variant with a smoother transition? Thanks!
