Laptop for Solus home page

Sun May 14, 2017 9:47 am

I don't want to step on any toes with this, nor do I want to take away from what has already been done, but i was teaching myself how to use Inkscape and thought I'd take a stab at drawing an alternative laptop for the home page of the Solus website.

It's not finished. Most obviously it is lacking a screenshot of a Solus desktop, but there are a couple other things I plan to work through. If there is any interest in using this on the site, I'll finish it up. If not, no big loss. Just let me know.

(Hey Mods, I probably should have posted this in the Artwork category. Any chance you can move this?)

Maybe, I guess it depends on the style you're after. Doesn't sound like this is the direction they wanted to go. I put it out there not realizing that a community member had put in some hours on the last one, so I'm a little embarrassed to draw the comparisons. Last thing I want to do is marginalize someone's contribution. I'm glad people are pitching in.

I just don't like the current version. It looks weird...

Yes, but they decided not to run with this. Someone had already contributed the prior artwork. It did stoke some interest in working on some graphics for the installer and software center. That's where my attention is now.
