What would you say if we gathered here creative ideas for making qubes os wallpapers? Do you like high tech wallpapers or do you prefer something minimalist like the one I made?
Epic thread idea @sebuq and great work there!

Windows HVM and then ALT+F11 ?
What about an unofficial Qubes mascot? Any suggestions?
Bear in mind I’m an amateur artist. My skills with GIMP and Inkscape are rudimentary. So I decided to start easy by adapting other Linux wallpapers. I came from Manjaro and this was one of my favorites. Everything except the background hemisphere was produced from scratch in Inkscape.

I personally think it would be a neat feature if the Qubes logo itself was saved as a png with transparent background so you could pick the main background color yourself without limiting it to only the default gray
Edit: The point of doing it that way would obviously be to avoid moving random files from the internet into dom0, but upon further research it seems there are already a variety of different qubes logos in /usr/share/backgrounds
I’m still using this own made wallpaper since qubes r3.1 day up to nowadays (r4.1) with i3wm, later with i3-gaps.
Finished the OS-tan at last. Also used sebuq’s wallpaper.
