The Archer: a simple-ish wallpaper

Made in GIMP, with the Archer logo resized in Inkscape.  This is my first take on this, so I'm happy to hear suggestions or critiques.  Ideally, I'd like to touch it up and post an updated version. smile

Here it is in 1680x1050, I'm happy to provide other resolutions (bigger or smaller) if needed:

Re: The Archer: a simple-ish wallpaper

The Arch logo is plain and simpel. Plainly and simply aesthetic. I like the gradient in the picture.

One question comes to my mind: Do people really use wallpapers with the logo of their distro?

It's in the first post now -- a bigger file, I had to move it to Dropbox.  I imagine if you have monitors that big you're used to wallpapers with large filesizes. smile

Re: The Archer: a simple-ish wallpaper

Awesome work!
I'd love a 16:10 one (my monitor is 1920x1200) personally, if I can ask smile

EDIT: I fail, 2560x1600 fits the bill.  Sorry!  ^^;

A 4:3 version would be nice, if possible (1280x1024 would be perfect). ^^'
