Is it sexy?

I'm probably better known for my "Tux" series of wallpapers over at gnomelook.org and xfce-look.org, but if I'm honest, when I think of Arch I don't think "cutesy", I think "Sexy and shiny". So here is my take on sexy and shiny. Two versions, one with hair, and one without, because I honestly can't make up my mind between the two.

Hope you like them.

Re: Is it sexy?

Roken:

Those pictures, albeit nice, are outside of our policy regarding the size of the pictures.  I personally don't enforce the pixel count; I do worry about the total byte count in because many of our members are on slow or expensive links.  On the other hand, this is a post in an Artwork and Screenshots subfourm.  Regardless, it is better if you create a url link with an img tag that points to a thumbnail inside the URL.  Like this:

[url=linkToReallyBig.jpg][img]linkToTheThumbnail[/img][/url]

You might want to edit your post. Thanks.

Re: Is it sexy?

The shown images are both remotely hosted on my own webspace and are reduced resolution versions (previously at 640x360 - 256K file size. - already linked to as you described) I assumed that the restrictions as shown in policy related to hosted rather than remote images. However, I've simply reduced the size of the remote thumbs to fit with the policy. Very slightly over 50k (50.1 and 51.1 respectively) but I'm sure you'll give me that.

Absolutely.

Perfect! Thank you smile

Great wallpapers indeed! Perhaps you could make a male version too :-)

Is it sexy? No. Is it pretty and "well rendered"? Yes.
