Description:

To celebrate the opening of the Dapper repositories, I would like to submit this concept...
This isnt too serious, just done quickly on my tablet, and I’m sure most of you freedom/peace-concept loving guys will hate it, as I just had some fun letting my imagination run wild, and made a evil duck, an evil (cool?) drake. Thats the first connotation that entered my head, i drew it, and now id like to share it with you.

It’s quite clear to me that this isnt in line with the ubuntu philosophy, i didnt mean it to be, but ubuntu is simply a great operating system, and thats the only reason im using it, while being no cooler than suse or debian or windows (only better…if you see my point…). Maybe this will get people to consider changing that a bit. I of course like the Ubuntu free/open motto, but I don’t see that your desktop has to be faceless/neutral/boring? because of that.

I’ve given up listening to people who want dumbed down cute ducklings that i know everyone else is going to create. If you want cute drakes, search for them elsewhere. As you all know, I don’t like the faceless/boring logo, so after my scandalous (?) ubuntu medicine mask, which most people thought was too racy, I now bring you my next (scandalous ?) entry...my dapper drake.

Think outside of the box, people, make some art with character!

My better-formulated thoughts are here on my Medicine Mask Wiki:

This is just fantastic. My only complaint (which is a common one) is that the moon is very bright right where most people's dektop icon's sit. Another thing is that if you have a bottom panel more than say 15 pixels high, it cuts off part of the mask.

That being said. I completely agree with everything you said, and I hope you continue to do work in this way! Maybe a Breezy Badger for thos of us who will be on the stable side for a while?

hey denisesballs

thankyou too!! Im sorry about the moon, but it just doesnt look right when dim...and having it behind clouds makes the whole thing look a little wrong...

I've done a breezy badger already, for a competition, which I just realized I haven posted yet here on gnome-look! the problem is, making an evil badger kind of doest work at all as "breezy" means "jolly" and "without a worry in the world"...having a prancing evil badger makes it a little strange, again. maybe my breezy badger will be enough for you? it is kind of uncool, i know, but was kind of forced into that by the wording of the name... I dont even want to think about what would have happened if people had started drawing mascots when "warty warthog" was still the latest stable...

okay, ive put the original without the mustard, as im not sure which you saw in the first place anyway...

thankyou seanparsons for the kind words!
felipe, on the original the medicine mask is less obvious, and the whole seems more coherent...

thanks again
cheers, n.

I am definitely a GNU hippie, AND I THINK THIS IS GREAT. I'm using this wallpaper now, and I will probably start playing with the new repositories later this month. Thanks for taking the time to create the cool EVIL drake ;^)
