Splashing Screen

Brilliant! Here's another showcase of my attention span. My Thesis has several applications which impliment, demonstrates and showcases theory. This splash screen was created for the application used to dynamically configure the design flow of embedded system tools.

Perhaps i should explain the irony of this image. The entire (software)application was developed using the microsoft .NET plaform. Not just the User Interface, everything from highlevel user interaction to really lowlevel libraries. The image shows the linux penguin Tux about to swat the micosoft msn butterfly :)

The splashscreen was created using GIMP. The image of "the-tough-Tux-about-to-sawt-the-msn-butterfuly" is licensed under GPL. I really should focus and finish my Thesis...


  • The original image is of size 600x400. Posted above is a scaled down image. Alot of the detail is lost. I particularly like the funky gradient. Unlike the normal smooth gradients, this was funked around with to have somewhat a chaotic appearance. flickr has a slightly larger image, with a little more explanation of why it looks like it does. Still no clear detail tho.

  • So...I suppose this is part of your Thesis?
    You have exactly 4 days to finish your implementation + x days from those you've used during the implementation period for writing up.

    Keep it up!!
    So you can start full time work on 1st July or the 4th (Monday)
