What if its an outer space scene with stars (having animated twinkles

may be, one or two planets with 'our' rocket somewhere in the picture.
The scene would have a blueish hue to it. Its the kind of thing that is
best done with a 3D application like 'Blender' and rendered with V-Ray
or Yafray (and retouched in GIMP). I cannot help thinking about a
wallpaper I downloaded from CG-Arena ... just to help our imaginations
as I can't think of anything closer at the moment. My reference is a
bit busy but I hope it paints the right mental pictures.
I think that image is *awesome*, however as Brad pointed already, it is
not very usable, it looks very busy and has a lot of small details
obscuring the icons. Also, I know he have a couple of people with some
degree of Blender experience (some more knowledgeable, some a bit less),
but I pretty much doubt we have the level needed to do something as
advanced like that.
I also expect some would not like an image like that because it has a
"war" message (even if the message is "war in space") but I don't
much about such a complaint.
