KSplash - Red Chenille


This theme is an effort to create  an animation for user login in KDE which does not use only blurring and opacity changes as  its main concept. This is why I focused my effort around an animated hand writing technique. Because I didnt have any synfigprevious experience with 2D animation all this effort lasted more than usual as I had to learn 2D animation from scratch. The application that was used was Synfig , a fantastic application which adds great value in Linux ecosystem. I will definetely use Synfig in the feature for any other 2D animations  I will need.

An added effort was focused on retaining the theme's simplicity and that's why only black and white hue was used in combination with the various shadows...

 

The tutorial for the hand writing technique can be found here...
