I recently found an old design I had done for KDE that I completely forgotten about.

Back in the late 90’s I was evolved a bit with the KDE project, one of the jobs that I did was to create a screen-saver, I did the graphics and another person did the coding.

My design idea was simple, a 3D Tux in a spaceship flying around in a space backdrop .. simple, but efficient (and cute for the time). I designed both the Tux and the spaceship in Lightwave 3D from scratch .. then I animated a sprite loop and the rest was coding, the name of the screen-saver was “KTUX” and it’s part of “KDEtoys”

It seems it’s still part of KDE and floating around .. so even so it was a simple job for me, I’m quite proud it stuck with the project :).
