A lot of great artwork has been submitted to Ubuntu for selection for the upcoming release of the latest Ubuntu release, 9.10 which is due out in October. Most of the really nice artwork goes unseen, so here are a few submissions, plus a first glimpse at what will probably become the boot screen and login screen for Ubuntu 9.10:

But in the end, it is more likely the conservative boot/splash images that win through. It is heavily touted that this will be the boot screen of choice for Ubuntu 9.10. Whilst it may be changed a bit, the general look will be along these lines:
