Tux in Android Robot Costume 1 by Whidden Tux in Android Robot Costume 1 by Whidden
Android and Linux are very tightly related. Android is an open-source operating system created by Google and runs over a Linux kernal. The images I am posting are symbolic of this close relationship.

These files were created as a means to an ends - I wanted a wallpaper with Tux dressed as the Android Robot for my tablet but I couldn't find anything online. I'm making my creations available here for others who may also be searching for an Android-costumed Tux.

I am uploading three separate images: 2 raw images containing an alpha channel to encourage artistic manipulation and a "finished" wallpaper making use of the second raw image in combination with a background image.

As I chose to use Tuxdroid2 in the wallpaper file, it is more finished than Tuxdroid1, I am uploading Tuxdroid1 in case anyone should want a version which includes the Android Robot's original feet.

I should point out that none of the raw images, nor their subjects, were created by me (excluding the text caption) - I merely edited three individual images into a single file to achieve my goal and make no claims of ownership.
