Blender is nothing new in the hands of the GNOME design team. It has been used for well over a decade to create motion prototypes for GNOME Shell and various other components and apps. Even icon design in the past.
The upcoming 44 release, scheduled for March 2023, will feature a fresh new set of CG wallpapers in two variants (light & dark). Majority of these assets have been created with Blender including some you'd probably not have guessed. As mentioned in his recent talk during the Fedora Creative Freedom Summit, Blender's non destructive workflow along with great realtime performance make it a preferred tool even for tasks you'd expect a vector or bitmap editors take its place. Similarly to Blender Studio releasing the movie assets, the source projects are available publicly in the team's gitlab repository.
