"Obviously, when you are composing a background, you need to consider what's going to appear in front of it: you don't want to create something really busy, and certainly not where the foreground graphics will appear. I always leave some space for the login box when I'm laying out my background for KDM; with GRUB, it’s necessary to keep most of the screen relatively smooth because GRUB will put "terminal text" on top of the graphic you create. I found that the way that GRUB handles this text is pretty forgiving, but you still don't want to have a face or busy patterns, especially on the upper left part of the screen where the menu entries will appear."
