Nothing is going to beat the Linux/SGI penguin code I have in mind:

Underlay plane is setup with a huge Penguin bitmap, set the Alpha
channel to display 20% of the underlay plane; then run all of the
regular console code on top of this.

Any userland application can load something different on the underlay
plane after boot, of course.
