To download new plymouth themes go to this page. When you want to install a new plymouth theme start the Splash Screen Manager and and click on the Install button and go to the folder where you saved the downloaded file, select the theme and click on the Open button.

The default login screen of Linux Mint is pretty tedious in my opinion that's why this was one of the first things I changed after installing Linux Mint 13 (MATE). All I did was to edit the file /usr/share/mdm/themes/linuxmint/theme.xml by changing the background picture and re-arranging the position of the text, boxes and buttons.
