• Need Help With a Simple Logo (Details Inside)
    9 replies, posted
Alright, so I'm no artist what so ever. I've been trying to do a logo for a little bit now, and what I'm looking for is an 8-Bit Themed wolf paw print. Now I've tried drawing something up, but nothing has looked good so far. I'm not even sure what colors to use, like if a black color would be good, or maybe a gray fading to black. I've got no bloody idea. If I could get some help from you much more creative folks. I thank you. (I'll post some stuff I've been messing with) I drew this and scanned onto my computer.

I just whipped these up. Took awhile, but, it's getting closer to the feel that I'm looking for.

My suggestion would be to actually make it pixellated. Draw out a wolf paw the way you think it ACTUALLY looks, and then pixellate and work off of that. Right now you are trying to make the concept fit a preconceived notion in your head. USE THE CONCEPT TO CREATE A NOTION. This will also help with the fact that there isn't a consistent pixellation in any of these.
What program are you working in? Here's a really quick photoshop jobby scaled up from a 16x16 pixel image: [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2016622/Untitled-1.png[/img] If you want to do a proper pixel art thing work as small as you can and resize the image. Another thing to remember with pixel art is that diagonal lines will be blocky: [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2016622/Untitled-2.png[/img]
Roflcakes, I really, really like yours. I was using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Now, it doesn't have to be 100% 8-Bit, I wanted a 8-Bit feeling, Like Modern with some 8-bit in it. I'm totally going to use your image as an avatar if that's alright? :3 Option 1 [IMG]http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/2518/evenmore8bitfeeling4.jpg[/IMG] Option 2 [IMG]http://img717.imageshack.us/img717/346/evenmore8bitfeeling5.jpg[/IMG] What do you guys think? I just whipped these up, is it good for an outline?
Sure, go ahead. Also out of the two new ones I prefer the second.
Yeah, a lot of people liked the second so I ended going up with that. I'm think about learning how to model so I can model it into a 3D object.
Here you go. [t]http://i.imgur.com/hC0oo.png[/t] [url]http://filesmelt.com/dl/wolf_paw.7z[/url] Use Blender. Render button is F12, middle mouse and shift control view, right click to select objects, use "g" and "r" to rotate the camera/paw.
Holy shit dude! that's amazing man, you just made a tear run across my face. <3 It's like perfect width and everything.

I added you on steam, I'm NightWolf. I made another version of the logo, just trying out different things to see what I like most. ignore the lines in the middle there for after effects. (I'm making an intro for it and I have an idea, where the palm breaks apart and flies in the screen and comes together in the middle and well so on) Option One [IMG]http://img607.imageshack.us/img607/2123/uniform8bit.jpg[/IMG] Option Two [IMG]http://img543.imageshack.us/img543/2274/uniform8bitnewclawstwo.jpg[/IMG] Option Three [IMG]http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/2244/uniform8bitnewclawsonepfax.jpg[/IMG]
