Logo (still) needed
So I have been tinkering this evening with a rough design for a site icon, my inspiration was a cross between the Linux penguin and the militant secretive penguin called Ted of the Control-Alt-Delete comic. Those unfamiliar with the comic should brutally punish themselves and then proceed directly to CAD-Comic (dont pass go, don’t collect $200.)
But anyway I came up with a number of sketches after failing to make any headway in photoshop freehand.
I pseudo-developed the look I was aiming for and imported it into photoshop via a method I like to call the poor-man’s light box. I simply took a picture of the drawing with my N95 and used it as a locked background layer in photoshop. It worked quite well actually although I wish I had a tablet pad. Here is where I am at presently, its very rough around the edges and needs a lot more love but I am quite proud of what I managed to make with no prior experience and very little time.
