The Logo

Postby RevSears on Thu Aug 30, 2012 1:27 pm

Where did it come from and how did you make it? I am trying to figure out how to get one for my blog. Flaming text's banners are too big in size and to low in quality for the pixel limit that word press requires.

I made it :) I found a picture of a military cross, and I bred the idea with that of the Army logo with the star.

I'm sure that Matt and I together could make something worth your while. Give me an idea of what you are looking for.

I have played with some here, :http://nerd4thelord.wordpress.com/2012/08/31/the-question-of-the-logo/

but I am not sure i like any of them.

I've pictured a couple of things, an icthus with glasses and a neck beard (you know that looks nerdy) and N4L with the 4 or the L being tied into an icthtus somehow. I'd love to see what you guys could come up with.

That looks amazing Chad! More unique than anything I was coming up with that I could actually do.

The only thing I think I would change would be to make the glasses square, it seems like square glasses are little more nerdy.

I made a small sketch for the idea, then drew the large ichthus. I drew (and redrew and redrew) the glasses and facial hair until I came up with this. The letters were a natural fit.

Matt is much better at redrawing digitally. Maybe he can help us there :)

Matt said he could fix that when he creates a digital image.

I like it but the mouth. Mine was more like a slight smirk.

I was thinking more like this.

What program are you two using?

The website is still stubbornly wanting me to crop the image. I don't have photoshop anymore and now I wish to make sure whatever I use, I get it legally.

I use Paint Shop Pro 8. Gimp is a good free program: http://www.gimp.org/

What are the dimensions you need for the image?
