Are any logos gonna be printed on high res media or something? I don't currently have a way to draw any vector images, nor do I really see a reason why I'd want to bother.

Oh and please nobody use my crappy scribble, even if you try to patch it up, lol. D: Seeing it in high res is embarrassing. I'll worry about trying something proper when the time comes.

Cool that you can tell OC from just a few lines, I guess the program does have a certain something about its lines. Can you really tell if I'm any good from a tiny scribble though. ;p

Inkscape is a free vector program. A vector image allows byuu to have access to a high quality scalable version, so in case the original artist disappears he can still easily make different logo sizes for a webpage or something :P

P.S. I could always help out and create a vectorized image, if you don't feel like doing it 8)

P.P.S. This is for fritzroy :P http://www.megaupload.com/?d=C3KXGCC4

Possibly. I don't want to rule that out.

And it will likely become a trend for apps to use vector graphics in the future. Qt already supports it, and with static linking I may very well take advantage of it for release. Eg resize the about window and the image resizes without distortion.

I don't currently have a way to draw any vector images, nor do I really see a reason why I'd want to bother.


bobthebuilder did an awesome job converting your last one.
If you wouldn't mind making a kick-ass PNG version of someone cool, hopefully someone could vectorize it for you :D

I will probably have to alternate between with and without the character art, as it doesn't fit the 4:1 aspect ratio I was looking for, for website banners and such.

...Maybe I should just stop trying. ;_;


Well, I like the logo to an extent. And I very much appreciate you submitting it. I don't like the "EMULATOR" bar, or the font style. But other than that, every logo you've posted has been almost identical with very minor changes, so I don't have much feedback to give, I apologize.

I definitely find the highlighting on the SFC clove thing awesome.

Can I see a version where you color each letter differently? That would improve legibility, at the moment I'm not sure what to think.
I bring the trouble.

my vote goes to gllt's.

I think it lends itself nicely to creative "refreshes" of the logo, while still being easily recognizable.

I decided to try my own attempt to digitally fix & enhance blackmyst's logo. Nothing fancy, just some re-alignment of the letters and I gave the sword some viagra

Corrected version:

I won't keep telling people not to polish that turd of mine, but know that it's kinda useless because I'll do a fresh one later that's not just a squiggly. :p
