My first 2015 submission was also art. ^^
The lines look like they were drawn with a mouse instead of a stylus. If you only have a mouse to draw with, I would suggest you turn on stroke smoothing to get smoother, more natural-looking curves. If you want to, you could also trace over a reference treble clef design on a separate layer.
I'll also complain that the color combination is very discomforting to me. Fortunately, if your program supports it, you can draw on different layers, then easily adjust the color of each layer until you find something you really like.
I don't know what features Paint.NET supports, but GIMP does everything I want it to do, and it's also free. I had a better experience with stroke smoothing in Photoshop, but it's too expensive.
Props for making your own logo, and I hope to see you work on it more! ^^
Heh, yeah. I saw your Grinch when you posted it, and I really like it :)
It's great that it looks like the lines were drawn with a mouse, as that's actually an upgrade, considering I made this whole thing useing a mouse pad ;)
Not all lines were drawn either, as some were created using alternative methods...
Thanks for all the adcvice!
Paint.net probably has the features you mentioned, and I did use different layers. I like discomforting though, so the blend of colors is just the way I want it XD (I actually did do some color adjusting to achieve my results).
I know that GIMP is free, and for that, it's a great tool. My sister uses it quite a lot :3
Thanks for the review, and I'll probably upgrade my logo, perhaps once a year or so?
Neat! It does indeed look a bit cleaner than your old logo. I like the wavy, translucent textures in the background that look somewhat like some sort of body cells. The "s + d = G clef" idea was rather innovative as well. Cool stuff, LSD. ;D
Why hello :p
Thanks for the art review :3
They do kinda look like cells actually!
