I think I'll try this, seeing as my idea for the last one hit me too late.

I might try and incorporate the meaning of ékóbór: "little bite" or "rabbit"

16 Colors. Background finish, but not in this piece.
I'll work on the outline and finish the cane.
(The "P" isn't finish, yet !)

I'm really getting back to my ROOTS on this one:



Is it ok if I leave it at "Justin" or should I go all out and do "Justincrdibl"?

Oh and I apologize for any face palming due to that bad pun^^

Ok This still isnt done yet.....



But.... I want to add a glow affect or blurr affect to make it look cooler. this is what happens when I use the blur filter in graphics gale.

I know I cant use this version as I did not pixel the blur by hand. but does anyone have tip on how to get something like this or a glow effect or something by hand. detailed tips are nice. thanks. other C&C is ok too...

I understand that filters are bad. I was just using it as reference. If you read my post it clearly stated that I wanted to know a way to get that same effect, but without the filter. not that I ever wanted to use the filter in a piece.

I really like the style you have here. The shadows on the font are great. Plus the palette is just great. I'd say I like the black version better, but the green version would be cool if the background was textured like grass a bit.

Tomic: MC Escher called to complain that you're giving him a headache.
Antifarea: I really like the adaptive font, but be careful with the fatter lines that you use for depth : it may be better to "simply" make light come from top left or something.
Blendaz: z seems small.

I can read "Tomic", but it took me time to actually find the letters.

If I didn't know the name, I would only see a "T" and a bunch of surreal blocks.

tomic- thats looking great so far.

I'm guessing this is probably a no but are we allowed to add other things to the logo? Like a face thats attached to the lettering or like...an object that the letters are wrapping around or something like that?

I can find the top of the I, but not the bottom. Though it takes a moment for my mind to see the letters, I can read it~ I likes, can't wait to see the colours~

well, orenstiv, the cool kids can read it..

anyways, got kept from working on it the last couple of days.. had to finish the ninja report first =)



hope i can find the time to finish it in time this weekend;
decided to go 8 color again..

@skam: hehe =)

@prustel: i'd recommend some kind of connection between the letters.. graffiti rarely features such spacings.

pixel suit up!

Sorry Tom, but I don't think it's very readable as-is. I had to look really hard to find the "i".

If I didn't know the word was "Tomic", it would've just lookeed like a bunch of psychedelic scribbles to me...

indicates that you eventually were able to read it. lawyered =)

dunno that complaining reminds me on 80 yr. olds that grew up with nazi and/or communist realism, standing infront of a graffiti and don't get it. graffiti rarely aims for readabilty.

as already mentioned: the cool kids did get it.
