Just wondering if there was any artistically inclined people who are up for a challenge. You don't have much space to work with, its 16x16 but your allowed 32bit colour.

Might be a good idea to work with png. Anyway, I'm hopeless at it, and at the moment there's a rather crude H.

If you feel you can knock one up (a zombified emule icon would be cool, but anything that's on topic) I would most appreciate any efforts.

As a prize you erm, get a free... erm download. Yeah, I guess.
:mrgreen:

Spud.

damn my eyes suck, actually they are pretty cool... I think the red eyes and the original logo one are the best two.

How did you make the zombie mule? Resize one down, how does it look full size?

This was the original(found it on Google images):

And the un-finished zombie mule :

Image

Resized it with adobe photoshop till it was right, then coloured it up a bit and removed the right arm and put it in his left arm :lol:

Well here's my take:

But making this a 16x16 will result in pretty much nothing:

i updated the favicon with a smilie from the smilie database.

But that dead donkey looks really cool, might put it up as that logo at the top of the site if you don't mind.

Wow, of course, it would be an honor. :googley:
But don't you want any changes in it? Like adding some text in it, or whatever, but if you don't feel free to use it.
Oh and if you want the .psd file ask me. Well gotta go to work now, later's.

This is nice. Perhaps with a transparent background?

For the favicon, maybe a simple image to start with:
Image(but darker with red eyes)


I can play around with it when I get home...

yeah, that would be cool, transparent background with the text Dead Donkey at the bottom. How about something with the eye(s), maybe a X in the left one like you see in cartoons.

I dunno, your obviously better at these things than i am :lol:

Erm.. fucking IE doesn't display transparent .png backgrounds the result of it is a grey background, but firefox does.

Firefox:

IE:

So i had to do a .gif file with a transparent background with dark grey as matte to show on the forums and one with black matte to put as the logo (since the page background is black.) So this way it will work fine for both.

So preview in forums:

And the final image for the top logo:

If any changes are needed please tell me.

any chance of getting a png and a psd? Will help with resizing and what have you for the banners.

I dunno about the font of the dead donkey though; the white will stand out on black too much of a contrast (darker grey maybe?). As far as fonts go, I got a whole host of horror ones installed, the one on the current banner is "Blasphemy" which looks kind of neat. i like adding them with fireworks since you can add glow filters on them which i always thought looked kind of neat (see the scifi banner below).

I dunno i guess its just tweaking it till its perfect.

As everyone says, it does look very good... i like the button eye too :)

Yeah i totally agree with the font thing.
Of course you can, here's the .rar file containing the .psd and .png files, do whatever you want with it, but keep in mind that transparent .png backgrounds don't work on IE.

download
