I need some help making a logo for my photos. I'm looking for someone to draw a Ant holding a DLSR camera. I would like it to be a simple pic, nothing really fancy, but something different. I have some things I could give to the person that does one that I like. I have a water proof case for an Ipod, I have a fiberglass tower box (just the box) and I'm sure I have some other things as well if those items are not to your liking. Again this will be used on all my pics in a transparent form. <BR> <BR>Can anyone help me?

dakid 07-21-2006 1:56 PM

will i still get all the stuff if the ant is holding a nikon? <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

antbug 07-21-2006 1:58 PM

Canon only please <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0> j/k any SLR will work.

dakid 07-21-2006 1:59 PM

i have a great idea on what i want to draw. unfortunately, i can't draw for crap! i'll have frankie draw it up. she's pretty good at that stuff. then i'll see what you think of it.

antbug 07-21-2006 2:36 PM

sweet thanks Joe.

trojanman 07-21-2006 4:08 PM

why didnt you guys just call eachother ----

antbug 07-21-2006 4:11 PM

Why don't you draw me something. hahaha

solo 07-21-2006 4:20 PM

Can anybody enter?

antbug 07-21-2006 4:23 PM

yes, anyone

wakeriderixi 07-21-2006 4:51 PM

If you can get that camera incorperated into the picture more realistically that would be a pimp logo!

wakeriderixi 07-21-2006 4:52 PM

Or an ant like that, but standing more up leaning a little forword with a backwards hat on looking into the lense of the camera!

dakid 07-21-2006 4:53 PM

it would be, but i don't think disney/pixar would appreciate it.

solo 07-21-2006 4:55 PM

Come on I had 10 mins.....<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0>

wakeriderixi 07-21-2006 4:57 PM

No worries. Wakeboarding isn't important! It's such a small stupid sport Disney wouldn't even take note of the stolen image. Heck, the X Games don't even take notice.

antbug 07-21-2006 6:17 PM

At least Hahn is trying. <BR> <BR>Not bad Hahn, but I'm looking for something more like what Paul is discribing. Why the Nikon dude? <BR> <BR>Aneone else have anything?

solo 07-21-2006 7:38 PM

I put the nikon in there for Umali.....

allen 07-21-2006 9:52 PM

Whats up Bug, I have nothing to add to this post sorry, Steve hows your daughter doin? <BR>OK back to your post <BR> <BR>Al

ralph 07-21-2006 10:46 PM

My cousin is a great graphic artist and loves wakeboarding. I will give him the brief and get him to draw something up. Do you want a cartoon style ant or realistic? Do you have a photo of yourself for inspiration? If it meets your fancy can you give something away to a young wakeboarder who would appreciate it, shipping will kill the deal for us.

rnopr8 07-22-2006 12:06 AM

Hey Ant....missing you at the CLWC tourneys!!! I'll see if my son can give you something. He is a great artist so I'll ask if he wants to give it a go. Hope to see you soon. Geri

live2wakeboard 07-22-2006 10:23 PM

Hey when u do get one post it on here so everyone can see it?? Im interested in seeing wat ppl have come up with!!

walt 07-23-2006 3:55 PM

Ant, <BR> <BR>Check Your E-mail.

rnopr8 07-23-2006 5:27 PM

Ditto...check your e-mail.

antbug 07-24-2006 12:46 PM

hahahaha you guys are killing me over here. I know some people on here have some skills. What up Wakeworld....help a brotha out. <BR> <BR>I'll see if I can find a pic of me with my camera, but I'm looking for a pic of a ant with a camera. Nothing crazy just a simple, but cool drawing.

dakid 07-24-2006 12:46 PM

antbug 07-24-2006 3:21 PM

alain ~ Now that's what I'm talking about. I like the black and white one as it's going to be a transparent logo on my pics. Let's see if anyone else has a different one I might like a little more, but great job. I'll keep you posted. Again thanks for the pic.

ak4life 07-24-2006 5:35 PM

since you like B/W, here's a version with a transparent background and white glow so it should look OK regardless of the background.. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/349426.png" alt="Upload">

ak4life 07-24-2006 5:41 PM

i'll email you the transparent png and the source psd. <BR> <BR>if you do decide to use it, you can skip the reward since the drawing is not mine, but do check with with this guy to see what he wants for it: <a href="http://www.cartoonclipart.org/page/2/" target="_blank">http://www.cartoonclipart.org/page/2/</a> <BR> <BR>maybe he'll just let you use it with proper credit..

walt 07-24-2006 5:48 PM

Ant, <BR> <BR>You should knock the opacity back to about 50% on the B&amp;W version.

wakeriderixi 07-24-2006 6:02 PM

I suck but I was thinking something like this pose with an ant that looks like the pixar ones..<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/349440.jpg" alt="Upload">

solo 07-24-2006 6:23 PM

This is a great post. I too am looking for a watermark for my photos. Ant had a great idea here. I'd be willing to drop a few items to the person that could design me a logo as well. <BR> <BR>I have no ideas to even start with. Any suggestions?

dakid 07-24-2006 6:37 PM

how 'bout an asian cartoon dude w/ a bunch of cameras dressed in touristy clothes?

solo 07-24-2006 7:40 PM

Then it'd look like you????

wakeriderixi 07-24-2006 7:47 PM


rnopr8 07-24-2006 7:54 PM

great Alain...I could have downloaded that same clip art

rnopr8 07-24-2006 7:58 PM


dakid 07-24-2006 8:00 PM

hahn, true. now, had i suggested a sumo wrestler w/ cameras...

rnopr8 07-24-2006 8:03 PM

sorry Hahns....no more ideas....mine obviously sucked anyway<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" border=0>

ak4life 07-24-2006 8:22 PM

No way SoCal, that drawing is a keeper! It can't be downsized though, or it'll loose some of its magic..

rnopr8 07-24-2006 8:49 PM

<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>=SoCal feelin better...thanks Alain

antbug 07-26-2006 8:17 AM

Does anyone else have anything?

garret_s 07-26-2006 8:45 AM

Ant: I'll cook something up for you tonight. Hold on to your pants.

garret_s 07-26-2006 11:16 AM

hmmm almost done! I got an early start...

antbug 07-26-2006 12:25 PM

sweet I can't wait to see it.

wakeslife 07-26-2006 3:20 PM

Im so excited for garret's idea.. i got ants in my pants <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lame.gif" border=0>

ralph 07-26-2006 4:25 PM

Why do you think of these as a concept? <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/350177.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/350178.jpg" alt="Upload">

antbug 07-26-2006 7:26 PM

Darren ~ I see you have skills on and off the water. The second one has some potential. I think it would look better if it was just from the waist up and maybe if he was talking a pic. You know... like having the camera up to his face. The 1st one almost looks like a rabbit IMO. <BR> <BR>Here is a pic of me that some of you were asking for. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/350245.jpg" alt="Upload">

garret_s 07-26-2006 7:42 PM

ALMOST...THERE>.....Getting close on mine.

dakid 07-26-2006 7:51 PM

bug, i disagree. i like the pic the way it is, how he's posed and all. i think the only thing left to do is to make the camera bigger and to clean it all up!

ralph 07-26-2006 8:03 PM

I am but a messenger, my boy Ben is the artist. He is a talented Mofo and a complete nut when riding. <BR> <BR>I will give him some more direction and get him started. Do you want it colored or B/W?

garret_s 07-26-2006 9:58 PM

Ok, here is a little bit of what I am working on. Need some opinions from the man, before I waste my time. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/350305.png" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR>[EDIT] Done in vector, so can be scaled, shaded, changed in any way VERY quickly. I just figured I would rough out my concept, to see if that might be what you are shooting for... <BR> <BR>(Message edited by garret_s on July 26, 2006)

dcervenka 07-27-2006 11:57 PM

ahhhh, you should talk to Shannon..!

antbug 07-28-2006 8:39 AM

Fu ~ Can you hook me up with his email address? <BR> <BR>Garret ~ I like the ant, but the camera on his back just doesn't flow for me. Maybe if the ant was taking a pic and the camera was sized done a little. Other than that it looks really good. Nice job.

garret_s 07-28-2006 8:59 AM

Ant: I will get you something a lot cooler looking later tonight. If I understand correctly, you want him to be taking the picture, with a smaller camera? Would you like the ant like...upright, or crawling as is? Shading or no? I can do pretty much whatever with that drawing, I just need direction...

antbug 07-28-2006 9:20 AM

I think upright would look best, but I'm not the artist hahaha. <BR> <BR>Thanks for your time and effort.

woohoo 07-28-2006 10:20 AM

pierce_bronkite 07-28-2006 10:30 AM

Darren, cool concept but it reminds me a lot of the movie Ants. Garret thats a good start but I would make the ant look a lot cooler or possibly with a "mean" attitude. I aggree upright would look a lot better.
