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.

Can anyone help me?

If you can get that camera incorperated into the picture more realistically that would be a pimp logo!
Old    Paul Bernier (wakeriderixi)      Join Date: Jan 2004       07-21-2006, 4:52 PM Reply   
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!

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.

At least Hahn is trying.

Not bad Hahn, but I'm looking for something more like what Paul is discribing. Why the Nikon dude?

Aneone else have anything?

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.

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

hahahaha you guys are killing me over here. I know some people on here have some skills. What up Wakeworld....help a brotha out.

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.

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.
Old    Alain (ak4life)      Join Date: Nov 2003       07-24-2006, 5:35 PM Reply   
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..

Old    Alain (ak4life)      Join Date: Nov 2003       07-24-2006, 5:41 PM Reply   
i'll email you the transparent png and the source psd.

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: http://www.cartoonclipart.org/page/2/

maybe he'll just let you use it with proper credit..
Old    walt            07-24-2006, 5:48 PM Reply   
Ant,

You should knock the opacity back to about 50% on the B&W version.

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.

I have no ideas to even start with. Any suggestions?

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.

Here is a pic of me that some of you were asking for.

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!

I am but a messenger, my boy Ben is the artist. He is a talented Mofo and a complete nut when riding.

I will give him some more direction and get him started. Do you want it colored or B/W?

Ok, here is a little bit of what I am working on. Need some opinions from the man, before I waste my time.

[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...

Fu ~ Can you hook me up with his email address?

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.

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...

I think upright would look best, but I'm not the artist hahaha.

Thanks for your time and effort.

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.

I just checked out this thread! Wish i had done it sooner...

If any of you guys looking for logos still haven't come to a decision... email me cristinaamador@gmail.com

I am almost done with my graphic design studies and have some experience in logo design... I made SMU's Wakeoard club logo earlier this year and have designed logos for things non wb related. I would love to help you out, so email me with what you're looking for, what kind of image you'd like to project (more serious, informal, etc) and any other things you wouldn't want in your logo
