KodeZwerg Logo needed
« on: December 05, 2018, 04:38 PM »
( ...please dont shoot me that i request no software... ...feel free to move to a better place as request or delete if wrong at all )

Hello community,

I am in need of a Logo for myself, I would like to add splashscreen and about-box features in this or that app, but i miss nice logo(s) for them.
My talent at drawing is like Kindergarten, needed is something more impressive :-)

In my head i have many ideas but cant realize on my own.
If someone is talented and has fun creating image(s) for me, with Dwarf as theme and my nickname "KodeZwerg" somewhere readable, that'll be perfect! If a "KodeZwerg 4 DonationCoder" comes out, that'll be best.

Image(s) that be used will get permanent named in credits, either by current nickname or whatever you like should appear (no racism or porn) =)

Are you a talented artist and like to do then please reply in here!

I have no criterias like "what font to use" "what style to use" "what xyz"
Dwarf theme with my nickname (optional DonationCoder mentioned)
If grafitti, science-fiction, medieval style doesnt matter, i love any dwarf thing ;-)

More information needed? Just tell!

A couple more things that might be relevant:
  • What size or aspect ratio are you looking for (wide, square, etc.)?  A large size can always be reduces, but changing the aspect ratio can be an issue.
  • Are you looking for a transparent logo that you can put on top of a background, or a non-transparent rectangle?
  • In many cases, having the text be editable can be important, by using a graphics program that allows text layers, or leaving text off the image and letting it be added after.

Thankyou for that ultrafast reply!

Uhm... Dimension/Aspect Ratio = I have no real idea yet, I would resize to my needs I guess, so this point dont take care too much.
(in code i would adjust visible dimension anyway at runtime to adopt to current screensize)

Transparency = same story, you should not need to take care about, some basics i also know like setting a color to transparent color.

To explain a bit:
Splashscreen: would be loaded and displayed as transparent PNG file, there would be just the image visible no window no control no nothing.
so background would be whatever current screen is showing... desktop... other windows... my dwarf avatar, whatever =)
Aboutbox: there i would paint the image on a panel (canvas/static) background would be like about-box background is set (default = grey)
For Aboutbox there is a small image needed, maybe just KZ as letter with a dwarf possible?

or in other words:
Splashscreen needs a high quality image
Aboutbox needs a small good looking thing that still can be identified as "me"
