Saving pixelart as .jpg kills the quality(or uploading a .bmp to most imagehosts) :ouch:
You should use .gif(not in paint though, messes with the colors) or .png. :y:

It's rather difficult to read.

Readability is probably hindered by the cutoff between peach and red being in the same place as the upper detail on the letters. Imo you could play with anti-aliasing, line weight and subtle curves - I assume that you're wanting a low-res feel but that stuff can still help :)

It says "POPER ROX"?

Is the orange supposed to be dripping paint or something? Add more curves for the paint then so it looks like a drip.

well i wanted to give it a "plastic dripp" feal to it.. hmm i think i should have scaled it a bit bigger.

and yes poper rox.. kinda dirty i know =p but thats the name of my band so ^^

and i did want a minimalistic feeling to it.. the coulours might ... or is bad so i'll give it some more work and repost it .. and maybe scale it up to 300x300 or something :)

Good luck with this. Maybe I'm naive but I don't know how "Poper Rox" is dirty & now I'm curious.
Anyway, I have a lot of free time today, so I thought I'd see how a smooth, shiny, anti-aliased approach would look.

Maybe it'll help.

using GraphicsGale and i could not in good way make "half tones" kinda like make a layer 50% in order to make better AA ... well i guess i have to change progs or find a harder way to do it ^^
