vector drawing is very easy to pick up but requires a slightly different "mindset" to raster.

with vector u are plotting and curving beziers, but to my students i always tried to explain it by saying the nearest "real world" type of art i can think of is constructing a picture from layers of cut paper.

Cleaned lines on the tilted version (13).
I'm now painfully aware of the stupidity of doing this in pixels.  :-[

I'm not satisfied with the interaction of legs and snake tail in the lower left corner.
The composition looks confused there, and all those pointy things give off an aggressive feel.

I tried to remedy it in two ways: rounding the leg tips (14); and reversing some curves (15).
I think 14 is my fav, but it doesn't really address the composition issue. Is there one really?

I like the look of the logo and I prefer number 14 as I like the direction that the curves flow in. I would say that it looks too "generic star character" which is quite common. Definitely go vector when you have the chance.

yeah i like 14

if u arent happy with the way the legs and snake tail meet, one small edit you could try is to very slightly extend the snake tail and curve it off to the right away from the dark starmans leg. just add a small flick curve to the right on the end of it. nothing huge.

just a thought.

EDIT: like u had it in your first 2 example posts :)

Latest:



Longer snake with that little tail stroke to the right: thanks Steve! Starguys lines cleaned a bit more (some bumpiness remains here and there).

New color trials, using these palettes.
There is a logic in that: these are the local colors. I certainly had not planned that use when I first made them!
I'm not saying (yet) I'll stick to them, just wanted to see what could happen.

I really like colours for number 17, but I do wonder what other background colours the logo might be put onto...

I like 18 and 19; the orange colors emit vitality.

I can't help but think of a group of people summoning some kind of nefarious demon. Of course, no one's really going to think of that when they see it, so it's no problem. Made me chuckle though.

Sh*t, can't un-see.
