Made a new youtube logo

Recommended Posts

xXepicjasaXx

Hey guys, yesterday i decided that i needed to change my logo and have an actual logo instead of my name with something in the background.

 

So i have been using Paint.net for a very long time and I've watched many tutorials to get better so please guys i would like it if you guys could rate my new logo out of 10 and maybe put a small sentence of what you think so any suggestions and what you like. thanks :)

 

 

 

OLD logo NEW logo

5/10? I hate number ratings.

Here is criticism, take it the way you want. I'm not by any means a graphic designer. However, I have a general idea of how this thing works.

 

OK.

___

 

The triangle is not aligned with the main shape.

 

There is a lot of aliasing on the lines.

 

The "Drop Shadow" effect could be weaker. It kinda looks too dark.

 

The background image is nice... However, it doesn't look as sharp. NITPICK ALERT.

___

 

The overall "design" of the logo seems interesting, perhaps remake it?

 

EDIT: Don't do it.

Considering you're using Paint.Net, it's not too bad.

I myself used to use PDN about 3/4 years ago, I use Photoshop now and Ps does allow you to do more, be more precise with what you want to do etc. but this is definitely a good start.

 

Having something like a logo is always nice, as a replacement for a name in Display Pics etc.

Keep working at it, and in time you'll be able to make all sorts, and if at all possible, consider using Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator.

You'll find that experimenting with different features, filters & add-ons (which you can easily find online for PDN), will allow you to see what sort of things you like, and might want to get better at. Perhaps one of the great things about doing GFX work.

Anyway, Keep it up man!

thank you for taking the time to review my logo and edit it, I agree with everything you have said haha, i really dont know why there is aliasing and it could be a lot better overall i know. I might re-make it and try and improve the quality but it was just a quick thing and didnt take too much time, maybe me just rushing but next time if i do make a new one i will learn from this one :)

thank you and Yeah i thought it was good for paint.net and i will definitely keep working at it and improve for if i make a new logo or banner but the only problem right now is that my computer is 32-bit so i cant get any good software yet because it requires 64-bit so i will stick with paint.net for a while and if i get more into this kind of stuff i will look at a new computer and software :)

I looked up some ways to get rid of aliasing and there isnt many because it is meant to happen in the software, i added a slight blur to the whole picture, does it look better now?

It's definitely improved, and looks better than those rough edges you had previously, all I'd mainly suggest is to try and straighten that top triangle, so it's in line with the line along the side of the main body of the "j".

So if you were to put a line against the edge of the j, it would be in line with the triangle you have at the top if you get what I mean?

I was referring to this line here.

FaUjiaq.pngAs you can see, the line isn't straight on your triangle, its slightly off.

ohh ok, i will make the changes another time, things are so much harder to do in paint.net and did you pay for photoshop or did you get it for free (just wondering, i wont be able to get it either way)

 

 

edit: i actually give up with this, the aliasing is really bad and i might just restart the whole thing and start another day-_-

Ok so i just tried to fix it and start fresh but the aliasing is still there and is very noticeable, if anyone could fix that and the top of the J that would be so great because i spent hours trying to fix it and it turned out horrible, thanks :)

GFX work can be a pain in the backside, trust me, I know :p

It's okay to take a break here and there, but don't give up. Keep working at it, try different methods to find what suits you best, and of course to get different results and see what you like most when doing projects etc. You can learn on the go and develop your skills from there, don't give up though.
