WagaWiki's Logo Thread

Postby clay » Thu 08.17.2006 9:06 am

Paul created an image for the WagaWiki logo. I thought we should open up this and all other submissions for community review. Maybe we can then put a poll up to vote for everyone's favorite.

Here is Paul's entry and we shall call it #1
#1) Image


Working off Paul's example, I thought about adding the Sharaku (I think that was the artist) guy. It shall henceforth be called #2 (see a pattern?):
#2) [img]/images/wagawiki1.gif[/img]

But it is too wide so:

#3) [img]/images/wagawiki2.gif[/img]

Please post your entries and number it #4, #5 and so forth.

I will update this page with the correct size. I think the biggest point is the width. It looks like it should be no more than 150 pixels wide. #2 is too big for example (Although I think it would be alright reduced)

Any ideas?

Wicked!

Out of the ones so far, I'd definitely vote for Sharaku- shame it's too wide. I'll see if I can submit my own one for fun. P)

:( No luck. The image file was the wrong type. Aah well, your entries are better anyway.

Can you save it as a Gif or JPG? (or even PNG)

If you don't have a place to upload it to, just email it to me and I will put it online. clay@ (you can guess the rest)

for optimal placement, the logo is supposed to be 135x135 pixels.

I will try a few other things as well. Do we have a time limit?

I want to add that charcter that you guys are adding but I don't know what it is or how to type it.

Hey, nice images!

Keep in mind:
1) 135x135 pixels (although that can be fixed if you already made the image)
2) the background. Right now the background is a grey. If you make it a transparent gif, you don't have to worry how it will go with the background. (take a look at the wiki to see the color)

It's Waga ;)

Thanks for being so helpful Clay. I don't need a place to upload, I simply can't save it as GIF or any of the others. Is there no way around this? My image probably isn't good enough but I'd love to participate all the same.

I just noticed that size limit after I made it.

It seems a transparent background would be preferable with the location, I will try some more things.

You don't have any image editing software? What software are you using? If it is Paint and you saved it as BMP, you can email me that and I can convert it. :)
