Artists Comments:

My entry for the deviantART design battle, I don't think I stand a chance in terms of favs or popularity if that's how they're going to judge, but I thought I would try anyway.

I wanted to make a simple yet complex design, more and more detail revealing itself the closer you look.

Featuring wings to represent how your imagination can soar to new heights if you let it, the pen and fist to represent the marriage of the two through your application of choice, like DA always says, "where art meets application" hence my un-imaginative title lol

So that was my idea that I went with and this is the result.


Every element was made from scratch by me, exhausting I must say especially "tetris-ing" the birds together to form the wings, but worth it in the end I think.

I altered the DA logo to make it more sharp on the corners to match the rest of the designs sharp angles.

And the D & A are made up entirely of "D" & "A" shapes/text, as is the fist but using the word "deviantART" in various fonts.

I added some closer detail examples on the bottom too.

I also added some colour choice samples, but DA can choose any colour they like if this design appeals to them


Any feedback/comments are welcome and appreciated

Cheers.

Jay.

whoa awesome. though slightly cluttered, since its within a frame, it's nice on the eyes.

i really prefer the color-gradients for this one like that green on white, or the light green on green. will there be other color combos? you can work so much with this one in terms of colors.


pretty rad.

I love every element in this. But especially the pen, the fact that you made it out of all those small pens and the head out of all those small penheads - just brilliant.

two things you might consider if you are to revisit the design:
1) the wrist (top of the dA logo) appears to be too thick.
2) on the left wing where the birds breaks free; the lower gap, right about the tip of the pen, seems too big compared to the campactness of what follows. Maybe simply leaving the bird you took out there might fix that; so the birds only breaks free further on that "feather".

None the less: Beautiful design! I would love a t-shirt with this print :aww:

Someone finally noticed that oversight on the left wing lol, so much going on I did happen to miss that before uploading, though I fixed it now, shame it didn't edit this version too, only the original changed, no biggie.

Cheers for the feedback :)
