PS Icon by eggy PS Icon by eggy
First of all: No, this is not an icon for Photoshop... ;p

This is a more recent attempt of mine at creating a logo for myself featuring my own initials. Even though it may look more like an icon, rather than a logo, it was definitely a good exercise for me. Everything you can see was created in Illustrator by me, including the letters/font I created just for this :)


Edits

Edit 1: A couple of small changes... The pencil's lead is darker now and a tad blunt. I have also made the metallic part holding the eraser less thick. The paper is practically the same except for a thin white line that I have added.

On top of this, I have also edited the e in my font. This was the main reason for me not to mark this as a minor edit. Seeing as I am considering to make a full custom font, I am hoping to get some feedback on it in it's current state.

Edit 2: I've completely redesigned the piece of paper and gave it a nice fold. The image still only consists of vectors. I also have been working on the font and here's a very early preview: [link]

Edit 3: I've changed the pencil's metallic part now. This should be my last update ;p

Thanks, it is only my second icon ever and the first one I made in Photoshop. I'm sure there's room for improvement but everyone has to start somewhere ;)

I really like the metal around the erase and the shading on the eraser and holder. Great work Pieter :thumbsup:

Weet ik nog niet eerlijk gezegd, waarschijnlijk zet ik hem gewoon gratis op deviantART, in ieder geval in één variant. Zo krijg je ook gelijk wat meer exposure. Hiernaast kan ik bijvoorbeeld een volledige versie (met verschillende diktes, italic, etc) te koop aanbieden :)

Thanks, I still want to remake the metal part of the pencil though... I think after that I'll finally be happy with it :) Seeing as I'll probably never use it as a logo myself, I could always upload it to the icon section later on :p Hopefully I'll finish the font too one day... It's just so much work, dammit

Honestly, a font can take several months to make, ;)

Look at my link in the description, I already drew all the lower case letters :p Converting it into a proper font just takes a lot of work and a very long time, though. Besides, I've been working on different things every day lately :p I can't finish everything at once though :p

nuff excuses bish, just finish it :P

I deal currently with about 3 clients a week, that 3 whole websites a week, and i work two normal jobs, as well ... lol

Lol, I would love to finish it, don't get me wrong. I'm just trying to figure out how to use the software intended for creating fonts at the moment. I've downloaded a FontLab demo but seeing as I've never used any software like this before, it takes quite some getting used to.

Normally I prefer figuring things out myself until I learn them the hard way, that's the best way of learning in my opinion. In this case, however, I'm going to look for some tutorials or basic information behind the creation of fonts. I don't want to make an entire font and then find out I've done everything completely wrong and have to start all over again ;p

If drawing the actual letters in Illustrator would be all I had to do, if only, I could finish a rough version pretty quickly. Unfortunately, it's not that easy :p

So, anyway, how is your progress coming along using Illustrator? ;p

I've already made some changes now. Maybe the metallic bit still needs a tiny bit of shine but I'll leave it like this for now. Making it thinner already made it look a bit more realistic :p

Very nice work.

And your own font is pretty impressive. Though as you remark letter spacing may still need some work. ;)

:iconeggy:
eggy Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2010
If you cover the d & e with your fingers, the spacing doesn't look too bad. It's mainly the e that seems to be the problem... :p
