Detail is Essential

Posted 23 August 2009 - 06:41 AM

Hi,

Just testing out my detail in graphics so, I decided to draw, from scratch, the Nike tick, from memory. Currently it looks quite close to the real thing.

Nike Official Logo:

My attempt:

What do you think?

Thanks.

It is very close to the Nike logo. The only difference I can see is that the right end of the logos. The Nike one is rounded at the end and yours is pointed. It wasn't really obvious at first and it took a moment to see it. Zooming in really showed the difference.

Yes I do see that small difference. It was hard to see that when designing as I started with a wire frame outline, then manipulating the edges to form a tick. Thanks for the input :^:

I'm not sure what it is but the right end still doesn't seem quite right. I took a paper CD cover and put it along the bottom edge. It seems that the angle change ever so slightly toward the end.

Yes I do see that.

Anyway, doesn't bother me too much as this was for fun. Just testing my memory and vector work, in a way. Thanks for the input, and even you going on about your eyes, you've still got the tricks of the trade :P

Thanks.

My eyes are more about color. I need a bit of contrast some time. That I and I use the zoom feature of the browser to zoom in nice and close and get a better look at things.

Good work, firebolt.
