They probably used a custom font for the logo.

The yellow writings look a little like the Consort RR (medium?) font, and the white font looks like a squashed Lucida Sans. Those probably aren't right but that's what I think they look like.

Well, I'm done. What do you all think?

I have another question. Is there some way I can increase that image to wallpaper size without loosing the quality? I know, dumb question, but if there's some kind of process I can go through or if any of you have any tips... well, I could use them.

I'd just try and resize it then sharpen it, then if that didnt work i'd trace it with vector lines. Other than that

You can't increase the size of an image without losing quality.

Pictures are made of pixels, obviously a big picture has more pixels than a small one. Stretching a small picture would increase the number of pixels but to "fill" them, the software would make an interpolation of the surrounding pixels, the result would be a blurry picture.

However, this picture is pretty simple and would be pretty easy to trace with a vector graphics program (Illustrator, FreeHand, etc.) or event the pen tool in Photoshop (P).

Vectors consist of coordinates and... well vectors, as well as color information. When you stretch a vector image the coordinates of the points and the vectors are re-calculated, the result is always crisp.

Thanks for the technical explination... I almost got my hopes up.



I just left the size as-is and added a classy Strong Bad to it just because of the fact that Mr. Perkins is a humungous Homestarrunner.com fanatic.

What do y'all think?

Take out the R with the circle around it, and it'll be awesome.

BROWN NOSER!!!

Well, you asked for it


And Shepherds we shall be
For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.

OMG Jedi Knight 4!!!

Mr. Perkins probably isn't a 19 year old female, unless he/she's a transexual. In any case, good luck with that...
