This is the new icon and logo artwork that I created for Paint.NET v3.0. I made it back in May 2006 using a combination of Paint.NET v2.6 and a very early, half-broken build of v3.0 (heh). The brush was authored separately and then imported, and was originally an 18-layer 2048x2048 pixel image. I experimented with having a shwoopy "reflection" on the top portion of the image, but ultimatedly decided against it.

The image that is in the icon is cropped from the top-right of a photograph I took up at Snoqualmie ski resort: [link] . It was then fed through the Oil Painting effect and some other adjustments were applied.

One of the goals with this was to have icon and logo artwork that was original, and that was available and useful for a wide variety of purposes. The old icon was only 128x128 pixels and thus could not be used very well in at least 2 scenarios: print (e.g., magazine), and Windows Vista (which wants 256x256 pixel icons). It also limited the size at which a full logo (which includes the "paint.net" name) could be authored at. Since I authored the icon portion of this logo at 2048x2048 pixels, I think I'm safe there for quite awhile :)

I think total time to create this was 30 hours.

Oh yeah, if you're interested be sure to download the full-size version. It's 4844 x 1216 pixels (the "full view" here is set to only 1600 pixels wide). I originally tried to upload this with a transparent background (yay for PNG), but apparently deviantArt doesn't handle that very well and put a black background behind it. If you want the transparent background instead of the white background, you can find links on the Paint.NET forum in the Pictorium topic: [link]

I should really start doing things other than advertisments.

Anyway, thanks to [link] for the line of icons at the bottom.

Well, this one took quite a bit of time for me, because I had to select all of the spaces in-between the fence part of the image. I also added some more fog to the image to make it have more of an effect. Also, I found a great stock of some mountains that fit perfectly.

This is a picture I took at a cottage on Pender Island. Just off the private beach it has. Lol, I was sitting watching the sunset when it dawned on me, I should take pictures.

This is the second version of my "C is for Curiosity" piece. I removed the black spots by popular demand, despite me liking the effect they made, I think it's important to consider other's opinions, so thanks to all for the feedback.
