It's another version of the PSP. The previous set was iconic, with no markers on the buttons, a flat color fill, and thick outlines to accentuate the recognizable shape. This one, on the other hand, is highly realistic. Basically, I wanted to get it close enough to the real thing to where Sony would consider suing me for trade dress infringement (but not quite close enough to where they'd actually sue me - the Sony and PS family logo have been omitted).
The SVG was created from scratch in Inkscape, with no images imported for tracing or any other purpose. I did have my own PSP by my side to reference.
The SVG is licensed under a Creative Commons license as stated above. Click the Download button on the side to get the editable SVG file. You should be able to edit the file in any editor that supports SVG files, but this designer recommends Inkscape.
Enjoy! I put a lot of work into this one, so if you like it, or if you use it in a work of your own, I'd love a comment.
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]

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. -------- 99% Paint.NET | 1% Photoshop -------- Resolution: 2560 x 1600 pixels -------- Stock Photos: mountains: [link] | fence and grass: [link]
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.
I took this shot earlier, when my friend Chad and I hiked to the top of Mill Hill and took some shots. Experimenting with my new Camera. It's not really a Sundial, but it kinda looks like one at first. Really, it's this big stone slab thing and on top is a compass and then an arrow pointing to the mountains around telling you the name and the distance from Mill Hill to them. Don't ask me why, but it's nice and it made a good shot. Please, feel free to leave comments.
