Flashy deviantART Logo by BoffinbraiN Flashy deviantART Logo by BoffinbraiN
:devart: deviantART loves you.



I have seen a few remakes of this emote, but none that I like yet. In most cases the shape of the logo is wrong. So, I decided to make my own. Static just won't do any more, so once again I've crafted a flashy but subtle animation. :)



V1.0 2007-04-24 Shine and flash separate.
V1.1 2007-04-25 Shine and flash combined, and small changes to outline and fill.
V1.2 2007-04-27 Added a slight emboss effect to the border (=Sgtgrandpa) and smoother curve (=Mrichston).
V1.3 2007-09-26 Altered logo shape to remove gap on lower bridge.

Yes, as long as you have a page that gives credit for emoticons and their creators.

Very crisp, and very clean! As well as a nice, mostly subtle flash. Nice work. :thumbsup:

:giggle: Looks nice. Maybe remove the shadow on the one next to the heading. Did you know that you can remove the shadow by just using an image tag that points to the image? :nod:

I did get one img src tag to work great...my main page...but the same code is failing on the other journals...hmmm
I just updated all journals to have the same code I got from ya for the club.
Odd how it is not working out on the rest...I will toil on it a bit more.
I get what you mean by image source.. img scr..durrr :P
Should have thought of that like years ago :giggle:

great logo... animation is great, its probably just me but the middle upper portion of the logo looks a bit chopped than curved?

If you're used to seeing the deviantART logo in its more traditional semi-circular form, then I guess it would look a little squashed to you at first, but compare it to the little 'dA' button in the top left. :nod:

Your right, with art going all 3dish, DA needs something like this now.

Yes they are.
Not sure if you meant this to ask my input.
Want to hear it here it goes.. :)

If it had more of a 3D effect, that would be the top of the barrel, like a bevel and drop shadow effect like thing.
I know nothing of what you do, but that is the best comparison I can think of to say what I am seeing in my head.

Neat idea. Sometimes it's best to go for the solid, flat outline, but I'll have a look into that.

I've only seen 2 that I like. This, and =arrioch

One thing I suggest though is that the shine is a bit too sudden, and maybe make it more right after the light finishes the dA logo?

I didn't say that you copied my shine, but, that maybe subconciously, my shine on them, made you want to do a better shine. It is better, btw.
