Something I've been curious about: do you have an "artist symbol" or "logo" that you can use to quick-tag your art?

Yes, I do! I will tell you what it looks like and how I developed it.
No I don't, because I don't need one.
No I don't, but I want one.

*"C @ t"

Since the name I go by is Catt, I started experimenting with ways I could write it, and came up with something like how I sign my stuff now. Because "@" says "at" but looks like an "a" I replaced the middle two letters with that. Then later I discovered that in parts of Scandinavia, they call this a "meow" because it looks like a curled up cat. And because all of my persona characters are related to cats, "Ct" became my way of signing things. When I update my avatar here, it will just be the "meow."

my icon is Lazy-cat. I developed him five years ago as a little cartoon baised off of a design I found on Iscribble... he's changed so much from then that I cannot even see the original reference anymore ;A; I use him to quicktag notes and drawings

:D This is interesting! 
I have one too. Its my initials of three letters in the form of something like the beginning letter of my usual online usernames... it also kind of looks like a flower.

Yeah... and the reason I do not use it on my drawings here? ¬_¬ Because I am lazy to take the extra half a second to put it on the front of the page I scan. Theres a deep meaning Im not willing to divulge.

To be honest, it's really a simple thing. It's a 7 with an exponent of "d," like this:

Close enough :iconcloseenoughplz:

Well, I used to when I was still posting here. It's still my avatar. It's pretty much the upper half of my face because I wear glasses like that and my long hair is always in a ponytail so you see a huge part of my forehead ^^;

Oooh, I see! There seem to be a lot of people who use their face / part f their face in their signature. Now that's something I would have never even thought of. :giggle:

I always write my name in the same way...
But I am planning on making one ^^

Probably a circle with a head or something...
Or just a symbol..
I don't even know D:

A good way to start is by doodling things with your initials. :nod:

Good idea :D
I will try that for sure ^^

Do you have any "logo"..?
Hardrockangel's avatar
I wouldn't exactly call it a logo, but I do have a symbol I use. The little skull-like thingy that is in my signature. c:

I feel so conceited when I think about signing my art, but if I had to I'd use my icon. It's a crab (duh) because my zodiac sign is Cancer and I used to have a pair of jeans I really liked which had a tiny one in place of one of the silver nails on the pockets (I based the design on it). The two 'L' are my initials (real name I mean) and they're placed like the '69' of the Cancer symbol. :>
Hardrockangel's avatar
I always sign mine because I've had my work stolen before. D:
And ah, I see! That's pretty cool actually! I'm a Cancer as well, but the thought of using my zodiac-sign never occurred to me. 

Very interesting story, thank you for sharing! :hug:

Also, right now, it's basically a rendition of myself. I might go for a more traditional like like my initials or something.
Hardrockangel's avatar
Initials are a good way to start. :nod:
I'm personally more curious about the symbols in some of the autographs, like the skull-one in mine or the musicnote in ^Lyricanna's as they say some more about the artist, in my opinion.

Working on mine but I do have one - just haven't used it beyond a few things I made for portfolio shenanigans and I might chance it in the future.

These are invaluable when posting your work online! Any simple photo editing software can do this! 

I always seem to change my mind on what I want, but here is a good example of mine right now: ftsarts.deviantart.com/art/But...

Have you tried doodling symbols to find one that sticks? c:

Here's my totally outdated logo that I use as a watermark : [link] It's pretty simple and it has my old username so that they know its me *v*
