Nice. Bugs give most people the creeps though. Even so, this is stylish. :-)

Yea, I agree, the shadow is off. Fogra, have you tried starting the shadow from the bugs legs?

I like it. **The shadow on the mantis doesn't add anything and there seems to be a lack of hierarchy between the lettermark and icon. One or the other needs to be dominant. Just my thoughts.

I don't mean to be a pest, :) but the shadow needs to go or be changed as suggested above.

@gthobbs: Is that a line from A Bug's Life?

Why would you want to ask yourself?

No. I was too afraid to ask gthobbs. Was that a literal question, Roy? If it wasn't, then I'm sorry :)

That's okay - I usually walk into those ones.

No, it was a completely random line. I had just watched Dan In Real Life. Steve Correll delivered this line during dinner to much the same confusion. Pardon my lack of continuity :-)**

I'm sure I've seen that image before... is it a trace? The one I've got in mind was a wallpaper, white background. Maybe from stock.xchng? mandolux?

I like this. The shadow looks funny, though. Maybe a blur on the edge?

This looks great. I would loose the shadow though.

You should take a look of this, and maybe reconsider your carer as a graphic designer, copy is not an option**http://www.youtube.com/watch?v%3D-SkQZf1cJMA**http://www.mantisproducciones.cl/*

I forgot, the vectorization is not good, i know maybe you take this image from www.sxc.hu (as i do) but i tried to vectorize it in a better way

@dromecin: Before you started accusing me of copying your work you should get your facts right beforehand. I was never aware of your logo, even though I did do research before I uploaded it and I do apologise for any upset caused. Oh and I'm quite happy to continue with my career as I'm sure that you are also :)

The shadow looked great when this image was a thumbnail, but when I clicked on it and saw the enlarged version, it was kind of off-putting. Nice job, though.

Squish that shadow and the wordmark vertically, then you're done.
