Ssssssssssssmoken'. When done right, gradents can really pop. I like the neg. space too. How did you do the yellowish hi-lights? I'd like to see a close-up of the snake if possible :).

It is gorgeous. I see you've done several snake logos (including an odd toad). Herpetologist maybe?

logomotive May. 29 '09

Thanks guys, but I'm so sorry to inform you but this is sooooo fake. I made it up. My acrylic paintings are also made up and I will have to tell my clients both who want to buy my paintings and or logos that they are fake and not for real. These are just optical illusions a figment of your imagination. If I had a REAl client not sure I can be creative enough to solve your problem. Sorry but this is just fake stuff.

%5ETHAT is about the rudest thing I have seen done. AT least give some background or link on this design. You take a full space image yet give no background. WHERE did this come from?, who did it come from?, and when did they do it. While this is a bit different not sure that's suppose to be a snake or what but please have a little courtesy when posting. RUDE.

%25@logomotive- first of all, I wasn't disrespecting you with my previous post. I was going to leave a note to inform you of what I found on the web but I had to step away from my pc really quick last night. I wasn't insinuating that you ripped this design. Actually I meant to say that YOU got ripped. Relax baby...you're still THE logo-branding god:-)%25

fishinapond, Ok but just so you understand where I'm coming from. This particular design was blantantly ripped and tried being sold on crowdspring as a winning entry, I have battled this for a few months. Hey if someone did something like this concept prior to me I'm the first to admit and remove and it has happened before.
