HQ icon
« on: March 05, 2013, 04:29:59 pm »

Hey all,

I'm not sure if this has been done before - either way I'm posting it for others to use.

Since the icons in Windows are getting bigger, the Anim8or icon looks very pixelated on the desktop or windows 8 start screen.

I made a vector version of the logo to use as a custom icon. I had to interpret a bit since the small version does not have many details.

old + new version (win8 tiles):


I included an adobe illustrator file for others to use - I probably missed some things (like te black line left of the foot, what is that?) so Please download it and improve it!

I hope itll be useful for some people - especially to keep the win8 start screen a bit pretty.

Hi $imon - nice work! I always took the 'black line' to be a toenail/claw/talon (what do robins have at the end of their toes?! Can't decide on the right word.) You can see there's a smaller one out the back too.

Thanks Mills,

haha I think you might be correct! But a toenail is not really uh interesting to look at, so I guess I'll just have to leave it out than ;)
