I made this smooth, crisp, vectorized Marathon logo with MS paint and a little extra magic. So I'll explain it in a 1950's style commercial.



"Why, blooregardo, how did you get that image so smooth, crisp, and vectorized?"

Well, Johnny, that's what I'm here to tell you.

"You didn't buy photoshop, did you?"

*laughs* Of course not Johnny! This method will save you time and money!

"So you used the GIMP"

Time and money.

"Golly, blooregardo, then what else?"

Well, Johnny, log on the world wide web and visit this webpage! Oh, and with parent permission, of course!

"Gee whiz, blooregardo, thanks!"

No problem, Johnny!

Lol, nice way to describe it. And cool website. For windows users who use paint and have the problem of nothing resizing right.

You're symbol is fine, but it's not cool, you see? It may a smooth, crisp, vectorized Marathon logo like you said, but doesn't have the, how should I say it, the feel. You see, the bottom line is you made it in Paint. I have one question for you: how does that make you feel? I used to adore paint, until I saw the light: The Light of Photoshop! I'm ashamed of you! Photoshop is an efficient, quality product, with millions of high quality tools. Your friend Johnny is doomed. That poor soul, you have betrayed him! This thread isn't useful to artists. Actual artists know better than to use that, that abomination! This thread is a death trap! I hope I have made myself clear.

Heh, photoshop is in an entirely different league, lightyears ahead of Gimp. Gimp is simply a good replacement for paint, thats all.

Johnny goes to hell for not spending the $630 and buying a real program.

Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?

It's squished, the inside circle isn't in the right place, and it's not centered. And it's the wrong shade of green. Good job, loser.
