That's interesting, it comes up as black on very dark grey on my Android tablet! Thought it wasn't there ar all for a moment.

Must play with it, - tomorrow, too late now.

Well, I did download it - then it changes to mid grey on almost black. Ooer.

Try the red one:

I compressed this file, so it's much smaller.

I just spotted the fish on the fork handle. A great subtle detail.  :thumbsup:

The emblem is engraved into the handle.

Can we have a rainbow one please?

And I think we'll name our logo 'Rosy' after Tiktaalik roseae: An Extraordinary Fossil Fish

So we need a Rainbow Rosy :)

I like "Rosy". There are so many possibilities for a rainbow PNG; do you have any examples you like? These came up in a Google search.

I was thinking of making Rosy a rainbow on a clear background rather than a rainbow background. Does that make sense?

That's a lot better size wise. Could we have a compressed black one please?

You mean the lines of the current image filled in with rainbow colours? Perhaps you could do a rough sketch to show me.

hermes2015, I agree with Recusant, you have captured the, "subtle detail," but will you be able to capture the, "member"s 'essence'" the way BP does? You know, that one thing...Bruce's halo, BCE's cat, my,  psychedelic spoon, etc., or will you work with BP, because he has done a great job so far.  :smilenod:

 :notsure: Maybe Dragonia doesn't agree with me, but that's OK.

BP, Marvin, The Magic Pudding, etc., they are (he is) a loved and respected dinosaur, here. :grin:

I"m just saying.

That's exactly what I mean. The current black/red logo done in a rainbow.

No I don't think that's viable,
I'm seething with resentment,
ready to fork or spoon his eyes out.
Please don't tell him or anyone though.
It's not really true, just joking,,, mostly.
Certainty disturbs me

No, no. Please don't see this as a "competition". I wouldn't dream of even trying to do anything in Bad Penny's class, let alone to usurp his role as cutlery creator at HAF. I don't have the creative imagination to make cutlery for HAF members - I know my limitations. What I'm doing is simply using the HAF emblem to improve my 3D skills in an attempt to take my mind off the hip replacement due at the end of May.

Here is an attempt. Not sure how successfully it will scale down to a small image, though. It may end up looking too busy.
