Hi Ronnie, First off, thanks for the precaution of not sending the attachment directly to the list. I asked Tuxfamily admins about this yesterday, and attachments up to at least 200 kB are OK. So in the future you can write directly to this list (though if you can upload to a ftp server, it's always best). If you have a bigger file, then just send it to me and I'll upload it. Also I'd suggest that you subscribe to this list: send a mail with subject "subscribe" to eigen-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx In my opinion, your sketch shows impressive cartooning technique! We already received sketches from one artist, David, and have been discussing them on this list, so I would strongly suggest that you read the mails that were exchanged on this list in the past two days, so you get a more precise idea of were we are going: see here the archive: http://listengine.tuxfamily.org/lists.tuxfamily.org/eigen/2008/03/threads.html and especially the thread "Owl sketch". In particular, looking at your sketch, I would like to make these comments: * I'd like the body to be bigger (or the head to be smaller) as currently the head/body size ratio really evocates a baby. I'd say that your sketch is top-class in cuteness but not funny enough. Also, I've been imagining our owl as being somewhat fat. * What I am looking for is an owl that "tries" to look wise and "professorly" but turns out to be looking foolish. * I would like our owl to look fluffy, like it has "too many feathers". * You can see such comments, and many more, in the "Owl sketch" thread * Conclusion / general comment: as I said, you have an impressive technique (are you a professional cartoonist?); but your owl, in its spirit, is quite far away from what I imagined. To all: it seems that we have great contributions from two artists. Do you see a way that we could use both? I hate having to choose... the good thing about code contributions is that I don't have to choose, here it's the first time I'm dealing with art contributions and it seems like a different story... To Ronnie and David: if, as I am afraid, we will have to choose between contributions from you two, then I would suggest that you stay at the sketching stage until we have chosen, so you don't turn out to have been losing (too much of) your time. Let's just discuss sketches for a few more days and we'll see which sketch captures better the spirit that we want our mascot to have! Cheers, Benoit ---------- Forwarded Message ---------- Subject: Eigen Date: Sunday 30 March 2008 From: Ronnie Tucker <ronnie@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: jacob@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Hi, I hope you don't mind me emailing you directly about the Eigen logo, its just that I didn't want to send an attachment to the mailing list in case it was stripped out. This is a photo of a quick sketch I had for an owl logo for Eigen. If you like it I can upgrade it to a proper logo in GIMP :-D All the best! -- Ronnie Tucker ronnie@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx www.RonnieTucker.co.uk Skype : ronnietucker Jabber: ronnietucker@xxxxxxxxxx Registered Linux User # 456627 Registered Ubuntu User # 18227 -------------------------------------------------------
