Blog 4, Creating A Logo With AutoCAD


ZettaByte Logo

Lately, I have been in the process of creating a solo-band called ZettaByte, and I decided the best way to start would be by creating a logo.  This was a new challenge for me;  since I don't consider myself to be extremely artistic, I have never tried to create graphic artwork before.  Having hardly used software for graphic artwork, I decided to start with software that I was familiar with...AutoCAD.

AutoCAD is a CAD (Computer Aided Design or Computer Aided Drafting) software application that is used for 2D and 3D design and drafting.  I am currently pursuing a degree in AutoCAD, so I am very familiar with its tools.  After deciding the basic look I wanted, the process was fairly easy and straightforward.  I made some lines, placed some offsets, added a few fillets and chamfers, and voila!

Though I could have changed the line thicknesses and colors in AutoCAD, it was much easier just to save the file in a format that Inkscape (a vector graphics editor application) could open and thus edit it further there.  With Inkscape, these changes were much easier to make.  After modifying the logo, I used Inkscape to export it to a PNG file, 5000X3000px.  All done!

Now that I have the raw logo image, I am able to just place it on top of any background and choose the theme for it that I desire.

Blog 2, Good to Be Back!

Hey, Everyone!

It has been quite a while since I have posted anything on my blog, in fact this is only my second post so far here on Callizera!

Anyways, recently I have upgraded to a newer, more powerful camera, the Canon EOS Rebel T4i.  Though my previous camera (Canon Powershot G12) had amazing features and was very versatile for a compact digital camera, I wanted to get something a bit more powerful.

Recently I went on a trip with my family out to the Midwest and was able to take many pictures with my new Canon, so I am hoping to include some of those pictures in my next blog...soon.
