    I'm trying to make a website logo, but i suck. I'm trying to make a paintbrush painting cream onto ice, producing ice cream (weird, i know). What suggestions do you have? Any help is appreciated.

    I suggest you buy an image that looks exactly they way you want it. If you calculate the time it takes to create a trully profesisonal looking image, versus spending $12-20 dollars, really the 12-20 dollars makes more sense.

    Besides, it is the image of your company.

    The image looks cheap and baldy made.

    Here are some nice images:

    i like the concept
    however, dont use a graphic image...its too busy for a logo...logos are need to be simple..use a vector image with a couple of colors for your logo....use and image like for a background on your website..or in the header...but not for the logo

    not only is it an odd concept but the pic you provided looks like somone scooping out an overflowing cat litter tray. sorry but thats what I see.

    a few rules with logos

    scale it down to 100x100 pixels - is it still recognisable?
    make a black and white version - does it still convey the same message?
    can is stand alone without either a company name/tagline?

    it will need to fulfil all of these requirements.

    simplicity is definitely the key. that image is all wrong and will only serve to make you (or your client) look unprofessional.

    Make a logo that has an impact at first glance with the audience. It will be a powerful weapon for use in battles.

    yeah right! It's the simplicity that counts! Logos must be simple enough to convey the products/message you want to reach into people mind or eyes!

    All tomfoolery aside, i really think your concept is too complex for a logo, unless maybe you can find a professional that really knows what they are doing to simplify it, vectorize it, and still have it be recognizable.

    Maybe consider some other plays... like a creamy ice-cicle? or an ice cube made out of cream... dripping? I really don't know.
