Big Moose Saloon logo

Howdy Ranchers!

Just wondered - do you have any high-resolution logo of Javaranch/Big Moose Saloon?
I wanted to set it as a wallpaper, but the best one I could find is 190 x 225 px, which doesn't present too well.

No replies, so I've created the vector version of Big Moose by myself based on the one from the forum.

Althought it is not perfect and it lacks the feeling of the original one, it should be some starting point.

If someone is more advanced in vector graphic it would be nice if he might help to make it more accurate :-)

Sorry! I know this discussed as part of our world domination, but it looks like no one got back to you. As far as I know the raster image is the best we have so vector would be very welcome if you would care to share.

Sure I will :-)

The first attachment in my previous post is a *.svg image. Unfortunately I couldn't upload it with *.svg extension, so I've changed it to *.gif (but the filetype is of course still SVG).

This is the source file I created in Inkscape. Unforunately I know only very basics of vector graphics, so I don't know how to achieve this hand-painted effect which you can see on the raster image nor how to add some more details to it.

Hope someone will help, as I think that the vector version of Code Ranch logo might be useful in the future :-)

I suppose if I dig through some old backups I can find the original - which is probably bigger.

The year was ..... 2000 that I did that. And added the fly to the smaller one.

I think my wife could be persuaded to do this PM me with the details please (we can exchange email addresses and that way you can send the correct formats etc).
