Well, "a few days" wound up meaning "almost two weeks". What can I do?
I can offer my attempt at a passable emblem:
Before anybody starts poking holes in my meager art skills, I'll address what I see as the main issues:
1) Obviously I didn't nail down the transparency 100%. That's easy to fix.
2) I'm not sure how to address her skirt near the bottom of the frame.
3) And most importantly, I don't have a lot of experience with digital coloration. I *might* be able to produce better colors given some time, or I might just make a pig's ear of it.
What you see doesn't need to be the absolute final product, I'm more looking for validation of the design ethos in its own right.
