Volks Logo Tutorial
Today I’m going to teach you how to recreate the Volkswagen logo. Now generally, logos are made in a scalable vector graphics program such as Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape so that logos can be resized without any quality loss, but for the sake of this tutorial, I will show you in the Gimp. This tutorial is based off of a Photoshop tutorial by Dr Diablo at RepublicOfCode.com. Let’s get started!
Create a new rather large, transparent document in the Gimp. I made mine 1000×1000 at 300ppi. Change your foreground color to #82B2E0 and your background color to #012B62. Create a new layer. Select the ellipse select tool and, while holding shift, create a circle taking up the majority of your document. Fill it with out background color.
