molumen 2006-12-02 20:40:26 This is a nice piece of clipart, Lakeside, thanks for posting it here. I optimized it a little bit, because its size was too big. This was caused by objects with huge amounts of nodes. By simplifying them, I reduced the file's size and kept the shape of the objects. Also, I added some keywords, so the file will be easier to find :)

molumen 2006-11-29 12:47:31 Hello, I updated the snowflake clipart a little bit, by resaving it in Inkscape. The SVG code is now hopefully a little better (Corel has poor SVG export). Also, I added keywords, enlarged it and reduced the boundary box. Thanks for sharing this clipart Lakeside! :)

johnny_automatic 2006-11-29 06:24:43 I'm not familiar enough with Corel draw to know the reason but when I open this in Illustrator the snowflake is outside of the boundary or frame marks. So this ends up with a lot of white space. It might not even display right in some applications. But there is no embedded jpeg.

TheresaKnott 2006-10-13 11:18:10 I also rate according to the usefulness of the clipart but also as a reward for the skill that went into it. I rate the cliparts as finshed items. I don't think of them as starting points for some fiddling about to get them perfect. My personal system goes like this: 3 = A perfectly fine piece of clipart, although not one that I myself would likely use in a presentation. 4 = A piece of clipart that I would be happy to use myself, as is, in a presentation. 5 = A superior work. Something that I admire, Something that I could learn from. They do not need to be complicated. In fact I often like very simple clipart. But they do need to look stylish. It's very subjective, I know. 2 = If work looks amaturish to my eyes, I rate it as a 2. 1= I rate clipart that I feel needs to be removed altogether as 1. There would have to be something seriously wrong with it for me to do that. I've only ever done it once, but spam messages, broken stuff, abusive stuff that sort of thing. I think having a guide to work to helps me stay consistant.

bpcomp 2006-09-27 13:57:07 Really nice looking, I would recomend for usability that you break them in too two files and remove the shadow by the wheels. Most clipart users are not going to know how to use only one of them and at middle sizes the shadow can become a distraction.

tiothy 2006-09-20 09:23:06 The coloring definitely brings some life into what was otherwise a rather flat piece. My only thought is that the shadows don't look quite correct, but with no other strong lighting on the rest of the piece, I don't know that there is a better way to put them. Adding some shine and a less severe angle to the lighting/shadows could bring a really dynamic feel to this.
