The fur around the edges reminds me of a koosh ball...

The brushed steel is a little powerful (compare it to Apple's) but the crochet-ey tigerapple is sweet. Mad photoshop skills.

The shag apple is HOT! I would do something with the background though, like tame it down or change it.

Any ideas?

I agree, the background brushed metal shouldn't be too "brushed". Take a look at Safari or iTunes to get a better idea how Apple has it.

How did you get the fur effect in Photoshop?

...when I first saw this it reminded me of a sticker on a train window - going through a tunnel.

I think the logo is wicked, just not sure about the brushed metal look background. I suppose thatīs noise with motion blur? It should have much finer grain.

I would suggest ditching the brushed metal background all together, instead focus on something that could complement the fur logo style-wise.

Good job!

he he. koosh ball. :) haven' seen one of those in ages.

nice wall as well. i would have to agree toning down the background as well, perhaps a lighter tone of grey? and a bit more blurred?

and how did you make that furry apple? entirely in PhotoShop? some neat-o plug-ins?

I think it would look really cool in like a jungle setting. Kind of a Tiger OS in its native environment sort of thing.

You should add a little dancing Axl Rose with a text bubble saying "Welcome to the Jungle."

Now you're on to something! The jungle is way better than the metal. Now, just jack the famous apple font, "Garamond (http://www.dafont.com/search.php?nq=1&q=apple&Submit=+Go+)" (scroll down a hair) and put the "Welcome to the jungle" in white lettering so you can read it.

Getting close to total awesomeness. Maybe you could put it on the ground in the jungle, with a little stream of water in front of it reflecting. That would prove some mad PS talent...

As the one to first suggest the jungle theme, I have to totally agree with this. That would be very, very cool.

along with this, also maybe have a branch or something vut in front of it to give it a feeling it's part of the environment

A good tiger needs some serious teeth...and maybe a tail

I would like to see it more fuzzy... more like a koosh ball where it hangs out from the right and left a little more.

I like the "Welcome to the Jungle" look much better than the first two looks. :D It would totally crack me up if the apple had a tail! :p

I still think my Axl Rose idea would make it totally "dangerous". hehe

All very good ideas. I live in New Orleans, and right now Ivan is on its way. I will work on this while the power is probably out. Thanks to all!

Good Luck With Ivan, I hope you dont get to omuch flooding.

I agree the one with the jungle background and the welcome to the jungle phrase is the best. I'd say make the font Garamond (as was said before) and take the hair off the Welcome to the Jungle part. Maybe same colors but no texture, or perhaps just a solid color.

Also if it isn't too much trouble could we get one in 1920x1200 (or at least the same widescreen aspect ratio)? :)

Here is a wide version (1920x1200)

OMG KOOSH!!! I can still remember the song they had on the tv add here in Finland.. it was terrible! I also remember how I never had the guts to ask for one from my parents because I already knew they wouldn't buy me one (I was 7 or 8 back then).

edit. oh and I'm eager to see those pictures too... so please put them back online! thx

It sounds as though Apple legal is very busy once again. So I guess that we will have to get our next fix of Tiger at MWF on January 11th.
