My first logo

Brief from client 

I am a wannabe designer, I watched some tutorials and tried making a logo for my art social medias.

I thought I will get some great tips from professionals.

The fussy background doesn't help you at all. The font is outdated. There are so many awesome fonts out there! There are plenty of legitimate font sites out there. There doesn't seem to be enough value change, everything is pretty dark. Putting the outline around the font doesn't make it more readable, it clogs the spaces that would allow it to be readable and, as in the word art, the join lines are very distracting. Finally, since you are a pet artist, how about some real artwork? A pet artist logo screams to be hand drawn.

Thanks for the reply! I will try finding a nice font, and for real artwork, I couldn't figure a good idea. Maybe a simplistic cat face with text around it would work out?

What do you think of this?

Not a fan. Again, color contrast is an issue. The Eadward script isn't so bad, although it is really retro, but using it all caps for art just doesn't work. Perhaps it is best to ask what kind of pet art you do. That wasn't described in your brief.

I don't mind your comment, but please don't recommend dafont.com, especially for someone who doesn't know much about kerning, tracking, etc. That website is notorious for either having illegally obtained fonts or fonts with terrible kernings.

I'd rather you recommend losttype.com, fontsquirrel.com, pixelsurplus.com, free fonts on Behance, or Freebiesbug.com

You are correct, of course. I edited my post. Sorry.
