If you post the image, maybe we can tell you how to go about making it. Personally if I was making a Logo for myself I wouldn't make it using a pixel based program.

I would use a vector based one, so that I can resize the image to whatever size I want without any pixelation.

Inkscape is what I would use. Illustrator if you already have it.

THIS is what I have so far, its pretty rough. If you like the way its going I'll put more work into it and clean it up, add more detail etc. Keep in mind of course that the gradients, colors, and hair strands will not show in a black and white conversion. I can give you just the line art if you want.

PS: I tried attaching the file to the post but it didn't seem to want to work right (probably because of my slowwww slowwww internet).

EDIT: Ok so i guess the file did attach itself? I don't know, I'm new.

PPS: Sorry her doesn't look very good, like I said if you like the way its going I'll fix it.

As an after thought you could download Inkscape its a free application for creating vector graphics and you could read some tutorials so you can learn the software and create things yourself so you can get the exact results you want.
