This tutorial shows how to make a Batman logo using Bezier curves. Bezier curves are fundamental to vector graphics and Blender supports their use to create 2D and 3D shapes.

The Batman logo is created by tracing an existing logo but once created it is very easy to modify to make a new variation.

The tutorial shows how to make the logo into a 3D shape and into a 2D bitmap image.

The tutorial also has a quick look at the new Freestyle system that is designed for creating 2D drawings from 3D models but can be used with a 2D logo to take advantage of stylized lines; illustrating that Blender has the capability to create 2D vector graphics (and with the timeline, 2D vector animations).
