Its an SVG of three sweatdrops inside of this zip file, the forum just doesn't like taking SVGs as attachments.

ah i got svg figured out partially... but it opens in firefox.

Anyway,

I like (a) and (c) but they need to be a little but more curved back not sure how to explain it... but if you look at the helmet one, it gives a general idea of the shape im looking for rather than traight down. How do i edit these? good job on them btw. turned out much better than I would do it.

Actually, striaght down might be fine. hmm..

I'd suggest using Inkscape for working with SVGs. Illustrator will also work, if you have it. If you're truly crazy, even notepad will work.

ok... i have no idea how to work with svg files.

maybe i was wrong in requesting a vector. i just need something high quality that i can scale to the size i want. (not sure what that is yet as its based on trial and error.

So unless it can be edited in photoshop, i cant really use it.

But thanks for taking the time! its a good starting point for me.

Any chance of getting a large PNG that i could just resize?

Inkscape -> Open SVG -> File -> Export Bitmap -> Adjust "Bitmap Size" to an arbitrarily large number -> Export

Yes, I am a little more literal minded about the definition of vectors than most people. SVG = Scalable Vector Graphic in case you were wondering.
