I think you've done a nice job pal. Unfortunately it looks like you've used PS for the whole design.
I would have gone the vector route and used CorelDraw. But there's a nice quick and easy PS tutorial to make the wordpress logo over here if you want to give it a go how to make a wordpress logo
I don't know if you use Corel but if you would like me to make a CorelDraw tutorial to achieve the same results just let me know.

I nearly never used CorelDraw. But I can download and use to see how I can use it (I guess it gives 30 days trial). It will my pleasure if you can make a tutorial; please do only when you have time in hand

Fantastic tutorial It is something close what was in my imagination. But shortened the steps a bit for the circle parts, I dont know if its "against the rule". I made one, copied twice; made outer and inner slanted circles from it (stacked it below the ring facing us). I was not aware of this site; thank you very much for the link

soz if I go a bit quick in places but I wanted to keep it as short as possible
