Creating a 3D box Image in Gimp
Someone wants me to make them a logo for their website, and they want a "Backspace" keyboard key underneath their text.

Is it possible to create one of these "Backspaces Keys" of my own, or is it only possible to copy one from Google somewhere and render the image in Gimp to make it look more like a logo? How do I go about doing this in the Gimp format if it is possible?

Thank you

The reason I have the top is I want the cap to have a bit of an indention like a real keyboard key. I know how to manipulate it to make it look like it is popping outward and rounded like I button; by feathering the edges with the Rectangle Select Tool when creating the selection. How do I make it go the other way so the color gives it more of an inverted perspective?

When you say blur "40px (& 20px)" do you mean a Gaussian Blur?

RE: Creating a 3D box Image in Gimp
I want to make the key a shiny black color. How could I go about making it black and still making it appear 3D? Because the base is already black, how could I keep the top of the key black and still show it like it is "on-top". Also to add gloss I am thinking to add a light gradient to just a bit of the edges and using white vs the black. Should make it rounder looking? Does this post sound like I am exhausted? Because I am.
