Well this is a kind of vintage retro style logo / graphic which might end up as a T-Shirt graphic if people like it...! So feedback please and be as harsh as you like (I'll take it on the chin!) Oh and the "Made in Great Britain" font will either be replaced or I'll buy the full version if people like it!

I like it, you did a good job capturing the vintage feel. Mind if i ask what the font you used for Great Britain was? Also what brush did you used for the vintage feel, i have a few decent grunge brushes, but i am always on the lookout for more.

/thanks for your comment, the font is called "BILLY ARGEL FONT" its only a free sample font but will buy it if the feedback carries on coming in this good! as for the brush I used is a Dust one but to be honest, I don't know what one i used! If you do a google search you should come up with something, not sure where I got the set from either... I have also added in my own textures I've been making though so it's not just a brush! but I did find an awesome tutorial the other day for making your own textures [link] dead easy!

Wicked man! I will check the font out, i am severely lacking on that particular type of font.

Dust brush eh? Never thought to try that, i will look some up! Thanks!

BTW I am currently involved in the DA T Shirt contest and could use some help (a vote or some feedback). Click here to have a look and vote: [link]

No problem if you are not interested!

yeah look for dust and scratch brushes, really easy to make your own if you look around for tutorials and things though.

and I voted for you bud, good luck!

NP! i'm a anime freak. it's what i do for a living, i help companies come up with show ideas, and i get paid if they apply them, and most of the time they do. by most of the time,i mean 89% of the time. and it's usually 50 to 60 grand each. and i am asked around 16 to 17 a year to do this for these companies. that's 800k->1020k a year that i make.


as you may know. i don't currently have a logo for it on DA, but i'm workinmg one getting it on here at the moment. the logo is more for a band logo pourposes, it's like black label societies, and metalica's into one. i used the cross inside a circle, and used metallica's font style and twisted it to resemble dragonforce's and put the name of our band, on word on each part of the cross, name going clockwise.

our name is Dealer Men of Shadow Pains. the of is in a circle in the center of the cross.

this is just the general idea of the way it looks.

Wow, that's pretty frigging amazing! I have always loved Anime artwork, never been able to pull it off though myself! Your stuff is so amazing!

I'd love to help you out with your logo and from what you've described I kind of get what you're looking for... think I should be able to come up with something... Can you email me what you've done so far and I'll see what I can do? stevef808@gmail.com
DreamingWhisperer's avatar

i have a scanner, i might be able to scan it in so far.

I dig this hard! I'm into the vintage design. This has inspired me to put up a T-shirt design i did. Good job on making the distressed look!
