3 cheers for bananaraffe!
3 cheers for bananaraffe!
How about this, then?!
If we could get a logo in game for our gals and sundies it's be as the people from the posh part of Dublin say "totes-mazeballs".
Let's get it settled then and sent in to T-Ray yeees??????????
ha! If that isn't PERFECT timing i don't know. Let's get this done.
I vote for this one
Or the bananaraffe, but I actually prefer one above.
I like the 3-colour variants where the 'raffe and outer circle match.
Matching the VS logo to the teal on the Gal might be a good call. I think it would certainly look good as a decal then. Then going from there (another teal or green for the centre circle and something darker for the 'raffe and outer circle). Though I do wonder how much we can be sure vehicle trims will remain the same given the recent infantry changes. It might be a bit much to tie ourselves to potentially shifting SOE design decisions.
Of Pauly's lot 1,2, 11 and 13 are my personal favourite. Probably 11 tops.
As a suggestion, can someone hash out 11 but match the VS logo to the Gal teal and maybe shift the giraffe / outer ring to a redder purple rather than the near-navy (though similarly dark)? Thankyou.
AHMAGAD T-RAY! Would be amazing if we could get this in-game before other outfits (however you feel about Sony making money from selling it off the back of our efforts... my agent would be not be happy)!
A tool for pulling out game assets has been linked a couple of times in this thread but I cannot find it - what is it? Would be nice to get an exact reference for the Gal trim, rather than guessing based on screenshots.
I like that detail. I was thinking that,once colours are down, we should produce a series of images at different sizes. Everything from a website favicon to forum avatar/sig sizes through to banner sizes. Larger sizes can definitely have greater detail on them. I was going to try and come up with something that would work across both the logo and the font that was selected. What you have done above could easily be used on the eventual header font for the website.
The extractor can be found at:
The "RoyAwesome" guy took another guy's (open source) work and produced something that now displays textures & model internally rather than having to export everything just to look at it (and find out what the hell it is: some of the file names are wonderfully obscure). It's prone to crashing every now and then, but it's a nifty little thing.
If not the bananaraffe:
Then probably one of these two (though I think I'd like to see the purple that's in 1, in 11 too, as it's a little too dark to get the purple-ness across)
This one has great contrast, and yes it's the purple giraffe, but I find the lack of a different colour makes it quite ordinary and bland, to be honest.
I'm not for a minute suggesting we actually do the following, at least not right now, but I always thought the vanu logo could resemble a drinking giraffe with a little artistic license;
That's gorgeous, Rizlar. Actually makes me a lot more positive to that colour combination as well since it gives it added depth.
If this moon like texture spread across the whole cyan circle, I think it would be even better.
I still firmly believe we need to lose that little weird bit on the bottom prong though, because it is really out of place.
I see you snuck it back in :P.
14: It has the prongs ever so slightly different from the ring, which stands out quite nicely.
Attachment 3157I know people seem to be swaying away from the darker version, but I still love that dark shade of green!
15: Rizlars but with dark inner circle:
Attachment 3158Same as above but without a different shade for vanu logo.
16: Rizlars with slightly less bright cyan:
Attachment 3159 The only thing I currently dont like with rizlars previous is how bright the cyan is. This might not be the best alternative, but I just wanted to point out a less "brilliant shine in your face" alternative.
17: Again, variant on rizlars, ever so slight cyan difference.
Attachment 3165As above.
18: Version 12 but with a green ring/logo instead.
Attachment 3162 I really didnt like that light colour.
19: Version 13 but with brighter middle.
Attachment 3163 Last version 13 was a bit too similar in the middle.
20: Attempt to make an inverted purple center logo actually look ok
Attachment 3164 Surprised how much I like it actually.
I'd go for this:
Though I too would like to take away the little sprig. :) I'm happy with this one!
Yep, me like this one!
I do love the planet look, though im worried that the texture would get totally lost at avatar sizes, for example youtube, in which case I still think the plain cyan is quite bright.
I produced the other variants just to give slight alternatives on the ones that people had already mentioned, namely 1/2, 11, 12, 13. They are very slight variations, but worth looking at.
Yeah, those colours still aren't final. I'm still liking the different colour ideas people are still producing, it's nice to see completely different takes on a design that has become very familiar. The planet idea could work with various colours and was only suggested as a way to flesh out larger logos (not for decals).
