    A slight reworking of the G1 logo. I was mainly thinking of the live action movie when I did it: I wanted to evoke the "spirit" of G1 without making it a pure copy, and to get away from the cartoon's squeaky clean image.

    If you like it, all well and good. If you hate it, sit back safe in the knowledge that this hobby keeps me off the streets. :)

    Right there, sire. You can see the logo made from fabric invisible to fools, can't you? ;)

    Good job, Wreckie, but where is the Autobot faction symbol and its Decepticon equivalent?

    Not bad.... Not bad at all. I like it.
    Gives it a more modern look. :thumbs2: 

    Here is a title sequence samples, that I had created to my 3D starscream project.

    Nice, Iacon :) 

    I'm working on the insignia. There was one in there, but I wasn't really happy with it. It stuck out like a...um... sticky outy thing. I'll work on it. Many thanks for the comments and constructive criticism, everyone, it's always useful.

    Here's a slightly revised version, including the Autobot & Decepticon insignias. I'm still not exactly happy with them yet.

    I've also toned down the blue and red a bit more, just out of personal preference. I was trying to make it look as though - like the diecast metal toys - the paint had rubbed and peeled off after 20 years of use. Still Can't decide whether it's too much, though.

    Needs more color variation. I think what you want to is add the classic red and purple that the G1 logo uses, but have it desaturated a bit to make it seem more worn and used. You may consider it to even be chipped paint or a specular color reflection.

    Hmmm... a billion trillion dollars should just about do it. Or a bag of jelly babies.

    Or possibly nothing, because you've been nice to me :)

    It looks great, you just need to add a tiny "The" somewhere to make it complete.

    The faction insignias are blended very good, although I think the lettering looks a bit too worn. Still excellent work. Looks post-nuclear.
