    I never thought I'd have something to post here, but I do. I'm trying to develop my own, semi-unique, graphic to fit on my Tundra's rear quarter (it's an extended cab pickup) windows. The current image dimensions are 1.39 inches (3.52 cm) by 7.34 inches (18.65 cm).

    [​IMG]

    Well? It is simple, which is what I wanted, and monochromatic. I want it to print out white so it stands out against the tinted glass on my rear windows.

    I suggest working in ah igher resolution. It makes the graphic bigger on the computer screen, but you can still have it at the size you want when printing. If you are using photoshop you can change the resolution when you make a new file. The autobot logo is a bit rough and ah igher resolution can help that.

    And, the latest one that I like the best so far...

    Please, feedback would greatly be appreciated. I've been working ALL day on the perfect graphic to go on my side windows. I want something that incorporates the Autobot logo, but uses in such a way like a company logo would.

    Here is what I've gotten it down to...

    [​IMG]

    ALL of the work so far has been done not in Photoshop, but with MSPaint. Once I get it set, I plan on cleaning it up and properly scaling it with Photoshop.

    Then final length of the object will be eight to ten inches to fit on my windows.

    Here is the latest design, that I like, but I think it needs to be tweaked a bit.

    I think I would try to integrate the autobot symbol a bit more with the text. Perhaps make it the same height as the rest combined, or to have something continue past the autobot logo to clearly identify it as part of the graphic. I like the last "racing systems" best, probably for this reason.

    Or perhaps have the text and the logo leaning (don't rotate the logo) in the same angle?

    Even with all of the graphic work, I think I like the "Racing Systems" one the most. I'm revising it now, and will post it soon.

    The Autobot logo is at the end, not at the front.

    Hmm....
    #7 - FINAL ONE

    Okay, which one of those three? I based number seven off of the positive response of number two, posted in the first post.

    I got a soft spot for 6 just because it looks different. 7 is nice as well, I think some color would look nice on any of them however, that is completely upto you. You could also add a gradient to it to make it look more like the TF logo's i'm not sure how that would stand out on your truck but it's just a thought.

    I like what you have however can you lower the font so that its flush with the right cheekbone and drop it one font size or maybe even 2? seems a little big to me.
