I think the logo that the forum currently uses will be ok. I think it would bw best to start working on character ideas and how the preexisting logo will integrate into the overall design.

the folks over at cgtalk.ru got some cool icons made ..
http://www.cgtalk.ru/forum/showthread.php?t=19217

but I think itīs easier to use our "cg-with a ring"-logo. we donīt have the time to find a sign that convinces everyone here, mh?

is that cgsociety-logo avaiable in a higher res or even in vector format?

CGmonkey
02-17-2008, 12:40 AM
Here's a highres logo http://equinoxx.cgcommunity.com/temp/cgslogo.psd (thanks to equinoxx)

I vote for designing a new one -- It's very important that any graphical element on the design looks good and the generic "atom" design is.. well.. hard to make it look fitting.

Digiegg
02-17-2008, 01:05 AM

i was all for just using that logo. But this competition is more "fantasy" themed and the cg society logo seems more sci fi. SO i think we should try and come up with something else.

MAV4d
02-17-2008, 01:48 AM
should we think about wich "side" or make a logo for each side, IE holy/dark/earthy/spacey? or what ever else there is?

Digiegg
02-17-2008, 02:52 AM
so we have to put the logo ON the model?
like can it be on the gun or does it have to be on the character? i saw that on the past models they dont really have logos on them..

Digiegg, this is the first comp were it seems that integration of team colors and insignia will count towards points. I look forward to seeing what we can come up with. I'll be back on the forums bright and early and working on some sketches tomorrow.


Saw this on the GA forums:

Team Colors are basically what your forum is laid out in: Could be a bit off on some of these but...

Polycount: Black and Green. Deep blue for accents
GA: Red and Gold
3dTotal: BlueGrey and white
CGTalk: Red, Black and White
CGLand: orange and white with black accents
CgTalk.Ru: Bluegrey with red and white
3dvf: white and silver
hxsd: orange, red and white

thats cool stuff. were not supposed to put a banner on our model though. Only a little Insignia. And i was re-reading the rules and we dont have to have one. It sounds like we need either an insignia or Team colors.


"Your character must possess your team's colors and/or your team's insignia (if your team has one). If you don't have the colors or the insignia located somewhere on your character, your entry will not make it into the top 50. Please represent your team properly. This is a team event so make your team proud!"


So what are are team colors? im thinking red and black

heavyness
02-17-2008, 04:44 AM
i would go with red and black as our main colors with the light and dark grays [like on our main page (http://www.cgsociety.org/)] as secondary. and just using the red and white "CG swirl" as our logo/emblem.

now you don't have to use these colors, but the logo/emblem should be somewhere. it could be engraved on some armor or something [let's be creative... that is what we do].


but that's just me, i want to hear what to hear what everyone else thinks.

I didn't make it for the model but rather just to help with the color scheme and style. I will try and work with the Logo/Emblem and see what I can come up with.

I whipped up a quick variation on the logo, what you think? It could use a few tweaks but I think it's kind of cool looking already.

eirenicon @ That's pretty sic looking. The sword is a tad generic but I like the overall feel and style of it. I think that's a few tweaks shy of being just right! I perfer the middle one, when you make a logo black like that, then it opens up a lot of stylistic ways too apply it (Change the color, use it as a mask, etc.) so whatever logo we use, I vote we make it all black like that!

Also, I like the black and red with grays for colors just fine. It goes well with the concept I have in mind so that's my vote for the final colors.

eiren, looking pretty cool man!
I think rather than a sword, you can place something more epic.
Like an acient artifact for instance. Just something more powerful (crazy hammer w/ spikes or some acient orb that's about to crack open with wrath of computer modeling power... i know it's geeky)
but i think it'll add a big punch to it.

Loukor

Nice work Tim! That looks awesome but I do agree that the sword could use some more "spicing" up.

KonL
02-17-2008, 05:28 AM
I really like that sword idea.



but what about making it a little bit more bit up and or used.



also maybe instead of it just being in the back ground why not make it look like it is stuck in the ground or something?

Just a thought...

02-17-2008, 08:55 AM
Nice stuff, Loukor!

My thoughts :

1. From the first set, i really dig the Red n Black one. Simple yet effective. 'Cept as the dudes said, a "cooler" looking sword/weapon/artifact would finish that baby off nicely.

2. THe second one, with the tribal-ish patterns is also sweet! ;)
Maybe that can be "cherry-on-top-ed" with a supercool artifact, almost watermarked in the bottom layer ?

I'm thinking that incorporating an artifact, preferably somthing that don't just look like a weapon might be best.

After all, thats what this war is about right ? The uber-powered artifacts that are being wielded by uber-power Champions !!

So, c'mon! Get on it, Loukor! .... no pressure... :thumbsup:

From the way the brief reads to me, though I could be wrong. It sounds like you either must be color coded to match your forum or have the insignia, they put and/or so I assume that means both or atleast one or the other.

I mostly just wanted to point out that it would probably be ok to not have the exact logo on every model. As long as they are coherient to each other. For example...if we used the atom symbol thing that is already there, one modeler could choose to use it exactly as is while another could do the eirenicon sword logo. It should be ok, since they are essentially the same logo, one is just altered a little, but they both have the CG in there, which seems to be what should tie our logos together(the kinda overlapping CG).

After all if you look at almost anything with an insignia(factions in games to real life companies and such.) there are usually different takes on it, but you always know it is representing that company or faction or whatever.

Basically what I'm saying is, the insignia should just be that shape of the CG, but be free to add or alter it to make it fantasy like or however you think it would fit on your design.

And from what everone is saying, I'm assuming our colors are pretty much definately red and black(with white/grey)?

how about turning the CGS-logo into a gyroscope (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gyroscope)? (or what's the word for that old astrologian gimbal-thingy measurement tool?) in my mind it'd be the perfect adoption of the atomic design to make it look mostly the same but totally non-atomic/modernscience/electronic and totally artifact-looking :)
I won't suggest a finished logo as I'd rather render my own end image but I do agree with having the same logo in terms of what it is.

02-17-2008, 01:44 PM
I really liked the feel of Alex Novos, but it's a bit much. We need to remember if people are going to use the logo it needs to not distract from the model or anything else, so a stark black and white contrast probably wouldn't be the best, us a grey instead of white and desaturate the red, that wasy it'd also look more natural on armor of people trying not to be seen, I've never seen special forces of any kind wearing florenscently saturated colors. So what if we just simplify one of the logos down.

Well i will add else some changes to this logo and make all lines clear and do some variants of it. The idea there will be transparent background so u will able to add it to any side of character, also this logo will be small and will not take attention from character design:) Lets work on it more pal!

First of all - nice stuff being contributed by all of you.

@eirenicon

I really like your initial design. My point would be to have a more simplified version of your CG and dagger/sword design. Less difficult forms. Maybe more in a direction of facepaint. Take some red and black paint on your fingers and do the logo like ancient tribes painted them on their body. For my taste of a simple logo there is too much going on in your design.

I'm going to make a logo later tonight.

- Alex Novo (Nice concept and creativity)

no, you don't have to wait to start your creation for a final logo [start now!]. remember, it could be a main part of your character [think Superman's logo on his chest] or it could just a small tattoo on the creature... doesn't matter.

Almost there, eirenicon!

(if you don't mind me being a back-seat artist) The sword just needs to be slightly...cooler ? ;)
Maybe just a bit narrower with slightly more exciting quillions (crosspiece) ?

OKMER, a few of your more intricate logos would look great on armour. :thumbsup:

And also, in general, I don't think we're going to see the Insignia boldly 'cept on stuff like shields, breastplates etc. Large objects.

So i reckon the main thing is that we keep the color schemes prominent (blank n red), with the Insignia being a little "extra" detail ?
(Depending on your char, of course).

Thanks to all you guys putting in the extra effort!

The right upper one might be a bit too much "tattoo"...

But i do agree and think that using simply the CGS logo as it is would be the best.
It's simple, it's clear and you can use it on all supports.Painted, scarved, bumped, etc...

Do we have to respect the white,red colors of the logo?or can we put it scarved in a sword for exemple?...

Don`t know if i have the time or character skill to compete in the WAR, but i`ll give my 2cents for the team logo:

Remember this is set in a post-apocolyptic time, where electro/mechanical technology has been literally `disabled` by the remnant energies of some previous ultimate weapon. It can be imagined that any logo/insignia would not be reproduced mechanically or otherwise, and that this and also the ethos of the rudimentary technology of the age would be represented and reflected in the design/symbolism of the thing itself..

Other than that i reckon the designs are fantastic maybe just a little clean-cut so far.

No you don't need to use same colors


I am sure people will change it's colors and whatnot to suit their character... I know I will hehe

I will probably engrave cabertevon's into metal for a piece of armor on my character, hence the reason I will modify it. I am not entirely sure yet. I'll see what I come up with this week. As for colors, we don't need to make our characters wear entirely black and gold uniforms. That would be extreme. Subtle things here and there could easily work.


as FredH said here and he has final word on everything

there is some discussion about it on GA

Also in case you didn't notice
in rules it says

Your character must possess your team's colors and/or your team's insignia (if your team has one). If you don't have the colors or the insignia located somewhere on your character, your entry will not make it into the top 50. Please represent your team properly. This is a team event so make your team proud!

So you don't need to have both colors and insignia on your character (but you can obvisouly).. just one will do and as it seems these team colors don't even need to be everywhere because it says somewhere, so that would mean that you wouldn't need unified color scheme for a whole character

there are a lot of nice ideas here although i have to say that everytime i see the traditional cgtalk logo i think it looks like electrons circling an atom which feels too "tech" to me. this is really bastardizing the logo, but here's my take on it. i'd like to see something that all "classes" and artifact types can incorporate easily (for example, although the skulls are cool, it doesn't seem like something a holy/light cleric would logically use). this is sloppy, but hopefully it prompts other ideas too.

The right upper one might be a bit too much "tattoo"...
http://www.imaginia.be/remkootje/test2.jpg


But i do agree and think that using simply the CGS logo as it is would be the best.
It's simple, it's clear and you can use it on all supports.Painted, scarved, bumped, etc...

Do we have to respect the white,red colors of the logo?or can we put it scarved in a sword for exemple?...

Lavenpillay:thx mate, that's what I had in mind actually when making them.




Dude.. the one with the wings is SICKKKKKKKKKKK. I vote that one for our logo.

I have a hard time seeing most serious contestants sticking to anything but something quite simple and quite close to the original logo despite many of these contributions being indeed great :)... on the other hand, the comradery-feel of deciding on someones suggestion is very neat!
but please take into account that everyone will want to depict their own fantasy and may just choose to use the colours in some way (seems the colours can also be just "somewhere" on the model) if the chosen team logo is too eye-catching. so must also try to get as many CGS-teammates want to use the logo.. not just the one who did it and anyone who can't do as well himself or doesn't mind whichever he stamps on there.
will make one too but must sleep now :)

and I vote for the poll being well into if not past the first week after the start of the war which is yet to come :) (other forums won't have a DW3 section until a few days).
no one will need the logo to start working and everyone will be busy with concepts and high poly before they need it so lets not rush :)

...oh yeah.. and GO CGTALK! xĻD

It would be worth considering that not everybody may want to create some evil character, there may be some holy warriors/paladins or angels and logo with skull may not fit very well with that.

So if you would want to create something that would work in most situations it would need to be pretty simple and generic otherwise you may force people to go in certain direction that would work well with that logo so I guess its something worth thinking about.

I'm really liking OKMERS logos.

Nice balance, i think, between rough-looking but still clear to read.

Even if you only see half of it, say from a side-view of a shoulder pad or somthing, it'll still read as the CG Society logo.

Nice.

OKMER
02-18-2008, 12:42 PM

Slux, you have a good point. But then again Okmer also have skulls in his version of logotype as well, but nobody complained. So i tried something with sculls as wel, since my character will be the dark one. But it seems like it wasn't such a good idea :) OK further there will be no skulls :D

prayas, I really like how you incorperated the D, W, and III into the design. The idea is really cool but I think the exucution could use some re-working to push it further and add visual appeal.

prayas
02-18-2008, 10:49 PM
@ laber the protection on the handle actually serves a function.


@ REKLAS that's what i'm doing right now. give me some minutes to make a logo out of the sketch. right now it was just rough paper sketch with some color slabbed on in PS.

thanks to everyone working at this logo design. I'm lovin the teamwork and the designs i've seen. I think i'll throw up a few ideas of my own later tonight. (PST) But i have a few comments...

@prayas - i think i like the original long one better. i do like that this new one is beat up though. maybe add some wings...everyone seems to be into that.

@aeonseraph - thanks for all the designs and input. I'm not too sure about the dragonhead looking letters though.

problem, i can only create poll threads with 10 entires...

i can create 2 poll threads, but then you get people voting for 2...

can we narrow the choices down here to 10? either people with multiple choose only 1...? i do want to have them all up for vote...

or, we can have everyone email me what they want and i can keep track. that way, we can have ALL logos up for voting. let me know what you guys want to do.

@ heavyness I would let each artist pick the logo he thinks is the strongest one of his entries. Than put up a poll for the warriors to choose their insignia from. Would be the easiest way. A poll is just one click so a lot of people would choose an entry. Emailing you involves a little work from everyone.

prayas, CGmonkey:
Although I see what you mean, I'm not sure if that's a good idea, as for my feeling, the choice isn't up to the artist who created it, but to us all, as we're fighting this war together.The poll will clear up things I'm sure of that.

Anyway I gave it a little try to bring the logo in 2 versions.THE BAd & the good.

But then again, I was thinking on this thing while doing this...
THe logo got some bad(the skulls)and some good(the wings) in it.
Some kind a way it can fonction in both ways.

FredH didn't talk about choising your camp, good or bad...
I think we got a serious problem here and can only send a few warriors through the wormholes to get technology back to our planet.
Huge machines are waiting for us and they won't make the difference between the good and the bad.
They just wanna blow our brains out.

I think that this time, good and bad gotta unite if we wanna win this battle...
Side by side...that will be the only way to defeat them...
(Gotta stop those mushroom's after this battle:D)

And in that way the logo could work for all of us.
But... ofcourse in the first place of all, everybody is totaly free to do what he or she feels is best!
Respect, Peace & cheers buddies!

Anyway, did some tries anyway...the good one is a bit more symbolic..

I'm a newbie when it comes to modeling and I decided to join DWIII as cannon-fodder to get the motivation to actualy finish a model and hopefuly learn some things along the way. All forums involved in the war seemed top notch and I really didn't know which one to join, so I decided to go with the one that had the most appealing logo. The works I have seen in this thread have convinced me to join CGTalk; I like nearly all of them and even though I have my favourites (eirenicon and prayas), I'll happily put whatever logo gets ultimately selected somewhere on my character. Good work CGChat. :)

I have decided to give the CG Logo a bash.

I want to get something quite generic, So that organic, mechanical, ethereal, etc,etc can use it. This is similar to a style I use to design Tattoos with a futuristic twist. If there is any interest in this I can do a more detailed and better version if need be.

EDIT:

BTW: the top one is the actual logo entry. Ive kept it a flat colour so people can edit it themselves to fit the style of their character. The other images are examples of what can be done with a few simple filters in photoshop. Also a flat colour image can be used easily as an bump map.

hi,

i'm watching this thread after it came up. i think you guys made some very special and unique logodesigns. but in my opinion, you, or we should not design much more variations or completly different desings. we should set up the vote and decide which of the impressiv logos we choose to represent our forum.

here came up some really good ideas for the logo, and as many others, i prefer the simple and easy versions of it. i think anybody who want to compete in the vote should send heavyness his entry so that he could set up the poll ...

anyway, good work to everybody, think everybody made some good sugestions ;-)

I wish you all luck with logotype designs my fellow comrades.

Digging these the most so far... elaborate, but graphical, and enough variants to allow for both integrating it into a design or allowing it to stand out on its own.

Just my two shiny coppers worth.
