View Full Version : Shadowdale - Dark Metal

04 April 2003, 05:05 PM
Hi guys, haven't visited this forum for quite a while. Listen up....
I've got this music band project with my friends, we're just amatures, and we're planning to play something like dark metal... something inbetween heavy metal and black metal..... I've fixed up a couple of nice lirycs and we've ensembled 2 whole tracks... now we're preparing to create our website... and here's the catch.... we need a logo for our band and unfortunatlly non of us is skilled enough with hand drawings.... so here's my apeal if any of you great talents out there could spare 5 minutes and draw some cool logo..... I would be very greatfull... also you'd ofcours be mentioned on the page and right beneath the logo itself....
I'll post my try on the logo in a couple of hours.... we are named "Shadowdale" - I know it's ungramatical but I want the two separete words to figure together the "shadow" and the "dale". SHADOWDALE - we play heavy music with dark lirycs - non satan crap ofcours... just plain life problems within the texts....

hmmmm I didn't relize that this thread was misplaced.... strange I also didn't notice that I'm starting a colaborative team project :surprised ohh well :shrug: Sorry for me being wrong :shrug:

So, you need a logo, for "shadowdale"...

hmm...the name doesn't really imply anysort of shape or anything

somehow that name reminds me of somethig irish, would you like me to look into a few Celtic designs?

Or have you got a scan of your hand drawings?
Just give me something to go on here, though you may not want my help, I'm not one of those "greats" and it'll surely take me more than 5 minutes...hehe...

hyhy haya there unLevel :) I already said that it's dark metal so this logo should be dark and shadowy :p something mistic and dark at the same the time, oh and it should be readeblle too.......

04 April 2003, 01:18 AM
dark, metal, and shadowdy and readable smilie face, gotcha!

hehe..just playing...though I wish I had more to go on....that's ok, I'll think of something

04 April 2003, 01:02 PM
alright, 5 minute concept work:

04 April 2003, 01:46 PM
hey unlevel qll idea.... I'm anxious to see how it comes out.... oh and even if your logo isn't going to be used by us then It'll have it's place on our website........ Here's mine logo...

04 April 2003, 02:20 PM
Your's looks a lot better than mine, Crash!

I was thinking of adding a sword through both the O's, but I"m not sure, any suggestions?

Or a guitar upside down, with the handle going down through the O's?

04 April 2003, 02:41 PM
hmmmm you could give it a shot but I don't think that such stuff would fit in here... try to play around with the depth of the logo, with your gr8 idea you could achive some really creepy mood, in the meanwhile another one from me.........

04 April 2003, 02:42 PM
My gread idea?


Your's is looking a LOT nicer, as i"m guessing you use photoshop?
I'm using fireworks, so there's no way it'll turn out as good as yours...

Ok, Crash, here's my idea, making it is QUITE A DIFFERENT STORY:

Get the effect that Shadowdale is 'engraved' on the neck of a guitar...see red circles on attatchments..hehe...

04 April 2003, 03:01 PM


Now, I have not the skills to do such, but it's just an idea that hit me...and left a mark...hehe..

If you like the idea, I can sure try to make such, or if you want to try, we could take turns or something, whatever you want, crash...

Also, we can either 'make' the guitar, or something, but we need OUR pics, not some I found on brother has a digital camera, and my sis has a guitar, but wouldn't you rather your guitar?

04 April 2003, 03:22 PM
small test, to give you an idea of what i"m talking about...

04 April 2003, 12:34 AM
ok ok here's my try... i know it's too simple but hey simple can be good? crash, if you want something changed about it then just give me the word and i'll give you the image...also if you want a different format then that's fine too...just tell me...

ok here it is:

04 April 2003, 12:48 AM
