I got really really f*cking pissed and I made a logo for a radio station rather than throwing my computer across my room.

 

 

 

Any thoughts? It looks pretty nice to me.

No, I actually don't. I do browse all of the stock sites for inspiration. I like to try and recreate something similar to my favourite ones to test my skills.

I reckon you definitely could. Your work has a similar look to some of the stock stuff that sells well, especially on GR. It could be a nice sideline for you - you can't go wrong with a passive income.

Looks cool, but you spelt 'always' wrong.

 

Also I'd move 'The Eagles' down a tad so it sits in the middle of the disk more.

 

edit: Just realised you posted this 6 months ago. oops.

Now if it was a .PNG it'd make a great signature. Its amazing though, I love it!

How long did that take man? The attention to detail is great.

 

 

Picked up my pen to do some digital drawing, haven't done any in years. Quite a way from completeion.

uzer you should really make it a .png and use it as a signature. It's absolutely beautiful, well done. :^:

Does anybody have any knowledge on making "patches"? I'm looking for a tutorial of some sort. Similar to the ones Graven has made.

I wrote in some patch request how they are made but not so in-depth. And I´m not gonna make a detailed tutorial, at least for now because I always tweak them settings for every patch.

The shapes I do usually in Inkscape or other vector app, just like it that way, they are of course easy in PS too. There´s a billion ways to do a thing but You can use a ring shape to make the top and bottom rockers for example.

Type rocker text to ring paths, (flip the lower, mouse hold + ctrl and drag up) edit baseline shift, tracking etc. Rasterize the ring and cut side parts off. There´s lot of useful custom shapes also around or make your own.

MC patch and diamond are done with rounded rectangular shape. And middle patch bottom with selection of the middle image and using refine edge with edge shift, smooth, some feather, and lots of contrast for sharp edge.

 

The patch textures themselves are leather textures from texturemate I believe, can´t reacall anymore, but there´s lot of good textures and patterns.

Play every time with the settings of course if someone wants different colors and look but here´s in a nut shell how I make it with LayerFX:

Leather pattern applied to shapes. Then I use small bevel, because it allows to use another texture which is a crack pattern to make the rockers look more worn. You can see it in the white and sand color patches, but it´s not yet looking very good, these settings need to be very subtle and small. The outer edge of the patch is made with outer glow, (blend normal 100%) and some noise, and inner knit with inner glow using a ring contour. That´s about it.

 

If You want stitches, I make them now by drawing with a mouse. It´s a simple stick brush, You could draw one, or use line tool with round ends. This is one of the things I like Gimp, You can use anything You draw instantly for a brush.

And the new version has very good brush dynamics too, to create own dynamics. Anyway, earlier I used to make a work path (tolerance 0,6-0,8) of all the patches from selection and expanding it by 2 pixels, then using the stroke path to create the stitch around and over the outer edge. Using custom dynamics setting the most important is obviously angle set to direction. And some randomness with small amounts of size jitter and scattering.

Drawing the stitches with mouse, need some accuracy but it does not take much more time and I like the result more.

 

Text layers have 1-pixel line patterns, or some other cyclic fabric style patterns and only small amount of FX to bump it little out.

Middle image depends on the original, if it´s too life-like may use some cartoon effect or vectorize it first to look simpler with lesser amount of colors. like real knitted patches would be.

2 duplicates of this, bottom one stays untouched, airbrush effect to middle(diffuse or filter gallery brush strokes in PS could work too), and some texture effect to top, canvas, sandstone what ever You like and looks similar to the rocker base, could use same pattern too.

Then I use again pixel line pattern on the top layer and play with the blending modes for some transparency to get some airbrush effect through it and grungier look. If You scale the pixel pattern to uneven number like 101, 146 instead of 50, 100 it looks better.

 

I heard that very detailed patches get blurred in-game affecting the stitch effect and the lines, don´t know about PC version but in consoles. They are probably scaled to smaller size causing the blur.

Don´t know if, but I suspect there could be also warping to have wrinkly look since they are cloth textures.

 

Now go and try. If You know your way around PS, it´s not that hard. IMO it´s lot harder to make simple, original looking logo than play with effects.

Graven, thank you so much for the information and advice. I must try it out on my own soon. Once I'm finished with this semester (it ends next month) I'll definitely have a crack at it.

 

Jacob, that's awesome! Already on the way to 641,000 :p

Cropped out the Vice City 10th Anniversary logo, and also cropped it into individual segments.

I also had some fun with it and did some things like changing the inner black to white like the original, making the original logo but with the new style, and even making a Vice City Stories logo in the style of the 10th anniversary logo!

Just thought I'd share it in case any of it comes in handy to anybody.

 

The Vice City Stories one is a bit dodgy in terms of cropping (and also the 'shine') as I didn't put much focus into it, so it's a bit sloppy. Still looks alright, though.

Message me if you'd like. I can give you some guidance if you truly need it.

 

If not, Google is a fantastic utility. No sarcasm/satire intended.
