New Chao Island 15th anniversary logo (And more!)

Post by ChaoGardenBuster » Sun Apr 10, 2016 4:30 pm

So I've made a little 15th anniversary logo for the site.

As for Chao Island Race Championships...

Logo

(It's just a prototype for now, might change in the future.)


Trophies (warning big images)

I was thinking that these could probably show under your profile for each year you've participated in the race. Of course re-sized though.


Badges

Like trophies, could possibly show under your profile but re-sized.


And that's it. As for any suggestions could maybe add a bright chao page under sa2b and chao world extended under the hacking page since its the biggest mod to feature chao. and maybe some of my mods...

They all look very nice and clean, good job!

Just a question, though, did Mooncow ask that you do this or did you just do it yourself for kicks? :o
Another thing, what is the "Chao island race championships"? Haven't heard of it before. Is it something you made up or something Mooncow asked for? :3

EDIT: Just read back, and saw him mention it in his post, actually. So nevermind about that XD

Regardless, they all look great. Good work. ^u^

For the logo I did it on my own free will. For the trophies/badges he already said it would be coming so I just decided to make a few graphics for it.

The logos and other pictures were indeed made very well.

Gotta agree with eboy here.
They look like MS Word templates + the text doesn't look correctly aligned. Looks like a ton of work though!

They actually remind me of the old Chao Island!

The Chao in the race logo looks very rough, as if the magic wand tool was used, and the text isn't on the same curve as the banner.

Also I'm not 100% sure about it but it looks like you used a lot of clipart, or, as Crash said, templates.

These look very good, but could use some work to fix a few things, like that it's kinda hard to read the text on the trophies and the badges have jaggy text, and the chao for the
Race Championships looks kinda blocky.

Also the font for Chao Island is incorrect which is bothering me a bit too much (from what I can tell, it's the same font used for Sonic game logos and related media).
But that's just me being picky at this point, since it's very close.

Otherwise everything's fine. Great job.

Not to put you down or anything, but I kinda agree with Eboy. When you have things off-center like that because you wanted to make sure the text didn't cover some clipart, it doesn't look so good.
For titles and logos that are text-heavy, the centerpiece should be the text, not the art.

Also, the trophies and ribbons are actually clipart from a website. It's never a good idea to use clipart like that and call it your own work, even if it seemingly is free, unless you get express permission.
Finally, if you add more shadow and a more pronounced emboss onto the text on your trophies, the text will pop more.

Sorry if I'm sounding a little bit like a jerk here, I don't mean to be, promise!
