Do you think porn sites would mind if we stole their alien images? I mean, the faces aren't exactly their focus...

I don't want to sound harsh but just typing Xenocide with a big red font isn't enough imho ;)

I think the best would be to find some1 to draw the logo... I'll see if I can come up with something but I'm not that good at drawing...

Two more things, texturize, even if slightly, the text and use anti-alias.... I HATE EDGY FONTS!!! :D

I'm having a hard time getting three effects out of photoshop (because my CD with filters is 250 miles away... I don't have any good textures, I can't make anything look reasonable in 3d (any time you take it to 3d it doesn't put edges on it, so you end up with a 3d image with no depth) and I can't get anything shiny. Oh man, if I could get a decent texture and put these things in 3d.....wow.

if anyone knows where to find some things to fix my problem (generally within photoshop 7) i'd appreciate it.

Sorry just noticed.

The only stuff I delete is stuff that could get ugly. In this case serious insults or threats. Most arguments I think can be let go if they avoid the previous sentence. As long as they are discussions and not fights.

Other stuff I delete is nebulously defined as "clutter". As for SPAM, gosh I haven't been on a good spam hunt in a while . . . .

As for how Offtopic got perverted, well Gangsta and I started it as a matter of fact.

Someone was asking what kind of limitation Mica had for making forums in terms of what subjects they could be. I answered back that he had all the freedom in the world and to illustrate with a graphic example and not as a joke, I said if he wanted he could make a gay pick-up forum for example.

Well Gangsta reads that and does one of the kinds of replies we've come to expect from him. What? I'm gonna let it go? Then Gangsta goes and gets his buddy Double Negative to join. Wonderful, guy one of those rare fellows who has an unabashed attitude towards making gay and jerk-off jokes in the first person; you've gotta love that.

Well this all began on friday, and Mica was absent for the weekend. It was funny he shows up monday afternoon with his immortal reply:

"Huh? Bunch of faggots!"

Well :) I didn't say the background should be red on the titile screen. Thing is Red goes good on a blue background. IF you have a blue title on a blue background or even logo then you tend to notice neither. I think whatever else is on the background screen should be blue. As for logos. Nice to say but I have yet to see someone produce one that works. As for fonts people are just brainstorming here :) Be good to comment here to see what works.

BTW. that might look better in a image viewer than from the browser. for some reason my browser keeps displaying the title I post darker than they are in gimp or when I view em from electric eyes. Anyways The way that X looks here that could be a good logo if it was bigger and the intensity decreases from top to botton as if it were blood. :) I don't have the right tools to do that myself or dunno how :) with gimpy.

The autofilter actually blocks me typing in my proper website URL :P

It should be http://www.dou5hite.3lx.com/ (with an s not a 5), so I have to use a redirect from http://www.pringle.3lx.com/ never mind...

Oh and back on-topic, I would do a logo (used to be good at graphic design) but I'm on my crap PC which only has paint shop pro on... :P

I suggest a logo centered around a large icon as opposed to a strip of text... Try to keep the image dimensions squarish not rectangular...

WOW! We're getting there! It's still that "Diablo" font though. And Red X in the back ground is odd. Do you have a program for doing 3D, if so maybe instead of the X across the face have either a white or green light shinning from below the face up onto it. The light source shouldn't be visible but the shodows on the Sectoids face might be neat.

Edit:
Holy crap I just followed your link and they have the sectoid light from underneat with a Green light; maybe I'm not full of it! :P

wow I didn't even see the background on that one because the background of this webpage is so bright. Anything on a black background doesn't come out looking right when posted here. To demonstrate it look at the board's logo while on the forum and then when on the xcomufo.com front page. you can't see the fat guys shoulder when on the forum as you can when the background is black.

As promised, now that I have real filters (not just the crap stock ones) I am able to perform a bit better. I'm going to post two images, one that doesn't have anything done to it...all I want to know is this: is this a good metallic look?

Second one, tell me what you think of it as a logo.

I don't like the lightning coming out of the font. the glow looks good but for some reason I think it would be better on another font. BTW. I deleted the second one. Next time just put a message DELETE THE PREVIOUS POST GANGSTA. I will then then delete the previous post and will also edit out the note to me in your new message. it it this way than edit your previous message to tell me to delete it because chances are I saw that post already and will miss it.

actually i did :) the only prob would be the alien eyes coz im crap when it comes to 3d modelling.

anyways i thought it could end like this:
... and the sectoid turns its head towards the camera while its face turns from curious to scowling (hope u get my point coz my english aint that good). at the same time camera view shrinks quite fast only from top and bottom while the rest of background turns black. after that "xenocide" will be written right in the middle over the alien eyes and finally the X symbol will be riped into the background (actually middle ground ... behind "xenoside" but in front of alien eyes).

hows that sound? :P
btw the beginning u have to figure out urself :)

i could do the very end of intro but only when i have that alien animation :)

I think we're almost there folks!

Maveric: the metalic font #6 is right on!
* Can you introduce a very slight amount of blue into the color of the metal.
* Instead of the Green Fire, But a Blue radioative glow behind the letters.

Fatal Error: you are onto something buddy. The exteme closeup of the Sectoid showing just the eyes is brilliant!!!!
* Ditch the red semi-circles making the red X shape in the background, bring up the brightness on the sectoid "face" it's a little hard to see.

Then could you two guys work together, I'd like to Maverics Xenocide over Fatal Errors "Eyes". Try the Xenocide in different locations with respect to the eyes.

If you do work together then Maveric in addition to the Xenocide above can you also produce one without the big X (just make it the same as the rest. The make a version of it where the letters are twice as tall and one where the letters are 2.5 or 3 times as tall.

But still the same thickness, stretch them.

Then play with combinations of fonts and positions with respect to the eyes. Also you may need to space out the letters so the face will show through, because likely letters over the eys as Fatal Error has it gona work best.

This is coming along!

Gangsta, you're pretty good with the graphics stuff, what are you using?
The flaming X is cool. Can you do animation's with your software? Here's what I'm thinking. . .

For the into we'll have something like "The Skunkworks Group" (I'm just making up a quick name for filler) "Presents"

Then based on your font the Xenocide has flaming letters, the flames go out and are replaced by smoke (once again based on your font) the smoke hangs in the air for a moment then is blown clear by a sudden gust.

The Intro plays and when it's done. We show the Maveric/Fatal Error graphic.
