Actualy, I really like that design.
I dont think the font "fits" LBA though.

(allthough I have that font and like it )

the black border around the balls is ugly and the font doesn't suit well

I like TakaM's first design but I don't think it would work as a theme; that pink is just a bit too bright and overwhelming.

That said, you could always have optional themes, perhaps character or location-specific ones...

I don't know about the font style
what about using alexfont's ball instead of that one, I like alexfont's ball more. Maybe even the cool fireball.

I really like this. How about this, with Alexfont's fire ball?

Edit: With Twinsen being the biggest thing there, so Twinsun, Sendell's Medallion, Magic Ball. I think...

Fantastic look/feel to them.

My only hunch is that maybe we should get rid of twinsen in that logo..just have it blue without twinsen.
(or blue, with twinsen on the white bit behind maybe)

These are all great designs but few of them actually feel LBA.

On the four ball designs, try to make the red/green/yellow balls not so shiny/reflective, flat and bright. That is, in Relentless, the greenball was of a darker green hue.

Twinsen is a nice addition. Try to get as much of the LBA style as you can into the logo.

Maybe some kind of shadow behind Twinsen, especially behind the sendell-thing, so then it's like twinsen 's actually hanging above that "O" (network).
Love the balls, although indeed lba wasn't that saturated. I should keep it this way, though.
The shadows under the balls seem to be connected? With a small stripe between them.. Maybe you'd sort that out too.
Anyway; love the design.

I don't know about the Twinsen over the logo.
And yes, the green ball should be a bit darker:

Just a few tweaks needed (like the darker ball).

Also, twinsens medalion over the o looks weird at the moment...its slightly transparent at the bottom for one.

the yellow ball should be behind the "i" to cover up the dot of the "i" use a mask
I don't think the "o" should be dropped, but the medallion does look weird like this, and I think Twinsen is too bright lit. This tunic is way to bright, ofcourse it's difficult to do anything about it because it's from a picture where Twinsen meets Sendell... damn Sendells glow

Thanks all.

@Lightwing, yes the green ball should be darker indeed. I can easly done that. About the other balls be so shiny/reflective, I'll try to take that a bit.

@Bot13, yes the shadows are connect. As I said before this connection and shadows represent us, the members of this forum, connected through this forum in many diferent places.

@Darkflame, yep it was something I didn't done 100% since was only to see how Twinsen will look on the logo.

@Pandy, the 'O' is too big for replacing the medallion and it doesn't look nice.

@El_Muerte, I choose the LBA intro image because the first logo we had. I also like the name that way with the image masked. The 'i' point is a bit smaller to done a mask but I'll put the ball a bit to the top the way he doens't look so connected. About the picture of Twinsen, is the one from the CD check and its exactly with that weird color, anyway I may change its color to a darked blue like the real TĂșnic.

As soon as I get home I'll fit this sugestions on the logos.

I think the fireball also needs to be more flammy.

Both alexfont and .TakaM's designs are great! Its hard to decide...

I originally really liked TakaM's when compared to alexfonts first designs but now its really 50/50

I really like the TakaMs design but it needs alexfonts magic ball.

I know this is an LBA forum but the name of it is Magicball... perhaps the logo doesnt need the S medalion or Twinsen?

Alexfonts design is better without Twinsen.



This one just seems to work well. I love the magic balls and the shadows and font are nice too. I agree with El_Muerte that the green ball needs to be a little darker.

Good work guys!

My main concern with both designs is that they're too complex, alexfont's more so. How about a cartoon (Zelda style) rendering of the alexfont logo? Too many colours can be confusing, try to stick tp a maximum of 3 colours from a simlar area of the spectrum for a more professional look.

(Twinsen "duke style" ?)

seriously, the first logo is a real candidate... the one with twinsen is better that before, but not perfect, it would be nice if we could fit Twinsen in it. but if we can't ... alas.
Don't know exactly what is wrong with it, but it simply doesn't look good. Maybe we should prod certain people that can provide us with a "better" twinsen for our logo

ps, also the shadow of the fireball is capped at the bottom

Just a quick thing, nothing major.
But wouldn't the red ball be better when it's actually placed before the text? (then it's like a bow over the text, with the last ball far away, and the first at the foreground).
Anyway, just some shadows could bring up twinsen a bit, don't you think?



ps: what I didn't change, but did notice: the last shadow of the yellow ball is placed over the "g".
