The logo itself isn't bad, although I can only see the dinosaur, none of the other ones.

The knight has no depth, and blends harshly into the background because of all the dark colours used. (Also I'm assuming its a cs knife ripoff).

Try adding specular and dark shadows to make the knife stand out, but not too much that it takes over the logo.

Also I though the first one was a C at first ;D

the knife is from css yes, but i used it because TTT is the most played game among the DNR community and TTT uses a lot of css models. I didn't want to focus too much on the knife, I already made it brighter than it's source image. (basically used gmod to take a picture of it and cut it out)

I dont know what you mean you can't see the others.. you mean you cant see the ninja or robot in the N and R letters? By the way, I also colored the dinosaur, ninja and robot myself from simple sketches I found on the net. I love my coloring skills!

You should really take a closer look at the banner on the website itself as it was specifically designed around it... although it doesnt match the site color. I offered a blue version but they liked the red the most. www.DNRgaming.net

No actually I can't tell that the object in the second 2 letters is a ninja or robot. The middle one makes me think of camo for a commando, and the right one doesn't look like anything in particular. The limited space in the letters makes it hard to distinguish what they are, unlike the dinosaur which is a closeup of a popular dinosaur that someone would have to be daft not to see.

Even looking closer now, I find the 3 to be distracting in the robots title, because it made me stop and look at it separately from the rest of the image, feeling it was a mistake before realizing it's supposed to be there.

Even on the website I can't even tell that it is a knife unless I really look close, because of all the black around it making it seem black as well. The D also still looks like a stylistic C, but that could just be me (Which mostly does this because it is the only letter that the knife interacts with, taking the viewer by surprise).

I like my ninja... arctic terrorist ninja ftw. Probably could done the knife better, wanted it to be in front of the R but that would make it a little to vague.

Alcool, I can see why you hate my robot. I've been looking for days to find a robot that actually doesn't look like another gundam and although I could probably keep looking for a replacement to improve it, it's just too much work for one little detail.

Anyways, what makes finding drawings so hard is that I have to find a sketch of a robot that hasn't been already colored and make sure it's not popular so I can avoid the make-believe copyright. My only sources are deviantart so it's like looking for a pin in a haystack. A very disgusting and disorganized haystack.

I appreciate your critiques though. I will remember these suggestions for future projects. The only thing that I might edit will be probably the robot, maybe increase it's size in the letter might make it flow better.

The real question is, are you SUPPOSED to see the ninja....

Could always draw your own robot ;D

Use something mechlike, towards mech warrior style, not Goddamn, I mean Gundam.
