A little something i pulled together for a new fight team
 
So, I recently became involved in a new fight team fighting out of the gym i usually train at an was asked if i could do a logo for it.

so, here it is in the context of a poster/banner/whatever :)






I already posted it in VIP but i figured it'd be best here.

I absolutely love it. Love the use of the gradient background in contrast with the rising sun effect. Also those little bits of vibrant pink on a B&W piece give it a nice kick.

How did you do the skyline and Skull wings btw? You use illustrator of PS Pen tool?

Excellent job.

Thanks buddy.

The skulls + wings where traced and then tweaked to my liking from some images i found on the web (using illustrator). The skyline i did in illustrator too but that was created from scratch but based loosely on random skyline photographs.

I use illustrator and Macromedia freehand for nearly all illustration as it means i have a vector graphic in the end that i can use for whatever i want.

the whole thing was done in Illustrator with no post production in PS.

you certainly can but it might be a little warm by the time it gets here :D

I'd make sure it wasn't an Aussie beer first :D Unless you're out on the piss, then, and only then, is Fosters acceptable drinking.

Fantastic job man, one of my short comings is drawing free hand. I just can't. And have no motivation to do so haha.

haha, i do a lot of technical illustration in my job so it sort of comes as second nature to me to draw more fun stuff when i get a chance :)

it's wierd, i'm not that 'great' or an illustrator with a pen or pencil but i can usually get to where i want to be with a mouse.
