I would like to avoid another standard "bird" logo.
I am looking for something that draws the eye and makes the viewer think "That is Epic". Something awe inspiring or just "powerful".
The BIGGEST DETERMINANT in this logo for is is this: look at the image attached from the pc game "Demigod". When you look at that title screen picture, you think "wow... epic, legendary, powerful, awe inspiring". That is what I am trying to capture. I don't care about the "fiery"ness of the Demigod logo itself, but the whole scene with the statues. Think like the entry to the banquet hall of the norse "Gods of old" with fierce statues on either side of the hall, proudly displaying their battle regalia.
Our website design is plain, but will change based on the logo you design.
I am a fan of rustic, epic golds and tints and will make the site match accordingly.
We will be creating banner ads of various sizes from the logo as well; a default rectangular shaped logo is preferred.
Don't be afraid to experiment with combinations - I am a programmer and don't know the first thing about color matching : )
*******UPDATE - SEE ATTACHED PICTURES
After seeing entry #21, I would be VERY interested in seeing what the proverbial "Master Dwarf" would create to be his "Finest Clockwork Design". The "power" and "intricacy" and "awe" and "Holy Crap" is EXACTLY what I can see in an artfully created CLOCKWORK design.
I have attached some pictures of what I REALLY like - trick is turning it into a logo : )
