    Sorry, I was just trying to improve it. I claim no credit. For the record, I didn't use any of your pictures or files, just the same one you started from.

    Good plan - once you get permission, it's fine to use.

    If i was any good at art (which im not) i would have gone for a plan that included all the different types of darts, since there are many different ones and possibly added a few stefans into the design. Word it with a line such as "Oz Nerf; Australian Nerf Community; for any dart you choose to use".

    This design would be good for all users as it doesnt say one gun or another, and encompasses all the different dart styles together under the one banner of this community.

    I was under the impression you had to use 'Oz nerf - Australian nerf community', but if somebody could clarify that, I would appreciate it.

    infernofalcon, that design is awesome. And yes you are using the correct text. If you could make the text run along the dart, rather than bending upward you just might be outr winner.

    BTW we will have a poll for out member to choose soon so get your entries in.

    I vote for the font in the current logo, if it can be used.

    What font is it? Just curious.

    Cut out the white around the Maverick, it will look much better on the dark back round.

    Honestly thats fantastic but I think you just need to clean up the edges- especially on the front.

    Looks great with the background, just clean up the edges and perhaps make the font a little large and different style?

    BPV slow is the best way, its how its done in industry too, no one will ever give you everything in one sitting, you do a little a thousand times over...

    If only they taught kids this way in art classes.. almost every kid would think of art class like a SOSE or similar class.

    Thank you very much for the feedback, I appreciate it.

    Do you mean to say you would prefer the text to be start instead of curved? I was under the impression the curving helped it contour to the shape of the dart, but okay. (I have no idea how to undo that...)

    Also, does this mean I can use that image as well, or must I email the creator separately?

    I'm not sure what program you're using to edit your pictures, but the text really needs some work. If you need a free image editor, try gimp.org, or paint.net. Try to outline your text in a contrasting color, and center if, if it's going to be on the dart.

    I like the idea of all the different kinds of darts, but the filter you put on them doesn't look too good on the smaller darts.

    Good luck!

    You use paint.net, correct? Again, the text needs to be more readable, possibly being outlined in black. I am not familiar with paint.net, but if there is a way to add more shape to the text, such as beveling it, that could add to the overall appeal.

    If you make the background such that it is not visibly squared, you might want to consider cropping less of the gun, as it might look odd having it blend in with the background, and only showing a portion of it. Sorry if that didn't make a lot of sense.

    I like that the best especially the drawn look, good work. I think this should be the new header as I hate this one, I even asked my sister and she doesn't even use the site and she said it was gay. I wouldn't say that but BPV's is much better now all he has to do is come to a nerf war.

    @bulletproofvest

    The last one that you posted was a lot better, but you might want to consider making the text a bit larger, and maybe changing the font.
