    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.

    I was wondering if it might be possible to stuff an air bladder in the dead space in the deploy stock.

    It seems pretty big, and a pump could easily be integrated.

    Any thoughts?

    A Stampede (instead of the Raider) would make Deathwish's logo EPIC, methinks.

    Generally speaking a simple design is much better than some "headache inducing" designs of yesteryear, but I understand what you're saying.
    Could you be a little more specific in regards to what you mean by something more "creative"?
    Any aspect of that logo is easily changed.

    Edit:

    I like that very much. Just as a test, is it possible to align the text so that 'Oz' and 'Nerf' are over to the far right, and the z of Oz is above the f in nerf?

    Still, looks great.

    I feel that you should use the current NERF logo with the Oz. Or smoething similar, because the font for the current banners I've been seeing is the old version of their logo and makes it too 70s like.

    Exactly like that. Not sure what other guys think but I think it looks good.
    I feel bad by asking you to keep changing your original design but if the Stampede was moved other just a tad that logo would be looking mint

    I wasn't a fan of the blasters in the banner, but this is amazing!

    Nice! Looks beautiful. I still reckon the Maverick should be the gun on there. Most Iconic ever!

    And yeah the newer logo looks much better.

    I think the bottom one from Deathwish is the best I've seen so far.

    However i still think a range of darts and missiles would be better than a blaster, since we all might use different blasters but we all use these foam darts.

    Loving the bottom logo, looks awesome. I think a Maverick or Raider would suit; just fitted to show the entire gun.

    Alright, I've finally moved the stampede over closer to the logo itself. It took me so long as I had to completely recreate the image - I accidentally deleted the photoshop file with all the layers etc. D'oh! But I've recreated it, so now changes can be made in a matter of seconds.
