Tammy from Tears of Envy has been playing with the culture logos for me, and it seems like a good time to share them with you. There's still some tweaking to be done, but I'd love to hear your thoughts!

The first logo is the empire - bold, shining and noble, but a little bit aged and tarnished. The symbols show the first emperor surrounded by his five advisors who went on to form the first five clans across the empire.
The second is the Delgon - crisp, neat and ordered. It depicts Enar rising over the mountains of Delgon.
Finally we have the Devanu. The three daggers of Arak Katain, scribed into a piece of wood taken from their old slaves.

I'm very happy with the Delgon and empire designs. The 'wings' are optional and won't always be used.
The Devanu design is still work in progress and will be tweaked a bit. Feel free to suggest any ideas you may have, but don't be upset if I don't take them all on board  Wink

I like them a lot.

However, I think the Devanu logo looks  bit too busy - a logo needs clear definition, which is lacking IMHO. The white marks break it up too much. They look like they are paint smeared on the wood, but they continue through the tooth design as well. Perhaps if the tooth design was "clean" but the white paint remained on the wood backing, as though painted before it was scribed?

Or I may be missing the point entirely... In which case I'll go back to painting all my uniformed, same-skinned, same coloured Enuk, empire knights now...  Tongue

I like 'em and the more I look at the devanu one the more I like it. My dislike are the wings. But that's just a personal thing. Its good to see twilight looking all shiny  Cheesy

Looking very nice, I think the Devanu logo is a bit busy and looses some impact for it. The other two are great and the with without wings idea is good too.

The empire logo is great as is and would be good if you make up a significance for the long triangles too, tho losing them isn't the end of the world as, the other side of the coin, them with the "tail" triangle and "twin headed" top bit does make it look a little WH40K in silhouette if not in design

The Delgon logo needs to be just the square imo. It works brilliant as just that and leaves me with the impression of it almost being a clan stamp

The Devanu logo works as a shape but the colours are off putting. I'd lose the white and lose the "blood" and then make the slashes more of a contrast with the outer wood, so perhaps a darker bark and the slashes underneath being the much paler flesh of the wood?

Just my 0.02

Ta for the thoughts so far - generally inline with my own. I think cleaning the paint out of the slashes on the Devanu one would help to give more definition. That one is earliest in the design process, so more room for tweaking.

The parallels to 40k Empire had never remotely occurred to me...

The Delgon symbol is effectively a stamp. I'm sure that specific 'clans' within the Delgon have similar designs, but this one is the primary symbol. I've used it on the KalJoran and the KalGush so far.

Can I just ask what are the five major clans triangles?

I like them, looks good.  The Devanu needs a little something as others have said.  I think it's the circle?  How about just the 3 floating tear marks and drop the circle?

I like how you put the Empire symbol on the Fubarnii Knights of Relan.  I hadn't really paid attention to untill you showed the faction symbol.

I like the Empire and Delgon logos but i think they are better without the wings each side. The Devanu one needs more work

Yeah ditch the wings and theyre spot on. Remove the white paint from the Devanu oneat least from the red triangles. Think a old used shield thats been turned into a sign, totem etc. The 3 red triangles should be the most prominent.

Nice  Smiley Must say I quite like the Devanu one and the white paint doesn't bother me in the least.

I've played around with the last versions tammy sent me to remove the wings... They'll generally be treated more neatly, but thought I'd share the latest versions for some feedback.

The latest devanu one has been cleaned up to remove the white from the triangles, which I think helps a lot. I'm kinda happy with them all now.  Smiley

What do you think?

Looks good to me. The Devanu logo holds its own now.

Indeed. I think they all look great. Its easy enough to see dirtier versions of the Devanu one cropping up all over the place, but as a starting point, I think the "Clean" version is definitely the way to go!
