Sorry to be so late to the party. I've been going through 6 years of files to figure out what should be passed on, boy I have collected a lot of stuff...

Anyway, I love the logo design. I'm a bit partial to the grey moon, as it ties back to the other logos.

As always Michael, the artwork is awesome. Thanks for helping out!

And for future reference, if you need something ASAP, call me, it works a lot better.

Do you feel strongly either way? As noted I went with orange to a) match Lucasfilm references and b) the temple is orange as well, and wouldn't work with it gray.

Let me know either way, thanks.

So....

our favorites are:




and






Again...
I like both....

Where the gray moon is a salute to our Base logo, the Renegades, Rangers and Outlaws...

the glowing moon would be a salute to our "Temple of the Howling Moon" logo...

shall we open up a poll among all NSB members?

after all...
one of them could be our next Commander...

I like them both. I would be happy with either of them.

I think the orange brightens up the logo quite a bit.

Admittedly, I have to ask why? In almost all LFL artwork (produced in colour at least) Nar Shadda is orange, so why gray?

It is tricky because, unlike almost all other bases, you do have a consistent element in the BRILLIANTLY creative, and well-designed shapes of the moon. Which is great to have them relate like that. I just don't understand why it is gray in some of the logos, (save the temple, where it is orange as well).



I do enjoy the limited colour pallet for this, and of itself I like this but the moon is orange...why change it? We don't allow that on costumes, why here? </rant> ...back to your command post making. Wink

It ended up gray because the designer of our origial artwork when we formed the Base made it that way...
I can't honestly say why...
I guess that was the way he saw it...

Very Happy

I wasn't around when the original logo was created but the grey kinda stuck with me. Regardless of what is "cannon" these are just images for our groups' personal use. Technically only one of the many logos our base has uses the orange moon. I'm not sure why that image strayed from the rest. Maybe the group liked it more? No idea.

Base line is if the base likes a green moon, then I say lets go with a green moon, lol. If most the the people like orange then go with orange. While I still like the gray moon better however the dark shading you did around the gray moon probably won't work with the black background. I think just the plain gray moon works for me. But like I said, if the majority of the people want another color, then I say "alrighty."

I hope you are not taking offense to these suggestions and changes Michael. that was never my intention

I cant believe the awesome work you and Dee have done with my crappy drawing..

the reason for the grey..

our main logo's moon is grey



our first detachment is grey



the squadron is grey



I like how they all kinda work together... but thats me Smile whatever the majority wants

it wasnt till the knights that the moon got color.

then with the rangers... we went back to the grey


and its just a logo. not meant to be a 100% accurate photo of Nar Shaddaa.. if that was the case, we have to remove the IL and WI... for that mater if all logos have to be canon, you better call the Screaming Tauntaun Squadron(first one that comes to mind) and tell them Tauntaun's cant fit in a X-wing.. not sure if they can fly one or not Smile



and this is not meant to be a shot at Screaming Tauntaun Squadron.. I love their logo!! just the first one that popped in my head that would not be canon

I bet a tauntaun would be screaming if you stuffed it in an X-Wing Mr. Green
