Um, hey. I'm not really a member of NSL, but I'm a dedicated ns2 pub player and a big NSL fan. You guys rock.

Anyway, I had a spare afternoon, and was too tired to play, so I thought I would check whether I could vector-draw NSL logo. I couldn't really catch the proportion between the marine and the alien, so I've reworked it and made them symmetric:

The result is decent as far as I can assess. I couldn't have forced myself to dump the drawing, so I thought I would share it with you. If any of you likes it, feel free to use it in whatever way.

Your Link:



Very Very nice i like it a lot especially the colour selection very fitting and clear and easy to see

I had to apply that to the current logo to just see how this looks:


but after a lot of thinking about it i like yours even better. cause the ring is still one-sided towards the Marine only.
i will try 1-2 more version of it.

Next Try:



They are all rough sketches to see what might look the best or what is a decent change of a logo without looking to unfamiliar

also just for fun

Happy to hear you liked it!

I liked your versions very much (especially the fourth one with the two crescents), as they go toward my doubt about my original image - that it looks more like two separate symbols. Your posts encouraged me to give it more tries, and first I tried marine and skulk facing different directions with no additional ornament at all:



What was annoying me, though, was that they looked like some new connected lifeform, so I added claw marks between them:



While I liked it more, I thought it is too wide, so I came back to the idea of the skulk and the marine facing each other, but wanted to "combine" them (put on each other) even more:



Here (above) they are without any frame, just a suggestion of a parallelogram around. But I decided I missed the crescent badly, so I said to myself, what the heck, and made this one:



and shamelessly used here your idea of making the crescent bi-color ;)

... and some ppl say only 6-year old draw for fun :D

P.S. It is much easier to edit it in the vector format, but i dunno if you have tools for that. If yes, let me know, and maybe I can export my drawings in EPS or sth.
P.P.S. I finally found out how to add images to a post, sry for not doing it in the OP. I could find tutorials on everything, lerk, fade, but not on how to create posts ;)

I like the current logo as it harps back to the original NS1 ENSL branding :) It's pretty clever
