sorry Ted... im not normally one to put down others work but it really isnt very good

you havent taken note of the current logo at all and just made up your own in the same colours


The angle of the writing is wrong
There is no glow around the writing
There is no shadow
infact even the colours are slightly wrong

sorry dude but you need to try that one again :-)

It isn't too bad, but it does need some work. Have another look at the colours and angle, then try again (taking your time).

Ok - I will put it in other words: This is not even a logo. This is a poorly made rendering of the word "warlight". I'm not trying to discourage you. It's nice that you are trying to help. I'm only saying you need to work a bit more to improve your skills in 3d graphics - or spend a bit more time on modeling, lighting, rendering, composition, postproduction and - i would really start with basic typography :)

to point out some flaws in detail:
1) you obviously went for imitating the original and trying to add "depth" - if this is the case then you should:
- use the same font (original logo has thinner letters),
- with same kerning (original letters are nearer to each other),
- same angle (you use simple perspective angle from bottom right, while original uses an effect of letters falling from end to beginning of the word with the last leter being straight - you might interpret it also as an tilted lens effect with infinite focal width),
- similar palette (you use proper hue, bad gamma and proportions),
- similar background glowing shadow effects (you use none) etc.
- similar lighting (original lighted from above, your lighted faintly from upper left part)

2) you should use polygon optimization for curves, or nurbs/spline modelling to smoothen the curves.
3) you could use global illumination to make the shadows and reflections more realistic
4,5,6,7,8... etc.. lots of things i could write, but i don't think it's necessary.

Nevertheless I was thinking myself of helping Fizz with the visual part of the game, but i never managed to sit and commit to it, and i don't think i have enough skills to make it at the proper level. So - at least for the commiting your time to it part - you are better. Thumbs up, and keep on the good work. A little hint from a cg friend: always start your 3d work from clay-modelling (google it if you never heard of it before) - it really makes a difference as you can easily see if you properly made the scene before applying materials. after basic clay model, do basic lighting, then apply only reflective/refractive parameters to the maps in the scene - and if that looks good, then add all the textures and shaders. Thumbs up :)

as for the font - i meant to write "original has thicker letters, and even their shape is different - e.g. look at the shape of G"

- i must have pressed undo type one click to many - sorry :)

I just want you guys to know I have been modelling for 6 years.. I made this in around 30 seconds as a joke. Fizzer knows what's going on here.

6 years you say? I spent 8 months, and err, that looks very much like one of the simple tutorials I did.

Not saying you're bad.. but I don't see how you spent 6 whole years on modeling and can only do that..

I posted that without actually looking at the image that long. Sorry for the double post, but the tutorials I took had more sensible lighting/shadow ideas. So err.. I don't know what to say about that.

No Ted, everyone realizes what is going on. You are acting like a petulant child over your perceived harassment from Fizzer in your attempt to publish a worthless map. You did the same with multiple aggressive threads and on the map review page through the use of multiple alternate accounts.

Not the first to act this way and sadly won't be the last.

Oh my - how could i miss that sarcasm in the original post.. I really have to sleep more..

as for criticism: I bet your nike logo thinggy is another joke, so i will not comment on it, as it is even badly modelled despite it's borderline simplicity, but looking at your facebook swimming pool rendering - which i assume you are proud of, you really could use some basic cg tutorials - and ehhhmm... some knowledge of architecture and construction could be helpful as well.. that is really not a work of somebody who is even 6 months in the industry - cause then it should be much better... :/

BTW - i'm not going to comment on your attitude towards Fizzer especially when I don't know the details, but seems your behaviour doesn't end on warlight - i adore how you got only one comment under your great swimming pool rendering, and yet the comment says:

"why are you stealing models?"

sort of perfectly sums up your 3d modelling practice after - how many years you say? :D



I have to go get some sleep, but tomorrow i'll give you a humble birthday present. ;)

Even if that was a good idea, it isn't compatible with 3D glasses. Before we make the logo in HD, it must appear to be real. Besides, not everything must be in HD.

First off, let me start off by explaining how wrong you are...

My attempt at publishing one of my maps WAS harassment. It NO problems on it, but whoever declined it, thought otherwise. I added some bonuses to the map, then suddenly it was acceptable?.. That's ridiculous. I publish a new map a week later with no bonuses, and it's accepted. So tell me, does that sound fair to you? The fact that even after I resubmitted my map with bonuses, that it took around 3 weeks to accept? (Even though other maps were being accepted at the time?)

Also, when you worthless map I'd like to point out that the few randoms that I've played it with, DO enjoy it. It's either a map you love or hate. There ARE real 5 star ratings on that map, from legit accounts.

Now, when you say that I made threads with "multiple" accounts... You might REALLY want to get your facts straight before making that assumption... I DID have about 2 or 3 other accounts in the past, but that's because me and King Slasma were trying to get perfect records. So yes Richard Sharpe, you're looking like quite the douche right now.

"6 years you say? I spent 8 months, and err, that looks very much like one of the simple tutorials I did. "

Yes, What I mean by that is, I've been drawing art for my whole life, but if I only spent five seconds, all I'm going to have is a stick figure. Did you see where I said I spent 30 seconds on this? (With 10 seconds being uploading and posting it?) I KNOW It's nothing to be proud of.

Now Malamute, I actually appreciated your criticism in the first post, but now that you have said this,

"why are you stealing models?""
"sort of perfectly sums up your 3d modelling practice after - how many years you say? :D"
Yeah, my modelling practice is "stealing" other models. You got me!.. Nope, I didn't model over 40 different guns on 6 fully textured different maps back in the day on Halo 2 with 3dsMax!... Nope! Nobody liked those!


"that even looks less like the warlight logo!"
You're right, but it could work.


Man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some of you guys need to relax!... Get the facts right. It wasn't me with those multiple accounts. Fizzer knows who it is, but just because you think you're a wizard and can automatically assume who it is, that doesn't mean you're right..
