Sharpen the text and do something else with the black lines under it so they look like a part of the design. Try to make its corners pointy (just below the T in MILITARY), right now they're kind of round.

[Edit] What letters does this logo represent? Are they obvious enough?

I really like that logo. I won't say what the letters are myself (so you can see what other people see the letters as), but i think they're pretty clear. :)

I may take that text back to its original look and maybe just up the transparency a touch. I could never get it to look very "painted on" to such a uniform background without losing some integrity. I may recolor those lines, too. It seems like every time I'd add something new to the picture, original design elements became nearly unnoticeable or pointless.

Oh, and I think your logo's letters are obvious enough but I'll follow LFC's example and not declare what I think they are.

@ Blooper It looks like AR or FR, but I have no idea what it might mean. But I'm old and not very "hip". :lol:

@ Xander_Lyon, Much improved. I like the wires sparking in the lower right corner. The laser blasts look good as well except the one suspended above the main image. It looks a little out of place. I also like the idea of the panel smashed in. If you want, try this tut and it might be useful in giving the smashed panel a more realistic look by adding some wrinkles to the metal. viewtopic.php?f=35&t=27775&hilit=waving+flag Try looking through the text tuts, I know there is one in there that will help with the painted on look you are trying to get.

Here we are PDNava.pngPDNsig.png

I like them ! Nice contrasting colors, simple and elegant. Makes the point right on the mark.

You're right about that other laser blast. I was trying to suggest different weapon types were hitting the hull. Instead, that blast just looks like a shadow, so I thought I could turn it into the shadow of whatever's attacking . . . but a better burn would likely make more sense. :) It's funny you showed me that flag tutorial. That's exactly what I used to give the panel a smashed in look. I'm not sure how to tweak it further to give a better busted in look. The key to the displacement map seems to be how much you blur the black and white parts on top of the greyscale map. Is that what you used on your curtains? I didn't think you could be that detailed and get such a subtle effect.
