dang, that is tiny. kind of defeating. i'll see if i can fit that thing in their and hope it doesn't act like one of those novelty peanut can gags.

I just noticed this . I thought this forum was called Straight to Hell. I did another logo in the past, did i call it straight to hell then, too? It's Voices from Beyond, or Straight to Hell. is up up? is down down? do trees migrate?

this is as far as i got on it. i have to stop so i can go look for a new place. they are fracking a little too close to my safe zone and since all the propaganda the industry has churned out about fracking not having harmful health effects on people who live near where it takes place is proven to be bullshit on a daily basis, it requires we move out by the 1 of the month. Olaf the iPad will be with me, and I'm not driving today, so I'll look in on you fine folks.

Here's a challenge (I will give prizes, as usual, some comics in time for Xmas)

I reckon a logo that somehow features Proper Constantine and Television Constantine in some way is required.

Chas, I'm digging that! Sort of an evolution of The Constantine.

DemonChas, that's a very good idea! Should be used.

I'd just even the layers so they're all on the same eye-level/hed size, and crop this existing image to the tiny banner heights, so that we get just their heads and a bit of the trenchcoat. Plus, throw in a Fabry Conjob in there somewhere. Other than that, tho, it's muy bien.

I'd say that Demon Chas pipped Slinker to this one.

Send me your address by PM, DM and I'll send you a nice prize.

I've finally got round to putting this up there, Chas, and it probably needs some work.
If you have the original file in an easy to manipulate format, the background would be better a smokey bluey grey (especially around Matt Ryan's head). And a bit of what Rogan said.

You can make the image twice as long, maybe add in a couple of Johns and overlay the Constantines a bit less, too. As if they are in an identity parade rather than a procession.

As a personal favour could you put this one in there?

Don't worry too much about the height of the image, as long as there's a little space above the heads it can be cropped accordingly.

Careful!

Actually that gives me an idea.

But Frusin and Higgins might prove too dark ;-)

Might be fair to throw in a surprise appearance by Keanu, somewhere around Frusin/Manco?
