Is there any sort of rule or guide about death metal logos? Any kind of advice?
the only thing that needed is enabled mirror mode while drawing, everything else comes from you
>>398746Being unreadable is non-negotionable
make it as ugly and tasteless as possible
Make it as fucking gay as possible, they love that shit. 90s gay. Tribal. Bones. Barbed wire. You know, gay as fuck.
>>398746Try to relate it to the band. Too many are just "cool font" shit but relating the font and style to the band makes it alot better. Look at xasthur's logo for an example. Unreadable and strange, but not just "cool font" like you see with so many bands.
Who can get me a body farm logo sketched out?
>>398952>Tribal. Bones. Barbed wireLiterally none of those things apply to death metal logos
>>398746You draw your letters and just go batshit on them, just keep shaping everything into edgy shit, morph it to be more symmetrical, then go at it again, just don't think about what you're doing, just let your inner edgelord out.Once you like the rough shape you trace that into a clean version and start the real work.
>>398746Guides and rule: dont ask it on 4chan. To many christian dads
>>398746yeah dude, the death metal world is all about the rules
>>399820There are some things that define a metal band logo. That's why he must mean with "rules".Obviously "Party Cannon" stands out among all the logos in the photo, but if you show someone that exact logo they will hardly tell you that it was made for a metal band since it doesn't have any of those crazy shapes.
>>399881All those except 2nd highest most leftmost look boring and shitty as fuck. If you aren't experienced, just write the letters normally first but progressively add more metall-y or gothic-looking elements, take examples from Proclamation and Blasphemy.
I made a bottle label for my friends mead
My friend did that logo op! He has an entire youtube collection of him creating his logoshttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UClFFJUXTpB2zr-fzVbDC06g
you guys have any favorite metal fonts? ive been using Black Castle, Amador, Baroque Text, and Cabadon a lot and need some more.
>>398746the easy/lazy way to get the base look before you add the thorns n shit is to type out the name in a font and then erase some of the edges
>>398952you never saw a death metal logo
>>398952this guy AVOIDS goth girls
>>401363nigas in soundcloud rap game now use metal logos and pretend to worship satan cuz da whitepipo are kinda sophisticated n sheeeeit
>>401363>>401366yep, sad state of affairs we're in I'm afraid. today's mac demarco/garden kiddies are catching up with goth/memphis rap aesthetics, so get ready to see that shit all over the place from now on
Just here to post Aesthetic shit.
just made this, it was pretty fun
either one of these, you name it>write it as if you were carving it out of someone's skin for a summoning ritual>write it as if you were being enlightened by god himself to write down the new testament in an angelic language and the word is so powerful the spacetime fabric can barely contain it>give it some weird alien organic aspect>it's a dry tree
>>400246"I en hall med flesk og mjød"?
>>401822It's alright but you need to work on that anti-aliasing.
>>401979it is pretty rough. i didnt vectorize it i just made the basic shape in procreate then started messing with it in photoshop. any other critiques? a lot of stuff ive made lately just feels like design plus generic bg. wondering if i need to add more elements or something. >>401957ty c:
