On to a new page and half way thru the poll, we've got 20 voters. With a few double orders, I'd say a minimum 25 order placement is very likely.
Three things I'd like to mention.
From the moment T
was first posted in the orignal grill badge thread, it was envisioned that borders and writing would appear in gold/brass colour too. After playing with photoshop I managed to colour the writing in so I've changed that badge to reflect this. It's more representative of how the badge will look. I still can't draw an inner and outer brass coloured rings which will bound the blue section. All badges are supposed to have such borders and whilst Andrew drew them in originally, my prowess at photoshopping managed to obliterate them.
Secondly, whilst learning a few more tricks in photoshop, inspired by Andrew's latest 116 creations and observing the two most popular badges I came up with another combining both. I voted for H
but was a bit worried that there may not be enough contrast for the 116 shape to be visible in H
so I applied the 116 shape and colour to T
. My issues with including it in the poll are:
-I'm not to sure that it would be ethical to be included in the poll at this stage.
-I think part of the reason people have voted for T
, and S
for that matter, is that apart from looking good most of these voters don't want the 116 shape included.
-My last issue is technical. With dimples in the background, I'm not sure how the 116 shape and lines will transfer from artwork to the real badge.
The third thing I'd like to mention is that I'm going to contact the badgemaker Arnie Brown
to get some input on the technical issues on the leading badges so far, pricing, delivery and payment options etc.
FWIW, here's my latest conglomeration based on the popularity of H
give some feedback on whether I should just forget about it, play fair and leave the poll alone - or - is it worth replacing one of the nill vote badges with this one. Cheers, Simon.
