Can you do this design with just a little more color in it? Not sure what color(s), but just a little contrast. I like the original though ... cool idea.

Hope I'm moving in the right direction!

Definitely moving in a good direction. Can you try a cross similar to #32 uses? Doesn't have to be exact, just something like it. Thanks!

Can you take #34 but separate it somewhat? Specifically, our jackets will have 3 patches on the back.

The top rocker will be the name "Forgiven Sons". We really like your font, but can we put it on a separate arch as our top rocker?

Then the middle will be the cross and wings. But can you fill in the cross, so that the holes are not in it?

Then the bottom rocker will be another arch, upward direction, to mirror the top arch. It will say "PS421"

Does that make sense? We really like your ideas. Thanks!

Of all the entries, I still like the font that you use. It's my favorite.

#69 and #68 have the look that we're going for ... basically 3 pieces ... top, middle, bottom.

If you can break yours up like those, it will be a definite candidiate.

Also, the cross that the guys used in #69 and #68 is close to what we're looking for.

I think this one is along the lines of what you're looking for?

This is really close. Can you try this one but instead of banners, just use arches, kind of like #68 and #69 did? We're not sure if we want a scroll banner like you have used, or just simple arches. Also, maybe make the arches more arched than they currently are (if that makes sense).

Thanks for modifying. This is still one of our favorites.

Please let me know if this is arched enough!

Can you do #81 with the top and bottom piece squared off like #78? And also maybe the gold background on the top and bottom with a black font like you did in #72.

Unfortunately, I think that would make my entry too close to #78. If I come to close to copying another's design, I risk having all of my entries removed. I would be happy to make any other changes you can think of!

Jason:

I understand.

What about changing colors? I'm not opposed to having the cross, the wings, and the font and background of the banners being some other colors altogether ... as long as they are "tough", "cool", "manly".

I think we need the top and bottom rockers to be squared off though.

If all this still is too much like the other, I'm still open to other ideas for the cross and wings ... maybe something even tougher looking there?

I really like your font and your ideas so I'm trying to stay open. I have not locked into the designs showing ranked 1 or 2.

Added a crown of barbed wire/thorns and some flames, revised the rocker shapes and changed some of the coloring.

Added a sprocket in back to fill out the shape.

Per your request: Wings are 10% larger and font changed to black. I left the red outline (for now) because I think it still adds to the design and better fits the traditional rocker design.
