It looks like these are stretched horizontally. I think they'd look better at their original aspect ratio.

Great idea for a badge set.


I understand the horizontal issue... but I wanted the mb's to be recognizable... and this was the best I could do with the source material

Good looking badge you've got there. Some suggestions:

First, you could use some transparency on the outside of the circle.
Second, darken the letters so you can see what they are. Yellow almost never comes out well on light-colored backgrounds. The red and green could be a little darker too.

Out of curiosity, is there some policy drawing a line as to which kinds of weapon fan badges can be added? What about automatic weapons that are banned in many countries but perfectly legal in some others? If a pistol badge is OK, is there any reason a Uzi badge should not be OK?

What if you mirror the M? Right now it looks fainter on the right side and the lower right serif kind of disappears.

It's also too bad there are 2 rows of black pixels at the top but only one at the bottom.

The M is now one pixel taller than the D, which looks slightly squished, and the circle appears to be one pixel taller than it is wide.

Ironic


The irony mark or irony point (؟) (French: point d’ironie) is a punctuation mark proposed by the French poet Alcanter de Brahm (alias Marcel Bernhardt) at the end of the 19th century used to indicate that a sentence should be understood at a second level (e.g. irony, sarcasm, etc.). It is illustrated by a small, elevated, backward-facing question mark.

Both letters should be symmetrical. There's also too much noise in there.
Make them both 6 pixels tall with 2 rows of pixels between them and a 1 pixel border.

Here's a quickie (no red circle > I only have MS Paint on this computer):

i'm the only one who find very weird such amount of weapon-related badges? I find odd weapon badges by themselves, but even if you like them, i think the calibers are just too much in my opinion. As would be adding not every motorcycle or car brand, but also tyre-size badges...

I was using the logo, which has a very tiny line between the letters. Redrawing it from scratch might be better, but I couldn't trust myself with it being similar.

The noise I can too little about; I've given up on the logo scan and asked the designer for a cleaner version. That won't fix the assymetry, though, so maybe it's better off redone from nothing.

Isn't the irony that if you have to point it out it's no longer an irony


PS: Nice.
