Well, it's badass, but looks more like a Secret Society symbol more than anything.

It was originally just a Crosshairs type thing. I was told that they wanted a Circle, and Lines like a Crosshair, a larger "dot" in the center, Something like what you would see on an old WWII Machine gun from a plane.

So I did what they wanted, and they weren't excited with the way it looked pre-effects and shading, so while they were cruising google to find something more like what they wanted, I started messing with this. I duplicated it, rotated it, shrank it, and then just adding simple shading.

In the end, We ended up going with something more "modern" looking, and I'm ucrrently in the process of rendering the metal FX filters, so I can get on to the rusting filters.

I agree that it looks more secret society now. I like how the shadows mess with my eyes. It was a lot of fun for 10 minutes of very basic 'shopping.

That looks like a tube made of scaffolding.

That was sort of my thought after I finished goofing with it. I enjoy messing with the ideas that people don't like after they give me a new direction.

We ended up going with an 'old style' crosshair, that he liked a lot more. Once I get done with the image, I'll post it up to show what he was after. It's WAY different than what he originally "thought" he wanted.

I did a little work in graphic design once upon a time. I'm always reminded of this when I hear talk about it again.

The whole thing about what a client has in mind and what the pro comes up with was actually touched upon in one episode of MLP. All my friends in graphic design right away identified with that episode and the plight of the poor character trying to deal with bad clients.

Although, I'd rather summon a Sliver Queen with that mana...

Never did well in tournament play, but damn does it look monstruously powerful when it's in place.
You have *how many* regenerating, flying, first strike slivers? *How much* S/T they got? EACH??
