Ello there. With a new commission coming to me and after the success' of previous ones I thought I'd start to take that step into a more professional direction that I mentioned a while ago. With that, I've been thinking of first starting a Facebook page, nothing fancy, just something to get started, and so I needed a main picture/logo for a watermark. This is what I've been toying with for the past hour...
And just an idea how the watermark may look...
I haven't settled on anything yet, just thought I'd get some imput about the direction it's going. Is this a yes? Complete No No? Give me all you've got, IGMB. It's missing a lot at the moment, I've had to throw it together with GIMP, I haven't done any sort of logo or graphic design for the past 4 years, and even then it was just 2 weeks work experience!
Please help me with this. As you may be able to tell, I've gone with the 'Cosmic' route since that is how most people know me.

Neat! However, I wonder if a different font might work better for the logo? Perhaps using the same font that was used for the titles in Battlestar Galactica, since that would tie into you monicker? Although I don't know how well that would scale down into a watermark...

Heh, I'm almost the opposite... I think the water mark is good but the logo is a bit... pre-teen girly, not your target market Try something darker, but not TOO dark... also more reds and blues rather than pinks and cyans.
Hope this helps, no art programs anymore to mock anything up
I hadn't thought of that, Adken! But now you mention it I agree! I'm quite partial to the elegant style of the watermark, so I think the font will stay. I will darken the logo down, I did actually start it off with a black space background with red and blue lights, maybe I will go back to that.
Thank you Rook. You are an exceptional man, do not let anyone ever tell anything else. You always astound me, by managing to be kind, thoughtful and caring. But also stand tall, be hard as steel and never back down.
If you're still not decided on this I would love to help out. Will require a bit of chatting about the look you want to go for though, as I would prefer to start from the concept phase even if we actually end up with something not dissimilar from what you have produced. I can't say I've done graphic design professionally but at my workplace where a UI or application design has been required I have always been on the design team so I would hope to bring some help with combined efforts.
