I have to say I like the first two best, most especially the second one. The eye in the first is very well blended and is simple - which perhaps speaks more than having text and all the sort across it. The second though, is more intricate and mixes colors and patterns quite well. If you use photoshop, there's a couple tricks you can use to blend things in more seamlessly, such as the hearts in the second picture or Vin in the third - the quickest is by use of a mask layer. But, that all depends on what program you use. heh



In either case, you have a good start on things, keep it up!

I agree with Roan it is a good start however, I will say the only one I really like is the second but it is busy. You should learn to add boarders and space your graphics. If you use Photoshop learn to photo filter and layer style them. It will show such a greater presentation believe me. I remember when I learned that alone caused my graphics to look 100 percents better.



Now not really on the graphic I am just confused why for a sith would you use the Triquetra symbol? I don't know if you are away that the Triquetra is a universal symbol of a trinity of goodness. Wiccans/Pagans use it to represent the Triple Goddess being the Maiden, Mother, and Crone, or also to represent the Holy Trinity in Christianity. In extent it is a symbol of light and holy properties. The Triquetra with the intertwined ring represents the Aether or Spirit that ties humanity to the Goddess. Even in Christianity the Ring represents the universal continuity of the Holy Trinity showing them as a single entity.



I understand in the SW world it could mean something else, but still I thought I should let you know =P.



Look up symbolism it is some fun stuff. </div>

Kris was done in Paint, and was a three minute throw tegether type thing, and the other one is an old one I made one day when I was bored

I use it in the Celtic meaning which is a symbol for luck, but yes, I understand its meaning in the several different religions, and I do know the symbolism behind the things, if I wanted a good one for a true sith I would probably have used Eohl, which is the rune for protection, or the rune for death (I don't remember the name) </div>
