Project description

We are a US Army armor unit in the 3rd Infantry Division. Our call sign is the Dark Knights. We are an Armored Tank unit with M1 Abrams Tanks. We are currently deployed to Afghanistan. We are looking for something dark and sinister looking for our mascot/logo. Preferably an old school style knight (like something from a video game) with a shield and a sword. The shield would have a panther on it (Battalion Mascot for 69th Armor Regiment). You could use a horse or tank. He could be on a horse, standing, or kneeling. Don't be afraid to use contrasting colors like red, silver, white, or yellow. The Armor color is yellow. The knight should be "dark" in color for overall armor, but accents like spikes and horns are okay too. I recommend looking up the 69th Armor Regiment on wikipedia to see the BN code of arms to show you what our panther looks like. We would prefer to use that style of panther for the shield. I hope that helps. The knight would have to embody the essence of strength, speed, and power. Prefer Adobe Illustrator files in vector art.

  • Sorry, but I uploaded the designs before seeing punctuation.
  • Please don't keep repeating the same design over again with different colors, it will not affect the decision of the group.
  • Acid and Biker's designs are definately the direction we are looking towards. I like the fact that Acid shows the image in full-color and black & white since both files would be used as we start to order printed items for the Unit.
  • Here is my new design #5, I work with a big shield to represent the tanks, also use the phrase and the design of your "69th Armor Regiment" shield. Place the name "Dark Knights" on the sword, but if you wish you can change location. I hope you like and waiting for your feedback. Thx
  • Here is an update of my first design #4, while I finish the new design of a full body PJ...
  • Hi mshoaf, I'm working on your request to generate a full bodied figure...
  • Looking more for a full figure knight, not just the head and design. Almost too busy to be a logo/mascot.
  • thanks for your feedback. I will work in the new direction
  • I really like the artistic style. I like this design alot, but it has my curiousity peeked at what it would look like as a full bodied figure.
  • The Knight is good, just looking for something more ominous, almost evil looking. Don't be afraid to use contrasting colors like red, silver, white, or yellow. The Armor color is yellow. The knight should be "dark" in color for overall armor, but accents like spikes and horns are okay too. I recommend looking up the 69th Armor Regiment on wikipedia to see the BN code of arms to show you what our panther looks like. We would prefer to use that style of panther for the shield. I hope that helps.
  • Dear CH I would like to know your opinion about # 2 to see if I am in the right direction. In the shield I can draw anything. Hope you like it and I'm waiting for your feedback. Thanks
  • about #22 estimated CH I've uploaded a new design following your recommendations. The knight has more detail and color predominates black armor. I know it's hard to compete with the other designs because I also think they are very good, but I would like fight for the bronze medal. greetings
  • Here's a version with dark colors of my design #20. Also I present a new design more simple #21. I hope you like.!!
  • Sorry, I forgot to place the picture of panther at #18, I had to fix it again the next draft.
  • I think the shield is a little off with this guy too. I love the action of this drawing. Feel free to us a "D" in the shield in some form of design, as we are Delta "d" Company.
  • Detail is definately lacking. Coloring is off...needs to be a dark knight, not golden. I do like the spear. The shield doésn't need to have the BN code of arms...that was just an idea.
  • I would like to see the coloring of this guys to be darker. I really like the way he looks. Other ideas that would be good are a spear, mace, as a weapon. The spear could have a guidon on it. I would like to see the shield changed up some. That is our BN code of arms, but you can use anything. The panther was just an idea. I don't think that shield fits this guy too well. Definately the right direction!
  • I like the diversity of designs that have been provided. The coloring aspect should primarily black or dark grey, hence the "dark Knights". Previous character was black. The accent colors are fine, but the overall dominate color for the guy should be black. Those are things I can work with the winner on though. Thanks.
