    Hey DDD113, I have an idea, what about a anime and manga toy company in Japan that sponsors some for the AG racing teams on Slipsteam GX? It might be a good idea or not, just give it a try. Here some videos what is a itasha car is.

    No way that anime stuff is just bogus. It could have a sort of Japanese ad thing going on but not directly linked to anything anime. For instance, there are so many sponsors for the FX350 with those sorts of Japanese ad colour schemes with really bright and contrasting hues e.g. Joy Noodles. I'm still in the process of making a few sponsors, it's just that I don't have time to finish them. I also work in Flash which is a bit more tedious that AfterEffects. It's so annoying having so many ideas but not being able to do anything about it.

    EDIT: HOOOLLY CRAP! Dreadofmondays that was really, really good. I have something like that cooking up.

    i tend to agree with dreadofmondays, need some futuristic fonts going, would add a lot to the logos

    And no kronic.. anime is not a reference for wipeout stuff.... TDR is where it's at
    Japan nightlife is however, stuff like this; http://photos.travellerspoint.com/91...u..o_night.jpg
    At least that's what gets me inspired, since i don't know what those signs say, i just tend to use their shapes in some way ^^

    I really hope you aren't offended, but if I'm going to be honest I think I prefer TypeProton's sponsors. They just look more like sponsors designs you would see in real life. I believe a major part of this comes down to font choice. It seems like you're going for a futuristic feel but in some of them it just comes off as hard to read or tacky (the opposite of what a sponsor would want).

    This isn't to say I don't like any of them though. For the most part they are decent and there are a couple I really like (this one for example http://puu.sh/4Xf3Y.png, nicely done)! The ones I have the biggest problems with are http://puu.sh/4Xf5p.png and http://puu.sh/4Xf6j.png. Besides the font, color scheme is also a problem at times and either make the text not stand out enough or in the worst case, blend in. To put it more concretely, for Labranth I kind of like this color scheme showcased here: http://s6.photobucket.com/user/pchal...ranth.jpg.html

    Also I'm a little worried that you took Rising Up which TypeProton made but none of the others. Does that mean his other sponsors like Levicore and Terrafirma won't make it into the game? =( And I'm not sure the gradient effect is an improvement over the original that TypeProton uploaded before. But that part isn't a big deal.

    I also really hope to see rdmx's sponsor from a few pages back as well as Sausehuhn's sponsors.

    It's impressive what you all have come up with =)

    And again, I wouldn't have posted if not for the fact that I really admire the work you all are doing and want to see this succeed to the greatest extent possible.

    TypeProton did RS, Typeproton also did a number of others like Levicore and Terrafirma. They are great and they will be in, but I didn't include them here because they weren't 'mine' so to speak (RS strictly isn't mine either, but I did vectors of it and wanted to include it as an example).
    RDMX's and Sausehuhn's sponsors are going to be in as well, once we've got them down to the standard sizes
    Thanks for the feedback on those two; good considerations, I'll see if I can make them better. (Although I like Labranth in it's current form). As for the other sponsors, hopefully I can get better with time and experience.
    Thanks for the support

    I umderstand what you saying, but there is a Super GT team called Goodsmile Racing have been doing it around in 2008 as a sponsor before becoming Goodsmile Racing in 2010 and the company was formed in 2001. They been using Hatsune Miku for the team mascot when Goodsmile Racing team was formed. Here the Goodsmile Racing team website for the Super GT team that I was getting my ideas from. If you don't like the idea what I'm coming from, just PM me on my WZ page or message me on my PSN. Thanks

    I think the secret behind TDR is to keep it minimalistic, in my art classes we were told never to use more than 3 colors for logos as they become a total mess, same goes for fonts, but the constraint is 2 there (preferably 1), a good trick to see if your logo works is to have a billboard sized one and then scale it down til an stamp logo and see if it still reads nicely

    @kronic wipeout isn't your everyday/ real life racing game

    I know Cipher I'm just thinking outside the box to the Slipstream GX team, but it didn't work well as I expected. Thanks for your input.
