Help SF-O: Rank Insignia Images


DZComposer

Recommended Posts

With IPB4 nearing and the SF-O overhaul coming, I want to replace the rank images we have with ones that make more sense for Star Fox.

The current ones are USMC rank insignias. I'd rather them look a little more like they come from the Lylat System rather than the US Department of the Navy.

So, if any of you designers/artists out there want to contribute to SF-O, this is a chance! I could make them myself, but I am no artist and my Photoshop skills are pretty lame, so I am opening this design up before I redesign them myself to see if the community can offer something better than what I can do.

The new insignias DO NOT HAVE TO LOOK LIKE THE OLD ONES! You can be creative!

I haven't decided on a theme color scheme yet, but I'm thinking medium/dark grays instead of blacks.

The ranks and current insignia:

Lurker: No insignia (Don't bother making an insignia for lurkers. Lurkers have 0 posts, and thus people won't see it as when the post they immediately become enlistees)

CDF Enlistee: cdfenl.png (This may be renamed "CDF Recruit")

CDF Private: cdfpvt.png

CDF Private First Class: cdfpfc.png

CDF Corporal: cdfcpl.png

CDF Sergeant: cdfsarge.png

CDF 2nd Lieutenant: cdf2lt.png

CDF 1st Lieutenant: cdf1lt.png

CDF Captain: cdfcap.png

CDF Major: cdfmaj.png

CDF Lieutenant Colonel: cdfltcol.png

CDF Colonel: cdfcol.png

CDF Brigadier General: cdfbrgen.png

CDF Major General: cdfmajgen.png

CDF Lieutenant General: cdfltgen.png

CDF General: cdfgen.png

Auxiliary Staff: auxstf.png

Moderator: mod.png

Administrator: admin2.png

I will not be adding ranks nor will I disclose how many posts are needed to achieve them, though I will say they are not on a linear scale.

The new site will feature a contributors page. If your designs are chosen, you will be credited there.

is there some little piece of Star Fox flotsam that might offer an inspiration for a set of insignias?

EDIT: I need to find a better font, but it's a start.

And here I kind of like the current rank insignia. It looks professional, and if my memory recalls, the same badges are also used in scifi such as Halo and the Alien movies.

I am 0% artist, but I scrambled around on the R* Social Club Crew Emblem Creator to at least provide a possible template in hopes to allow some influence/variety on the matter. I severely hope this helps.

If not the originals, I do kinda like Hidi's. Only thing is that I wish is that we could somehow keep the rank look to them. But alas, beggars can't be choosers.

I am taking a liking to Hidi's, though might I recommend that the word "for" be removed - just having Starfox-Online beneath the rank looks better IMO. Perhaps each different rank could be represented by the silhouette of something from the games in addition?

I had a concept for that that I had been considering, but the concept I posted, I thought of suddenly, and it was very easy for me to do.

Hidi's are not guaranteed to be used. No one has yet to post a full set of rank images, so I have nothing yet to really pick from.

Hidi's do look nice, though the decapitated fox heads are a little creepy...

Humor aside, let's not forget the actual purpose of this thread, please.

Jajajaja.

 

I like the old ones! But a change isn't bad either. I don't really know how to make things like this, otherwise I would. I have some ideas but they're also very cute ideas and I'm not sure you want a kawaii SFO.

 

 

Or do you?

I made some ikks but if I like this idea by the end of the night I can refine them into nngs. I still need a colour pallet tho'.

Those movies, though, acknowledge the existence of Earth and humans.  They use the US Navy's rank insignia because in the case of Halo, that's the standard NATO ranking system, which is what the UNSC is, and in the case of Alien, it's just convenient.
