    Did this one for a friends band. The original is 2560x1440 and looks better then this shrunk down version though.

    That looks spectacular. Except the arrows aren't pointing straight up as if they were maxed out. And what's the band's name? A New Ascension? The cursive 's's really through me off at first, and the 'o' needs to be more circular and closed, I thought it was an a. Finally the spacing between the letters and words needs fixing, the word New should be centered between the other words, and the e in New is too close to the w.

    After looking at it on as my background on my desktop for the past 24 hours, yeah im seeing some stuff too... I see that arrow issue you mentioned too... As for the font, it's based off of a style from Fender (the guitar maker) so it's kinda supposed to be all weirded out like that. Though I do agree with the spacing now that i've looked at it more. The other one that's bugging me is the spacing between the dial inticators at 90* and 270* in relation to the dial in the middle and the ones on either side... They are almost mashed together. I'm also redoing the name plates. They are supposed to look chrome, but aren't so im going to rework that too.

    The part I am super happy with though is the leather at the bottom. The black leather is 4 pieces melded together and the stitched leather is from the edge of a leather belt, scaled down, all recolored to match. It really worked out well.

    Anyways, i'll work on the revamp and post it up here later.

    Thanks for the CC, and yes the band's name is "A New Ascension". They are based in Jacksonville Florida and a friend of mine is the lead vocal and guitar.

    Re: For a friends band WIP

    Ok, just got done doing the rework of this one... I did fix the O in Ascension... And then I just realized that I forgot to fix them in "Rock the World"... GDIT lol...

    Anyways, here's the current rework... Reworked the chrome, all new knobs, indicators, marks and glow...

    But dang it, the "Rock the World" is bugging me know lol.

    I think the arrows in the first look better because they look like they are part of the knobs. The new ones shouldn't have a glow and they're too wide. Even though the marks wouldn't actually glow they add a nice touch. :)

    I love it:D The arrows, however, appear to not be lined up with their tick-marks.
