So i dont if anybody knows the name but im in the professional sniping clan OpTic for modern warfare 2 and a couple of our clan memebers wanted to see who could come up with the sweetest tags and im looking for some helping in making some AWESOME tags.

I have the red bxr a40 s.e. headset and i was looking for some tags that maybe had like a red tiger background and maybe somewhere some crossed pistols or crossed rifles and my gamer tag is III I II III so id really like my gamertag to be on the tags and under the III I II III have the words "barcode" in some sort of shattered text or any cool text works just any combo of those things but id really like my gamertag on them and hopefully red tiger.

your help will be greatly appreciated so if you come up with anything please post the picture.
THANKS GUYS!!!

You're making a lot of quality tags for people LiquidReign. The logo designs blend in with the camo a lot though and make it hard to distinguish. Maybe as a suggestion, you could go with the "Transparency" .png and make the logos and names the transparent black, resulting in those parts being glossy.

Thank You. I agree it does make it hard to see which at the time, it was kind of what i wanted and kind of not. I ended up changing the layer style a bunch of times to different shades of the camo.
This layer style makes the Text easier to see. (Hmm i seem to be having trouble with photobucket...)
-The idea of making the text into the gloss effect is a great one, if Barcode wants it like that i will give it a shot.
Thank you for the constructive criticism.

Great work!

Good call Warblade, I'd also suggest a few things:

- Make the interlacing lines thicker and space them further apart, or take them out all together. They are so fine that the printer may not accurately print the detail.

- Really like the barcode text and image. I'd suggest maybe moving them down a bit or making them larger for readability. Maybe even a more contrasting color.

- The above advice goes for the "Optic" tag work too.

Very cool stuff LiquidReign! Can't wait to see some final work.

Thank You so much for the constructive criticism. It really does help with learning and expanding my abilities with design and photoshop.

Ahhh, much better improvement. With the white lettering / icons, it stands out a whole lot more, and makes it more readable against the red tiger camo.

May just be my eyes (or possibly the font used), but on the words "Optic" I can see a cursive "B" in the middle of the "O". Is that intentional?

unfortunately my skills are not amazing...It is part of the font, but since his name is Barcode I guess it is sort of fitting.

WOW!!!! awesome work man. i really appreciate your time, just a few things that was just a shortened version of my gamertag the full thing is II I III I I II if that fits and i really like the rifles and i will more than likely order those but do you think you could try two crossed m16's to see how it looks but i really like the sniper rifles you used. great work man and feel free to post any pictures of a tag YOU think is sweet.

Liquid your awesome man so i like the last one you put up i believe its the darker rifles with the white text. So if you could possibly make the other optic tag for the other side like a final version that would be great . and i recieved some advice frome t astro staminal and maybe if you moved the rifles up a little bit to where the barcode can expand past the bottom of the handle of the gun so it makes the barcode letters and word bigger so it shows up better. and those will probably be the ones i purchase!!!

So if you want to stick with the first two...The optic is sized so that the mic hole will not cut into the scope.

LiquidReign,
You did some sweet stuff for Barcode. The thing is, I have been playing with Barcode since the Cod2 days, and he is not as good as me. This has nothing to do with the little contest we are in *cough* but i think you should hook a really player up with some tags. All sarcasm aside, I think you produce some pretty nasty stuff. I would be very very thankful if you thought about doing some stuff for me too. My current gamer tags are "Super Muffin23", "Quiik N Nasty",and "Optic Intro"(competition gt and two casual gts). I like the crossed guns, but since i have the white a40s i think digital camo, urban camo, fall camo, and maybe even snow camo would look pretty studly. Although fall and digital are probably my favorites. but i like the white accents to go with my headset. But if you could throw some of those combination around with the different tags that would be amazing (although i already have team competition tags so i dont need any for that). Hey man, I like your work, and thanks in advance! And i appreciate any time you put in.

Hi LiquidReign,

Great work! Love the background. Again, I'd suggest against the finer detailed text for the barcode image and name, and the Optic text. Hope this helps.

Oh, and I'm sure you know this already but remember to use 300DPI!
