    Exclamation New Logos thanks to your feedback

    Thanks for your feedback on my logo. I decided to stay with the core of the current look,yet adding texture and color. Since what I do is based on ancient scriptural (biblical) teachings, I wanted to continue to use the Papyrus font.

    I'm thinking of going with the purple as the main color (representing royalty), and utilizing the other two based on special events, etc.

    Thoughts?

    *sigh* Papyrus makes it look cheap. I would at least attempt to make it look "old and textured" by hand.

    Also, you completely lose the point of the "old paper" looking background when you make the letter stand out from the "page" with shadowing.

    i agree with mirana about using Papyrus. it's just an overused font.
    to go with the old paper texture, maybe you could use a brushed looking font. and yeah, the drop shadow makes it look too modern and pretty much makes the paper texture irrelevant.
    you can get some great hebrew-looking fonts that still look like the english alphabet from myfonts.com if that's the look you're going for.

    then like mirana said, maybe some hand texturing or just use a texture from an image as a layer mask in ps to get that weathered look on the "K".

    also, the paper texture almost looks like typing paper that was crumpled. maybe try looking on istockphoto.com for some more ancient looking paper textures.
