To clarify common questions:
* I'm not looking for an app icon right now. This logo is more for the splash screen/web site for the game.
* I don't need a full font for the logo; the attached lettering is the best I've been able to come up with from existing fonts (and I tweaked the result myself to try to make it better, but I am not a real artist). The right answer may be to do completely custom hand lettering for the words, since I want it to look like it's hand-inked.
The "logos I like" examples are only vaguely related to what I want the Steel Dragons logo to look like.
I've attached the best logo that I was able to come up with as a non-artist. Please don't use it verbatim; just use it to get a vague sense of what my first concept was.
The dragon image is there to give you an idea of what the art looks like. Again I probably don't want this used directly, at least not as-is, in the logo. But if there were a sparse water-color that gave the impression of that dragon as part of the logo? That could be awesome.
When I say a Japanese water color dragon, I don't mean the kind with the bulging eyes. I mean something more like one of these:
Please don't copy either of these; I'm including the links entirely for style. The Steel Dragon is also supposed to look as if he's made out of metal scales, so the color should probably stay in the grey+reflection domain.
Please ask if you have any questions.
