I did a few of these for the Antares, Korolev, Erewhon & Deneva sheets and decided to play about with the templates and do a few extra just for fun.

This is between my favorite stuff from Trek fan art... I guess it's somewhat simple for you to make compared to those ellaborated logos you always pull, but still! [Wink]

Keep them coming, Rev.

I'm sure there's a reason I should already be aware of, but why is the Antares name smaller and below its registry, unlike the other plaques?

Creative licence. For some reason I thought it'd be interesting to put more emphasis on the number than on the name.

I like the one for the Santa Maria since it's different than the standard format. But why "The" Santa Maria?

For the shadowing on the text & logos, are you just using a drop shadow? It looks to me like they are hovering over the plaque, rather than being carved/extruded from it. It's really evident on Antares' UESPA logo.

It's probably due to the font you're using, but it looks like there's a space (or partial space) before the last letter of DENEVA on both the Deneva's and LaSalle's plaques.

Those may be a bit nitpicky, but overall, nice work!

I originally only did some for the schematic sheets, on which they are rather small so not really meant to hold up to too close scrutiny, it's all rather quick and dirty, but yes the shadow on the UESPA bugs me a little.

As for THE Santa Maria; if you recall it's not a Starfleet ship and I modelled it after THE Raven's plaque.

I'm assuming you're using Illustrator, does it have a tool similar to Corel's "The Boss" that creates a mesa effect?

He uses PSP as has been mentioned in other threads. I don't know what he's using to make the effects, but I have an EyeCandy plugin for PSP that has several effects like beveling, embossing, shadows, etc.

I have to be honest I rarely play around with those funky effects and plugins so I've probably got more than I realise. Anyway, here's what I probably should have done.

Yes, much much better ... no floating text anymore.

Did I tell you already I like your UESPA logo?
