I'm making this logo for my band, and this is my basic design:



From here, there's so many things i could do with it. But, i don't want to overdo it or under-do it.
Is there anyone who's experienced in photoshop that could give me some suggestions?
Should i just leave it the way it is?

Thanks in advance.

Woah, resize.

The power to feel with others give.

Illustrator is what it should be done in. It can be re-sized so easily, as Photoshop is merely an photo editing program.

It have a line of blue sky; and clouds. Just wider than the words, but still as long and not bleeding over the outside.

I suppose it's time to get Illustrator then.. haha.

I say lose the circle/splatter thing. The text looks pretty good though.

What do you suggest to accompany the text then..?

I don't know. I've looked at it for a while and can't think of anything. Sorry.
Does it really need anything? Like I said, the text looks alright on its own.

Maybe a different font or something, but I'd try to keep it pretty simple.

I'm not really sure.. maybe it's because i took like an hour just drawing that circle thing that i want to keep it in there hahaha. I could definitely just have the text.

The circle doesn't look bad, I just think it doesn't quite look right with that writing. It might be something to do with the big spaces between the text and the ring.
I just think if you keep it simple it would look better.

"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

Ok, i messed with it and came up with more things to compliment the circle, and added color.
What do you think?

rainbow colour schemes are fruity

flames, blood, and dying children, however...

The logo is a LOT more interesting and eye-catching now. Although, the grey shadow on the black text makes it a bit difficult to read. :/ I do really like it now!

just find a pic of something you like online that is not well known and manipulate it. i made this in 5 min with a pic from deviant art, some photo filters and text blending options. if you happen to go big time, i suggest informing the artist before you commercially use their art. if its just a small project i don't see it being a problem.

Nah.
I can't stand being any bit unoriginal.
Using someone else's art is like taking a ton of riffs out of a ton of different songs and putting them together in one song that you call your own.
Unless, of course, the artist made the art specifically for you.

SilentDeftone is right.... a band logo needs to be visually arresting but also a lot simpler. think of it this way..... it needs to look good on business card size flier and a massive banner behind your drummer
