I'll try and put something together for you when I get home later today. I'm not the most professional designers, by any means, but I can try.

if you want to pick a font and colors I can whip that up in about 30 seconds lol

Might be better if you rotate the end result.

Yeah that looks pretty cool thanks man! Say I want to use it as an avatar, can anyone make it so it blends into the background? For example, if you look at Rek_Aviles avatar, it blends into the background. Anyone know how to do this?

Where did you get it? I can't do it with the program I have because of the picture you gave us.

I can make something a bit more involved, but I had a few minutes at work to do that.

I could make you something like my soundcloud one:
https://i1.sndcdn.com/avatars-000033185814-ha57ik-t200x200.jpg?86be403

and have it set to blend.

The edge isn't the smoothest where the shadow is, but when it's the size of an avatar you won't see that.

EDIT - Here's a 100 x 100 pixel one: -

Kinda hard to read the text on the record though, because of the way it turns to a darker shade.

I can change the text. But how did you get rid of the white? I tried it but wouldn't on that image for some reason.

Baller95

Sweet how'd your do that Sigma?! Defiance, the text across the record like your soundcloud one looks good for sure!! You think you can get "DJ" on the top and "BALLER" on the bottom in white text with the curved design you've put earlier?

Sure I'm not home, I'll do it tomorrow though. You want text similar to whats in your avatar now? Color pref?

I used the magic wand tool in Photoshop to select the main part of the image, then deleted the rest. You can also use Select - Colour Range - click on any white area, then hit delete, although that will delete all white from the image which may not be what you want. Then save it in a format that supports transparency, such as PNG.

It's hard to make anything look good with that design when it's avatar size, but this is about the best I can do and still have the name readable: -

Thanks sounds good man! You can use this font with white text (invert the black to white somehow?) - http://www.dafont.com/hand-printing-press-meshed.font

Ah cool thanks man! I'm thinking of getting PS in the future so I'll remember that!

I dunno man. I'm no designer, haha. I know some of the basics of Photoshop but that's it. For a basic design like that, you could do with someone that has a good eye for fonts to help you out. Obviously it also has to be easily readable at 100 x 100 if you're going to use it as an avatar on here.

i would just drop the idea of wrapping the text, like sigma says its hard to read when shrunken down and tbh its a bit "clip art" in style, a bit "1995 mobile disco" i would put the text on top and across the record.

Yeah I agree, it does look much better across the record and definitely more readable! I'll save every one of these, thanks guys! Now I gotta find a good lookin font.

@Alan - I'm not sure about the first one lol but the second one looks quite simple and nice!

I'm actually feelin this, the simplicity is nice! Now can we get the background so it'll be transparent?

It's gotta be the chrome look, I like it! So having the name across the record with that chromish color would look pretty sweet I think!
