    Kropotkin,

    Just wanted to say the badge looks awesome again this year. i was wondering how you'd top last years pip-boy rear art, but this is just fantastic.

    I could be wrong, but I think this is something Kroptkin runs on the Thursday night in the Sheraton lobby for those wanting to get their table-top on before PAX itself.

    In the lobby/Bar area of the Sheraton, many PAX-ers gather to play board/card/etc. Games the night before PAX. I looked in last year on my way through the WSCC area to somewhere else, it looked pretty fun.

    I am new here and looking forward to participating in the unofficial pax events.
    I am a ferry ride away from the event, so cookies are something I can help with, easily.
    Edit: If I can get in, the Magical Mystery Tour and pre pax dinner are two I would love to do.

    I do not run the Pre-PAX gaming night, I simply attend it. It is just a group of PAX attendees who decide to play some board games in the lobby of the Sheraton on Thursday night.

    It's a really good way to play new games. We got in on a game of Resistance at PAX East this year and my husband became hooked. I think we played it 5 or 6 times. Also if you have a game you love, bring it with you.

    This is a new design for the front of the badge. I've added some colour, but not much, and toned down the film grain. Let me know what you think.

    Overall I approve. It looks awesome If I wanted to be incredibly picky (and why not, I'm a silly goose like that sometimes) I might up the grain just a bit more (somewhere between the two). If I wanted to be super picky I'd say add wrinkles instead of grain.
    But if you chose niether of those I'd still be impressed ;).

    Edit: Corrected typo, fixed tone.

    I must not be as picky as @tsrblke cause I think it looks great. That said, I can barely draw a stick man to save my life, so I can't exactly complain.

    I love the added color and would be proud to wear this!

    Hey now, I did say those would be over the top, call them "Stretch goals" if you will! I think it looks great as is. Just figure I'd throw in some critique to move from "AWESOME" to "EPIC"

    The horse was specifically chosen due to the first pax prank, Bad Horsing. There's a thread bouncing around somewhere that talks about the forum crest design. It's been in use for 4 paxen now.

    Spoiler:

    Ok so this is just my opinion - this looks fantastic and I love it - however I feel like if there's going to be colour it should be blue, the red makes it feel like PAX East. I'm not sure how good that would look though.

    Either way, I'm getting my hands on one of these!

    The shield itself has both red and blue to represent both pax east and pax prime together, but the pax prime logo and blue color are in the badge background to represent pax prime for this specific badge. The forumers logo was designed 4 paxen ago and has become the defacto centerpiece for the forumer badges in place of more general penny arcade logos.

    Yeah, I agree that the red is far more pronounced than the blue.

    It's meant to be a faded effect to reflect the the fact that it's from the 1800's. If you prefer I can revert it back to the 21st century colour version.

    I dunno, I personally like the faded look, but it may help to add a bit more "blue" to the "blue" while maintaining the fade (it does look a bit like grey right now.) Alternatively I could adjust my monitor?

    i do like the faded look, but originally i wasn't aware that it was blue. i thought it was grey and red.

    but i honestly think it looks good! so whatever makes the designer's life easier!
