Looks great! Unless someone notices anything else that needs tweaking on this one, I think it's ready to go to press (as the saying goes).

The only other thing I can see at all is the bit marked in red.  On the real thing it looks as though the two edges overlap perfectly creating the illusion of an almost straight line, whereas as on yours the bolder one is clearly curved and dominant:

I hope you get what I mean.
In this next one, I think the two marked circles need to be bigger as on the original they some closer to touching the other edges:
   [For Images See Above]
The one in green just a smidgen, and the one in red a bit more than that...
Finally this on:
   [For Images See Above]
I think the pair in green need to be nudged down until just barely clipping the outer ring.  Then the one in red I think needs it's radius reduced a tiny little bit and then nudged slightly off of the thick circle (towards the centre) so it doesn't cut into it so much.
I'll leave you alone now!  ;D


Awesome, thanks Temporal Engineer, you've a very good eye for the small details here;
hopefully I've done them all right to your specifications.

First here i've made the largest Gallifreyan text style ring a little thinner, so it looks more as if it matches the ring its connected to;

Second i have made the circles bigger;

Finally i have moved the top ring and made it slightly smaller, and the small ring on the bottom has been made smaller too;

Looking really great, the doctor who2! And I just noticed something. Your drawings have this little number at the bottom (see red arrow and circle):
TARDIS_Logo#01.06.jpg
Do those numbers indicate which order the symbols appear on the whirligig? And if they do, are you counting them clockwise or anticlockwise as they move around the structure? Also, the symbol that temporal engineer says looks perfect (which it does) has no "#" on it. Does it mean you're not sure which position this one is in?

Just my cat-like curiosity acting up... again! ;)

Well there a little cataloging system I've made so i don't loose track of what are the new ones. They aren't the ordering of the symbols. Just a means for me not to get confused. so '#1' are the first draught, then if something needs adjusting then it'll be '#2' second draught and so on, thats why one of the recent ones says '#5' thats the 5th of that symbol I've adjusted.
And if it doesn't have a number, so the first couple, it's because i hadn't thought of adding the numbering system till i started adjusting and making duplicates.

It's mostly to help me but can also let you guys know which is the most recent, of that particular symbol :)
hope that settles your curiosity :)

Here we go symbol number 5, quite a simple one this time;

Anything wrong let me know :)

Kingpin

The pair of circles roughly 10 o'clock on the symbol, it looks like the outer circle should be a little thicker... so that the outer ring should almost be touching the semi-circle and the ring second closest to the outside of the whole design.

Thanks, the doctor who2, for explaining those little numbers. I did something similar with the revisions to my St. John logo, only I put the revision number in the file name so it wouldn't get in the way of the logo (though I suppose I could have tucked it into one of the corners since the logo is round). So yeah; curiosity satisfied. (You know the saying: "Curiosity killed the cat; finding out brought it back.")

I've got a little to add to what Kingpin's already mentioned about your newest whirligig symbol. The circle at about 7 o'clock should be a bit smaller than it is, judging by the gap between it and the inner semicircle. (The gap between it and the thick circle is fine.)

Also, the double circles at about 2 o'clock (on the innermost large circle) look like they should be a tiny bit smaller as well, so that the innermost large circle touches them at not quite in their middle, but a little "off center", if you know what I mean. Don't change their position; keep the gap between the thick circle and the double circles the same; just make the double circles a tad smaller.

Dino.

No probs, Galacticprobe :) the only way to get to know something is to ask

Here we go, Using Kingpin's and Galacticrobe's suggestions, here is the new updated symbol.
If there is still anything that needs adjusting let me know;

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Um, no pressure, I've only got Wednesday and Thursday morning to get my printing done (Australian time). It'd be great to have the images by then but, truly, don't rush yourself on my behalf. Whatever happens happens.

and ill be here till Tuesday and very busy during the day.

:S Sorry

EDIT: I can try and upload smaller sized images if your desperate for them but i only have tonight?

If you want to send them to me, I'll upload them to one of your posts.
In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,
Public Enema Number One.

Thank you Rassilonsrod, but i've managed to get around the crap(Sorry RUBBISH) internet. But thanks for offering :)
I've managed to upload the symbols to my Photobucket Account. I've had to make the images smaller but hopefully they have kept there quality.
Right this first Album has the Finished Symbols from above:
http://s789.photobucket.com/user/theDoctorWHO2/library/Symbols/Finished

This next album has all the unfinished and which some haven't appeared on here yet to be checked by out keen eyed members. But ill be updating the folders as they are finalised;
http://s789.photobucket.com/user/theDoctorWHO2/library/Symbols/Unfinished
This was done in a hurry so if I've put multiple symbols in a folder or there are ones missing let me know.

But remember the ones in the 'Unfinished Folder' are that unfinished and haven't been checked.

While i'm posting on here, found these a while ago which might come in handy here instead of being stuck in a folder on my Computer.
Since the BBC have the symbols they seem to be using them a lot at the moment
