    So Jeff has reviewed this thread on ideas for a UO name to use. All great producers have them right?

    Gryphon tapped into Jeff's Greek heritage and most felt it descriptive of him.

    Phase II is coming up with a signature that would appeal to Jeff. The decision is totally up to Jeff but please submit your concepts here for his review.

    Once he selects his signature the chosen artist will receive a Legacy Token Code as a thank you from UO Stratics.

    Please remember when creating a signature design:

    The image should be within the RoC

    Image designs should have a maximum size of 600 x 125 pixels or 50kb.

    You can submit as many designs as you like

    Have fun!

    Well I do play a bit with sigs... I've made several of my own and many for friends. And I have a love of art. I just hope Jeff likes it.

    A good sig should have his twitter info for people who may want to contact him.
    I wish I had some original gryphon art, or some I had permission to use. I'd love to give it a try.

    Here is one entry.

    • The map is a derivative work courtesy of Hawkeye Pike's Ultima Online Travelogues' derivative work of Ultima Online's map of Sosaria.
    • The original artist of the gryphon is unknown... as several individuals claim ownership.
    • The Ultima fonts Avatar was created by C.J. Ellsworth, and Britannian Runes was created by Norwick... hosted by Game Font Database and Ultima Aiera.
    • EA, BioWare, and Mythic images, intellectual properties, licenses, trademarks and mongbat ribs belong to Electronic Arts.
    • All copyrights and/or trademarks belong to their respective holders and/or licensors.

    I'll play too, just to keep the numbers up. I can't compete with the real artists and I wouldn't claim the prize anyway.

    Just as a matter of interest, where did the spelling come from for 'Gryphon' all references I check show the spelling as 'Griffin' : meaning

    griffin
    A fabulous beast with the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion.

    I can't find anywhere it referenced as written so am wondering where it originated?

    Thanks everyone for the submitting ideas! Nok, yours is my favorite so far. I like how clean and easy to read it is. Could you remove the Mythic logo? Change the runes to say Ultima Forever and add my twitter address (@Jeff_Skalski)? Really dig it.

    Rock'n. Last request. Can you make the one pixel border the same color all the way around? Much like what you have on the bottom border of the signature.
