    Is it a vector?

    I only ask because the first M looks very clean and crisp, whereas the agma look a bit off, almost vexel/pixelated.

    They also seem a bit like they were slapped on as an after thought. Whereas the capital M is very stylised, they just don't seem to sit right. I love the capital M though :D

    No offense, just what I got from my first glance :)

    I like the M on it's own. Nice work.

    I've got an issue with the flames, magma technically doesn't have flames as it's a superheated liquid (melted rocks etc) and any flames that are seen are usually due to things burning on contact.

    I know why you've used them but that would just bug the hell out of me

    Becky makes an interesting point, does the 'agma' have a slight emboss?

    Lol @ Levi.

    Might be a slight inner shadow. On a better monitor now, sort of looks that way. Either way something appears a little 'off'. Or it's just my crappy eyesight :)

    Thanks for the opinions people

    I prefer the M on its own two! As for the flames, I just can't see this M melting or something, so you'll just have to be bugged by it haha.

    As for whats on the "agma" there's a stroke thats just a little darker than the background and maybe the M doesnt look as sharp as there is no Gradient background on the Magma version

    Thanks to all anyway!

    Tell you what though, the more I look at that M, the more I look at the white and the red and see an M and a V.
    Anyone else see that?

    I was thinking the same as Levi. Perhaps you shouldn't look at a melting M, but more of a boiling/bubbling M.

    But either way it looks pretty good

    Also, not sure if anyone would agree but the M looks like it has a V inside ... so reads to me, like MV...

    *(just realised someone else mentioned it too)
