Not bad, but why does it say "our_business", with an underscore?

It's just the font.
I suggest you change the font, other then that and the glow on the stock it looks good.

The font needs changing and the placement as well.

Get a font that's more symetric. Put the "xHEWx Clan" in the bottom left hand side, and put the domination sentence in the top right hand side.

Banner <-> logo

But anyway.. It's not really original nor refreshing.. Text seems out of place and the background seems 13 in a dozen..

Go to the signature sub-forum and you'll find a dozen others like this (brush frenzy background and fancy gamerender with basic glowing effects)

That's what I mean with not original..

Besides, the intention was to create a logo.. This isn't a logo, so it basicly failed anyway.. It's not half bad as a banner or sig, but this sure as doodles isn't a logo..

Or maybe he used the word in the wrong sense. A lot of people do it. It's called "making a mistake".

Perhaps he meant banner. Ever think of that?

I'd like you to post a picture to me that looks similar to that. I don't care how many brushes he used. How many times he rotated the image and merged it. I don't care how many pictures were blended or anything. I care that the banner/sig/whatever it is looks good, and flows well. Well, if you notice, it looks absolutely flawless other than the text displacement.

I find it quite original. For a black/white- color banner, it's really well done. I see a lot of people try to put a black and white background in with a color stock and do an absolutely terrible job. Kaination happened to do very well.

Kain, just fix the text and it will be perfect :)

::EDIT::
I absolutely love what you did with the stock, it looks really clear and crisp, and makes it really nice to look at. Very good job.

Logo - A name, symbol, or trademark designed for easy and definite recognition, especially one borne on a single printing plate or piece of type.

He just said he meant banner...

I dont like the placement of the words, but it still looks pretty good. Maybe have the clan name on the top center, and clan on bottom center. Then the first half of the sentence on the left side and the other half on the right side. I've never made a banner, so I'm just throwing ideas at you.

Congratulation..

"Easy and definite recognition"

a) This doesn't stand out, as I said thirteen in a dozen.. So there goes the easy and definite recognition.
b) A logo is something powerful, something simple that can still have a great impact (everybody knows the pepsi-logo, everybody knows the Apple-logo, because they're simple, yet powerful)

As I said, this is a banner, this is as far from a logo as you can get.. Banner yes, logo no.. If he said "here's a banner for my clan's site" then I would notify him about design flaws.. But since he originaly stated it was a logo, this image fails at all areas..
A banner can contain a logo, this is true.. But a logo should not contain banners, mission-statements and screenshots/images not made by themselves..

But all of this doesn't matter anymore.. He said it was a banner..

I already said that the text/font is out of place and that the background isn't something that makes me go "whoa".. Been there, done that, that's the feeling I get when watching this..

Besides that -> render from a gamecharacter, added glow \o/ Nothing special

Here's a good font i think would work if you know how to make it look metallic: http://photobucket.com/albums/b356/Snowboarder7497/?action=view&current=Zclan.jpg

Something like that or close to it. Something clean and crisp that is easy to read.

I know according to Kimfu it's not "original". But i figure (unlike some) that it's not going to become famous worldwide like oh say pepsi or apple. So attractiveness is all i'm going for. And so far it looks great.
