I'm certainly not the best guy to consult here, but here's my take on it:



The first thing I thought was 'this is a logo, so if this were mine I'd want it to 'pop' visually'. So I drastically darkened your darkest blue and used it for the unlit pieces of ice. I also made them larger (since you complained that it look flat) and gave them more than one color (icy streaks using the dark gray you used on top) to make them better fit in with the logo overall. I then slightly darkened the top of it (it popped a bit too much  :( ), unfortunately turning your palette from four to five colors, since the blue you used previously served as a nice fade from the bright white into the surface of the lettering.

Like I said... I'm not the best, but I tried, taking into account some of the things I've learned on these forums over the past year. I really hope this helps you out.

    Cheers, Olly

Thanks a lot! That is definitely a step in the right direction.

You added a lot of depth to the outline of the pieces. I think the next step would be to give the
blue/white parts a more jagged look. Right now they are a bit flat, just like frozen water seen from above.
I would like them to be jagged, like seeing the rocky mountains from above (which is what I have been
trying and failing miserably at).

Perhaps I can make some more progress with the use of that additional, dark color you added.

I see. Well, I was hoping for inspirational references such as this one:



I'll start working on it and post my progress here as I go along... hopefully
the pixelated letters will look better than the "generated" ones...
Awesome Logo, nice work !

Is it for a 16-32 bits production like Amiga or Atari ST ?
