Nod Defense Initiative by Botskiz Nod Defense Initiative by Botskiz
When Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars released a few weeks ago, I couldn't help but notice how much I like the new GDI and Nod logos.

Being bored (as usual) I decided to recreate the logos with a little twist (no pun intended), by using the GDI style for the Nod logo and vice versa.

This is the first one, a GDI-styled Nod logo, completely made from scratch. There's a whole eagle on the original GDI logo, which made me want to use a whole scorpion for this logo, too, instead of only the tail, like in the original Nod logo. I also made sure there are no curves in the scorpion, since the GDI eagle doesn't have any, either. All in all, I'm quite happy with the result.

If you like this logo, please take a look at the "Global Brotherhood" counterpart.

you are a sick genious ;)

although I hink the GDI Logo from C&C3: Tiberian Sun looked better than the one of Tiberian wars ;)

now I will take a look if you have more great work done ;)
Botskiz Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010
Thanks a lot. I actually like the simplicity in the eagle's design in the original CNC Logo and the Tiberium Wars version much better than the more sectioned look of the Tiberian Sun version.
000-N-000 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2010
I can't wait to see more of this fantastic cnc stuff!!!

looking forward for more, do you have anything planned so far?
Botskiz Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010
Nope, nothing planned at the moment, especially not with CNC.

Schönes Logo, gefällt mir. Damals hatte ich auch eine Zeit lang meinen Spaß an Logos entwerfen... speziell für CnC *g*
Sentinall77 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2009

Botskiz Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2008
I had some references and a shape tool at hand, so it wasn't that hard to make. Thank you for the favourites (also the one on Global Brotherhood), by the way.
Dawn-Shade Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2008  Student Digital Artist
Like it very much!
How did you draw like that?
Marsuwai Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2008
Wirklich gute Idee!
Hatred-Reverie Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2008
Wow! Original enough!!

Congrats, this is really something new and unexpected!! xD

Really awesome, claps for you!
Botskiz Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2008
Thank you, thank you.

I think I would die if GDI and Nod joined up.
but other then than its awesome
Botskiz Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2008
Me too, actually. At least I would be sad, since it just wouldn't be the good old Brotherhood of Nod anymore.
HarusameKitteh Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No it wouldnt... >:
Sapphire2008 Featured By Owner May 29, 2008
Kane would never allow his Brotherhood to form an alliance with GDI. The only time that happened was in Tiberium Sun: Firestorm when CABAL went berserk; General Slavik didn't like teaming up with General Cortez.
HarusameKitteh Featured By Owner May 29, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know this. o_o
alpha383 Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2007
Thats actually a good idea
A bit distressed if you catch my drift
Botskiz Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2007
I'm not quite sure, what you meant by "distressed".
hinamori27 Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2007
It's perfect you gotta teach me your secret
Botskiz Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2007
Thanks a lot. There is no secret, though. Except maybe extreme boredom :)
levitan71 Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
cool :D
they should have had that logo ingame when you have to cooperate with gdi/ nod
Botskiz Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2007
Haha, thanks :P I have to admit that I still didn't beat CNC3, though. Shame on me *sigh*
Dreammachine Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2007
Doom tanker is right, that's truely awesome. O-o;
Botskiz Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2007
Thanks a lot, Dreammachine :)

Very cool, man!
Looks almost official, Very detailed!

Botskiz Featured By Owner May 30, 2007
Thanks, I'm glad you like it :)
millicat Featured By Owner May 21, 2007
It would have been nice if the previous person were to comment in english so others can read.

The logo is very slick. I think it's your best piece of work so far. Very appealing indeed and like the first comment, if it were to look a little worn it would improve .. but as it stands, well done !! :)
Botskiz Featured By Owner May 21, 2007
Thanks a lot, Anna. I'm surprised you even think that it's my best work yet, but hey, I won't complain! (Though nothing can compete with my Link drawing ;))

And you're right, I have to tell Simon to stop being lazy. He basically said the following:

"As usual I have to take a bow before your photoshop skills :(

BTW due to personal reasons I had put my own account on hold for a while, to come back soon like pheonix from the ashes.

I'm looking forward to see the next logo! Looks really good. Apart from the ingenious idea behind it!"

To Simon: You're the one who went to America for a year, so you should be translating this *grummel*

Wie üblich muss ich mich deinen Photoshop- fähigkeiten beugen :-(

BTW Ich habe meinen Account aus privaten gründen erstmal eingestampft um bald wie Phönix aus der Asche erneut präsent zu sein.

Ich freu mich schon auf das nächste Logo! Sieht echt gut aus. Abgesehen von der genialen Idee die dahinter steht!
Botskiz Featured By Owner May 18, 2007
Thanks. As far as the worn look is concerned, I wanted it to look as much as the official GDI logo as possible, so I had my limitations.
TheOriginalTuatara Featured By Owner May 18, 2007
I like it, but I think it'd be a bit better if you'd made it look a little more worn. You know? 9/10
