I went in and re-did the main and DP logos, they are now fully functional vector images! Once, they were text, and while the overall shape is very similar to the reference text, there are a few minor modifications. Took an additional 2.5-3 hrs. As time goes on, I hope to visualize and then create my own all-vector logotypes, but until I have a good grasp, I might have to stick to font-based training wheels on which to base my vector shapes.
Did it all in one session with a couple breaks...total of about 4.5 hours. The interface of this particular design is closely modelled after the work of machine56 [link]

, as well as style influences from humanIMPRINT (drum n bass record label, featuring Dieselboy) [link]

. All incredible artists, I am trying to learn the style as well-- often what I do is look to the influence pieces for reference and then go wild on my own piece.
Of course, the music behind this piece needs to be mentioned as well-- I started with Koop's "Waltz for Koop" looping in the background, then switched to a DnB mix from DFunk & Hyde's Funked Up Radio, and finally, one of my all-time favorite jungle duos, jazzstep pioneers LTJ Bukem and MC Conrad.
