As of now, I'm taking logo requests for anybody who is interested. Just note I have a few guidelines that I'd appreciate very much if you followed.
1) Please do not spam me with requests, and please limit your requests to one at a time. I would also appreciate not being rushed, I will work as fast as I can, I'm still rather new to Photoshop and the like.
2) I would ask that you be VERY specific with what you want. Colors, gradients, etc. As for designs, I lack the skill to hand-draw them (I use brushes to make the designs, hehe...) So if you request something I don't have, I will try to look for it, if I cannot find it, then I apologize, and you'll have to either change your request, or, if you can locate brushes that are what you're looking for and link them to me, that would be fine as well.
3) Please, please, PLEASE, do not expect some unbelievable masterpiece. As I stated before, I'm not very experienced, so making something as good as others here can do is not something that comes easily to me. On the flip side, if I do something wrong, please do not hesitate to tell me. I would hate to mess something up and have someone not tell me because they do not want to irritate me or something.
Onto examples, these are the best ones that I've done so far. (According to the kind people who have helped me along the way. ) Note: Please do not re-use any logos other than the ones you request without permission from myself (if it isn't made for someone else) or the requester (if I made it for said requester). Thanks.
The Shinora Chronicles Final Logo
The Shinora Chronicles-Alternate
Project EXodus Logo V2
The Surcease War
Soul Slayer: Embracing Chaos
The Shinora Chronicles 2: The Perfect Light
Again, if you want to request something, ask of course. But remember to be specific, I can't read minds.

I'm pretty new to Photoshop, but I whipped up a couple of logos. Here's one I made for a game idea I had:
And this is the new (non-lame online text generator logo) and improved logo for The Shinora Chronicles:
The only problems I have with these personally is I feel like the spacing between the words is off. I may redo them later, but since school started back up for me, it's going to have to take a back-seat for now.

But I'm not too good, so please don't beat me up. Please check my art thread.

Much better! =]
I would like to say that a few more edits are needed though. The colours work better in terms of readability, and the first two lines of the "Shinora Chronicles" logo seem to look all right, but the last line, "chronicles", needs a bit more love. The letters are close together in some places and far apart in others, in the graphic art community we would call this "improper kerning". It makes it difficult to read because the eye expects a new word to begin after a space that is longer than the previous spaces between characters. Thus it is read as "c hro n ic l e s" instead of "chronicles". To fix this, you could add spaces between the letters that are closer together (instead of trying to force the larger characters on top of each other). Spacing the characters further apart isn't necessarily a bad thing either, as it will increase readability and you can even add more details/flavour to them upon doing so (for example the letters "hro" could be as fancy as the letters "c", "e", and "s" without making it look awkward). =]
I love what you've done with the Project Exodus logo this time around; far better and much easier to read.
The Surcease War logo looks nice, but it is a little too blurry. Just barely though. I would recommend either using a font that has more space between the letters (and its own curves), or you could decrease the shadow's size and increase its contour. Go with "Half Round" contour on the drop shadow, and increase the opacity to about 85%. (Of course, you don't have to follow those instructions exactly, but it will help move you in the right direction for that shadow being less blurry.) It also looks as if you are using Satin, and I'd recommend making a change to that contour instead (if you don't want to make the above changes suggested).
Looking great, and you seem to have a good idea as to what you want in the logos. =D
