Final output, distressed/age effect created in Photoshop.
The vector final. Illustrator's Auto Trace function used to replicate the official The Judge logo, and 3D effect and warp with mesh used to place it. The GTO badge is just Arial vertically compressed (true of the actual badge.)
Work in progress. I tend not to like to spend a lot of time tracing artwork I've already created, so I sketch a rough as a guideline and draw the details directly in Illustrator.
