Engineer Techno Behind The Scenes! Part 1 - The logo

Making the DJ Engineer logotype:
I know a few Photoshop tricks and now it was time to show it off!

I began with a good Engineer pose with Valves Model Viewer tool. This is a combination of the already existing cheering and pointing animation merged together with a happy Engy face. Green background (for easy extraction) and then Print Screen.

Then it was time to find a proper base image.
Went around on Google until i found this DJ Hero Screenshot.

Then took some time to insert the Engineer into this picture. It took some time but it ended up quite well.
I used layers, paint and the Clone tool to remove visible parts of the original DJ hero guy behind my inserted Engineer. Used the brushes to add some shining effects where it was needed, for example where the white shines behind him to the right. And good enough!

Then went to and got the DJ engineer text. Put it together with the TF2 logo.
And there we have it!

(If you look close on the TF2 logo you'll see and engineer face in the middle, that because that's the first skin idea for my vinyls in my Engineer Techno Music Video but i scratched that idea after i've seen it in Gmod and used it here instead)

Here you go, you can have these pictures and use them as you want:
Backgrounds, TF2 Sprays, blog posts etc.

Original Wide
Icon style

Spray Files:
Some have been asking for sprays for TF2, L4D etc.
So i saved you some work and did the files myself...

Or use the one i'm using, one with a MisterMild logo and "Engineer Techno @ Youtube" text in the corners:
