@yrizoud: lighting and colors are painted from imagination. Typo done in PS  -  lowres, B/W, 2d mode. Then I played a bit with perspective, deformations, basic light.

I started pixeling in Grafx2 having 4 colors lowres, basic typo design done - from straightening lines, perps. fixes, shape refining etc.  
All colors, lightening, 'texture', aa was just pixeled with 1-pixel brush. AA was overdone for purpose and also (not antialiased) triangles - because of the production this logo was meant for. 
@ El-Metallico, Flingan: thank you!

You managed a good lighting that makes it immediately readable. Out of curiosity, did you try draw vanishing points and two-point perspective lines in the image itself to guide you ? From my experience, in low-resolution the 1-pixel lines is already quite "fat", and will make a big mess where they are close together. This is the kind of issue that makes me think I'd like a painting program that allows mixed-resolution layers (Real low resolution for the pixel-drawing area, high resolution / vector layer for construction lines, silhouettes, tracing images etc.)

Great style.

Loving the perspective here and the AA as well.
