Here, I was taking a break from working on something and threw this together in about 15mins maybe 20 after altering some colours...
I don't know if you will want to use it for not, and all I had to go off of was a sword, a shield and the game's name from your freelancer post, but you're free to use this if you want XD, if not I will still likely include this in my portfolio after a little cleanup, if you don't mind?
as for an animated intro, you could likely get someone to animate the sword and shield slightly and give the text a highlight animation of sorts... You'll still need someone to come up with the background graphics and such though =]

Actual size: with the rest of the screen based on the zelda 2 intro resolution: (exclude the lighter border)

Zoomed in a little to see it a bit better:

If you want to use it and the original file just send me a message and I will send you the original file, it's created in Paint.net with two layers, once for the text and one for the shield and sword. It may need a little work but its my offering to you for free XD lol
I've made the 'D' look more like a 'D' :P
