  1. Over a year later and I'm still commenting. Good thread. I agree with TroyConcepts that the perspective is pretty off. The cheek, neck, and eyes appear to be profile view. The teeth and lower jaw appear 3/4 view. And the nose/snout almost appears frontal. I don't think we even need to see the far part of the snout, or at least trim it to thin vertical sliver if that makes sense. Stylistically it looks good as your stuff always is, but it's just the anatomy (mainly the brown part of the nose) that is off.
  2. The striping and paneling on these are really creative. You have some nice outside-the-box ideas while still maintaining a traditional feel. The only issue I noticed is that the numbers on the back and player names are too high up.
  3. I really like the proud pose of the bulldog as well as the heavy shading on the belly, but to me the whole thing is pretty rough around the edges as GFB said. The varying widths of blue around the tiny claws look sloppy, especially at a small scale. The white highlights look inconsistent to me because at times the white makes contact with the blue while in other places it leaves a useless thin sliver of gray between the blue and white, making the whole logo inconsistent. I hate being a critic sometimes because this logo is so close and still a big improvement over what they had, but I don't get why the designer(s) didn't just spend another 20 minutes cleaning up the roughness before sending this off.
  4. On this one, at least the ball is different. The placement of everything is the similar to the School of Hoops logo and the shield is very very similar, but not quite on the same level of ripoff as the ACC Tournament which used the exact same ball and highlighting. Anyway, a few months back the ACC did agree to take the infringed logo off their website and other places online. It's a small consolation considering they got use out of it for the tournament, but at least it's resolved.
  5. Nice update. I'd say go with the version on the left side of your second post. It's a nice combination of the ruggedness of the Raiders name and just the right amount of glitz and glamour of Vegas. The dots/lights could possibly work if you used less of them and spaced them out more.
  6. As usual, I like everything you've done, except... 1- the lower right blocky serif on the A seems out of place since all the other serifs have this nice swooping motion. By taking it out, it would also allow you to slide the G in a little more snug if necessary. 2- in the version with the letters and bird together, the bird covers too much of the L. What if you moved the bird down or the green outline all the way to the back layer?
  7. I agree that the Mariners have one of the worst overall looks in baseball, especially the S/compass logo. Too much small detail crammed in that little compass, and their word marks have too many cluttered outlines. So I like the return of the trident/M here simply because anything is better than what they've been using for the last 20+ years, but these word marks need some cleaning up. Some of the small edges on the outlines could be smoother, and the tiny gaps between the white in lower 'S' in Seattle and the blue in the far right 'e' should be deleted.
  8. I'd say go with "very thick". It'll make the logo stand out better from afar. One last nitpick or tweak you could make is to the orange area on top of the nose.The orange shadow you have now is too much of a wrinkle in my opinion, making it look like a valley rather than a wrinkle. If you made it a highlight (white) rather than a lowlight, it would be more accurate to the high nose that cats have. Overall, great progress since page 1.
  9. Creative. It would make a nice baseball cap monogram. Is there any way to thicken up the inner part of the letters so that there isn't so much empty white space? Or possibly making the inner part of the letters an outline rather than solid white space?
  10. Yes, GFB did the Copenhagen one. I think it dates back to 2009 (according to his deviantart page).
  11. I first saw this on dribbble by Denis Davydov, and sure enough, this appears to be their replacement to the short-lived plagiarized one. For a league that isn't known for having good team logos, the KHL has had some pretty good logos by a few teams as of late. http://en.khl.ru/clubs/kunlun/
  12. Yeah, the composition here is more involved than most others I've done, but I do agree with you that although it has this unorthodox, torqued pose, it achieves a unified balance for the most part. I wanted to try something new to me, as opposed to another safer/easier composition (like the Viking I did earlier here). About the font: The word mark is custom made but some of the letters were inspired by a couple of existing fonts.
  13. Here's another logo concept I've been working on. A theme is beginning to develop in this thread - I take a common mascot (Bulldogs, Vikings, and now Knights) and try to achieve a look that is much more inspired than the name itself. I'm not sure how many more of these I'll do, but for now, here are the Knights. The full identity is up on behance as well: https://www.behance.net/gallery/40713463/Knights-Logo-Concept
  14. There are a few lines around the lower wing and neck that could be smoothened out more. It's subtle, but at the same time you're going to want this to be as clean as possible if you intend to use it to promote your work. The TK97 in the light bulb is not that legible. I thought it said T9C or something along those lines. I would also suggest having the albatross take up more space if possible, especially in the roundel where it occupies less than 10% of the total area.
  15. Great depth in this logo. I personally like the simpler color scheme without yellow since the color distribution is consistent throughout. The last version with yellow and icy blue together seems like palette overkill to me. The only thing that seems off is that the vertical leg on the right side of the L is rather high, but maybe you like it that way. Like always, very crisp and clean!
