  1. Memphis Jackals NBA 2K logo

    I preferred the first eye style. I think you'd see major improvements by making lines follow the same angles and working on your lineweights. Right now you've got too many different weights. The angles of the ears/nemes crown are too close in your new iteration. I'd go back to your first style ears and bring the nemes onto the forehead.
  2. Washington State Cougars Logo

    Just some real rough photoshops of google images.
  3. Washington State Cougars Logo

    I love me a logo with something hidden in it. That said, I hate the WSU logo. It's not hidden, it's just the worst. Here's my attempt. I started with the top two options, because I wanted to keep the Cougar head tilted back, similar to the WSU logo. I'm struggling with how to finish off the bottom portion of the logo with this setup. Turns out rotating it fixes that issue, but loses that tilted back roar the original logo has. Thoughts?
  4. Memphis Jackals NBA 2K logo

    Love the concept. I'd try to work the net in a bit better. As it is now, it looks pasted on top of the logo.
  5. The Motion W that never was.

    No.
  6. The Motion W that never was.

    Stumbled upon this article today and was shocked to see a Wisconin Badgers helmet I'd never seen before. From the article: Contrary to local urban legend, former UW football coach Barry Alvarez did not design the ubiquitous "motion W" logo that now adorns team helmets and Badger fan apparel. That honor goes to Ric Suchanek, a graphic designer at Rayovac, who in 1990 was yanked from a meeting by the company president. His boss hated the Badgers' blocky W helmets and wanted to see Suchanek come up with some alternative designs. After the company obtained blank helmets from the UW athletic department with the promise that the project wouldn't cost a thing, Suchanek went to work, producing eight designs, a different one for each side of four helmets. An impromptu meeting with new coach Alvarez, athletic director Pat Richter and other bigwigs brought encouraging responses and a request for more prototypes. Suchanek cranked out a dozen more designs, including one featuring Ws that wrapped around to meet at the back of the helmet. While that design was favored by many, Alvarez nixed it as being more suitable to the Pac 10 conference. When Suchanek conceived the forward-minded motion W, Alvarez liked it right away. The design was rushed into production to make it in time for the first game of the 1991 season.

    Have you tried using the BiG logo on your new Barrelman?

    Looking good. Instead of/in addition to using the middle orange to shade half of the face you might try increasing weights of the dark orange in the shadowed area. Right now we see that one half is in shadow, but that's only on the face. Use your dark orange to shade that area as well.

    Low-res.

    With the style you're looking for I find it easiest to draw your logo, all the details and then just start removing them. Combine shadowed areas (the undersides of the mountie and fisherman's hats blend with the shadows of their faces). Let the viewer fill in the gaps. We all know what eyes look like, you can use simple shapes to convey expressions in a logo much easier than details can. Sometimes I create the logo without any shading and choose my light source once that's done. I start thickening lines that will be in shadow, eventually these thick lines become the shadow. I used this process in my Bulls concept. I basically started with their current single weight logo and made lines thicker and thicker until I was happy. I also used small bits of light within the shaded areas to highlight points of expression (eyebrow and cheek).
  12. College Football Uniforms - 2017 Season

    I think it transcends slogan when it's 130+ years old and takes on symbol status.
