  1. Does anyone have a better version of this logo?
  2. Here is a logo concept for the Montana Grizzlies. A bear is another mascot that every designer should try to draw up. I took inspiration from their current bear's face and smoothed it out some. Rendered it in their current Maroon/Silver and the vintage Gold/Copper.
  3. I'm guessing I'll catch some flack for this but, I'm tweaking the "un-tweak...able." I'm a fan of the Texas's current look, however a few things have bothered me. It looks a bit flat and the shape of the horns looks off (especially compared to Bevo). So I went in and fleshed out the animal.In doing this I added a color... cream to the look. I feel like I've always associated cream color with UT but I can't place it... Anyway, I did a flat version too for all those fans that would have to breathe into a paper bag if they dropped that all together: Here are some reference images:

    Every self-respecting sports logo artist should have a wildcat in their stock folder (also, bulldog, eagle, tiger, etc). Its a very common mascot and therefore difficult to create in a unique way. This concept is basically a Northwestern Wildcat. but the design would meld easily into any wildcat brand. The only feature that I'm unsure of is which "light area" color works best (white, light purple, lighter purple). White Light Purple Lighter Purple White with Light Purple Border I kinda feel like the white is too harsh and the light purple blends too much, so I'm leaning towards the lighter purple.
  5. This is hard to describe, but kept me up at night..... What are your top 5 college mascots that are surprisingly not used by many other colleges or top tier pro teams. Exclude mascots that are unique for geographic reasons only. (example; Tennessee Volunteers; unique because Tenessee is the Volunteer State) and high schools beacurse they copy about everyone. Maybe my list will clear it up too. Texas Longhorns - Longhorn cattle are tied to Texas, but are a widspread breed. Florida Gators - Florida has a high population of alligators but they live all around the gulf. Wisconsin Badgers - It's a fierce animal that would work great as a pro mascot. Mchigan Wolverines - See above^ Arkansas Razorbacks - See #3 I understand that tradition plays a big role in this, but think of how many mascots overlap in the NCAA or the top pro leagues.
  6. Once again; this would not end up being used by the school. They have tooooo much invested in Herbie looking guys. But I tried to think of some mascots that fit the name, region, and aren't human. Because let's face it, it won't be long until all human mascots will offend someone. My 2 options here are: Raccoon- They are always raiding the corn fields, cribs, and silos. They are from the animal family Musteloidea so they fit in the BIG10. They have peopleish hands so to get to the corn they actually husk it. They are un-used in D1. Drawback- many farmers hate them. Scarecrow- They are associated with fields/corn fields. Human-ish so it's not as far of a move from Herbie. They are un-used in D1. They are often stuffed with corn husks. Drawback- seem to be either too creepy or too friendly. Here are the looks: Raccoon: Not sure about the eyes A B Scarecrow: Let me know what you think. If you think they should just have a Herbie, then explain why in a way that is not "because that's what they've always had".
  7. Indiana has had a bulldog, bison, and an ox as a mascot identity. Rather than fall in with one of the most populous mascots I chose to go with the ox (I've done a lot of bison work too) .
  8. Let me start by saying that this is NOT intended to replace the grinning Goldy. Also, I KNOW that the school would not replace the current Goldy with this one. After I did the Michigan Wolverine and Wisconsin Badger I thought I'd try to give a similar feel to the Minnesota Gophers. I used the 13 striped ground squirrel for reference; no it's not a gopher but judging by Goldy's tail it's what he is based off of and many people call the ground squirrel a gopher. I think it turned out to have a good balance of cute and fight. Comment with your thoughts.
  9. This concept was started a few years ago here: http://boards.sportslogos.net/topic/98132-vintage-style-lipscombcoloradohoward/ . And I just went back and cleaned it up. Let me know what you think of the updates. Here is the image: And a GIF for comparison:

    I drew up this pheasant logo idea I had bouncing around in my head and I've gotten stuck. Should I include the white ringneck or leave it off? Or even open it up? A B C D
  11. I would like to stress that this is my first mascot logo I've ever made, so please go easy on me. I made it with a cougar/mountain lion in mind. I thought it would be a good logo for a minor hockey team. However I couldn't decide on the colours. I am going for something unique so these colour schemes aren't very traditional. Feel free to suggest your own colour schemes though.
  12. This started in the request section as a request by mattb6. I took the logo I put together for that request and tweaked a few things, this is what came of it. I'm thinking of using this as a shirt design or for my youtube channel. Tell me what you think.
  13. Hey all, I started a thread in the Sport Logos forum about vintage college mascots (http://boards.sports...e-mascot-logos/) and it inspired me to take a look at a few colleges that didn't have that style of logo. I started with my alma mater South Dakota State University; their previous logo was taken straight from Warner Bros. and in 2006 had to abandon it. This is the concept sketch that I came up with: The body position was borrowed from NCSU, but the rest was either researched from SDSU or developed myself. Next I turned my attention to SDSU's rival, USD. The coyotes had a Warner Bros. inspired mascot logo too. This is USD's concept sketch; Again the body position was borrwed, this time from Navy, and the rest I came up with.
