After seeing several concepts on this thread.

I wanted a crack at making the full body bull logo.

So without further ado C & C please!

not a huge fan of it. It might look a little better if you tweak what I'm assuming is the neck under the blue horn. the hooves are kinda awkward too. Fix those and it should look a lot better

I feel like his head is a little too big, maybe make it smaller?

I have fixed the neck it was bothering me when I posted but I wanted to see what others said.

I will post an update when I get a few more suggestions. What about the hooves can I approve?

I like them the way they are now because I wanted them exaggerated.

Does anyone else think the head is to big?

I used the original pic in the thread as reference & it is the same size.

Also I would like to hear from any Texan fans.

Maybe stagger the line down the cheast at the neck so the first line appears more realistic? IDK I like it but it needs to be tweeked a bit. I also think the head is a tad to big.

I like it so far. The only thing I would change besides what other have said is the thing poking out with the tail. Not sure what that is?

Actually, I think it's quite good as is. Guys, you gotta realize it's a relatively abstract logo. Not everything is gonna be perfectly identical to an actual bull. Look at the head itself. See how parts of it come to sharp points that wouldn't in real life? This is carried over onto the body. And you have to look at perspective as well. What's gonna be the closest part to you when looking straight at it? The head. So it's gonna appear slightly bigger. I think he has it pretty well sized right now. Really the only "picky" thing I would fix is where the white "seperation" comes down from the head to the body. If you look, once on the body, it widens just a bit more than where it ends on the head. Maybe fix that to where it matches better. Actually, if you're in Illustrator, take the "handle" for that curve on the red side and take it up just a tad and then over to the left a bit until you see it flow better. That's all that really needs to be done. I guess you could reduce the size of the incut of the tail so it doesn't look so much like a crab claw, but other than that, me likey everything about this. Great job.

Just curious what Houston's fans think because this would be for merchandise anyways because they do not need anything on their uniforms.

Nice, nice nice nice. It's the subtle things that make a solid logo. Good job on this one

Gotta say, I may be alone but I prefer the first one. Head looks a little detached from the body on the updated one and I like how the white separation flows together on the first one.

Is this a better version? Just changed the line in the chest this way if the bull was facing straight at you the line would match up.

It seems to me the head logo is looking right, (its left) to me I think the body you made looks awkward because it's facing forward and the basically the neck is just turned right. But when I see the head I see an animal facing right..

Same reason the full-body broncos logo looks so wierd.. That bound be a silhouette to match the head, and this should be a 3/4 angle, not head on

So I would build out the bull/steer body similar to the (reverse of the) bengals full body tiger logo, coming from left to right. Because the bengals seem to have the disembodied head / add on the body concept correct.

I would at Least like to see what it looks like (I imagine similar to a cross between the bengals and the bills)

OR if you want to use this body, I would like to see how it looks flipped around horrizontally, do at least it's all going in the same direction... Back-left to front-right.. Without the twisted neck (reverse the colors obv.)

I think the perspective is fine. The bull's head appears to be looking down to the left. Like it's looking down at you.

That.... actually works. Very well, in fact.

I'd even go as far as to say this is the ONLY way you could do a full body Texans logo.
