Lions Logo concept *Update v.4

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I was doodling around in class earlier in the week and it eventually evolved into this. I was wondering what you guys thought, and where I could improve it before I end up putting it into inkscape.

This has a lot of potential — I like it. One thing that really sticks out to me is the color of the far ear and eye. To give the correct perspective, those should probably just be plain black. Other than that, can't wait to see what this looks like once it's vectorized. Nice start.

Actually you're right. I should dump the 'cheek' and just lower the brow line slightly. I think that will help a ton. Thanks!

If you drew an invisible line from the apex of the left ear straight across, that is where the apex of the right ear should be. Eliminate the right eye, or blacken it out, and you have a winner here! That right eye for some odd reason, makes it look like some robo- terminator type cat.

I'm in the midst of working on this right now. I was wondering if anybody else had some last minute input, particularly about the alternate logo. It was a last minute inclusion, but so far you guys seem to like it.

The lion looks like its' winking at the viewer...which could be intimidating...but I think if you fixed the eye and the ear, it would be really great looking. The script logo is really good...can't wait to see it when its' vectorized.

^ Super helpful.

I like this update. I think it's a good time to pop this into Inkscape and refine it. I think there's some work to be to be done with the lower teeth (angles make it look like they're laying down in the mouth a little bit) — but it's hard to say if that's caused by the sketch variance or not. Either way, though, I think you may want to work on those bottom teeth. The way they look now, they're on the same plane as a tongue would be, not perpendicular to that. Hope that makes sense. Can't wait to see this progress.

Hows this?

I tried to fix some of the perspective issues, but the bottom teeth are still giving me a bit of trouble. I think by shifting the orange section of the jaw, it helps change the 'wink' in to more of a snarl.

I think you need an eye as it looks like the Lion is missing one.

Also the B secondary logo could use a thicker line down the middle to make it great like in your drawing.

The same thickness as the upper & bottom one.

It looks good, but it looks more like a bobcat than a lion. Unless you were going for a mountian lion. Then it would look accurate.

Yeah, it's based off of a mountain lion. B.C isn't really known for it's vast Savannahs. :)

I really like it...maybe a narrow eye in white would look nice. I would also be interested to see a helmet and uniforms...nice update though.

Neither is Detriot, but they ran with it.

There probably won't be any updates over the weekend. I've got an assload of homework, but I have started on a full body version. I think it's pretty great so far.

Stay tuned guys.

Managed to squeak some work on this in over the weekend. I made a few little changes, specifically the teeth, and added the eye, as well as a version without it as a comparison.

Personally I'm not sold on the addition of the eye.
