  1. These are cool. You could sell shirts with these designs easily.
  2. Massive upgrade for Jupiter! They need it too, with the rest of their league overall being pretty sharp and modern. I agree with @JMtexan09, The second one for Austin is nice. Something about the star-eye seems off though... Maybe it's how straight it is compared to the rest of the set?
  3. Not that Prairie Wolves is a bad name, it just doesn't work for Tucson. Desert Wolves could work, but honestly, wolves are not around here. Even Mexican Gray Wolves. Here's their range in AZ: http://mexicanwolfeis.org/about/range/ That's about 200 miles from Tucson. I think the best way to adapt this identity to make it relevant would be to change it to Desert Dogs, since we do have plenty of coyotes in city limits, along with 2 types of foxes on the outskirts of town.
  4. Prairie Wolves would not work at all in Tucson, fyi. It's not a prairie here and we don't have wolves.
  5. I think the white could actually be an asset if you also use it in the eyes. Right now the eyes are really hard to distinguish. You could add a little white to literally be the whites of the eyes, and maybe a shine in the pupil, and that would make them stand out. Lots of improvement though. I agree with @Rambulance that it'd be smart to mimic the shape of the eyes and whiskers in the ears. I did my own 'wildcat' logo a few years back, and this is how I went with it, just as a reference:
  6. This is so cute! I think the biggest thing for me is that the colors and shapes of the pup's head make it kind of blur together with the background... I know you can't do anything for the tones, but maybe you can add some sand to the eye area? I think the eye and some of the details around the neck are too small, so they get lost. It's also kind of like that with the very small fur tufts on the back. I'd either enlarge the details or cut some of them. So adorble, though! I like that the little coyote definitely feels like a pup, and not just a small coyote.
  7. The thing about this one that really isn't working for me is the whiskers. They bring the whole logo sagging down. I think you should thin them out and make them straighter. Look at how the whiskers are positioned on your reference image. Actually, I wanted to write a bit about the eyes too, but I found it easier to redline. I redlined it using the reference image you provided! Let me know if this is not clear.
  8. The details inside the elephant's head are much too small. same with the distinction between the tail and hind leg. The type is also really static and doesn't create any real interest. I do like your choice of mascot though... maybe you should change the primary logo to just focus on the head.
  9. *She And I agree! I like moving the school name to the top, because it makes it seem a little bit more like the bat is hanging on to something.
  10. I reaaaally like both of these. I think what really sends them home is that they look youthful. Especially the tiger. I really like it when a HS logo has a bit more of a playful, adolescent vibe. I'm digging the tiger's sneer so hard.
  11. I think it's really funny that you could read the RIVERBATS wordmark as RAVERBATS, with how that part of the bat is sort of triangle shaped, haha! I love the roundel logo, I think it excels. I think it could be cool to work in some river imagery, but it isn't really necessary.
  12. Honestly, your first mustang is not bad. Like I said, your overall shape is good, but you need some refining in terms of making it look like a logo. I think you can pull off a scorpion if the mustang is a good indicator of your ability. on these boards, effort is always better than clip art.
  13. Nice. Looks youthful too, perfect for a high school. You could even play around with some of the light yellow as highlights in the feathers to really punch up the "golden" aspect.
  14. I could get behind this hardcore. The scorpion update feels like a lateral move. I think it's mainly the very thin outline you have on it. It's also a little spindly overall, which seems jarring to me compared to the thick band of stripes on the jersey. The red part of the scorpion also gets lost on the black jersey. I'm also not sure how I feel about the tail bits alternating in color. I think if you thicken the segments of the scorpion it'll help. It looks pretty cool, but right now it's not really reading like a sports logo for me yet. Especially a hockey logo.

    Terriers Logo

    The ear is a bit too far up the head, which makes it look like a horn. It needs to be move back behind the head. The pupil isn't really working for me... combined with the ear, it's making this pup look a little alien-like. I like the overall vibe though. That mustache is great. Cool mascot choice, too.
  16. You should cut the Marlin tail out of the logo. It's distracting and it doesn't work anatomically with how the animal's body is turned.
  17. Hey Ren, I'm procrastinating, so I tried to pull a few other interesting mascots, if you're ever looking for some inspiration: This logo is pretty good, but I thought you may have fun with a gecko mascot. I don't remember if you've done Thunderbirds, but this one has some wild colors that could be fun. I don't really understand why the Lamar 'Lopes have an R shaped logo... and I can't remember if you've done a pronghorn. But I love pronghorn logos, and it'd probably be fun!
  18. You could definitely get away with keeping the horse and go with Stallions or Broncos. Tucson has a really deep rodeo history, so that is totally still a good connection. Mustang is the name for wild horses, though, and we don't really have those haha. But I'd love to see other unique mascots if you have the time!
  19. This one is super interesting. It feels so unique compared to other bison logos! I think it may be a little too thin for a bison, though. Especially near the neck/chest area. Maybe you could spread out the front two legs and give it a more "ready to charge" stance? I like the overall render though. The face especially has a lot of personality.
  20. I'm not necessarily feeling the Mustang as a mascot, but it's not bad. Mustangs aren't really a thing here... horses definitely, mustangs not as much. There are just a few cool Southern Arizona critters that I'd love to see as mascots even more (Javelinas? Scorpions? Maybe even a Gila Monster or Coati?). The logo could use some tweaking, though. Right now you have far too many fine lines, and that's making it look less like a logo and more like clipart. Work in larger blocks of shadows and highlights, and it'll look more like a logo. Also, the posing and composition of the horse, while pretty intimidating, is also kind of making him look... well, fat. Like an angry Cartman yelling for more Hot Pockets. I think if you work on bringing in larger shadows and blockier highlights of color, it will make the horse look more imposing and less overfed. Your basic shape is cool, though.
