    Thanks Kentuckyx, I like that one too, probably my second favorite. Once I had it in my mind that I wanted the dragons head to be the negative black some in the D though I went in a different direction.

    I absolutely love the colors and the bottom sections of the jerseys rock...no pun intended, but I'm not a fan of the collar and shoulders. A bit too blocky for my liking. White jersey is my favorite of the three, colors just look the best on it. OK, so I was the first to respond so I'd like to see the Flyers next and you could use the last name Hawkes, and the number 77:)
  3. I personally like the one in the upper left the best. I think the dark sky works well against the grey wolf, also, the wolf is howling...at the moon, so makes more sense that it would be night time. Also, I find the silver/grey makes it look more like a wolf, I find the darker colored wolf versions remind me more of a husky. Overall, awesome logo!!

    Awesome advice guys!!! Seriously, this logo would still look like the piece of crap it was when I first started without everyone's tips. Here is a copy of the D with more thicker red, I kinda like it. As for the laces, I totally get what you mean, just not sure I have the skill to pull it off. My first laces, 4 versions ago were just a copy paste job, these ones are actually individually created vectors for each lace, it's just hard to tell. I'll try a few things with them, but not sure what I'm able to do. My knowledge of Inkscape is growing, but still very limited. I know the laces may look like they don't belong there somewhat, but that is also a bit of the point...I want it to look like both a Dragon and a football at first glance, not just a dragon that if you look hard you can tell it also resembles a football. I'll still around though and see what I can do. Kinda fun to look back at all of the versions so far and see how it has evolved. Ironically....this version is what I was basically picturing all along, something that was very similar to the Falcons logo, but was a dragon, interesting how it developed... up until a day or so ago, it was not going to look like this at all, then just for fun I flipped the one that I was working on onto it's side and boom it hit me that had what I was looking for. I liked the other versions, but just wasn't happy with them. Now I really love it, with a few more tweaks and some more great advice from everyone, it might even be nearly complete.

    You know what Zeus, you are absolutely right. I actually never even saw it before, but after you said it, I TOTALLY see it, and the one thing I am trying to avoid is it looking like a bat. Sooooo.....redesign. But this time I'm coming back full circle. it's not the same as the very first one, but it's the most reminiscent one to date that I've done, and I absolutely love it. Yes, it can always be improved, but of every one that I've tried so far, this one by far I like the best. It's got aspects in it of nearly every design version I've tried so far. I hope you like it....C&C please!

    Wildwing, help me fully understand what you mean, do you think I shouldn't use the same head for the D logo as I have for the primary logo, the football one? Or just use the same head, but make it look like one of the two D's you had mentioned. I just changed up the head in the D to, first see if a different design looked better, second to try to match the color scheme of the new primary logo and last because it was suggested to use the same head for each. I think the head on the new primary is probably the best Dragon one I have made, next to the one in the sideways facing "flying to the right" one I tried out a few days ago. I angry ones in the D's are good, but not quite right.

    Well, here's an attempt at that. Thoughts?

    Tried a little bit of tweak. Switched the dragon's head to face up, as if it is flying and the viewer is looking at the logo, "Dragon" from the top down. Plus, I thought I would try it with the white laces again. Here are a few color variations.

    Thanks for the comments guys. Too funny how we all LOVE logos, but all love something different about them. This project has been a lot of fun, and really helped me stretch my creative juices by using a program I'm not familiar with. Inkscape is fun, but tough to figure some things out just doing trial and error. Every time I do a new version of the logo, I think, there, that's it, that's the one. Then I post it and even before anyone comments, I start thinking of ways to improve it. . I'm going to start to play around with the shading a little, I think I would like to define the ridges in the wings a different way, would like to define the body too. But I have to get better at it before I do too much. Thinking of moving the head to be facing straight ahead too, not sure. Positive that this design is the one I'll stick with and improve though. I really like it, just needs a bit more work. Funny thing about the laces, I like the idea of making them look like scales, and like the way they look, but I still kinda feel like the big white laces are the way to go too....

    This version seemed to be the most popular, so I cleaned it up and changed the "laces" in the front to look like belly scales. C&C would be great, it's the only reason this logo looks soooooo different from the very first one I posted a few weeks ago.

    I was feeling creative tonight. This one is ok, thoughts?

    OK, so I've played around with this design a little to get a feel for what it would look like a few different ways. Take a look and see what one you like better, or even let me know if this type of design is the direction I should go in. .
  14. I also think the wings could send to be slid up the back a little. Between the shoulder blades would look better. I like the yellow tip in the tail, it really make it "pop". Great job!

    I worked on this one this morning. Think I like it the best so far.
