UAA has used the same classic, tribal art influenced, logo since 1973 (REF). As stated, the logo is classic; but I was wondering - What if UAA would update their look? What would a Seawolf look like if it were modernized? What is the basis for the Seawolves name?

In Haida and Tlingit culture; a seawolf is an enormous creature that preys upon pilot and killer whales. It as four legs with fins, a head similar to a wolf, and a tail like a fish or a whale or sometimes a prehensile tail. (This is not a wolf with an eye patch ;)) Before becoming the Seawolves, UAA's nickname was the Sourdoughs in reference to old sailors..... good upgrade. After researching historic and contemporary Haida and Tlingit depictions of seawolves I got to drawing out what a new Seawolves logo might look like, so here is my concept logo for the University of Alaska Anchorage Seawolves:

Personally, I think that the sketch you put in your last post is better than the finished product. The first one is a little bit too busy but your sketch holds the necessary upgrades to the original without going into confusing detail.

It’s the perspective. Pacific Native American art is always at that 90 degree angle, if you catch my drift, and yours is kinda at a 45 degrree angle. If it were like the sketch where it’s a flat kind of view, it would be perfect.

Yeah, I was trying to take it into another view point, to make it feel more like a real creature.

That would be gorgeous if it were all colored in and polished up.
