Does the circle need to be skewed like that? Almost looks like the guy's wearing a space helmet.

Cannot unsee

I really like the use of negative space for the headband & the hair/beard in general is really well-rendered... there are a few elements that might not "shrink down" well, like the shadows near the eye and nose... the design might feel a bit more modern with some sharpened details, a less cartoon-ish eye, but if you are going for more of the vintage college icon style, I think you're on the right path!

Thanks for the feedback everyone... Yeah the halo does look off, so to avoid the space helmet look I wanted to update it as a straight-on logo. I think this looks much better and will also allow for the school name inside the brown of the halo. Still, any suggestions are more than welcome!

New version is better. I think maybe the gray shading on the face should go all the way up to the hairline, and possibly close off the top of the head? Definitely the shading though...

 

And are those the team colors, black and white, or is this just a version to flesh out some detail? Because no color or wordmark seems kind of bland.

 

Don't get me wrong, it's an excellent piece, just needs some team based flair now.

Thanks, I do like it better with the shading up to the hairline. And I closed off the top of the head with shading as well, which I think looks better. Yes, the school colors are (dark) brown and white, with some gray as an accent. I have a primary logo and wordmarks as well, but just felt that I needed some input on the secondary friar logo.

I like version right before you went full roundel. If you deleted the line under the chin I think you'd have a winner.That said if you're set on moving to the latest version, I think the Friar would look better more stoic or if you have to make him smile have as a closed mouth smile.  He admittedly scares me a little bit as is.
