I like this. Keeps the shield and makes good use of the colors. I don’t know that you can use the bison interpretation of Thunder as the casual fan wouldn’t understand given that the current branding is more literal. It’s still a great logo regardless.

I love the concept, but the detailing doesn't quite read as a buffalo to me. Looks a bit too much like a gorilla or perhaps a viking/demon combo to me. Something about the structure of the face itself makes it seem oddly apelike. Still miles better than the current branding and an excellent start, but the details could use some tweaking to help it seem more like a buffalo.

Definitely agree with everyone that this is a huge upgrade from what they currently have. They have great potential but have the blandest branding in the league. I also agree with @PERRIN in that something seems off on the rendering of the buffalo. It does have a gorilla look or almost like a yeti look to it. One other minor gripe is how little the bottom hairs come out of the shield. I like the idea of the buffalo breaking the barrier of the shield but that seems like it isn't enough.

 

Overall a really good start, just needs some minor tweaking.

Yea I agree with this. Looking great but maybe some minor tweaks.
I think you may need a little more detail / definition around the nostrils... and also as previously mentioned, I think the buffalo needs to clearly break the bottom of the shield or it can look like a mistake. Even if you contained it within the shield, it would still look good.

Suggestion: make the horns more like bison horns, and adjust the nose and mouth and eyes (the current eyes and brows are very gorilla-like instead of bison-like)...

 

 

American Bison

 

The trick is to avoid making it look too much like Howard University's logo:

I agree with the above comments. Make the horns bigger and give them some curl. Rework the nose and mouth. Perhaps add some scruff along the right and left of the head to help define the shape of the head, which is distinct for a buffalo.

 

But the shape of the logo, with the head on top of the shield, and the current color balance you have going get a thumbs up from me.
