Was your sig the inspiration?

Honestly, not feeling this look for the lion. And as someone else said, he needs an eye.

does this look better? i think that by adding an eye, it doesnt look like hes yawning, and more like he's roaring.

i think if i were to make a concept team with this logo, they would be called the "Roar".

what should i do?

First of all, try to avoid using strokes. Outline those strokes if necessary, and then modify points.

Secondly, use colour where the light will hit the lion. This is not about outlining a lion and colouring him in, its about giving him texture and depth.

Third, if your detail lines need to be that thin, you don't need that much detail.

Fourth, don't tie yourself to a photo. Photographs often have subtleties that don't look good in a logo, and you'll be tempted to make the logo match the photo. For instance, look at the fangs, specifically the one at the top in the foregroujnd. What's wrong with it?

Using this kind of critical eye will help you improve your logos by yourself without relying purely on the suggestions of others.

It looks better than the first one but I think the mouth is open too much...

thanks, this is my first real creation on illustrator. i think the mouth might be open too much as well.

Phil, what do you mean by Outlining strokes and how do i modify points?

It's the bottom jaw that makes it look like the lion is yawning, when you yawn the bottom jaw will go back further like the way you are depicting it.

Have the jaw come out further, much like your Ray Lewis sig, he's giving out a roar...its right under your nose, the way you want it to look, use Ray Lewis' face as a template, work off it.

That's my 2 cents, hope it helps you some.

yeah, i knew it was yawing in the first place, i just thought it looked cool, and maybe i could pull it off as a roar.

Yeah....no. It's closer now, but still not right. The mouth is way too big for the size of the head, and the mouth is too triangulated.

Try this
