B.C. Lions Overhaul *Updated 9/12

Recommended Posts

I kind of got out of concepts lately, but for some reason, I felt the urge to draw tonight. I was looking through th e logo history for the B.C. Lions when I saw this logo.

I think it is a very good logo for its time, and even though it's 50 years old, it's better then many logos that are released today. I wanted to clean it up and bring it into the 21st century, so I came out with this.

I wanted to do a simple update, similar to the Detroit Lions. Im pretty happy with how the body turned out but I know there can still be some improvements. Something about the head seems wrong though. It almost seems more surprised then angry. I'd love to get some constructive feedback on this, so C&C is always welcome.

Wow I love it. The head could use some work (not sure what) but way better than what I can do. Still looks good. Love he body. It's obviously not a logo for a helmet but a good primary still. I like it a lot. Nice job!

Needs whiskers as it looks a bit too much like a dog, IMO. Also more feline-looking eyes would be a subtle but major improvement. Its eyes are too circular to resemble that of a typical feline's.

Thanks for the feedback so far, the whiskers and eyes really improved it in my opionion. Im gonna see if I get a few more ideas before I start to add colour.

I'd also try to improve on the front right paw, I know it's in a certain perspective, but I would try and put it on the same plane as the left paw...

Heres the update. I ended up shortening the left paw instead, as i found it looked better. I also tried adding a white patch of fur on the stomach to try to break up all the colour... or at least what WOULD be colour when it is finished. I cant seem to get it right though, any suggestions

Made a few small updates, made the stroke around the body thicker, changed the left paw, and the fur on the belly.

Its like Im wearing nothing at all! Nothing at all!

Seriously:

The mouth is on a straigh forward plane while the rest of the head is tilted. Update that and it will look nice!
