Concept - Memphis Grizzlies

Recommended Posts

Another chance for the ball eating grizzly:

- Most noticeably he now has a lower jaw

- The basketball therefore is smaller now

- I also rounded the edges of the ball what makes it look smoother now

- The ball got a highlight on the middle "line"

- He got a nose job that turned it from grey to black (to keep consistency to the primary as remarked by JP)

- Moved the eyes a little bit

Still choking?

Does the black space feel too much?

Better. Not sure what to do with the black space. I'm afraid, though, it's always going to remind me of one of my least-favourite sports logos:

this is my first post in this thread and i just wanna say terrific work all around.

for your question about too much black space,

i didn't know how to explain this so i made a very rough copy. But maybe just add the grey on the bottom jaw, idk here's the rough idea

this is just for a general idea. It would look much better in your own style. again, great work

Can not help you with that ;o) Some shadowing on the ball would help a lot but I see your point. That's why I tried another version...

Thank you for taking your time and thinking of a solution. I believe that it could be something like that but it still should work from an anatomy point of view and I don't think that the space you filled out grey works in that aspect.

I tried another version in which the grizzly does not have to eat anything and just look fierce. Think that it could work out that way as well - tried it on a shirt.

Im surprisingly liking the ball under tge chin!

And it seems someone else suggested the grizzly chew the ball :P did you ever try that yet? Or maybe even an update from the current claw one but with it piercing the ball?

i hope this is not too much to ask, and maybe you are already doing it..

but you are soo talented, and your work looks like a real NBA redesign and it is so professional. So i just have to ask if you could make a 3rd logo like many NBA teams do when they rebrand?

of course, i love your work. And would not be mad if you couldn't do this, just an idea to complete the set

I really, really like this awesome Grizzlies concept you got here! Very solid and professional-looking! You also have some really epic drawing skills. Well done!

Your work is amazing Dan. You've got tremendous skills, this is some top notch logo designing. Personally I like the one with the ball under it's chin better than in it's mouth. Also like how you added in the M & G to the nose & chin. Great stuff!

AWESOME. Much better than the grizzly gagging on a basketball. The M on the nose and G on the chin are cool (and hopefully intentional) details.

Thank you guys for your comments. Also like the "ball under the chin"-version better although I'm not completely happy. But that T-Shirt implementation works so perhaps that's enough legitimation ;o)

Worked a bit on the consistency thing. Added lighter grey highlights on the original logo so that the two complement each other better. So this is the set so far:

Tried my luck on a tertiary but so far I could not get anything done that I'm happy with. So perhaps I'll get to that later.

As someone who struggles with animal logos/illustration these just look ace. I've seen many Grizzlies concepts and these are definitely up there. Nice work!

Liking the new secondary much better. Gives the idea that the grizzly is some kind of basketball-bear-spirit. I don't know if that makes any sense, but it's much more powerful idea than gagging on a ball. Kudos.
