Banded Armadillo

I was born and raised in Texas, so I thought it'd be interesting to create a logo mark of Texas' state small mammal, the Banded Armadillo. 

I browsed through some images, but couldn't decide which POV to use, front or profile? So my moodboard ended up with a few different options. 


After a single sketch from a front view, I decided the profile of an armadillo would make the best logo mark. I attempted a few more sketches, but wasnt getting the "logo feel" I was looking for. 


I went back to the moodboard and tried to identify the image with the most smooth and simple lines. My next sketch turned out to be a big step in the right direction. 


Still not sure about the bands. It takes away from the simplicity of the mark, but is such a distinguishing characteristic of the banded armadillo. I'll see how it works out in Illustrator. 

In the mean time, let me know what you think!
