Lion Logos

Lion Logos - student project

Well since my astral sign is lion, what better?

I wanted to start with the logo with negative space cause this is what is truly amazing about logos. SO here I drew a bunch of sketches kinda like the one to the right of the ghost image.Lion Logos - image 1 - student project

And since I am truly insipired by your amazing work I had to do a lion leaping logo. So here are some concept designs (obviously I was influenced by your work)

UPDATE 2/18

So here are some more sketches exagarating the leap. Art direction by @George Bokhua


I also wanted to try putting some action in the mane, too.

UPDATE / 2/19

Ok so in the last set of sketches, I think I lost the 'lion' and it kinda looked like tattoo (lion+dragon?!) so I wanted to go a step back and try to bring the lion back, also I kinda dont like the mane so much, it doesnt say 'lion' so I went experimenting with shapes and lines... I like where it is going.. :)

UPDATE #2  / 2/20

I am not sure if I am making the shape too complicated. I like the simplicity of the one above, yet I am not sure if it represents the pose good enough.. so here are some other explorations of the body...Lion Logos - image 8 - student project
