Mammoth Logo

So, I chose a Mammoth.  I made some sketches a while ago and had traced themin Illustrator and now the lined file has moved and I can't seem to find them, so no sketches for now.

Here's my final sketch in Illustrator (light gray), with the grid lines on top. While making the circles I decided I wanted a more simplified silhouette so I lost the hair details and the legs, to make it less conventional. It's confusing at first and when I made so many circles I thought it would be hard to know what I was doing, but I got the hang of it and figured it out pretty soon. I obviously didn't follow my initial sketch very closely, but as I was making the circles, this shapes made more sense to me than the light gray sketch.

This is how the outline ended up looking like.

And this is it, finally, with a Mammoth "M" that I couldn't help but put in his belly.

And then I added some tecture:

I hope you like it. This is so different than my usual process and type of logos I make (more handdrawn and less minimalistic), but I loved the results. I'm sure I'll keep using this technique.  

I'd love to hear your comments!
