ELKS

I have chosen to create an elk logo. I'd like it to be braying or looking back. I hope it will be elegant and light (not heavy, complicated or strong).

Sketches

I couldn't choose one image (as I like elements from different ones) so just started  rough (very) tracing and sketching.

I didn't like where my first idea was going so changed direction.

Final Results

My final design still seemed a bit complicated so I tried to simplify further.

When I asked my son what he thought of my efforts he said "It looks like a SPIDER".

OK not exactly what I wanted- but I have learned a lot:

  1. Choose the first image wisely-just one.
  2. Use the least number of anchor points (easier said than done-I'm still getting to grips with the pen tool).
  3. I need to learn how to do  gridding.
