Ostrich Logo

My initial animal thought was the kangaroo, but after looking through the project gallery, I noticed several other kangaroo projects. Not wanting to find myself copying the work of others, I googled "animals." Obviously this brought up a gigantic range of options as my search was not narrow. Eventually I settled on the ostrich and set to work on a mood board. See below:

Then I moved onto tracing paper and sketching; below:

After the initial sketches I brought my work into Illustrator, making prints and doing more tracing as I moved through the process. I especially found myself struggling with the ostrich's tail. It wasn't until I did more image searching, work in Illustrator, and sketching with tracing paper that I came to a solution. I'm still not 100% sure it is the best solution, but I'm relatively satisfied for now.

Gridding with circles. This was a really fun - and mesmerizing - process for me. I've seen it used before but until watching this lesson, didn't really realize how it was used.

The final mark, a Running Ostrich logo. I hope you all enjoy it! Feedback & criticisms are certainly welcome.
