Owl - Fly By Night

Owl - Fly By Night - student project

I decided I wanted to use an owl as my animal, as it is one of my favorites to design. After trying a couple different phrases out, I thought "Fly By Night" would fit well.

Once I had my source image, I began the outlined process of sketching the outlines, and working the letters into the outline. Above is my final rendering of this process on tracing paper.

[FINAL COMPOSITE]

Lastly, I took the image into Illustrator to clean up the vectors a bit, then over to Photoshop for compositing and texture! Here's the final product!

I think if I were to go back and change anything, I'd reconsider the owl tufts on the "B," looks a little too much like devil horns at second glance.

Great class, fun project! Looking forward to the next one!
