Would you be able to recreate a couple logos?

1. Orrnado
2. The one I have for my profile photo?

Your work is great and ISU should really hire you out lol.

here's an idea on how the current mascot mark could be improved if it were up to me.
Something a little less Bucky-like would be nice. This is too close to Bucky. Also, at that angle, with his tail feathers, looks too much like a long 'duster'coat.

How about a redesign? Walking CY, like your last, but similar to the Bucky angle? Keep the same head as your last. ISU Logo Cy amestoplease w_Signature.jpg
Edit: Keep same body as this one also. Just maybe a different "bucky' angle, and one with a smile-face.

i'm not understanding how this has any similarities to Bucky whatsoever other than the angle.

as for the tail feathers...i mean, that's what a cardinal looks like. the current version of barrel chested cy has some kind of turkey feather butt thing going on that i never understood.

To my eye, the black outlines read so much better! The outlining may actually be a little heavy, but they don't disappear into the background the way that the cardinal with dark cardinal does.

I prefer the black, too, vs. the dark cardinal. Agree it's still a bit heavy. Probably can't be too thin/hairline, but maybe reduce width of it all by 50%.

I maybe just don't see what you see. The two pics you
posted were not good resolution.

Keep doing you. It usually comes out good. When you are a little more done, post a better resolution pic next to the old bucky. I bet I'll like your version better.

Edit: I just 'clicked on' to your pics. The resolution is fine when you do that! A lot of people, including me, probably don't do that though. They are good, now that I see them better. The tail just seems off to me still. Perhaps use a darker 'dark red' for the one on the left. I like the black outline one better also.

Ames, do the tail differently, raise it up some maybe? Honestly, I like the bucky tail better. Give us a different head option, one closer to your previous? Otherwise, good work.
ISU Logo amestoplease_barrelcy_color_options.jpg Current Bucky ISU Logo CurrentCy2 HalfSize.jpg Your version is better. It's just not there yet for me. The "I" is better, of course. I like how you've done away w/ the barrel chest. Do something different with the tail and you'll have it.

Our current bucky-Cy's head just never looked right (among other things). Even though he is walking at a 45 degree angle, the head is pictured at a 90 degree angle. I never liked that.

Ames' version of the head is much better.

Cy always looks better when not on a background of the same color.
