^ Sketchbook concepts done with pen and ink.
I was fond of the bottom-left sketch.
^ Revised design constrained to a circle.
^ Revised Photoshop sketch, "inked" on a separate layer.
^ I saved the ink layer as a transparent PNG prior to making it a vector.
(This is a JPG for visibility.)
^ The finalized logo per Sheila's suggestions.
She was very happy with it.
This logo was a commission for my aunt's friend. It was fun to create and gave me the opportunity to review some of Illustrator's core functions.
