A team MASCOT,-- a german Shepard hawk that HAS A RHINO INSIDE???? Looking to create a mascot based on attached illustration style of 70's style football decals. Reference of creature attached.
Note the "rough" hand style, and filled in "halftone" for colors of the Lion. This is exactly how I want the beast drawn!!!!!! The photo mock-up can in fact be charicatured in proportions. I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A TRACE, or EXACT proportions pf the photo asset of beast!
The sport the mascot should be playing is SOCCER.
FRANKENSTEINED together with a Rhino Horn PIECRING through it's skin. It needs to look MUTANT. Is it a Hawk? A Rhino? Rabid dog with drool??? WTF????
Keep to the historical reference of illustration for aesthetic & coloration.
You should take some "caricature" liberty-- in creating more Cartoon like proportions.
Consider a Larger, head on the dog.
More of an arched, hunched back, as if he's gathering energy to explode!
Spit and slime from his mouth.
Ears pulled further back, in a FEROCIOUS signal to bite.
More frankenstein suture lines. This poor beast was CUT and SEWN together from the cadavers of other animals. Even, for instance, the "foot" sewn back into the knee.
Eye, larger, with blood shot expression. He is a sick, demented, tortured creature.
But the "animated" posture, and Mascot like proportions make him feel harmless? That is the irony, and tension in the design!!!!!!!
Final file must be build at 12" X 12" min, and 350dpi. The outline layer in BLACK, must be seperate. All individual colors on SEPERATE layers, composed in one view, so we can easily change color if neccessary. Final file format is .PSD
