    The making of a logo (critique?)

    A friend of mine recently bought a barn and asked if I would make a logo for them. This is what I have thus far.

    Day one (20 minute sketch)

    Day two (adjusted rider position)

    Day three (added the tail (hated it) fixed the rider's head and shortened the horse's foreleg)

    Day four (fixed the tail, darkened some lines)

    Day five (cleaned up lines)

    Day six (fixed the curve in the back leg)

    Day seven (started computer rendering)

    I need to move the back leg forward and make it a bit longer, but other than that, what do you think?

    Very nice work and it's cool the way you documented your progress.
    I think the back leg is a bit too long, I mean from the inside of the hock to the outside bend of the fetlock.. Also, there isn't enough pasturn befor the hoof.
    One thing, I am not a jumper so I don't have the image of jumping horses well burned in my mind's eye, but that horse has just left the ground? Should his toes be more pointed downward? I really don't know. This is not advice but a question.
    It is always hard to decide how much detail to put in. Your rendering of the rider is really very good. I would guess your client is very happy!

    Its nice, clean, and simple. It will look good no matter what size it is. Which is good for a logo.

    This is the idea for the position the horse is in.

    It's great! What stuck out to me is the long back legs, I think they need to shorten and kind of "fold" a bit more, like in the above pic.

    I agree that the hind legs should be a little more bent. And also on the front leg, it looks kinda empty if you know what I mean? Maybe put another line in there somewheer, maybe a short one where the cannon bone would be.
    But I love it!!!!

    I agree the hind legs should be more bent to be honest I didn't see that until pintotess said and then I noticed but other than that it is good!!!
