    There are so many hot* colors in the first one, that the airbrush doesn't come off all that hot. It's more effective to load up on the cooler colors and make the contrast of the warm/cool more dramatic.

    Pretty cool, though.

    Edit: *I meant "hot", not "cool". And it's not really just the background... although if you were to load up with cooler colors, it would help. But I think the airbrush would look hotter if it were the main warm color (with just a little reflection on the dragon).

    Too many colors in the background then?

    I prefer the second one's simplicity. The first one looks pretty busy and I don't think the dragon pops out from the background quite as much as I'd like it to (especially the arm and airbrush). Perhaps you could make the fiery area on the background smaller or something? But otherwise very appealing work, both layout- and colourwise.

    Logos need to read quickly, they are symbols, simplified shapes and information, they need to read immediately. A good test for quick read is to walk across the room and look at it with distance.

    Logos have strong think LINES, they work as black and white, and there is no detail, that is saved for a painting of it. Color is minimal, a good logo works (can be recognized) as a really little piece of art. Logos are best made in Illustrator using vectors. If you make them in Photoshop they look like shit when you make them small cause they pixelate really bad.

    Wrap your dragon around your image, then it won't appear like the page/design ends or it doesn't have a body. Old story of a monastary who asked a famous artist to paint a dragon on a ceiling, he said,"I can't, I have never seen a real dragon." The monks said,"You first have to become one."

    I have 2 red dragons tattooed on my chest. Keepers of the imagination.

    Only crit is to use less color. Many logos are vector, and only use 4 colors (PERIOD. NO GRADIATION!!) so they can be cheaply printed. Just something to keep in mind!

    Very, very nice... Although logo-wise, it's too complicated... What's the CMYK colour values you're gonna be using for printing?...

    LONG LIVE YOKO KANNO!!!

    O this is not the logo for print. This is just an exercise for me to do a high-detail version and correct alot of the problems I had in the original one, and make a portfolio peice.
