It looks really nice Mike, just feels like the bottom type was a an afterthought. It doesn't flow in well with the rest IMO.

Good work, as usual. I think that there is no need for that plug though.

Thanks guys, yeah I kind of like the break of type here. The tail directs you to electrical. I think it fits ok.*VLD, thanks but don't you think it adds a bit more personality and purpose than some ordinary crest type Griffin logo? I think the those two subtle things is what makes it unique.

Frankly, I didn't noticed the tail until I read the description... The tongue is enough IMO.

solid work mike, tail is a nice touch, only grip is I would like to see a bigger bolt coming from the mouth thought it would probably unbalance it.

Hmmm, the plug is great, not seeing an issue.

The tail and tongue read great. Congrats, this will do well.

Visually it looks amazing. The tongue and tail are perfect. A clever twist doesn't have to scream at you from 100 miles away. This serves it's purpose perfectly.

I was just reading up on griffen/gryphon lore the other day, ironically. Thing is, when it comes to illustrating them...they have lion's paws for their rear-half. At the moment, if I didn't see the word 'Griffen' there, I may have just thought this was a falcon, or an eagle. Due to the bottom half not resembling lion's paws, but ordinary talons. Otherwise, superb illustrative work so far. Also, love the type as-is, great contrast. Don't touch the type.

JF - the hind quarters, the lion half, might be out of view as this is front on, in that case, it would make sense to depict the talons...also this hybrid is electric, times have changed since ancient asia!

Thanks for the comments guys.*JF Raja's right kind of a hybrid version, but I made some subtle changes based on comments. So now everyone is happy %3B)

JF Apr. 03 '10

Good point, Raja. The reason I assume that is the bottom-half, tho, is because if where the tail/cord comes from. It puts the body of the beast almost stitting down, on its tail. As a result, the %22G%22 is the under-belly, the chest area even. What might be an enhancement to this illo is to have two talons grasping the %22G%22 on the upper corners of the crest/chest, and have the two feet that are currently drawn look more like paws. Also, because there is a lack of two sets of feet here, to make a true impact of gryphon anatomy, this creature must have both sets showing. Otherwise, it visually can only make the viewer assume a gryphon/griffin is some breed of bird. What is unseen is unknown to the uninitiated. Again, great work so far.

Since when did a hexagon become a sextagon? %3B)**Very nicely balanced Miguel. No-one can do this kind of logo like you, apart from Vonster maybe.

Thanks Roy and everyone for your comments. I really do appreciate hearing but you know what? I cannot please everyone. As you can see I listen but every little change I make, I must change everything in the design. Thus ruining the integrity of the logo. We don't want a Frankenstien logo :) I have been back on forth on this and going to sit on this for now. Cheers.
