One of those Logos I was excited about and thought would be an easy one for me... WIP. I'm liking it now finally after many attempts.

What do you guys think. Pupil dark or blind eye like this http://dribbble.com/shots/75774-Dwd
I'm definitiely leaning for blind eye considering no light of the deep sea.???
you've got some mad skills man.
Btw nice fish:)
Pupil dark for sure.
Thanks for input guys, now I'm really confused. I'm still leaning towards light pupil. If you have looked at these deep she fish the have no pupil and Blinded by the light.
So 2 to one so far.
I also have a black pupil, the error is seen, but bubbles are also additional, the whole work is interesting.
Blind eye is better; more accurate, gives attention to the Angler Fish's light. I think you were on the right track with that one.
I like the blind eye better, looks cooler imho.
Blind eye for me too...to compensate with the pressure of those depths a lot of sealife have an extra thick film over their lenses (not too different from cataracts). Also I'd imagine that if they had large, unprotected pupils whilst lighting up their fluoroscopic parts it would let too much light in - damaging the retinas.
Thanks Guys. I guess it's up to the client now but I totally agree with you Hayes. My exact reasoning and thoughts.
Again, great stuff Mike! :)
Thanks Michael and Type 08, I believe the Blind eye is the direction that will be taken.
I agree with that direction.
Great fish Mike :)
I also like how you've incorporated the Registered mark into a bubble trail. :)
so sweet, Mike. great character.
Glad I could help.
Mike this is an awesome illustration. Have you tried adjusting the levels so that the colours are darker? I think this may increase the depth and make the light more apparent but that's just my opinion. Either way it looks great. Well done mate :)
I really like this, and when I looked at the one with the light pupil, I liked it more. Have you considered not having any pupils at all? When I think of angler fish, I always think of the one from Finding Nemo, it's lack of pupil gave it this powerful feel, because you can't tell where it was looking... Great job! I'm new to LP and I'm loving your work.
My bad JF yes, Thanks You and Hayes saw my vision :)
Gareth, I know exactly what you mean I struggled with that for a while. This project was hard because of the light /dark issue. I had to come up with a happy medium to make make it work on Black and White BG's.
As far as the pupil goes IMO tI think it needs some life :) and the Blind eye has just the right bit.
Top job Mike.
great illy mike.
Logomotive owns deep water :) great work on mark, mate
Thanks guys. Deiv No desire for the DeepSea pretty scary down there :)
Hi! Nice work Mike ;)
Great illustration Mike. Happy medium on the eye is perfect (I'm assuming this is the one). Understand the struggle from a literal standpoint, but ultimately the darker eye makes it more inviting as an illy, and the fat that it's not 100% black still shows that its visionally impaired. Awesome job! You managed to make one of the nastiest looking creatures of the sea aesthetically pleasing. You got talent brutha!
The mark is so crazy Mike!
I like the blind eye. Draws the viewing eye to the light. Very nice.
Very strong mark man. I love this one. ^floated/ fav'd.
This is one badass illy. But just out of curiosity, is there even a need for a pupil at all? I realize you're taking a few creative liberties with your rendition, but deep sea Anglerfish don't have visible pupils...do they? At least not in the pictures I've seen. The pupil adds personality, yes, but not having it eliminates the dark/light pupil dilemma. Overall, this is a really nice mark. I love the integration of the registered symbol, and the custom type (something that seems to have been overlooked by many, based on the comments) is SEXAY.
Cheers Guys, yeah No Pupil would be too eerie and dark is just too dark IMO, so Middle of the road here :) just the creators vision here.
With blind eyes this fish looks too... horribly... (:
dude! the bubbles rising from the trademark is a great touch. blind for me as well.
Cheers all. Yeah I thought the bubbles added a bit of life. and helped in case of type only here.
If you see any kind of light in the dark DO NOT GO FOR iT!!!!
what is the name of that font?
Thanks... Sagi I don't know it's been manipulated to death.
You are the best
