Without knowing what it should present it's an image which has letters. The watcher of course can associate it to something by guessing and some improvement opinions are possible based on watcher's own experience but do they make the logo better for your purposes - probably not, it's random. I guess it's HV. If it must be seen as HV then let it be HV with ...

Unless you want this converted to a vector format (which is probably not that easily doable with a single step, like an image trace in AI), you'll probably do this quicker in Photoshop, but keep it in PNG format - even better if the PNG is transparent. Just open the PNG in Photoshop, select around the text, hit Ctrl+U, tick Colorize, then play with the ...

The only way to do this in Illustrator would be to use a gradient on path outline (stroke), instead of shape. (Post CS6) You will have to recreate your path as a line instead of a shape. Draw a path in the shape you want then apply a gradient to the stroke. In the Gradient Panel Window→Gradient (Ctrl+F9), you want to switch it to Apply gradient along ...

Too often digital art looks digital. All stroke weights are the same, there's no nuance to the line vocabulary, there's no variation in depth perception, no inherent "wonkiness" to curves, etc. All these things are natural, common, expected, occurrences with hand drawn artwork. This is a primary reason I have always disliked "sketching" digitally. There's ...

The problem with a hand drawn sketch can be if it's pretty loose and has a lot of unnecessary lines. Your brain interprets the sketch, sees only the ideal average strokes and ignores all the noise. You kind of see a well-defined drawing, but it's halfway imaginary. When you digitize the idea you are forced to decide exactly where to place the lines and you ...

Your original idea has variable width curves or more exactly knife blade or bliz looking shapes. A couple of uniform stroke widths and rounded corners are poor substitutes, the edge is lost. Draw with the pen closed shapes with no stroke. The next is only my guess of a couple of the letters of your pencil sketch redrawn with the pen in Illustrator: As ...

When in doubt, ask for references or provide references (actual photos of existing 'mascot' logos, think Michelin, Jaguar, WWF, etc), to help yourself and the client identify the type of work needed, then figure out if that's something you can actually do. This is the typical case of a vague briefing that only reveals itself in full after the terms (...

The answer is that it will either require an illustrator (capable of performing a limited number of poses and familiar with how 2d animations are executed) or a 3d artist that can create a model (also familiar with how 3d animations are executed. For character animations, I would first inquire with the client to determine just what sort of form these ...
