i am trying to make a logo for a photographer. i want to make a shutter, representing a minimalistic peacock. while searching, a similar design is already exhisting, nevertheless a hawk instead of a peacock.
easy to recreate with illustrator, except for the wings.
first one: logo with hawk
below (b/w) peacock. on the right the wings, but i can't get them to be "cartoonish/spriral-like) like the example... with the rotate/duplicate tool i can make nice peacock wings, but then i give up....
I have the sneaking feeling that what may be right for an eagle isn’t necessarily right for a peacock.
Have a good look at a real peacock to see what peacocks are about.
There are lots of peacock images on Google
You may like to calculate(like you did in the eagle logo, head+x*wing=360) and use transform effect(effct->distort and transform->transform)
Group object(s) with a rectangle or circle without fills/strokes(it must be the same as or larger than the art, also its center must be the center of the art) then apply transform effect.
note: eagle logo was NOT made by me. but using this as a refference. in the meantime i have emailed the designer of the hawk logo explaining my idea's. unfortunately immediately threathening with copyright infringements etc. guess i have to find another approach...
