Unova Region Sports Team logos

The fifth set is finally complete of my rather ambitious project I set for myself (which is even more ambitious for me cause of my track record of not completing some projects I start). In case you're wondering what this project is I talk of, I am currently creating logos based on a pokemon gym, the city it's in, and one of the pokemon used in the gym. I'm working my way through each region in the order of the games which is: Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova. I was hoping to have these done in time for the release of Pokemon X and Y, but that didn't happen. I'm going to continue doing these logos though, and even expand it to include the the Kalos region from X and Y.

For the Unova region I've done things slightly different to the previous sets I've done. Since Unova is the region of two sets of games, Black and White and Black 2 and White 2, there are more than the standard eight gym leaders. So I'm going to do logos based on the eight gym leaders met in the first game and then do an extra three which are the non-repeated ones in the second game. As for the order they'll come in I'm going to go through the first eight gyms then have the extra three gyms at the end.

I had a tough time and a fun time doing these logos. Some of them hit the mark, some need a revision. As it is any revisions I have planned won't be happening till after I'm finished with each region. 

With the extra three logos I had to do for this one I found myself thinking about the length of time this set would take me a little. However I found that I really breezed through these ones (or it seems like it at least). It did help that I had a break over the holiday season from work so I was able to have a think, not that I did any work on this project over that period, and when I came back to doing it I quickly proceeded through the rest. The Sentinels, Bolts, Blizzards, and Spinners are probably my favourites from this set. Looking back at them all I know now that I rushed some just so I had them done whereas if I gave myself more time I would probably do a few revisions to get things really nailed down perfectly. However as stated above any revisions will have to wait.

I did find myself thinking differently about some of these logos. Some were more minimalist while others were more complicated. By stretching myself further either way I found myself enjoying each logo more thus speeding up the time it took to move onto the next one. In previous sets I was enjoying the work, but this set I enjoyed even more. It's only now that I've looked back that it is obvious. I can't wait to get the next set done now :)

Once again I want to thank :iconalealiakitsune: for listening to my problems on the series and giving my great feedback about it. It is really appreciated :)
