In my first development I said I used an illustration of a horse for the emblem at the top. Here I have proof of this and will show a quick step by step guide. so firstly I found an image that I liked but we were not allowed to use found images, so what I did was I got the image up on my computer and started to copy it on my macbook.
Icon I was going for.
Firstly I took the pen tool to start to create the outline of the whole head.
Once I had created the shape I filled it in black. I had noticed that in a few areas the edges were a bit sharp so I went around carefully with the rubber tool and erased the sharp edges.
Some of the edges still looked a little sharp though once it was on photoshop I could use a blending technique to make it less obvious.
