  1. I agree. I prefer that set to the new one, especially the numbers which work so much better

    I have to say that I prefer the styling of the older one. I love the snarl on the face and the more rugged, wild look of the fur. It feels more collegiate, if that makes sense. However, I do like what you've done with the the second one. It's well done in its own right but might be just a little too slick, for my taste,in the context that it is for Michigan. That's just my 2 pennies. Love seeing your work on here by the way
  3. It's great. I love it. The real new one looks pretty slapdash. Yours however definitely looks like there was some time and thought put into it.
  4. You are correct. Not really sure what happened but I'll fix the name. Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it.
  5. Here's another one, haven't had time to make the tweaks suggested, but I'll try to get them posted. Today I've got the Tampa Bay Rays, who currently sport one of the most boring uniforms in MLB. I basically wanted to do something fun and colorful for the Rays, so we have gradients and a bright blue color scheme with a touch of green. Also as you can see, the sting ray is back and the the sun ray motif is history. Thanks for taking the time to look and I'd appreciate any comments.
  6. This was an April fools joke right? If so that's too bad because I think that helmet is actually pretty sharp.
  7. Thanks for the feedback. I'll post the Padres with a blue alt cap and see what I can do about Seattle
  8. The middle one is definitely the best. I love the brown orange white color scheme. I like the one on the right too, but I think I'd prefer it with a green jersey. Great work like always and I love this thread
  9. Appreciate the comments guys. Here is another one for everyone's viewing pleasure, the Seattle Mariners. New all around for the Mariners. I started with the colors and the logos for the Mariners. I began to take a good, hard look at the Mariners logos and realized that I didn't like them very much so I decided to go with something a bit simpler and fresher than the relatively boring roundel that is currently the team's primary logo, by making the compass rose more prominent. I also think the teal is a bit dreary so I lightened it up a bit to contrast the navy blue better. Once again, I drew some some inspiration from the past with the lowercase wordmarks, which I think are a nice little quirk. Thanks for taking a look and I would appreciate any comments.
  10. Okay well here is one more team that I have finished, the San Diego Padres. The Padres are boring and cannot seem to decide what they want to look like. I decided to both pull some inspiration from the past and move forward with their look at the same time. Brown is back for the Padres, this time with sky blue and gold. I went with an old school approach to the logo, bringing back the swinging Friar and a roundel. The swinging Friar also appears on the home and away uniforms as a sleeve patch. This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I think the Padres were on to something with the sand road unis, so I brought that back back. The uniform script is inspired by the type one might see on a post card, considering San Diego is a popular vacation destination. Does the color scheme work? What does everybody think about the logo? Thanks for taking a look and please feel free to offer C&C on the Padres or any of the three concepts. Thanks again for your time.
  11. I don't know, maybe. I have a couple more teams that I finished a while ago and just never posted. I'll probably post them, but I don't specifically have plans to do the entire MLB. I appreciate your interest, though
  12. Thanks, appreciate the comment. I've been sitting on these for a while so I figured I might as well show another one. Here's the Cincinnati Reds. This time I have included an alternate uniform and batting practice jersey. I removed all of the black from the uniforms, except for the Mr. Redlegs sleeve patch. I kept their current font sans drop-shadow because I really like the old-timey vibe it gives off. The double piping on the placket also recalls the past in the way it crosses over itself on the front of the jersey. I included a white hat and vest as a home alternate and a simple red BP jersey with a new REDS script across the front and a Mr. Redlegs cap. I was going for addition by subtraction here, with the idea that simpler is better in mind. Thanks for taking a look and I'd appreciate any and all feedback.
  13. the St Louis Cardinals are my baseball team and they have always looked good to great as far as I'm concerned. However I was pretty disappointed when they emoted the blue hats to "alternate" status a few years ago and added the unnecessary cream St Louis alt. If the Cardinals must messa round with their look, I would like to see them do something like this: There aren't many huge changes here. The biggest changes are probably the addition of an updated Sluggerbird sleeve patch, and the tweaked logos with yellow eyes as a throwback to previous iterations of the Birds on the Bat. I also removed the front numbers because I think baseball uniforms generally look better without them. I love the way the Cardinals have looked throughout their history when they wear a blue cap with a red bill, so it has become the primary cap and a red bird-on-bat cap would be the home Sunday cap. The changes are pretty straight forward and simple, but I think they do improve upon a look that is already very very good. Please let me know what you thing, I would love to ear some C&C. Thanks for taking the time to have a look.
  14. I agree 100% with all of this. The wing is rendered well enough but kind of says "Olympians" like Hermes? I think, more so than Titans. Titans are supposed to be the big bad dudes and I think the flames would be more appropriate.
  15. I definitely wouldn't pencil in Carolina just yet. In my experience watching football it's a whole lot easier for a very good defense to shut down a very good offense than it is for a great offense to impose their will on a great defense. From what I've seen this year Denver has a great defense and Carolina's offense is very good also. Carolina is definitely better overall but even a severely compromised Peyton Manning is still Peyton mentally and if the Broncos can put together a couple TD drives and the defense plays like they are capable of, they have, IMO, a good chance to beat the panthers. I think we'll get a very exciting Super Bowl and I wouldn't be upset to see either team win but I'm always pulling for manning to get another ring.
