  1. Yeah you're probably right. I'm not too happy with the Dolphins uniform. Maybe I'll go mono Aqua instead? Thanks for the comment
  2. Well I guess I'll go ahead and show you guys what I came up with for this week's matchup between the Bengals and the Dolphins. I really like the concept behind the all white Bengals uni, but it just doesn't work the way it should if it had a white helmet. So I went with an all black look for the Bengals. For the visiting Dolphins, I scrapped the creamscicle look for a mono white fauxback to the Marino era with the current colors and logos. Thanks for taking a look and I'd really appreciate any comments or input anyone has.
  3. It's nice. Can't complain that's it's not well done but the ny logo is better on the helmet imo. Love your work by the way. I always look forward to opening your concept threads.
  4. Just one quick update: Changed the Patriots' numbers back to white but I decided to keep the striping silver because it ties into the helmet better.
  5. I appreciate the feedback. I think you are probably right about the silver. I wanted to change it mostly for the sake of change but it was probably about as good as it was going to get with the white stripes and numbers. I'll probably go back and change it back to white
  6. Since the Color Rush uniforms debuted last week I have been thinking of ways to improve them. That being said, I am pretty much opposed to the whole Color Rush idea on principle. I hate the mono look of the socks pants and shoes, but since the NFL is rolling with it I decided to go ahead and try to come up with uniforms that I cold live with but also adhere to the silly Color Rush program's guidelines. I'm a week late getting these started, but the plan is to release each matchup on Wednesday of every week there is a TNF Color Rush game and release the uniforms for the Colts, Redskins and Lions throughout the season. Here's the schedule just for reference: Week 2: Bills vs Jets Week 3: Patriots vs Texans Week 4: Dolphins vs Bengals Week 5:Cardinals vs 49ers Week 6: Broncos vs Chargers Week 7: Bears vs Packers Week 8: Titans vs Jaguars Week 9: Falcons vs Buccaneers Week 10: Browns vs Ravens Week 11: Saints vs Panthers Week 12: Thanksgiving (Lions, Redskins, Colts) Week 13: Cowboys vs Vikings Week 14: Raiders vs Chiefs Week 15: Rams vs Seahawks Week 16: Giants vs Eagles So without further ado, Here is the first Color Rush matchup: I had a hard time deciding whether to put the Bills in blue or red, but since they have mad wearing mono-blue a regular occurrence, red was the way to go. The striping is different than the current but hearkens back to the striping of the Jim Kelly-era uniforms. The Jets are in all white to avoid another colorblind fiasco. However, they are not just wearing their regular white uniforms as the green has been changed to kelly green which the Jets have used throughout their history (and hopefully future). The predominately white logo is a throwback to the 1964 season. I also have the uniform matchup for the second Color Rush game to present today. This matchup features the Houston Texans and New England Patriots: I didn't really change much of the Patriots uniforms besides adding some sock stripes and changing the white stripes to silver, So this one is less of a concept and more of a tweak, hopefully for the better. I was actually pretty disappointed in the Texans for what I thought was a lazy attempt at a color rush. The Texans are in white which I though would be the best backdrop to showcase the red and blue team colors, especially with the Patriots in blue. I used the logo as inspiration for the sleeve design and striping as well as the socks, which I realize now might not be Color Rush Kosher? Anyway thanks for taking a look and I'd love to hear your c&c or other input anyone has PS: I know the first two are traditional color vs white matchups, but there will be plenty of color in the future.
  7. 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
  9. 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.
  10. You are correct. Not really sure what happened but I'll fix the name. Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it.
  11. 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.
  12. This was an April fools joke right? If so that's too bad because I think that helmet is actually pretty sharp.
  13. Thanks for the feedback. I'll post the Padres with a blue alt cap and see what I can do about Seattle
  14. 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
  15. 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.
