    The concept is solid, but I'd try to integrate the bolts into the diamond more. They seem sort of tacked on as they are now.

  7. You've got a great start here, but as the others have said, it still feels more like an illustration than a logo. Here's a couple of steps I'd recommend to take it to the next level, in no particular order. 1) Smooth your curves. Try to use as few curves and points as possible when you're drawing a logo, while still expressing your meaning clearly. Using Inkscape would help with this tremendously, as its pen tool is far more powerful than Paint's line tool. 2) Work on the waves. The variance in the space between the waves is bringing the logo down a bit, I'd make the negative space a smooth curve, with a consistent width. 3) Cut down on colors. I count 11? colors in the logo, which is too many. Cut down on the shades of browns and blues specifically to make the logo simpler. 4) Make your linework thicker and bolder, the key thing that separates a logo from a sketch or illustration is thick outlines around your shapes. This is an area where Inkscape will be more helpful than Paint. Upping the thickness of your border, and making the masts and flags bolder will make your mark stronger. 5) Clean up shading/highlighting. You've got it all in the right places, but it could use some cleaning up. The lines on the bottom of the boat seem sort of tacked on, I'd cut it down to 2-3 thicker stripes that are a shape rather than just a line, have the thickness taper off at the end and then come to a point. Think like this. Also, I don't think you need a border between all of your shading, especially on the "inside" of the ship. Just putting the two colors next to one another should be enough to get your meaning across. 6) Reduce empty space/Add a background. It's no fault of yours, but any drawing of a ship will feature plenty of empty space between the sails and the actual ship. One way to fix this would be to add a shield or rondel in the background. I'd recommend making the background smaller than the actual ship, so the front, back, and maybe the sails, would be sticking out. Putting in this shape would also help the logo to look better on a variety of color backgrounds without having to recolor things.

  11. Premier Rugby: Dallas Jackalopes

    That's an interesting question, and one I hadn't considered. Kind of crazy a sport as big as rugby had no professional presence for over a century. I'd imagine that the USA was the first to introduce professional rugby, keeping in line with the other big sport of the early days, baseball. The other big rugby nations (England, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand) would hold out for a while, but once players started to defect overseas to get paid, the other nations began to introduce it, probably in the 40s or 50s. The Rugby World Cup would probably be introduced around this time, and would certainly be much bigger than what it is now. The US would probably have been behind the traditional powers for the first couple, but would catch up quickly, and would likely challenge New Zealand's dominance today. The contracts would be about the same as the NFL, maybe a little bit higher even because there are fewer roster spots. I'd think there'd be a handful of foreign players on each team, but most would stay closer to home.

    My friend plays for Sun Prairie, so I'm disappointed to see them fall short. From what I saw of the game, though he played really well, and looks set to go to Whitewater next year. Kimberly is incredible though. 70 straight wins and 5 titles is no small feat.
