  1. It's been awhile but I've done a couple of concepts since the Edmonton one. Have one for the Jets. I went with a more classic striping pattern that is also mimicked on the shoulders. the tough part was deciding what logo to use. while I think I prefer the older logos I don't see them really going back to those. For Montreal, I didn't do the home jersey as there is no reason for me to mess with that. However, I was trying to give the away jersey something new and unique. It's almost a modern touch on a classic look in my opinion. Tried to have some fun with it.
  3. This one was inspired by the new Arenas jerseys they will be wearing for one game during the season. A lot of people have pegged this as their future Winter Classic jersey. I just meant it as a concept off of their 'almost' perfect uniform. To me, all it is would be making the arm striping and hem striping the same width, and of course getting a new style collar from the new Adidas rebrand.
  4. This one my second take on the Sabres Winter Classic jersey. Really started to fall for this logo. Really hope its the main crest logo (even though It probably won't be). Went with a simplistic, traditional feel for this one.
  5. I can't get over how much I want them to wear brown.
  6. This one is the first of the bunch to utilize a concept logo. Logo created by Josh Benksy. If you're on twitter, you can follow him there! Used the brown and gold combo that I feel Boston should go back to. It would be unique to the NHL and I think fits the Bruin name better. Also, looking at Wyomings NCAA Football uniforms this week, I had to go back. I thought it looked gorgeous.
  7. NFL Uniform Concepts

    The second coming of Christ is this thread.
  8. This one was probably my most controversial concept posted to Twitter and Instagram. Biggest complaints were "is this team from Miami?" and "looks like Minnesota." I don't understand the latter, but here is the idea behind it. Took the jade from the original Mighty Ducks set and mashed it with the orange from their current. Also took some ideas from their current set and mashed it together with the original Mighty Ducks jersey. All in all, it's a full combo of current and original.
  9. With design in mind, Illustrator usually takes 30-45 minutes depending on how different the design is and if I have to alter the template in any way. This at minimum is around 45 minutes for simpler designs if I already have them in mind. Like, base stripes, simple logo, no real tampering with the template. Some designs in this like Pittsburgh, Colorado, Vancouver (changing the yoke style, and side panel stripes), CBJ, LV (Stopping the stripes on the sleeve with stitching), and TB, NSH (Intricate, unique sleeve designs) will take usually a base of one hour to an hour and a half including presentation set up. Definitely not ideal time wise but I think it makes up for with the overall final product. And while I don't think Nashville's design would go over well in the hockey world with a lot of fans, just taking the time and trying to make it look realistic helped the cause of when people see it.
  10. Yea would be an easy edit. If theres one thing I dislike about the template it's the helmet. I think using the quick placement is a bit confusing, and I think the helmet looks too robotic/bulky so I don't even use it
  11. Yes, it is. For me, it's been amazing. Totally worth it. It's been a help with not only making concepts look more quality but it's helped boost my portfolio by enhancing the whole brand of what I'm showing. I'd say to anyone "serious" about making concepts this is pretty great. It's really easy to use to get the jersey design on there. The line draws at the placement of everything. A lot of people that use the template use the quick placement that the template allows. Example: You double-click on a PS layer and it brings you to a new file. A flat 2D file for you to place your design, logos, etc. Then once you save that file it will translate that into the 3D model. Quick and easy, however, I believe you lose some of the quality you could have. A lot of the design and stitching I do is all manual onto the template just to give it a little more realism. Still, though, it's been worth every penny.
  12. Going to be posting NHL jersey concepts I've done so far throughout the year. Completely random if it's a Home & Away or an alternate. Would love to hear feedback on all of these. Some a bit wild, some conservative! Might not go back to some of these but still would love to discuss! Just going to be dumping these here.
