  1. ADIDAS NHL

    Thanks for the advise NoE38.
  2. ADIDAS NHL

    Yeah, I tried to attach the URL from my Photobucket account like the instructions said, but I'm not seeing anything. Am I missing something?
  3. ADIDAS NHL

    Hi everyone. Long time reader, first time concepter. I've had a long time hobby of making sports uniforms (mostly hockey uniforms). I'm not a graphic artist by any means (I use Paint and Paint.net), but I try to make as clean of a presentation as possible. I thought I'd try my hand at creating or tweaking each NHL uniform (just home and road - no alts) with a short explanation of my thought process. Since Adidas is now supplying the NHL's uniforms, I used their template (courtesy of SportsLogos.net). First up is the Anaheim Ducks. While their current uniform isn't bad, my feeling is that the Flyers own orange and black, so I went back to the eggplant and teal that Anaheim started out with. It's a unique color combo that many people still think of when they think of this franchise. The team added orange to represent Orange County, so I kept a splash of orange. It seems to go well with the eggplant and teal. I like the D logo they currently use for their main crest, so I kept that (just recolored it) and I used their original logo as their secondary (again, just recolored). The striping pattern is based on their current pattern. Any critiques or opinions are welcome.
  4. Absolutely love the Islanders set. There was always something about their first Reebok uniforms that I liked. This combines them with their classic uniforms perfectly. The way the upper sleeves match the hem is brilliant. Get these on the ice now!
  5. Old Uniforms That Are Better Than Their Current Uniforms

    The Sharks had it right the first time.
  6. I really like the Florida set. I've seen a few of these concepts floating around based on what their supposed to wear next year, but this one looks the best. I would put the shoulder patch on both arms and I would ditch the blue hem - it doesn't add anything. It just blends in with the pants and makes the jersey look shorter. Overall though, nice job.
  7. Minnesota Wild Clean Up

    I like the addition of red to the home jersey. Maybe just thicken the number trim on the home and roads to make the numbers stand out a little more (especially on the home green). I'm not a fan of the alternate, though. You already have a green jersey - no need for another one. In my opinion, the current red jersey would be a perfect alt, but I've read that a lot of Wild fans, like yourself, don't like them. I know that we hear the "Christmas" comparison all the time, but I think red and green are a nice color combo.
  8. Tampa Bay Rays Rebrand added 4/3

    As a fellow Cardinal fan, I really like the changes you made on your Cardinals rebrand. I agree with using the navy cap/red bill hat as the primary. Right now, they have a red overload - plus they've used the navy cap/red bill throughout much of their history. I'm not a big fan of their cream alts either, but I do like the "St. Louis" script on them with the birds on the bat. I wouldn't mind seeing that script on your roads. I don't know if it was intentional, but I even like the "blockish" type numbers you used instead of their current style. Nice work.
  9. NFL 2020: AFC West

    I really like the Steelers concepts. I LOVE the fact that the block number font is restored. It looks so much better than the italicized number font they use now. Yeah, the numbers are a little big on the concepts, but the main idea comes across.
  10. Totally agree with your changes for the Steelers and Bengals.
  11. Fixing the NHL (COMPLETED)

    The Panthers, Sharks and Canucks need to change to your designs asap! I'd make one small tweak to the Panthers set, though. I'd use the "crossed hockey stick/palm tree over the sun" shoulder logo from their originals.
  12. I really like the Bengals and the Cowboys sets. They have the best elements of their classic looks, but with a modern touch. Question - why does the blue Cowboys jersey have a star on the front, but the white one doesn't? Also, I really like the Titans uniform with the light blue jersey. I'd like to see a white version that emphasizes the light blue (light blue numbers, etc).
  13. TylerG's NHL (Islanders Alternate! Updated 9-5)

    Absolutely love the Canucks set (with the V in the sleeve stripes) - perfection! I'd like to see black numbers with white trim on the Penguins home and road sleeves. Love the Capitals V2 set, but I agree with Lycan 38 in that something needs to be done with the collars. As a Blackhawks fan, I never like to see changes to the Hawks classic set, but the matching of the sleeve stripe to the hem stripe on the red jersey is a change that I wouldn't mind seeing. They actually had this striping pattern from the late 1950s to the early 1960s, so there is a precedent for it. Overall, great work on this project.
  14. MLB: Only home whites and road grays are to be worn on Opening Day and for all playoff games (Wild Card play-in game thru the World Series). Every player is to show at least 6" of his socks (no stirrups - full socks only because a lot of players don't know how to properly wear stirrups) and every player's pants must at least cover his knees (no more "biker shorts" look - yes, I'm looking at you, Hunter Pence!). NFL: The pants color and the top of the sock color must contrast (no more "leotard" look). The only exception would be white pants and white socks, as long as there are stripes at the top of the socks. NHL: White jerseys at home, colored jerseys on the road (right now, every game looks the same). For example, every Blackhawks home game is red vs. white, every Maple Leafs home game is blue vs. white, etc. White jerseys at home will bring more color variety to each team's home games. Original 6 matchups are to be color vs. color unless the colors clash (Det/Mtl, Det/Chi, Chi/Mtl, Tor/NYR).
