  1. The jet is still off (especially the nose and tail section). If you take away the word mark, I'd guess it was a rocket or missile of some kind. Do an image search of "top view of a fighter jet" and you will get a better idea on the shape adjustment you need to make. I also suggest centering the jet in the triangle. There is a lot of empty space in the triangle. Maybe thicken the beginning of the red trail, and thin it a little at the curve.
  2. The shape of your train is good, but it feels like a coloring book image that has been paint bucket filled. SIMPLIFY. SIMPLIFY. SIMPLIFY. You have too much detail. We can tell it is a train without the detail. Thicken all your shape defining black lines and get rid of the rest (the color change creates its own line). You are using 6-7 colors and high schools usually can't afford ($$) to reproduce graphics (paper & apparel) with more than 3 colors. Now that you have a good overall shape, work on giving it a motion/movement perspective (find some good logos of trains/cars/boats/etc. that imply motion and use that to inspire you).
  3. Great idea for the league crest. Think about making the width of the blue outline of your crest match the width of the 5 kubbs on the top of the crest.
  4. I agree that It would be more cost effective for the school to rebrand, but keep the Tigers mascot. The idea to switch to the Express is good. The mascot is more unique than a tiger, but don't fall into the same trap as your school by recycling the logo from the Roanoke Express. Find a photo of a train you love and use your skills to create an original logo from the photo. Then use this board to get suggestions to make your original logo even better. (... and the F on your helmet really looks like University of Florida's alternate F logo).
  5. My only critique is that your template would be better if it was symmetrical and proportional. The shorts are very short.
  6. For a 3/4 view you really need both antlers. The black outline around the antlers seems very thick compared to the rest of the logo. It is also odd that there are four points on the antler and five points on the outline (no alignment).
  7. These designs all look nice. One minor thing that bothers me though is that you are centering the sponsor logo on the vertical mid-line centered from of the left and right edges of the body rather than the true 3 dimensional mid-line that aligns with the point of the v-neck. With the 1/4 rotated view you are using, the sponsor logos all look as if they are shifted toward the player's right armpit.
  8. I think the bottom left uses the space better and has the better color scheme. I suggest you change the horse's mane to the color used in the top left. It would contrast better with the current background. Right now the mane and background are the same color which makes it harder to define the mane that is wrapping around the neck. My big issue is with the snout being too thin. The bottom jaw is nonexistent. If you add a thin cream color jaw line connecting to the chin it could make big difference. I like the eye with and without the pupil. Without is more menacing.
  9. For me, taking away the slant and thinning the outline is not much of a redesign or an improvement. Get creative. You have an opportunity to take it in a new direction. Maybe a new font. Maybe thinning the letters to make a truly interlocking monogram. Search out pro & college monograms that you really like and emulate that style. Push your limits. Don't get boxed in by the current logo.
  10. I think it may look better without the thick purple whiskers. See what it looks like without whiskers. If you want to keep the whiskers, I suggest making them a little more anatomically correct. Their origin location is currently the corner of the mouth, when they should originate on side of the muzzle. Otherwise, I really like the look. Look at the Penn State whiskers location:
  11. The curves and tight angles you have made with the antlers do not work well with the stroke function. The best thing you can do is take Fraser Davidson's Skill Share class online to learn better techniques for Illustrator. https://www.skillshare.com/classes/How-To-Design-Sports-Logos-Create-Your-Own-Team-Mascot/1492205793?via=user-profile Then practice a lot.
  12. You just offended every resident of Las Vegas by playing into the stereotype of the "Las Vegas Strip". It's kind of like basing an Orlando concept completely on Disney stuff. It is an easy trap to fall into, but notice how the Golden Knights were able to avoid the trap. The western outlaw theme is great (just don't reuse failed team logos). You could also use a mob theme, or atomic testing theme, or air force theme. There is a lot more to Las Vegas than the fake touristy stuff.

    All of the sublimated details are off center. The vertical mid-line of your jersey is aligned with the yellow point on the collar. It is hard to tell, but the Colorado flag C seems slightly distorted or stretched. I also suggest playing around with the C's location, as the belly of the player is a strange place (obviously the chest is the best spot, but that is the sponsor location). Maybe reduce the size by 67% and place it above the sponsor logo????
  14. Take a look at the blue line of the back, where the gold outline of the draped N connects to the gold stroke. The top blue edges don't appear to follow the same curve, as I would expect them to. This also makes the gold stroke appear to have different thickness in that area. It's a great look. The anchor is even growing on me.
  15. You need to improve a few things before you will get more C&C. Your hand drawn designs need to be cleaner. Right now they look sloppy and juvenile. It takes high skill level to pull off crayon. Maybe try colored pencils for more precision. The sizing of your lettering and numbering is inconsistent and doesn't match the sizing of real soccer jerseys. Maybe use a template that is larger, where one jersey fills a complete piece of paper. Hand drawn doesn't need to be perfect, but they need to show appropriate amounts of time and effort were taken. Presentation matters no matter if it is hand drawn or computer drawn. Keep working at it. Improve your presentation and you will start getting that C&C you want.
