  1. Alright, let’s assume that the AHL went under after the 1977-78 season, as it almost did in real life. The IHL was doing pretty well for itself, so naturally the AHL would be absorbed. What if the NHL went on strike in 1994 and again in 2005, ripening the IHL into a full-on competitor? Well, here’s that story. Here’s the current IHL logo in 2018: Teams for the 1978-79 Season (logos and jerseys as well as modern interpretations will be edited in in a few days) Yes, they will be higher quality! Fort Wayne Komets Home: Away: Muskegon Mohawks Port Huron Flags Grand Rapids Owls Flint Generals Saginaw Gears Kalamazoo Wings Toledo Goaldiggers Milwaukee Admirals Hershey Bears Rochester Americans Nova Scotia Voyageurs New Haven Nighthawks Springfield Indians Hampton Gulls Binghamton Dusters Maine Mariners Philadelphia Firebirds New Brunswick Hawks *yes, there will be original team names in the future

    It will look like one uniform after some tweaks.

    1. I thought the v looks neat 2. In my timeline they joined the IHL in the late 90s 3. I forgot to remove the logo.

    Thanks! Would it ruin the uni if I added a light blue wave pattern in the “v”? That was the plan for the finished jersey. Could also be an alt.

    It’s incomplete, but here’s what I’ve been working on.

    Working on some stuff right now. The next of this I’ll post is modern day unis and logos.
  7. Man, I saw these logos on another site and I couldn’t believe my eyes. I also found THE WORST LOGO EVER MADE. Nothing ever proposed can skim the surface of this logo’s scum. No hate tho. This is real. Would you like to see it with a wordmark? COMIC. SANS. The league it’s from has some other duds as well. Woah... WITH wordmark OOFEVEN THIS is a “logo” and its brother... this one’s pretty good Woah. Well, I’ll leave you with the BEST NAME of ANY TEAM EVER... Blind Bubba’s Mellow Thugs.

    Thanks, this means a lot. I’ll try some more original designs. Paint should eventually work, so I’ll have more work up hopefully in a while.

    Oh, I’m definitely farmiliar with Paint, but I have a Mac. That’s a big obstacle in its own right, but dingus me forgot how to run .exes with Wine. I appreciate this, too. But...two things. Firstly, I am basing the information on the actual 70s unis. If it so be, and everybody would prefer unique designs, I’m totally willing. Secondly, I like really bad, stupid looks. They make me laugh. I unironically enjoy this.

    Yep, I tried to get rid of the random marks. I have some better supplies now, so hopefully things will look a lot clearer. As for the coloring inconsistencies, I’ll do some looking into that. Thanks The next best thing is Paintbrush on Mac. In no ways a bad option, but...I have no drawing tablet, so I could draw it with a mouse or use my new supplies.

    Bump: Fort Wayne complete.
  13. Alright, I found a website (topendsports.com) where, I assume, the original operator wanted to catalog every sport. Now, they allow users to submit their own sports. And yes, I read every submitted sport article, and by a landslide, the one that caught my eye the most was Fufu. https://www.topendsports.com/sport/new/fufu.htm I’ve said I like Scrimmy Bingus for how spontaneous and goofy it is. For me, Fufu falls into the same category of dumb, random humor. Two British children made this game. Basically, a half-deflated football (aka soccer, not going there) is kicked or carried with the elbows into the one goal. Pretty much anything goes, except for, and I’m paraphrasing, biting, eye gouging, shin kicking, or nut punches. There are 5 penalty cards, each with its own bizarre name and oddly specific warrant. There are 7 periods if play and in overtime, there is no set time limit. Play continues until one of the children cries. They also include that teams are of 4 players, but come on, that’s not enough. And they encourage rule changes. Can anybody else see this, or have I hallucinated it? People I’ve shown it too also agree how weird it is, even Ethan, and he’s shown me all sorts of weird stuff. What are your opinions of Fufu?

    Thanks for the input.

    I’ve been hard at work honing my skills for the Fort Wayne road jersey. Muskegon’s after that. Edit: Fort Wayne road to be posted today! Edit 2: Done! Not too great, but I have better supplies, so Muskegon should be a jump in quality.

    Just in, in the “horrible logos category”, every logo from the National Volleyball League (1997-1998) These make me want to watch a VHS tape. Let’s see if the Pro Volleyball League (1992-1997) was any better. Oh! Nice. Eh? Ugh. Oh god. Really? This is high school levels of logo design. How did the principal approve this? Again, wanna watch some VHS tapes? Leaves me asking...how does today’s US Pro Volleyball fare? Yes... Yes... I’ll take it... Alright. Guess Blind Bubba blessed this league.

    I see that too! But, there’s a rumor (so we don’t know if it’s true, it’s just speculation). Supposedly the frog is licking a basketball. I know, great tongue. The ball is of the same colors as the league logo. I believe the logo is called the Global Basketball Association. Their colors appear to be lemon yellow, blue Gatorade vomit, and tarnished tin roof. But that’s just a silly rumor. Let’s call it a big gulp!

    Thank you very much, this was legit helpful. And I just had 1 on the front and 50 on the back to demonstrate what it would look like with single and double digits.

    Thanks for the feedback, but I’m not using crayons. I’m using art pens. I do agree it looks uneven, maybe that is because I’m pressing down too hard. And, the number was on the original jerseys from the 70s...moving on, what should I change to make it better? edit: To clarify, are you dissatisfied with the quality of the drawing or the aesthetic of the uniform? Please not that the uniform is based on the actual Komets I i from that time period.

    Let’s just say...however teams looked, that’s where I’m taking inspiration from.
