Alt-History 1960's-70's Soccer as America's Pastime! Logos! Kits! 3D Stadiums! Thrills! (4/12-NYCFC done!)
Commodore Crablegs posted a topic in ConceptsThis retro-alternate universe doohickey deletes baseball and makes soccer America's national pastime. The AFA American Football Association (1884) was a real organization that flamed out in the early 20th century, but not here! Lots of actual baseball history is used to fill up the AFA's back story. Stadiums are gonna be made in 3D with Sketchup and rendered in Visualizer! 201603-AFA-1st-division.jpg There's the setup for the 1st division. Promotion/relegation within the 4 divisions. Clubs and stadiums are inspired by a regions baseball history. Naming of the grounds follows the old British style of using the local area or a main street. Club names are all over the place because this league absorbed two other leagues that had their own naming conventions. The Western teams are mostly based off the real pre-1958 Pacific Coast League. Because there's promotion/relegation this table just represents a moment in time (...more like my to-do list....). 201603-AFA-LOGO.jpg There's the AFA logo wacky tunnelvison process work. First row set was trying to incorporate the American eagle and a 1 (as in 1st Division) into something. The overall idea was trying for a sleek art-deco bald eagle logo, which turned into an epic struggle to avoid anything boy london-ish . Each wing represents the East/West clubs. ..........aaaaand i've just saw theres already an epic concept topic using the AFA name. well. damn. onwards! -------------------------------------------------------- Completed clubs: 3/27 - FCNY 4/12 - NYCFC
