Silent's Sports Signatures - All Sports Championships & "Where I Come From" (WNBA added!)

Recommended Posts

One of the primary things I've worked on while a part of this community is sprucing up people's signatures. I greatly got off track, and while I also have other projects that are still hanging in limbo, I've been getting messages for some time requesting I return to my work with signatures. As I had two threads in the past, I've decided to merge everything into one new thread and get a fresh start, fixing the mistakes I've made in the past, so let's open up shop.

 

Instructions on adding signature images

These are for anyone to use in their signature if they desire. To add them, go to your profile, click the "Edit my profile" button, and then click the tab on the left for "Signature". Use the "Image" button in the editor toolbar (the little polaroid of the tree) to add it. It seems using URL tags will not add the image to your sig, but instead just show the code. Enjoy! ^_^

 

All Sports Championship Signature Images

My original signatures thread, this was based on some images I'd seen in someone else's signature. I decided to make my own version with a more simplistic style, and then to offer my services to anyone who was interested. Here's a sample of my work, my own image from my own signature, which consists of the championships of the Yankees, Mets, Dolphins, Jets, Giants, 'Canes, Black Knights, Rangers, Habs, Bulls, Knicks, Nets, and my very own Yahoo! Fantasy Baseball team.

Just tell me what teams you want to be included and what levels of championships you want to be included. Do you want all world championships? Do you also want divisional or league/conference championships? Do you want bowl wins or scoring trophies? And if the team has existed in multiple cities, let me know which cities you want included? Do you want the Braves' entire existence, or just their time in Milwaukee?

 

Here's a sample of some of the trophies that are available, but I will do anything I can to accommodate everyone. Images of the championship prizes of more obscure leagues are very helpful.

With the change to a new Paint that is a huge step down from the Vista version, I've had trouble working on these and STLgent came in and sort of took over. Unfortunately, he hasn't been around for some time, and I've been getting a lot of requests to resume, so I'm going to do my best to work things out.

 

"Where I Come From"

I've always been intensely interested and had a great love and appreciation for the different cultures in sports, which, of course, includes the logos and uniforms, leading me to this website.

 

One of the things I really loved, which was used for one year and then seems to have completely disappeared from memory and the internet is NCAA Football 2011's ad campaign featuring the slogan "Where I Come From". In the commercial, different people described things where they came from, giving little snippets about their sporting culture. At the moment, I've only found videos of the commercials surviving on a french video site and one extremely low quality video on Youtube.

Big 12 Version: (Loud audio warning.)

I'd often thought of doing the same for other sports. Originally, I made a full list of phrases for the MLB, and tried making signature images to go with them, but my early attempts were rather pitiful. I, however, took another crack at it, and the thread became a rather booming affair that I think inadvertently caused the change that currently causes signature images to be automatically shrunk (some people featured upwards of four or five at one time). >_>;

 

My original versions, especially some of the very first ones I did became a bit of an old shame for me as I consider how much better the quality has grown with my experience. I also rushed to get stuff out, and I remain kind of embarrassed by some phrases I came up with quickly in instances where I couldn't think of anything. So, I decided to take this opportunity to remake everything I've created thus far. Consider it an HD remake. I hope everyone enjoys the new versions. People who already have the original versions can update if they wish, and new people can pick them up if they wish.

 

I also made a few videos to show off my process for anyone who may be interested.

 

Each image consists of five separate images: one of the team's home city, one of their home venue, with the teams logo in the center. The other two are different for each sport. If you'd like anything special, make a request. In the future, I wouldn't mind doing the other sports as well. And yes, they're all positive ones. For some, it was tough finding something positive, but I think I've succeeded. You're welcome to link me to images that you want me to use if you have special requests.

I also wish, especially after hearing about the plight of the Chivas fan from Goat Parade in the face of destruction, to include the team. Unfortunately, you can only hold 10 images per post, so I'll include it below with the CFL teams.
