You did. Accidental double post on my end.

I see what you're saying about the stripes now. I hadn't thought of that, I was just using an old helmet design that I thought was cool.


Well there's that and I saw another thread that had a similar design to that helmet plus it would make their helmet a lot better.

A while back someone on the boards pointed out some of the flaws with the current Panthers logo and ever since then, the wonkey left eye and slightly out of perspective lower jaw/teeth has driven me nuts. So, I have made some tweaks, I think i fixed the perspective issue and made the shape of the left eye more similar to the right one.

The uniforms feature black helmets, which I am picturing with a high gloss finish. The new striping pattern is based on "speed lines", the Panther's whiskers, and the detailing on the wordmark. The pants stripe wraps around the front of the pants onto the knee and the collar striping would be a detail unique to the Panthers in the NFL.  The Panthers' bold electric blue is strong enough, IMO to be used for sleek, modern single-color numbers on the jerseys. The primary home pants remain silver and the primary home pants are now black.

The alternate jersey remains blue and is an inverse of the black jersey. I introduced blue pants into the rotation and thy are shown here with the blue jersey, but wouldn't necessarily be worn with the blue jersey. The Color Rush uniform is the "Black Panther" uniform, paired with all-blue socks to balance out all of the black.

 

Here are some of the uniform combos paired with alternate pant options:

So, please feel free to let me know what you think, I always appreciate any and all feedback. Thanks for taking the time to have a look.

I’m not a big fan of the number font. It just doesn’t really fit the teams identity in my opinion. I also think the logo gets kinda lost in the black helmet. Other than that, I love how the away jersey looks with blue pants.

The white jerseys need an outline on the numbers.

The number font is based on the wordmark, a sans serif italic font. I actually thought it worked really well. What would you have in mind to change it to? The idea behind the black helmet was kinda for it to get "lost". All you see is the highlights of the black fur flashing in the light, or maybe I'm over thinking that.

I want to avoid outlines on the numbers, so here is a white jersey with black numbers and blue pants as the primary.

 

And here it is with black pants:

If you’re going for a more modern look for the team then I completely agree with the number font, other than that I really don’t know what you should change it to. And I like the idea you were going with for the helmet. Everything makes sense now that you’ve explained it, so, thanks!

I think that the black jersey needs an outline. It just kinda blends for me and makes it a little hard to see.

I don't get the point of having the home pants be silver but then not having the color anywhere else in any of the uniforms. It looks like you're trying to de-emphasize silver; perhaps you should just remove it entirely for this concept?

Well I kept the silver pants because the Panthers have always worn silver pants and the teeth/eyes are still silver in the logo, so I kept the silver pants as the primary home pants. To be honest, they don't look good with the blue or white jersey, but I'm still hesitant to get rid of silver entirely.

Huh. Hadn't noticed the remaining silver in the logo.
