A Few NFL Concepts (Hand Drawn)(Seattle Seahawks posted 6/9)(Carolina rough draft 6/14)

Recommended Posts

My first post on the forums! I've been enjoying this series. Your drawings are amazing.

 

Your take on the Seahawks is really great. The Mariners green looks really pretty on them; much better than the current colors. I appreciate that you kept the number font and brought back the old shoulder stripes.

My only potential suggestions are maybe also have a green pant option for the blue & white jerseys and perhaps bring back the sublimated feather pattern somewhere (maybe put it on the green alternate?)

 

I've also liked your new color schemes for the Chargers and Raiders for their relocations, and the Cardinals alternate.

 

Keep up the good work!

First off, welcome to the forums! I’m honored you’d use your first post on my thread😝

 

As for your suggestions, I had considered green pants in the rough draft stage, but ultimately decided against them. I don’t know why, I guess I just never felt in love with how they looked with any combination, but if it gains popularity, I’ll definitely look it over again. And the feather pattern? It’s a little much too me, so I left it off, though your idea of using it on the alternate only might be a happy medium. 

 

And a little more info on the series as a whole, I have quite a few teams with rough sketches in the works, just waiting on time to get them all shiny and pretty for y’all, but I’ve been struggling with one particular team: the Carolina Panthers. They were one of the teams suggested to me a while back so I feel bad for having absolutely no clue what to do with them, but it’s the truth. I’ve got nothing for them. At all. So if anybody has something to get my brain kickstarted, I would greatly appreciate you.

So I’m still in need of help on the Panthers, so I decided I’d show what I have so far:

So as you can see, there are 4 helmet color ideas, 6 jersey style ideas, and a couple pants. On the 3 right side jerseys, I based the stripes on the current shoulders with points based on the pant stripes in 3 slightly different styles. The 3 jerseys on the left are the bigger changes. They have a sleeve cap colored and a single over the shoulder stripe above it. Altered the coloring on the 3 sketches, the bottom being a design without silver, though silver could be incorporated if I worked it out further. Two of the pants are just an inverted stripe coloring of the current, and one is semi-based on the shoulder cap set of jerseys. 

 

So is there anything to go off of? With Carolina being a relatively new team and only having one uniform in their history I’ve been struggling on them, so if any of the rough drafts are a good direction to go or if there’s something you’d like to see that I didn’t think of, let me know

I like where this is going! Carolina had a very fascinating design history imo. I like a lot of the stuff here. For the helmet; they’d all work except for the white unless you plan on involving white more. I’d like to see how blue would work out but black and silver work more, unless you remove silver then you have the same problem as white. For the jerseys I like the alternating color per sleeve cap and stripe, or the top two left. For the pants I’d avoid white because it would be very alone in the design. But I like all the stripe options especially the far right! Can’t wait to see the final product.

 

Edit: you could also try UCLA type stripin but with claw marks that they’ve used in the past? I kinda just thought of it. I don’t know if it would look any good but it’s worth a shot!
