Damn. I wasn’t expecting that...it looks awesome! Sometimes these “mass projects” lack consistency and good artwork, but this is certainly a good start. The color scheme works for a team from Alaska. Nice job.

Thanks. Any input on the logo? Wanna make sure I don't need to do more sketches before I move on to vector tracing.

I was looking at the maps, and you seemed to mix up Knoxville and Chattanooga.

I think ur fine on that count. 'Nooga is further west than Knox.

Anyway, excited to see what you do, specifically with San Bernardino and Knoxville.

I'm a little bummed there aren't any teams from Minnesota besides the Vikings. There are enough people in the twin cities to support another team in a city like St. Paul or Bloomington or you could go north to a city like Duluth.

Agreed.  The Land of 10,000 Lakes always gets skipped (in any semipro concept or reality) just because it already has a team in whatever league.

I wouldnt do Bloomington though because it's basically the Twin Cities. At that point, I think St. Paul would almost be better so that you have one in each. Opposed to one in Minneapolis, and one right outside. St. Cloud, Mankato, Duluth would be cool though, to move it up north! (assuming any major sports teams would travel that far for games!) Loving the Minnesota love

 

First team looks good! Would love to see it vectorized and fleshed out but it's always goo to see a good hand drawn concept. Looking forward to the series

Hmm. Since I have Peoria, I don't technically need Rockford, that could be Mankato. And Duluth only barely missed the list. Actually, I don't think I really need Jefferson City after St Louis and Springfield. I'll update the maps tomorrow.

How about a team in Bemidji?

As much as I would love that, I don't think it's a realistic place to put a team. There aren't enough people in the area for a professional team.

The problem is that I'm going by media market, for the most part anyway. I could see Brainerd, maybe, if I went with an Epsilon League (though I'd be getting into some fairly small markets for that. I could make a map, but honestly it wouldn't be a priority).

"Twisters" doesn't really work for El Paso. No twisters come up through there.

I think Duluth or Rochester would be best for a Minnesota Team.  Bloomington is huge, but it's basically a Mini-Minneapolis.

I decided on Duluth and Eau Claire. Not that Rochester or Mankato wouldn't work, but for the size of the markets vs their proximity to Minneapolis, I just couldn't see two cities in Minnesota.

Bangor, ME represent!  I'd recommend Rangers, Guides or Bruins as suggested names.  I'd consider putting Portland, ME and Manchester, NH in the same league.  They had a healthy rivalry in the AHL and also in Eastern League MiLB.

 

I miss home. :'(

Any excuse to refresh the old Duluth Eskimos identity gets a thumbs up from me.

This is a template I altered awhile ago and still use. It was based on the Nike Pro Combat in 2010, so I'm sure I need to actually make my own by this point.

I'm not sure I'd go with the Duluth Eskimos. I was actually thinking maybe Duluth Pike, since I know There was a Minnesota arena football team with a pike logo. It was very... well, here.

 

latest?cb=20130418154114

That probably won't be the direction I use, but I could see a team in Lake Superior using the Pike identity.
