I like how the Helmets have turned out on these two. I'm split between doing something unique and not losing the NFL "feel" when doing these. The Jeff jerseys especially are very typical traditional pro style.

I like how your Vicis model is looking. The two different jersey styles for mostbof the teams is a good touch too since in the 20's and 30's it was less about uniformity in style and more about standing out from the oponents.

Your templates and renderings are great.  They practically look like photographs of helmets and jerseys.  Nice job.

Thanks. The process I used to make them can be found here:

 

I did have to go back and increase the contrast on the black layers to get a crisper, sharper look.

Two more. The Dodgers is a remake of one I did with the first group. I was never happy with the helmet. https://i.imgur.com/UIaL8c5.jpg

I made a change to the original logo, giving it an upward tilt and making the heavy text ring into a light golden ring. I had done a different home jersey this time around but realized that I like the previous one better. The difference in style helps give the unis some variety (they were beginning to look the same.) I debated more of an illustrated style for the helmet and ring and might experiment with it.

 

I had done a Panhandles Helmet but couldn't come up with a jersey design I liked. The Helmet from before is here: https://i.imgur.com/NleGGHS.png

The design needed to stay away from a Redskins feel, which is a bit hard when using essentially the same colors.

Redid Akron to fix a few things that bugged me (one of which was color)

And then finally got around to Milwaukee.

The helmet worked better without the logo on it. The pattern comes from the hand drawn attempt at recreating the logo.

Duluth was one of those I did before. I've thought about reworking some of the ones I did before in the new template.Or maybe I should do teh new ones in the old template.

Wow that's awesome. I really want a Minnesota team to embrace purple and light blue. We see it in advertising all over the state

I'm giving Kardex a third shot and asking folks which one is best / what do you think?

 

This is the first one. I did it as a "modern update" of a "old timey" logo I drew up. Since the Tonawanda Kardex never had a logo to begin with  one had to be made to build off of.

I put this one together after looking at the logos that the American Kardex had during their history, from American Kardex to Remington Rand to Sperry Rand and then to Unisys and eventually, back to Kardex.

The comments tended to focus on the full name of the team being the "logo" The Bengals had their full name on their helmet way back on what was one of the ugliest helmets ever. My thought was that a corporate team wouldn't miss the opportunity to keep brand identity on pro sports team they owned.

This is my third try. It's based on the app logo for Kardex AG (https://appadvice.com/app/kardex-portal/1391616930)

There's some modification but I would assume there would be.

 

What do you think?
