  1. Thanks for sharing! Love seeing this kind of progress. I agree with jaha in that I'd make the ears a bit smaller, otherwise you've pretty much nailed it. Have you come up with a wordmark to go along with it? Their current primary is hilarious. What is going on with that mouth? My goodness.
  2. It looks like he's about to break out into his dance routine.
  3. Just wanted to say I have a lot of respect for the amount of work you put in to your templates. I always like to check out your work here because your presentation is always amazing. I also recognize the image you used for OBJ as being from the 2015 Pro Bowl photoshoot! It's really 'next-level' that you've basically got 9 templates you're running here, although I'm assuming you've set it up in a way that allows you to swap the jerseys/pants colors of multiple players at once. In todays NFL with many teams having 3 jerseys and 3 pants, it would be pretty cool to see each possible combination here if you're feeling a little wild. Since you've taken it this far, I'm guessing that may have been your original intent here with having 9 players. I know that could initially be extra tedious to make it work but I think it'd be an interesting and unique presentation for your future concepts. I'd set it up as something like this -- - O/B/B - O/B/O - O/B/W - O/W/B - O/W/O - O/W/W - O/O/B - O/O/O - O/O/W Color 1 jersey - 24, 23, 85 Color 1 pants - 24, 80, 29 Color 2 jersey - 80, 13, 58 Color 2 pants - 23, 13, 21 Color 3 jersey - 29, 21, 95 Color 3 pants - 85, 58, 95 If you've got it set this way, then you'd only need to change the 3 base colors you're using to be quickly adjusting the colors of all 9 jersey/pant combinations for different teams. If you want to do a Texans concept, then you can quickly swap color 1 for navy, keep color 2 as white, and make color 3 red, and suddenly you have the base colors set to show all 9 combinations for a completely different team. You could use your same logic to mix in the socks with these color combinations. This template is so well done, but I'd still work on 'grounding' the players a bit more. 58's stance doesn't quite line up with the perspective of the field. Only way I can think of doing that is to "stretch" his leg just a bit to see if you can fix that perspective, although that may end up looking even more off. 29's and 95's cleats being completely visible on the bottom make it seem like they aren't fully grounded to me. I'd also add some shading towards the bottom of their shoes to help blend them in a bit and make the transition less noticeable. You can get an idea of what that might look like here -- For the concept itself, I like the direction of this. I'd continue to play around with the striping and color patterns on the helmet, jersey, pants, and socks a bit more. I feel the helmet definitely needs that white stripe between the two brown stripes. Everything else is negotiable for me, although I'd opt to use those same stripes on the orange pants, while bringing in different colors for the brown pants (orange/white/orange) and white pants (brown/orange/brown). You might try something like this for the sleeves and socks.
  4. While I like the new numbers -- the last number font fits the team's overall identity better. Like you said, it is odd that they only went away from that font on the numbers of the jersey, while it is still being used for basically every other application. Those numbers, with a splash of gold somewhere on the uniform, could have gone a long way to complete the look. It could have provided that extra bit of flair needed to give the uniforms some personality. I'm hoping the positive reaction the Chargers got for making a similar switch will help make that a reality. Plus, now the Jets' have an alternate black jersey that looks strikingly similar to our black jersey. We are a small-market team with a unique brand that hasn't figured out such an obvious and effective way to differentiate ourselves from everyone else, (aside from gimmicky helmets). This problem is almost exacerbated by ownership, because as fans, we actually want the teal to return full-time. We are instead met with this type of marketing-speak that is supposed to somehow quench our thirst for teal.
  5. Not to be that guy, but thank you! I'd shared that picture of Watson with the white helmet somewhere on this board a while back, along with this Oilers' version. I just like the idea of a white helmet, as it could open the door for Oilers throwbacks -- especially with Tennessee again adopting part of Houston's look with their new navy helmet. I agree that a helmet stripe would help complete the look. I've mocked another one here to match the current pant stripe, although I also like your idea of having a little space between the navy and red so that the colors aren't bleeding together as much.
  6. Connecticut Cutters rolls off the tongue nicely, and would have a double meaning with the cut fastball, and the Coast Guard cutters. The U.S. Coast Guard Academy is in New London, Connecticut.
  7. It probably looks better when it’s not embroidered. I think Pitt needs a panther logo to compliment the script logo, so I don’t mind it. Nostalgia aside, this has to be about the best panther logo in Pitt history, but I’m not sure that’s saying much. Using two golds is an interesting way to blend the two eras. It looks they weren’t sure which gold they wanted to use. The ears could stand to be more pronounced. And I’d actually like to see less symmetry like in their old panther logos. A pose more like this would have been more dynamic and interesting to me.
  8. I'll add those shoulder "stripes" look a lot more awkward up close than they did from a distance in the leaked photo. I'm still interested in seeing the back of the uniform and where those stripes go. Do they end abruptly? Do they mirror the front? Or do they actually connect across the nameplate in the back to create a contrasting nameplate?
  9. The black feels forced here. I don't think the number outlines are necessary at all. The inconsistencies of what gets a black outline and what doesn't are a bit perplexing to me. The helmet finish is my favorite part, but the beauty of that green makes the jersey look a bit drab. Hopefully the difference in greens won't be too noticeable on tv.
  10. A good look inside Gotham Hall as they prep for tonight. Love the venue they chose for this.
