    Illustrator Help

    is there a secret to getting lettering to evenly and neatly diagonal on the front of a jersey, a la NY Rangers? I try it by hand and it never ever looks right.
  3. I hope scorpions win the vote. It has a ton of potential, identity wise, and there aren't enough arachnid-related sports monickers and if Aces does win, it will be a tremendous disappointment, IMO. Before I knew a poll was up, my personal picks would have been scorpions, sidewinders or Mirage. on topic, your logo has a great start and a lot of promise, but still isnt quite there. For lack of a better phrase, it could use some "toughening up" ~UJ

    .ai file storage

    And ALL these suggestion will allow my files to still be pulled up and edited in Illustrator (my main concern obviously)? Thanks guys!!! UniJ

    .ai file storage

    Hi guys, I recently got a laptop for the first time and no longer wish to keep flash drives for fear of breaking them off sticking out of a USB port on the side. Is there a place online that is cheap or free that will allow you to store .ai files? I want the convenience of being able to retrieve my work without constantly plugging and unplugging a flash drive or killing my PC storage space moving everything onto my laptop hard drive. Thanks guys! UniJ

    Cincinnati Stingers WIP

    You may have just hit the nail on the head. Lemme give that a try, I am SO close on this and its, like, one or two teeny tiny adjustments away. Thanks, mamiller99. I knew some other perspectives, no pun intended, would help. UniJ

    Cincinnati Stingers WIP

    I'm revising the sketch, version 3, and some things I noticed from the last version (posted above) are the thorax is entirely too big in relation to the head, especially since it is in the tailing away from the head in terms of perspective. Shrinking that and lowering the position of the wings in relation should go strides to aesthetically more pleasing. Doing that may also eliminate the need for legs, also, since the wing position would cover them.
  10. I started a project for @sohiosportsfreak for his fantasy hockey team here on our boards about two months ago. I have the primary completed and he loved it, so now that I have a tiny bit of free time I wanted to continue on the work I was doing for him. This is the secondary I mocked up, and it's not quite complete, but I am stuck on a few areas and wanted some opinions from you guys. His team will be called the Cincinnati Stingers, in this secondary I am trying to capture a hornet in rapid attack flight (it will eventually be bursting through a roundel). The angle in the sketch is a tad extreme, I was just going to adjust in Illustrator in the vectorization process, but it will be on a slight angle to give the notion of movement. Where I am getting hung up on is the wings. In their current stage they look stationary (I will be adding motion lines in the final stages of the project, but even now I think they look static). I am very pleased with the head, but I am losing the antennae in the border of the thorax. I really dont want to have to put a white outline on it if I dont have to. Lastly, while I think the legs, as I have them may be the best way to pull them off in the illustration, I think they will look weak in comparison to the rest of the design. I just need some fresh eyes cuz I have been staring at this thing from all angles for two days straight. thanks guys unij
  11. Yeah I know. Chris emailed me about two hours ago and said he's running behind. I'm positive it will be up before the day is out.
  12. Final product for IceHL's Hawaii Honu. Head over to icethetics.co (no "m") and gimme and/or one of the other submissions some love. Primary: Secondary: Word: Thanks for all the C&C throughout the project! UniJ
  13. As per request, a B&W version. On the version I chose to submit I did remove the shading on the shell. As much as I thought it added dimension to the shell, it did add an unnecessary color to the palette
