  1. So, there are a lot of issues here for me. Logos are not well-thought (maybe for seventies as the user above told so), and the execution is quite poor. Mostly comes from the lack of a stroke in the white jersey of Pittsburgh, from the discontinuity in the NOBs of Louisville and from this template that I really do not like. The shorts remind me of LEGO, don't know why, The best advice I can provide is: First. Get a nicer template, look around in the forums or draw one from a jersey image like ones we have currently. Second. Take a lot of time in each concept. Haste makes waste. Showing a well-done and careful work not only will improve your skills, but will get you better advice.
  2. Together with the Superliga, a new competition started also for College Basketball. The Older College Basketball Championship of National Academic League, divided into regional groups, was discontinued, and a new format was planned for the following Season, the Élite 12: Élite 12 Logo. Text is in French because French is the Official Language of National Academic League. In the Élite 12, the top twelve basketball programs of the country enter a double round robin. The top four placed after the 22 rounds go to the Final Four, which is always played in a neutral venue. Élite 12 Map. The location of each team is marked with the balls. Soria Metropolitan area colleges are shown in detail. Soria, the capital of the nation, have theoretically four colleges participating. Academia Politechnica (Poli), Universidade de Soria and Universidade Metropolitana play in courts within the communal limits, while Trinity College Campus is based in the neighbouring commune of Linville (was part of Soria Commune when Trinity College was founded). Despina in the southwest, have two colleges, Universidade do Sudoeste and Universidade São Miguel Arcanjo (USMA). Kasandora, in the southern coast, have one, Concordia. Going up north, three of the five colleges are based in Superliga cities: Universidade de Lerna and Universidade de Orissa retain the name of the city, while Portes have its demonym as the name of Universidade Portia. Out of the Superliga, Grandeville has its naval academy on the top of Mt. Grand (Another university victimized by the dismemberment of cities in the 20th century), the Academia Naval de Grandeville. College of Salinas, from the city with the same name, is the 12th team. Logos and Uniforms should be up next.
  3. Not so much, I think. There is a lot of inconsistency. Have a look at the final game between UCONN and Duke.
  4. On its first game ever, São Paulo FC played and won (77-69) against Unifacisa. This court was really hard to make because I didn't have most of logos in vector format, so I had to trace them one by one. Arena Unifacisa (From Thursday, February 14, 2019)
  5. So... I keep as a lurker at this forums for nearly a decade now. I'd be lying if I said it did not influence my life. I came here as a curious, and today I'm a designer working with it. I mean, with the design. Not necessarily with sports logos. One of the guys who has inspired me most recently is Kodrinsky. My witty comments on the beautiful courts that he makes are proof of that. And I've always wanted to kind of try to duplicate the courts, just like he does. But I felt I lacked a theme. Some motivation that would make me start and finish the series. Then it happened: Some of you may know I'm Brazlian , and we love Football (The one using foot and ball all of the time, you may know it as Soccer). Some of us make it a religion, enshrining a team or a club. Usually, this passion overflows football and spills over other sports as well. Below, you can see the crest of my enshrined club, São Paulo FC. Founded 1930, but with roots that can be traced to early days of the football game in Brazil, São Paulo FC is undisputedly one of the greatest teams in the nation, being the number one when it comes to international Competitions. São Paulo FC has three recognized football world championships. Two Intercontinental Cups, 1992 and 1993 and one FIFA Club World Cup, in 2005. It also have three Copa Libertadores titles, six national titles and lots of other championships. São Paulo FC has also formed Adhemar Ferreira da Silva, two times Olympic Champion (Triple Jump, Helsinki 1952 and Melbourne 1956). Long made short, for this year, São Paulo FC formed a team of professional Basketball to play in Liga Ouro, the second division of National Basketball, following the trend started by other clubs like CR Flamengo and CR Vasco da Gama. I was bitten by the bug of Basketball again. And that's where I found the impulse I needed. On this thread, I'll be presenting every court where São Paulo FC Basketball Team will play or have played on this season.
  6. I believe Paris would pair better with New Orleans, based on French Heritage, but Musketeers and Cavaliers are, in fact, a nice association. Not sure about Musketeers having a Katana. Musketeers used muskets, that's the origin of the name. If you're thinking about Dumas' Musketeers, you should try drawing a Rapier instead. Also, The Muskeeteers of the Guard had its own emblems.
  7. Why this nickname to Naples? Does Naples have some relationship with motorsports like Indiana? If thinking about motorsports, maybe Monaco would be a better choice.
  8. Someone please bring a floorcloth. I drool on the quality of your floor textures.
  9. I like this, but the lack of visual unity is bugging me a little. Looks like you're photoshopping over other courts (mainly Kodrinsky ones), as is clearly visible in Sacramento and Orlando ones. My honest suggestion is: Pick up the WNBA court regulations and draw a court template, or at least the floor marks. After that, you should work with the detailing for each court separately.
  10. Timeline in Nationstates is a strange thing. Since every sport has its own periodicity, to fit the international calendar, I'll be not following a proper year sequence here. I'll be following seasons instead of years. It means to say no retro uniforms, at least from now (because the amateur-era past of the teams isn't written yet). Format In the season, teams face every other team in a triple round-robin. The first and third legs are played home and away games, while the second leg, in between, will have matches played in a neutral venue. The top four of each division advance to playoffs. Postseason phases are played in series of five matches and the first team to win 3 matches advances to the following round. This applies to Quarterfinals, Semifinals and International Playoff. The Superliga Finals will be played in a series of seven matches. The table is fixed, so Northern and Southern Division champions can't play in the postseason otherwise than in Finals. Between the Finalists, the team with most a better performance in the regular season plays the matches 1, 3, 5 and 7 at home.

  11. I really can not say why but how have I never seen this topic before? Oh my God, that's wonderful! The care with the details, the logos are wonderful, the uniforms of an unbeatable realism, even the sponsors at the local level. I am completely in love with Olympique Nantais. Please continue the wonderful work!
  12. Not sure if it's only for me, but your image isn't showing. Maybe if you choose another image host, like Imgur. Right-Click and "Open Link" worked for me. But God, how I wish it had not. What a mess you made here. These waves do not match with anything other than themselves. They are not in the pants, they do not match with the stripes on the sleeves or socks. It's asymmetrical, and in this case, I think asymmetrical is very bad. Also, I can't be pleased by the size of the NOB and the number, looks kind of wrong to me. Try to work better a continuity between the shapes, and perhaps lessen the space occupied by the orange in the pants, to start improving a bit.
  13. Vegas without red is the most gorgeous thing I'll see today. Thanks for it. Looks like you have one white pixel around the Oilers logo below and left. When I look to your Jets concept, I feel it too much american, not sure why. San Jose Shoulder Patch is a beauty. I don't like Kings. But that's not a bad thing, since I really don't like kings identity in any moment of the franchise existence. Otherwise than it, you have a very solid work here. Calgary and Saint Louis are pure magic.
  14. Last but not least. And probably you'll hate this as this is a repost, but is the last time, I promise. Basketball Superliga is the last of my big load of work. I posted this nearly one year ago, and I think maybe its time to update some jerseys. I'm not sure if turning to a simpler template, like the one I posted earlier or taking Hoopladawg87's way and developing an ultra-detailed template. While I think (suggestions are welcome), let's have the old stuff reposted: The League Logo League Map Northern Division Teams BC Olympia Lerna Isny Valliant Academica Athletica Portia Myrtilis Basketball Club Associação Atlética Montecorvina Orissa Basketball 1936 Sunion Basketball Club Southern Division Teams AS Virtus 1904 CA Oeste Casterwill Roses (probably the most NBAish team in the League) Libertas Basketball Club Sparta AC Kasandora Azhaar BC Also, 2017 Divisional Champions got courts designed. I want to develop courts for each team for the current season, 2018-19: BC Olympia Lerna Libertas Basketball Lisander is a small nation, its geographic size is like Maine, so that explains only 14 teams.
  15. Since we aren't in Baseball season, I felt the last one wouldn't be very criticized (these ones are very bland, I know.) Let's keep going. Basketball is the following. This concept is one-year-old but I hate how it feels completely outdated. after the new NBA jerseys appeared with a lot of creative juices overflowing... The logo is a ripoff of a French Team Logo. No, I'm not ashamed of it. I'm not a logo maker and this is for a fantasy nation. I'm of course making no profits. Being a fictional nation, I used a fictional apparel manufacturer to cover my incompetence of making a concept looking like 2009 FIBA Jerseys. After I gather some C+C on the current concepts, probably in the first days of 2019, I'll start with the Basketball Superliga posts.
