  1. Thanks for the C+C guys. Here is the final update of the court, with parallel lines, and no college lines in the keys! Elwood, I'd love to have this in "Milwaukee Bucks Originals" thread! Thank you.
  2. Thanks for the C+C. It seems I accidentally put the "M" over the side-key area, which I have fixed: It's been a blast doing this beast, and I can't wait to finish the rest of NBA: Project 32 (the sequel to MLB: Project 30)!
  3. I didn't think I'd like it, but I do. Nice job!
  4. When considering the commercial posted before, Herb and his helpers must regard them as a joke. That's a shame, as it would be nice to see those uniforms every once in a while (or at least as much as purple-era throwbacks).
  5. Thanks guys. I've decided to utilize the Irish Rainbow in the same matter as the light blue baseline paint on the Mecca Arena court. I've also made a version with a green center circle.
  6. Thanks guys. After looking at Ripon's uniform builder, I determined how to do the Irish Rainbow striping properly, and I toned down the striping on the court. Now, here is the complete revised set (the throwback remains the same)! FINAL EDIT: In this thread, we've seen all the permutations of the Milwaukee Bucks' classic looks. From the traditional look of the championship era to the Irish Rainbow, the Bucks never really had a bad look. After hearing about old Bucks players trying to buy the team from Herb Kohl before the team packs up for Kansas City or Seattle, I thought it was time to show off a new direction the team could take their look that not only pays tribute to the 70's/80's, but also cleans up that look for modern standards (much like the Utah Jazz/Washington Wizards redesigns in recent years). Like my Sonics update, this is a preview for an upcoming concept series, a sense of the general direction in which the series will go (rooting the NBA in between the 70's/80's aesthetic and the zaniness of the 90's to produce an NBA that looks far less homogeneous than it does now). Logo Sheet: The primary and secondary logos are Ren69's gorgeous updates of the original Bango art, the font is from that original logo, and the tertiary/insignia shows off the new Irish Rainbow pattern, which replaces the white stripe with a lime one. Court: Essentially, it's an update of the classic Mecca Arena court, with the angled patterns and the "Milwaukee" markers in the baseline. Of course, Bango is now at the center of the court, and the updated Irish Rainbow pattern has been implanted in the baseline, like the powder blue outline on the Mecca Arena court. Standard Uniforms: Basically, these merge the second Irish Rainbow set with the third one. It uses the script, panel layout, v-neck, and number font of the second set of Irish Raibows, while it has the mixed hem, arm, and collar piping of the third set. The number font is also the proper Sand-Knit varsity font (as still used by the Celtics and Spurs), referencing the team's past with Milwaukee-based Sand-Knit and avoiding the anemic Knicks-style varsity block that the Sixers andJazz adopted (Would it kill them to use outlines?). The color balance has also changed, reflecting more the third Irish Rainbow uniforms and the modern look. The standing Bango has also been added to the shorts. Alternates: The alternates are simple enough. The red alt is an attempt to recreate the current red alt, albeit on the new template and in the old lettering/number font, the green alt is a throwback to this road uniform (with Ren69 providing the shorts logo), and the lime alt is a special occasions alt, like for St. Patrick's Day. Court originally paired with this update: C+C is very much appreciated.
  7. I like it! While block numbers and a block "Cincinnati" script would make it better, it's still really good. I'm really looking forward to what you're doing with the Brewers (I'm assuming the Pilots count towards their history).
  8. Thanks for the C+C. I'm sorry, but I'm keeping the red. I've always liked the green/red color scheme (like the Minnesota Wild), and the double green always felt like a little much (green/purple will be used in my series, but for a mystery team). I've updated the road uniform to better match the color balance of the home uniform (and to shift red towards "accent" status), and I've redone the court to better reflect the primary logo, maintain color balance with the rest of the set, and to add a little more red to the floor, while the Irish Rainbow stays in the baselines (thank you Pepman33 for the idea). Also, I've provided a lime alt, just for fun: C+C is appreciated.
  9. I don't think I've ever seen vinyl used in the place of twill before. Then again, I'm not shocked that it didn't catch on.
  10. I'd use this as an opportunity to ditch the cross of St. Patrick as well, as it makes sense both aesthetically (no cross of St. Andrew to match) and politically (the Red Hand of Ulster better represents Northern Ireland, which consists of most of the Ulster province, and the cross of St. Patrick calls to mind the parts of Ireland now in the Republic of Ireland). It would be better to just go with the Dragon and the Red Hand of Ulster, like this:

  12. Go for option B. Like ScoffingYayap, I'm not a fan of the Reds wearing black/navy blue, but I am curious to see what you'll create.
  13. I love what you've done here. The new "W" took a little getting used to, but once I did I liked it. Not the biggest fan of using Expos number font, but that's just my personal distaste for the font and I can understand why you did it. I'm looking forward to the NL Central (which, going alphabetically, the first one should be the Cubs)!
  14. Black and gold for the Grizzlies would actually work. Black could represent Vancouver/early Memphis, while gold represents the double-blue era. It makes sense historically and aesthetically, and it would mean another double-blue scheme bites the dust. I don't see black/gold becoming the primary scheme (because of a possible, yet highly unlikely Pittsburgh expansion), but it would be nice to see where it would go after an alternate gets released.
  15. Oops. Here's the fix: and a rough Photoshop onto the uniform:
  16. I'd go with Monarchs (because of the uniform company Majestic), and maybe go for a light blue/old gold color scheme to distance the look from the Pirates. I love the crown "P", and I really like the stadium. Nice job.
