  1. Here it is: My Alex Morgan graphic from the first game got corrupted and I never got to finish it. Now that the US has won it all I'm probably going to make one piece with the whole campaign and include it.
  2. Thank you! I really like how the cutouts make the photos pop on the right side of the image Thank you as well! I get what you are saying, and I tried to avoid awkwardly cutting people. On that specific case I think it looked ok, because it's just a bit of the uniform, the badge was not cut in half and there was no part of the face visible, but thanks for the feedback. Thanks! I know it's not actually called an edit but that's a term I see around a lot to refer to this type of image and I've called it that for years. Anyway, I changed the name of this topic to "graphics", it makes more sense. Anyway, did this one today: Marta played for almost a year with no sponsorship so she could play in the World Cup with these boots and celebrate like this, protesting for gender equality and equal pay in the sport. Loved it. I do have plans to make one with Marta and Miroslav Klose since she tied him for joint topscorer in World Cup history with 16. And also a USWNT vs Thailand one focused on Alex Morgan on the same style of my Brazil v Jamaica graphic is on the way.
  3. I always feel like sportmanship is playing normally untill the end no matter the score, wich is what the USWNT did. If they "showed mercy" and stopped trying to score at all, that would be rude an unsportman-like. This is comming from a guy that saw his country lose 7-1 at home at a WC semifinal, and felt it should have been way more.
  4. As a brazilian I think our best hopes of getting out of the group stages was to win by a lot against Jamaica and try to grab one of the best 3rd placed teams spots. Came into the tournament with 9 losses in the last 9 games and no friendlies prior to it, a terrible coach and with out best player being 33 years old and injured to start things out. I'm really liking Netherlands this first half agains New Zealand, they seem like the best team based on the first game so far, even though is still 0-0. France (solid win and dominated the midfield against what seemed like a weak South Korean side), China (even with a loss) and Argentina (with a good defense holding up 0-0 against Japan) are the other highlights so far in my opinion. Expecting a lot from the US later today
  5. This is a bit different as it's not a logo or a uniform concept, but I made this piece after Brazil's first game against Jamaica and plan to do some more with notable games of this World Cup. Would love some c+c ______ I donĀ“t even know if this is the right forum to post this type of stuff, but I've done and seen illustrations here and it's a sport design concept after all. If I'm wrong it's my bad, and mods can tell me
  6. I realy like everything so far, specially Brisbane Rovers and Melbourne. Would love to see that M-V monogram on a jersey
  7. I really like the idea of a individual sport being that dynamic, but for me this concept might work better with on a 2v2 with substitutes and goals on both ends of the court.
  8. Amazing work as always, really apreciate what you do. Cheers
  9. I don't think he does pre-season, although it would be nice to see (NBA global games specially)
  10. Wouldn't mind the white kit this year only as it's a reference to our first Copa America title in 1919. That along with the fact that the yellow kit is heavilly associated with politics this days (but I really don't wanna brig that discussion over here).
  11. As a brazilian, I LOVE the white kit. Nike should have made the home kit white for the whole 2019 season. It's time to move on from a game played in 1950, specially since we had a way worse defeat in 2014.
  12. I actually really like the endzones on this one, the grey shadow looks great contrasting to the green. Great job on the reproductions
  13. As always, solid job so far. Only one I dislike is Scotland's away. At the same time, Netherlands home is amazing
  14. I love what you did with Blackpool. And for some reason I like the word "progress" present instead of the club name, makes it more unique.
  15. Semifinals were played this friday AEK won against San Lorenzo and will play Flamengo who won against the Austin Spurs in the final this sunday.
  16. I do like the base of your template, and have been using an adaptation of it for personal use for quite some time: It does feature similar stuff to what you would like to change (thinner and straighter lines and stuff like that). Maybe it's a good reference point for you as to what some of those changes look like. As for the collar, I normally do my templates with a straight horizontal line where the collar should be and place different ones above it every time I want it changed
  17. Love this series idea and everything you've done so far. State-wise Maine is my favourite uniform you did, the lighthouse and the colors work perfectly. As for your bonspiel, really enjoy this idea and what you did so far, waiting to see more of it. The events logos look super clean and work really well with the identity. Great job
  18. Unnoficialy around this parts we consider the old McDonald's Championship as the same thing, so in a way the NBA teams did participate from 1987 to 1999 (and of course won every one of the 9 editions). Since NBA is a level above and play on a very different set of rules then FIBA basketball, I always tought there should be a friendly between the NBA Champion and the Intercontinental Cup champion, maybe as the preseason opener for NBA teams. But anyway, I like that they invited G-League champs to bring some attention to the cup, but I still miss teams from Asia and Africa, and of course the EuroLeague should come back instead of the Champions League.
  19. So it was announced today that the FIBA Intercontinental Cup (or the Basketball Club World Cup) will now be played on a Final Four format. It will be held this february in Rio de Janeiro: https://austin.gleague.nba.com/news/nba-g-league-champions-austin-spurs-highlight-revamped-four-team-fiba-intercontinental-cup/ The semifinals are set: Flamengo (last brazilian to win the thing) will play the Austin Spurs (G-League champions) and San Lorenzo (Liga de las Americas champions) will play AEK Athens (Champions League winners). Americans probably don't even care about this tournament, but I decided to share anyway. On another note, I really dislike the logo they came um for the competition
  20. Atletico Paranaense from Brazil decided to go full Juventus in their rebrand: Old badge: New one: And it doesn't stop there, they decided to change their kit style too. That's how they used to look: And here is the new style: Feel sorry for their fans, waiting for the biggest game in club history tomorrow and getting hit by this mess today...
  21. Taking my time once again to congratulate you on this amazing project. I'm always coming here to check the updates.
  22. Brazil played the 3rd place match in 2014.
  23. I have this idea for some time and would love some opinions about it: It's an alternate universe type of series about "soccer" in the US. In this universe, "soccer" is the english word for Futsal. The NASL was founded in the early 60's (in real life it was 1968) as a futsal league, with similar rules as the ones we have today. The league would evolve over the years, and the sport would be as popular as today's NBA. It would be cool to test some rules concepts like, for example, a hockey style offside line. Design-wise the uniforms would be more "american" style in the sense of wordmarks over actual badges and stuff like that. Also, courts would evolve in the same sense as basketball courts have, with use of colors and patterns (even ads on the sidelines in the more recent ones). For the teams, I would probably use some of the original NASL and MLS identities, with some tweaks of course. If I end up doing it (I have some stuff sketched out already) I'm not even sure if it would be a "fan fiction" type of series (not really planning on simulating results and stuff like that) or just do the uniforms and teams from each era.
