  1. I have been toying with this concept for a while, and it's finally finished. This will be a bit of a departure from their classic look, but one that still says "Cowboys". I have dropped navy and silver/gray/silver green from the set. This is a dark royal and white only set. The all white is home, the inverse would be worn when Dallas is on the road, and the home team wears white. The bottom look is a new third set. It is an updated version of their debut uni set, not the current color rush set, which was an updated version of the 94 set, which was sort of loosely based on these. Let me know what you think.
  2. That isn't right though... Here's the same films you're referencing, with plumes everywhere. They used it in the 30s and 40s because it was accurate, and the "Pirates" franchise used it, because it's accurate. Depp was a pirate, they were buccaneers. Regardless of whether or not it's intimidating, it's Tampa Bay's; it was totally unique to them. Is Bruce out of date, yes, but the skull flag is a dated look too.
  3. This looks fantastic. I wanted to see what it would look like with different colored plumes, so I took the liberty to do so. The pewter works best for me, especially on a white helmet. I like them all, too bad we will never get to see it on the field.... Nice work @McCarthy. (love that Reds 4th place banner too.)
  4. Tampa Bay has put too much emphasis on "pirate" and not "Buccaneer". Buccaneer carries a different image, and has more flair, more class, and more style. Bruce was the perfect mascot for that. I went way too far down the Buccaneer rabbit hole, but most were on government contracts, so not exactly outlaws. Yeah he needs to be updated, maybe he becomes a skull himself, but this team needs the bright orange, red, something flashy, not just drab cannonball pewter.
  5. I remember reading an article (which I tried desperately to find but couldn't) during the past year where one of the Reds' front office members, I believe a Castellini, said that the Reds were the only team to have a Red/Black/White color scheme. That comment tells me that black is here for the immediate future. For me, black isn't the problem, it does add depth to the set and provide more options (there are at least 162 games...); the problem is the use of black. Either use it or don't. Using it as a drop shadow, or a black brim on the road doesn't count, or a memorial arm band for that matter. If you are going to claim to be a red/black/white team, then do it all the way. Not an easy way to describe this without showing it, so I will show it here, unless it's not permitted in which case please remove. This isn't my favorite concept that I've done for Cincinnati, and I don't know that I love the black, but if black is a team color, this is a more appropriate way to use it. I'm partial to the pre-Sansabelt set myself, maybe they do that and add a pant stripe. Just my 2 cents.
  6. Wouldn't a gray mask work with both sets for Washington? For Dallas, can we get a better look at the chest logo? Nice work!
  7. Here's the latest update....
  8. So here he is with this Legendary facial hair. I worked at the Legends ballpark for several summers so I'm very familiar with Big L.
  9. So more the shape than the thickness? More downward angled than big handlebars?
  10. Here is version 2. Fixed the hat, and added some weight to the handlebars.
  11. I really like how this turned out. It reminds of the that throwback Bears uniform everyone seems to love with the stripes on the shoulder. My question with this one is would they have to change their helmet? Would that be stripe overload???
  12. This might be my favorite description ever! I do think the mustache is one of those things that should be a little more over the top.
  13. This is part that I just couldn't seem to make work the way I wanted. I will move it a little more to the right and see if that's better.
