  1. I was able to create a new pullover-style template today, so here's a team to go with it. The Arizona Diamondbacks have been in a perpetual identity crisis ever since they got rid of the purple, teal, and copper they won the World Series with. The red and sand look they've tried to roll with flopped bad, and the half-baked addition of teal just makes everything look like a mess. A complete overhaul of their colors has been done here. Black, teal, and purple are now the palette of the D-Backs, with an emphasis on the teal. A kachina-style pattern outlines the sleeves, shoulders, pants, and socks to turn Arizona from looking like middle schoolers that just discovered Under Armour to a clean, vivid look that fits the spirit of the Southwest. C&C is greatly appreciated as always. I plan on doing the rest of the NL West, then moving on to the AL West after that.
  2. That's fair, I only used a button-up jersey because it was the only one I had on hand. Before I make any new ones I'll create a pullover jersey template.
  3. I love baseball. I've always loved it. But one thing has always frustrated me about it: the look of it. Baseball uniforms have always been way too conservative for my tastes. We see matchups of grey vs white way, way too often. Who wants to see that?! Sports teams should be colorful! The NBA's new uniform system is an incredible approach to a team's style and has made many teams a fashion statement as well as a powerhouse on the court. Now I want to try and adapt this to baseball. I call it the APEX Approach. Which doesn't really mean anything. That's just my graphic design brand name. I have one rule: no grey uniforms. NO GREY UNIFORMS! I'm going to ruffle some feathers as I work with classic teams like the Yankees and Red Sox, but that's the fun of this project. Concepts where you barely change anything out of tradition are boring and lame. Now, we're starting with the Colorado Rockies. I've had a bone to pick with the Rockies for a long, long time regarding their look. The purple they use is somehow drab and gaudy at the same time. It muddles everything it touches and it's basically useless on a sports jersey. Mountains. Mountains. Mountains. They're on the front, the back, and the arms. The purple is now the main color of the Rockies; it's now brighter and bolder, while black is demoted all the way down to a trim color. A new primary logo, featuring a baseball within the C from Colorado's state flag, is seen on the shoulders and the cap, which now has a mountain on it. Because of course it does. Tacky? Sure, you could say that. Memorable? Absolutely. Feedback is greatly appreciated. If you guys like this idea, I'm definitely down to do more teams.
  4. Does this count? When British American Tobacco purchased the Tyrrell F1 team in 1998, they planned on running two distinct liveries for their two drivers - one in Lucky Strike colors and the other in 555 colors. According to F1 regulations, a team's two cars must share the same livery, so the team literally joined them together in the middle for 1999 before opting to advertise Lucky Strike from 2000 on.
  5. Here's a second version based on your feedback. The home uniforms have been changed to black and both uniforms now sport a new striping pattern I wasn't sure how to include black into the away kit, so I decided to keep the three-color palette.
  6. Hello! I haven't been too active on this board in the last few years, but after a discussion with my friends over sports uniforms I decided to take a dive back into my concepts. My first concept is for a team whose design has always intrigued me (as you may see from my previous attempts at concepts) - the Tampa Bay Lightning. Their Toronto knockoff uniforms have bothered me ever since they were revealed back in the day. With this concept, I've aimed to fix that with an overall tweak on the Lightning's image. One thing I try to incorporate into my Tampa concepts is teal - in my opinion, teams in Florida should have a bright, bold look, which the Lightning have never tried to establish. I've added teal around the new center logo, as trim on the numbers, and as trim on the sweater stripes and lightning bolt on the leg. This concept has a new primary and alternate logo for the Lightning. Their current logo looks imbalanced and bland for a hockey team - I've elected to keep the current lightning bolt, but the surrounding circle has been straightened out and centered behind the lightning bolt. An extra outline around the logo in teal seals it off from the rest of the uniform, so different logos aren't needed for the home and away sweaters. The primary color has been tweaked to become more navy-ish, rather than the intense blue that they've used since their inception. It was pointed out to me that the navy is rather reminiscent of the Jets, but my justification in switching to navy is that it doesn't match the Leafs, who share a division with the Lightning. I would greatly appreciate some feedback on these uniforms - it's fun to break away from my normal medium of stock cars, so if the demand is there I can create more.
  7. Blue Jerseys of Doom! Get them away from Jake, he'll get hurt! Jokes aside, that's a great look. I could definitely see them wearing that if they get in another Stadium Series match.
  8. I think in MLBTS you have a logo creator with basic shapes, a la the Forza games. The red set looks better to me, it seems to be executed better and the uniforms look better overall.
  9. Carolina looks sick, the striping looks like something they'd wear. IMO, Winnipeg should have red somewhere on the jersey other than the logo. Could the silver on the collar go to red?
  10. I adjusted the sets above like you suggested, unfortunately I can't seem to get the dividers into the Canes logo. It's just a limitation I have with GIMP. Now we have Ottawa. I like the black, red and cream they have going on with their throwbacks, so I used that striping pattern and mixed an alternate logo with the spikes from the old "S" logo. The tower also comes back on the shoulders.
  11. Thanks for the suggestions - I'll get started on those shortly. Buffalo seems to be in a persistent identity crisis, and the way I'd solve it is to go straight back to their look from 1987-1996. I made the blue a bit darker and the yellow deeper, plus adding a front number like they have right now.
  12. Time for Arizona. I liked their 90's uniforms so I made the stripes easier on the eyes and eliminated green to make it look cleaner. I'm still uncertain on the shoulder numbers and the use of white over sand, but anything is better than what they use now.
  13. Next up, the Canes. I tweaked their logo a little to make it less 1997-ish and more modern, then looked back on their first set of uniforms and simplified it a little. The squares now turn up on the arms, plus the old 2000's font returns over that thin font they currently use.
