  1. Ugh. I can tolerate a "retro" look if it's executed well and to full capacity. Neither of which seem to be the case here. BRING BACK GRAY FACEMASKS GODDAMMIT! EDIT: One thing that potentially scares me is how close these are to our current uniforms, which makes me think this might be an actual uniform change, not just a one-off. Usually when Adidas makes a one-off alt it is a massive departure from the team's regular look.
  2. You will never, ever convince me that these are in any way better than their current road sets. The collar looks like a damn strip of bacon.
  3. Ohio State has had sublimated buckeyes on their numbers for the spring game, however, they were just they leaves and not the circle surrounding them. The designer who made this graphic said that as far as he's aware, the actual jerseys don't have them. So I'd say they're 'shopped in.
  4. The jersey and pants are from their "Aggie Chrome" bull :censored: from a couple years back, and the helmet is from last year's throwback uniforms (which were actually quite well done). I don't know why in the hell that player is pairing the two.
  5. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the jerseys pictured mock-ups created by someone unaffiliated w/ the team? I imagine the black uniforms will change more than just the color of the jersey fabric.
  6. Toledo with the new Nike uniforms. Where to begin? Generic, templated striping pattern, "word stripe" on pants, GFGS, and they retained their horrendous gradient helmet. Their previous uniforms were nothing too special, but they looked respectable, not like some low-level FCS team. Previous uniforms (Under Armour) for comparison:
  7. New UCLA uniforms dropping on the 15th. They've removed black from their scheme apparently, and they cut off the tail on their script UCLA logo. Will it still work on a helmet without the tail? Branding summary:
  8. When I saw this i kept wondering if a team could have a translucent outer shell and then a colored inner shell centimeters lower to make an "offset" effect. I feel like that would be pretty cool.
  9. First I've seen of this. They guy who wrote the article cites very vague sources, and doesn't have any quotes, so i'm not sure how accurate this is. But c'mon, Packers? BFBS? EDIT: oh me i forgot what day it was.
  10. oops my bad i'll edit main post to link to this
  11. Link to 2017 thread. We should start transitioning, seeing as the season is officially over.
  12. EDIT: I didn't see the first post. Use this one:
  13. It Detroit is gonna use that logo soon do you think that nike would use such as similar look for templated shooting shirts?
  14. Really it's just a lot of experimentation. If i can create stripes/stitching/logos/etc. by changing color/saturation/etc. i'll try that first. if that move is unsuccessful (or if i pre-determine i can't create the desired pattern by hand), then i will resort to finding images of players in similar poses and copy/paste whatever elements i need off of that picture. when i'm creating them by hand, I usually select the area i want to edit, make a copy of it, edit the copy, and then see what layer mode makes it look best. (I use GIMP, free software that is actually pretty dang solid. idk about Ps, but in GIMP each layer has a "mode" the relates it to the layer underneath it. For example, the "Grain Merge" mode is often useful on lighter-colored jerseys, because it basically takes the color of the layer you're using and adds the texture of the layer underneath it. this is good for creating stripes on a textured jersey.) Honestly, i just recommend a lot of experimentation and doing concepts like this one. You'll learn a lot by necessity, and much of it you can google how to do until you get used to it. Heck, I'm still learning techniques as i go! My shading, luminosity masking, and coloration are far from perfect right now.
  15. Oh yeah. I'll get on that. Also might change the yello to more of a gold. Looks a little too greenish. Here you go. Sorry for the delay. 49er Mitch Turbisky up next.
  16. The stripes kinda translated weirdly onto the mach speed template but it looks o.k.
  17. Here's a Deshaun Watson as a 9er that i'd made earlier to hold you over until I get there. Dalvin Cook should be done today.
  18. I've been seeing a lot of mock drafts recently and i thought I'd try my hand at putting projected draft picks in NFL uniforms. The players don't have to be declared yet, either. I'll take requests if you guys have any, I'm bored. Deshone Kizer - Cleveland Browns The Browns need a good quarterback, and Kizer is a good passer with solid mobility and play making ability.
  19. I don't know who the actual manufacturer is, all I know is that it has the Riddell wordmark right below the collar on the back.
  20. My high school (Bellevue East- in Bellevue, Nebraska) has been experimenting with lots of trendy stuff over the past few years. Here's our home set from last season: Our mascot is the chieftains, thus the headdress-inspired (i guess..?) feathers on the shoulders and the FSU old spear on the helmet. This year, our school got a sponsorship deal with Adidas, so we got new home uniforms (we get new road unis next season, along with grey alternates). Here were our uniforms from this season: Metallic numbers with generic Adidas "speed stripe" on the shoulders, trendyyyy. The matte black helmets were retained from the previous year, and the purple facemasks were replaced with metallic silver. A "BE" on one side and a number on the other (did i say they were trendy?) replace the spears from last year. Here are the two variations of road sets, one with black pants and one with purple pants: bonus: I'm number 7 the last pic. BOSS
  21. i don't even mind the design that much (minus the "shiny numbers") but the jersey as a while looks incredibly poorly made and looks like something a pop warner team would wear.
  22. were live!!
  23. I noticed that too (and it's on Chris Weber, I believe). The only pic on Getty Images of him isn't very clear. It might be a small camera or something? He was the only guy on the team wearing it.
