  1. Here's to hoping that Chris Sale takes a pair of scissors to these jerseys too once he's off the Injured List...
  2. These remind me of the concessions staff, but at least the concession staff have a Sox logo on the front (and hot dogs)
  3. "uniform creep" is a great way of putting it Dang, how to spot a fellow Sox fan... I miss Mookie.
  4. I don't know much about soccer design, unfortunately, but I like these and I like your style. The meshing of hand-drawn and the photos are impressive too, and your level of detail earns my respect! Well done
  5. A number of people on this thread are commenting that this uniform is replacing the actual Patriots' Day uniforms -- it seems like that won't be happening. At least for this season. Further, I've seen people commenting that 'at least this isn't as bad as Players Weekend,' but I disagree. Players' Weekend is at least limited to one weekend where it's begrudgingly accepted (at least on my part) that the uniforms are templated and disappointing. I'm not sure how I feel about the Red Sox getting to wear these uniforms whenever over the course of this season. I'm a big Sox fan and I understand the city connection, but this ain't it. I think if 'City Connect' uniforms are going to work, there has to be more connection between the existing traditional looks of the older teams with the efforts to make it more about the city.
  6. I like Dallas! I think the Jazz and Pacers' editions are cooler, because you have more interesting team history to work with, but Dallas does good with what you have to work with. I do think switching the logo on the bottom of the shorts with the one on the center of the shorts could make it scream "Dallas" a bit more. An outline of Texas with the NBA logo in it (ala what you did with the Pacers) would fit more than the star with the logo IMO. Also, I think the Timberwolves, Wizards, or previously mentioned Warriors could offer up some interesting design ideas!
  7. Flavor Three is a home run to me. That home script with the tail is *chef's kiss*
  8. Vaporwave Vice gets my vote as the better option here, but both are great. The colors, fonts, roundel, and that awesome vest jersey are the highlights for the Vaporwave set, while I particularly like the emphasis of blue and the striping in "flavor one". Something seems off to me about the cursive r though in the Vaporwave script tho. It looks distinctly more like the pi symbol than most cursive lowercase r's I've seen and doesn't match the s in the script, which also isn't a classically cursive lowercase s. I think a small fix to the r would make the Vaporwave script perfect. As for the roundel debate with flavor one, I think expanding the text part of the roundel and adding a black outline to the ball itself could help. The area within which the letters lie seems too tight currently. I think the front numbers for the alternating Sunday alts could also benefit from being in black rather than white. Either are definitely an improvement on what they currently have though. Will Flavor 3 be styled after their original look?
  9. I'd echo all of this. This series has been a treat to witness and I've enjoyed seeing your designs develop and improve. I would love to see the league as a whole when it's all said and done. I'd also like to thank you for showing what's possible with Affinity Designer. It's what led me to the program and got me started with my designs.
  10. I love the Dallas Stars x Texas Rangers look. I think the involvement of black and the more metallic shade of gold than the Athletics distinguishes the Texas from Oakland enough. The cream home set helps with that as well. I do think perhaps scrapping the green alt for a gold alt and potentially replacing the script "Rangers" with the old western block could remove any further Athletics-esque comparisons, but as is, I like how they look. Also, the tweaked Astros and Cardinals look great too. While I like the color scheme for Houston, I would say that it doesn't fit my idea of who the Astros are though. I'll always see them in brick red and black, with the tequila sunrise, or sporting the rather drab navy and orange that they do nowadays. That's no fault of your own though, just a personal preference. The balance of red, yellow, and blue for St. Louis is particularly amazing though and while traditionalists would hate it, I would love to see more use of the yellow and royal blue by the real-life Cardinals.
  11. You do make a fair point there, those 2021 all-star jerseys have tiny numbers. Because of that I'll retract my critique since it makes sense given the concept
  12. I love these, you've made great design choices and I appreciate you explaining all the sources of inspiration! My one gripe would be that the number on the front appears a little too small to me.
  13. Thanks! I hear you on the similarity to Philadelphia -- there will be an update to Philly to differentiate the teams a bit more -- though I would say much of the similarity just stems from both teams using pinstripes. As for the FL West, there will be a team, I knowingly skipped that division. I'm deciding on the color scheme for Portland still, so I'll share the two color schemes I'm thinking of when I have some updates for Philadelphia and Jacksonville to share.
  14. *nearly two months later* Long story short, school has been kicking my behind and life has just been crazy, but I've been working on the UBA and Ferris Wheel when I can. Finally, up next: San Francisco Miners The San Francisco Miners entered the UBA in 1984, quickly winning their first championship in 1989 and acquiring the best pitcher in UBA history, SP DeAndre Robinson. However, despite having Robinson’s multi-award winning arm at the forefront of the San Francisco rotation (and all pitching stat categories) from 1986 to 1997, the 1989 championship is the only title to show for it. The Miners have only made the playoffs four times since, most recently in 2013. However, with a second place finish in 2019 with 83 wins and a young homegrown roster, the Miners are well-equipped to chase their second title soon. 2018 Continental League MVP 1B Gustavo Ramirez is just 24-years-old, but he leads the offense and has easily taken over as the face of the franchise. Ramirez bats third and is followed by 27-year-old CF Robby Salazar, who lingered on the free agent market for a while over the past offseason before signing a one-year deal with the Miners to reestablish his value. With a monster season in which he led the CL in WAR, Salazar established himself once more as a top player in the league after years of injuries and should be handsomely rewarded this offseason. So too will 29-year-old LF Tetsukazu Aihara, the CL’s batting title winner for 2019, and 32-year-old SP Pat Cox, the ace of the rotation. Despite those losses, the future is bright, as San Francisco has six Top 100 Prospects, including 18th ranked SP Troy Pritchard, who established himself as a future star with a solid age-23 debut season in 2019. The Miners played around with a yellow and black color scheme upon joining the league in the 1980’s, but quickly adopted a metallic gold and black look in the 1990’s. The one cap features the primary logo of interlocking city initials, a staple since 1984, while the secondary logo seeks to tie two pickaxes into the identity. The Miners were named for the city’s history in relation to the California Gold Rush, hence the emphasis on gold in the identity. The team of DeAndre Robinson has stuck with that look since the 1990’s, adding two alternate uniforms in recent years that have attempted to diversify the look a bit. The unique black alt with pinstripes is worn on select Friday night home games, while the second black alt is worn during roughly a third of San Francisco’s away games. Thanks for viewing! I've been experimenting with some rough jersey swaps for fun, so I included those here, even if they're not perfect (anyone want to buy me Photoshop??). The secondary logo is based off an old Milwaukee Brewers logo, which I was originally using as a framework for my MLB Ferris Wheel Brewers concept, but decided to use here instead. The black and gold pinstriped uni is based off one of Vanderbilt's jerseys. The Miners may get a similarly inspired gold alt in future updates as well, if I decide I want to add another jersey to their rotation. So, what are your thoughts?
