  1. Kodrinsky, You do amazing work, and it is a lot of fun to look at all the courts you have replicated. I am writing to you because I have been working on an exact replica of the Seattle Center Coliseum court from the early 90's for a coffee table top. It is hard finding decent close up shots of this court. I AM CURIOUS WHERE YOU GOT PICS IN ORDER TO REPLICATE YOUR SEATTLE CENTER COLISEUM COURT? I would like to find more usable pics. So if you know of some please let me know. The court is spot on in so many ways, but I have noticed some variances from your court and the real one. I have spent so much time on this it is ridiculous, so please don't think I am putting down your work. In fact it is quite the opposite. I am writing more out of curiosity and that I respect your work. From the little pics I have found, here are the variances. There is no yellow in between the stylized "S", the green dot at center court and the stylized "C" within the yellow basketball. This is shown on the closeups of George Karl's son as Sonics' ballboy.http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/coby-karl-ballboy-and-son-of-seattle-supersonics-coach-news-photo/81592943 http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/basketball-coby-karl-ballboy-and-son-of-seattle-supersonics-coach-picture-id81353754 The freethrow line does not have yellow going across it. The yellow lines go around 3 sides of the rectangular key, but not where the player puts his toes when he shoots freethrows. That is green.http://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail/news-photo/gary-payton-of-the-seattle-supersonics-drives-to-the-bakset-news-photo/83547124# The curves on the lines of the basketball at center court are different. Seen partially in pics aboves but in various youtube clips. Lines on basketball are sharp, almost cartoonish and curve out to end between the "E" and "U" in Coliseum, not lined up with the "S" in Coliseum as you have it. Also the "R" in Center is different than the rest of the font. I made this same mistake. The "R" is more similiar to the one in this sentence. See pics above. The leg of it kicks out in a 45 degree angle. I hope to one day get this project complete. It has been an on again - off again project for the last few years. I spend hours fine tuning certain aspects then find better pics and have to tweak it. I am also not a tenth as talented as you graphic artistically, but I am a perfectionist, so I work on things until it is just right...even if it takes hours upon hours. I am also very detail oriented. That is why I brought these things to your attention. My hope is that with your talent and the details I brought forth, the court can be correct as possible. I thank you for your time, and look forward to hearing back from you soon. I can also send what I have so far for your opinion on stuff. Keep up the great work.
