  1. While I quite like your new basketball, I'm not sure why you got rid of the windows. They're a cool nod to New York's buildings.
  2. While yeah, personally I agree "The Land" isn't the greatest thing to be putting on a jersey, it does work as a City Edition wordmark. I was going to later mess around with other wordmarks though, I just wanted to get the concept out. The yellow is a much better option in my eyes, and its actually a team colour unlike grey. As for the "Cleveland" and "Cavaliers" on the shorts stripes, my original intention was to keep them there, but I kinda forgot to add them on in my kinda rush to get these out. I'm not sure if it would look better with or without them tbh.
  3. I'm finally finished the Cavs concept! As a Cavs fan, I've always loved the yellow alternates that we had during the adidas era. I'm not a huge fan of the grey City uniforms, but they are okay. I've warmed to the "The Land" wordmark enough for it to stay with the rest of the City uniforms elements. All this really is, is a recolour of their current city jerseys, with less colours.
  4. Thanks! Making concepts allows us to do things that may not actually be possible. I do recall reading something about that, which is why the original Adidas ones didn't feature it iirc. I agree, the colour combo is one of my favourites, and would really inject the Nets with some colour. Black and White, whilst quite clean looking, gets stale after a while.
  5. After procrastinating on fixing the jerseys once more, and making a different idea, here's 3 more versions of the concept: This is just a fix of the kerning between the L and Y once again, so nothing too drastic here. These two are my take on the Dodgers baseball jersey style. A version of the Dodgers "Brooklyn" Script replaces the regular wordmark, with the current Dodgers number font, which correct me if I'm wrong is similar, if not the same as what was used whilst they were in Brooklyn. The B in the Diamond logo (a 1910's Dodgers logo slightly recoloured) replaces the full Brooklyn New York Roundel on the waistband. Brooklyn Script is from here, and the Diamond B logo is[url=https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Brooklyn_Dodgers_1910-1913_logo.png]here[/url], though it seems it may actually be from the mothership. I made both a grey and blue version just for comparisons sake. The Cavs jersey is coming, but numbers are proving to be annoying, as I don't have a font to help with that. Copies off images haven't quite been the quality I'd like...
  6. With the cursive wordmark and block numbers? Keep the ABA Nets trim? I'd definitely do something based on the blue or grey ones here, mainly because I'm not a huge fan of the whole red numbers thing: Likely with grey instead of white (I love the blue on grey look). Fair enough, I did think it was still a little far away.
  7. I typed a downloaded font into Inkscape and converted that to a png. I have two Nets fonts, so I'll try both, see if it makes any difference. If not I'll just manually adjust it.
  8. Ah yeah I'm not sure why that has done that actually. I'll fix that a bit later.
  9. Hi all! Aside from keeping my fictional sport HoopBall running and interesting, I do occasionally have some ideas for other concepts, and this is where I will show them. I recently came across RG3's Nike NBA Template, and decided to make a concept that the Nets/Nike could use as a City alternate. I remember reading here that one set of jerseys would change each season, so why not pick up something that has already been done and looked great IMO. I personally loved the Nets "Brooklyn Blue" Dodgers alternates during the Adidas era, and considering that both the Nets alts this season are black/grey, the colourway deserves to make a comeback to break up all the dark colours. The colourway makes sense as a City alt, considering the original jerseys were meant as a homage to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Along with the colours, I used a monochrome ABA Nets style side striping. The Nets use a version of it on their Statement set currently, so this concept would fit well alongside. The rest of it speaks for itself really. C&C is welcomed. Up next there's a tweak I'd like to make to the Cavs' City jersey, whenever I get to it.
  10. I just figured it out, any layer that's put on the shorts needs to be turned into a clipping mask, otherwise it doesn't stay within the borders of the shorts.
  11. I've downloaded your template, and after fiddling around with it for a bit, I've figured out how to use it. Its pretty easy to use once figured out, and it looks good. How did you manage to get a different background to work? The transparent layers behind the shorts is the reason I can't get it to work.
  12. That's excellent. Hypebeast/10
  13. That works really quite well and would sell like crazy considering how hypebeast culture connects with sports. I don't think I've seen the white border around the logo that often if ever. A white and black one would probably finish out the "collection" well too. If you want pure excess then you need to do one with the Louis Vutton x Supreme pattern (I see it everywhere in NBA 2K18 Park, even here in Australia). Louis Vutton x Supreme x Adidas x DT Concepts has a nice ring to it...
