  1. Is the MLB season going to go ahead, just without fans? I haven't heard anything about that yet that I know of.
  2. I agree with you, but the rate at which all of this has happened is mind-boggling.
  3. I just can't believe any of this is really happening. First the NBA suspends it's season, then NHL does the same, and then to top it all off March Madness gets canceled! I never would've believed something like that would happen in a million years. Will this madness ever end?
  4. Just thought I'd post for the first time in nine months to say that yes, this project is over. Just like the Midwest Hockey League, it was over before it even got off the ground. It seems that I'm just not good at this graphic design thing. I was hoping that I'd be able to improve my skills this way, but that didn't happen. Like I posted back in March, I'm no @SFGiants58 and I've never claimed to be. Perhaps I really do need to take a college course on graphic design before even thinking about posting again. My apologies for the negativity, I just wanted to post this to let people know what happened.
  5. With the recent responses. I'd like to show what I have so far for the template: Yep, that's it. Just the shorts. By the way, those are the shorter length ones used in basketball all the way until at least the 1990s when the longer length ones came about. I'd like to make the template switchable from the shorter shorts to the longer ones but I cannot figure out how to do that, nor how to add color to the different sections. Those are easily done in Photoshop, but not in Illustrator. As for the jersey part, try as I might, I cannot get the proportions to my liking. I really should have envisioned this considering my inexperience with graphic design. It's beginning to look more and more like I'll have to end this project before it actually gets off the ground like the last project I tried to do. Perhaps what I really need is to take a college course on graphic design, but I really don't want to have it come to that. I'm no SFGiants58 and I've never claimed to be. I guess we'll see what happens.
  6. Actually, @AidenT0605 did not make that request, I did. Secondly, I meant MSU and not U of M as shown above. MSU has won two NCAA Basketball titles. After looking at a few more examples, I'd also like to have included however many pennants the Tigers and the Red Sox won in addition to their World Series championships. Those are the two changes I can think of.
  7. Turns out it didn't take me that long to learn Illustrator after all. I was able to find a course on Udemy for a reasonable price and away I went. Now, allow me to present the first ever graphic I've ever made with Illustrator. Naturally it is the Cannons' logo: The logo resembles the team's namesake with a purple wheel and a silver gray barrel. The city name appears in white at the top of the wheel. Let me tell you, this was soooo much easier to make in Illustrator than in Photoshop. I think I just might use Illustrator to make graphics going forward. This brings me to my last point. I've decided to make my own brand new basketball jersey template for this thread using Illustrator. This might also take some time, but I think it'll be worth the wait. As always, any and all C&C about anything I've posted so far is encouraged and appreciated.
  8. These are awesome. If I may, I'd like one with: Detroit Pistons Championships Detroit Tigers World Series Championships Detroit Red Wings Stanley Cups Boston Bruins Stanley Cups Boston Red Sox World Series Championships Michigan State Basketball Championships (if any) Thanks!
  9. I know. The striping on the sleeves and neck will be the fanciest teams will get until at least the 50s. Boston, New York, and Philadelphia have them because they are major market teams owned by wealthy businessmen and so they can afford it. Providence and Albany don't have any because being in minor markets, they are more strapped for cash. Pittsburgh, being mid-market, only has the neck striping. That's my thinking anyway.
  10. I'm back everyone (at least for this update anyway). As often happens I got distracted by other things and this project fell by the wayside. However I have not forgotten about this project. I've decided to switch to using Illustrator to make the logos for this project, since that appears to be the standard on these forums. I was previously making the logos in Photoshop simply because I'm familiar with it. Going forward, the problem is that I have no experience with Illustrator in the slightest, so I'll need to learn the program which could take a while. In the meantime, I've created the Philadelphia Cannons uniform: The name indirectly references the city's role in the nation's wars, most notably the Civil War. The purple and silver color scheme was chosen because the team's owner, Alan Chester, is the CEO of a chain of gas stations located throughout eastern PA which uses that color scheme. That's it for now. If anybody has any advice on learning Illustrator to give me, that would be awesome. As always, any and all C&C about anything I've posted so far is encouraged and appreciated.
  11. Sorry about the long wait everyone, I haven't abandoned this project. The good news is that I've decided on a name for the Philadelphia team: the Cannons. The bad news is that I'm at a loss as to which color scheme to go with. I was thinking of going with blue and gold like the real life Philadelphia Warriors but that would remind people too much of that team. The color scheme has to be unique to the other five teams currently in the league. I will consider any and all suggestions. As always, any and all C&C about anything I've posted so far is encouraged and appreciated.
  12. Here is the fifth inaugural team in the CBL, the Albany Tomahawks! Unlike the other teams in the CBL, the team's name isn't meant to reference anything in particular, however it could reference the Native American heritage of the Albany area. The logo is a T meant to somewhat resemble a tomahawk. The city name appears in arched form to match the curvature of the axe head: Being the second minor market team in the league (the other being Providence), the uniform features no striping or numbers but only has the city name on the front: The last inaugural team will be based in Philadelphia, but I can't for the life of me come up with a team name as the colonial motif has already been taken up by the Boston team. Do any of you have any suggestions? As always, any and all C&C about anything I've posted so far is encouraged and appreciated.
  13. I've decided in the end to put the Ironmen in Pittsburgh. While as I mentioned there was a real basketball team in the BAA called the Ironmen, the BAA/NBA does not exist in this universe. Following @BellaSpurs suggestion, the steel bar/I has been made thicker. Other than that and the city name, the logo is unchanged: The uniform is also unchanged apart from the logo change:
  14. Hello everyone, I have a question for you all. After some thought, I don't know if I should keep the Ironmen in Allentown or instead put them in Pittsburgh. The only reason I didn't put them in Pittsburgh is because there was a real Pittsburgh Ironmen basketball team that existed for only one season in the BAA (the precursor to the NBA) in 1946-1947. So what should I do?
  15. Here is the fourth inaugural team in the CBL, the Allentown Ironmen! The team's name references the dominant steel industry in the area. The team adopts a similar color scheme to the Steelers football team, black representing coal and gold representing iron ore, the two primary ingredients needed to produce steel. I'm happy to say that this is my first truly original logo. Even though it's a relatively simple shape, it's a good start I guess. The team logo is the letter I, the first letter of the team name shaped to resemble a steel bar. The city name is written down the middle of the steel bar in gold: The jersey is primarily black, with a gold waistband and gold and white collar striping. An inverted version of the team logo appears on the upper right part of the jersey, making the team the only one to feature the team logo on their jersey rather than the city or team name: As always, any and all C&C about anything I've posted so far is encouraged and appreciated.
