Hello, everyone. I'm FC Macbeth. Welcome back to another jersey concept.
First and foremost, let me give you the background of my artwork
Now you may be asking me why do I create a hockey jersey concept on an singer who doesn't exist. Well it's a complicated history.
Every year, March of 9th is considered to be Miku's Day (or the 39th's Giving Day). The reason why it's celebrated in that specific day is due to its word play in Japanese.
Now that I've got out of the way, let's look at the logo set and the jersey itself
The primary logo featured what I like to call it a 'leek-stick'. Which is basically a leek combined with a hockey stick. Normally, this item is related to Miku due to the popularity of Otomania-P's cover of a Finnish folk song called 'Ievan Polka', where she is seen waggling her stick up and down. Meanwhile, the shoulder patch/pant logo is basically '01' in Hurricanes' font. This is a reference to her character design where her right shoulder has the number 1 to reference that she is first voicebank in the Character Vocal series created by Crypton Future Media.
The stripe design of the jersey is inspired both from the Canucks' infamous V jersey from the 80s and the Senators' chest design from their 3rd jersey. I experimented with different shades of teal before landing on the teal and turquoise colour scheme (I believe Miku is linked to the colour teal/turquoise due the colour of her hair and her clothes, I think). I pretty much ended up with a unique colour scheme that wouldn't look out of place for Seattle to use for their future franchise. As for the font. I used the Capitals' font from the Winter Classic jersey back in 2011 (pretty much the same as their debut jersey back in 1974).
The second version is pretty much the same, except that turquoise is replace with black. Personally, this is what would the Sharks roughly look like if they lighten up the teal.
Well, here is my hockey concept. Spent about a few hours just from writing this post.
What do you think about this unusual jersey concept?
C&C is appreciated!
