  1. Hi everyone, For my latest project, I wanted to do address the overabundance of blue & red teams across Major League Baseball. For inspiration, I figured I'd look at the colors of other local teams to create some regional visual unity, similar to the way that all Pittsburgh teams use black and gold. Note that some teams will be using throwback colors of local teams, such as the first team below. We start today with the Texas Rangers in the San Antonio Spurs' fiesta colors. Thanks to @Victormrey for the suggestion! RANGERS HOME RANGERS ROAD RANGERS HOME ALT 1 RANGERS HOME ALT 2 RANGERS HOME ALT 3 RANGERS ROAD ALT C&C appreciated! Another team will be up soon.
  2. It's been a long time...but in the air of the night, it returns... Since it's been so long since the last edition of C2P, I figure I should explain what's going on for the benefit of our newer members...but linking to the past threads (granted, I often have to use Google instead of the forum search to track down a lot of my older stuff, which may or may not be related to shortening my alias a few years ago, so this isn't the complete list) will do the job just as well The Original (featuring early installment weirdness) 2011 1st Round Rose Bowl FCS 2013-14 Old Faces, New Places Runnin' Horns Wack Quarterbacks 2017 1st Round (even though the image links are apparently broken) Killer D vol. 1 Killer D Legends So first, I kick things off with Harrison Smith...on the ND side, I figured I'd take a look at ancient Irish warriors, and there were a few depictions featuring horned helmets. Not that many, mind you, but enough that I went with it. Admittedly, the pants should be white...but this does have to feel like a Notre Dame uniform, so gold won out. On the Vikes side, the main liberty I took was the ghosted horns. NEXT: Marlon Humphrey
  3. Was looking at NFL logo slicks/style guides earlier, and I came across this. As you can see, underneath the regular uniforms, there is a pair of white pants with one thick purple stripe down the sides. I've seen this in Madden before as well, but I thought it was an EA mistake. However, Gridiron Uniform Database shows that the Vikings have never worn said pants--even in preseason. Has anyone seen or heard about these pants, or know why they exist?
  4. Just a little update to what I think is already a solid uniform set. Following the modern throwback trend and added a slick design element to the stripes of the sleeves, which I envision being some sort of subtle, shiny material that stands out but doesn't take over. Love to hear thoughts!
  5. I've done many "Vintage Style College Mascots" and as the NFL season gets started I was thinking of what their logos/mascots might look like if they had been created in the style of Arthur Evans. I don't plan on directly using any mascot/logo looks (college or NFL) that are already out there (example: using Pistol Pete for the Dallas Cowboys). However, I may take inspiration from bits or pieces of them. Over the next few weeks/months I'll be adding my newest iterations, please let me know what you think with your comments and/or likes. First up: Minnesota Vikings
  6. I finally decided to post my Minnesota Vikings concept that I made in January. The concept is based on the idea that there is a home/away set, color rush, and a throwback alternate. I based the main set on the vikings current uniforms while also implementing the concept drawings by Hubenthal. I used the current Vikings font but without the serifs, added a white facemask, and tweaked the horn logo slightly. For the color rush uniform I decided to base it on the all white uniforms the vikings wore from 1969-1995 with the UCLA stripes. I based the alternate/throwback on the 1965 uniform set, where the numbers are outlined and the stocks dont have stripes.
  7. I am a huge fan of how recognizable and unique the current Minnesota Vikings logo is but after studying design for a few semesters, I've come across some fundamental composition flaws in the viking head. 1. Since this a profile view of the viking, the back horn should not be visible to us. It should be obstructed by the horn closest to us. 2. The shape of the emblem as a whole fights for your attention because it has multiple points pulling you in different directions. This isn't a problem if the directions are equidistant (like a star) or pulling you in a general direction but the helmet, horns, hair, braid, and mustache all bring you somewhere else (as pictured in the diagram below). Now these things seem minor, but they leave the viking head looking very static in space. 3. The mustache looks fine. This is just personal opinion but I think beards look meaner. My goal for this redesign was to create a streamlined, visually appealing, and tougher version of the classic logo that feels like a natural progression into the future. My solution to my issues with the existing logo was to remove the back horn, recompose the curves to all point behind the viking head, and add a beard for a tougher and more modern look. I'm still in the process of refining the logo but I wanted to post it on here to get some feedback before I dive in too far. The beard feels sort of empty compared to the interior of the hair but I'm not sure how to incorporate the same line quality without making it feel too busy.
  8. Finally got some time to mess around with these hockey uniform templates. I thought I'd try doing hockey uniform versions of the 4 final teams in the NFL playoffs. Never did a mash up before so thought I'd try it out. Wanted to see what the thoughts were. It's the Patriots, Jaguars, Vikings and Eagles. I took various parts of the design from elements of the football uniform, IE: Pant shell stripes from pants, socks from socks or sleeve striping and jersey elements influenced by the elements on the football jerseys. Really enjoyed doing these and experimenting a bit. I didn't change/adjust any of the team logos. I just used the versions that the teams use in the NFL. Hopefully this works.
  9. So, I found the original Minnesota Vikings logo used from 1961-1965. I think this one looks better and cleaner than the current one displayed, and was wondering if we could update it. This is not a custom design by myself, it is the original logo designed by Karl Hubenthal in 1961.
