I love the extravagant-yet-traditional designs you put on the league III kits, I'd say most of my favorite concepts are League III! Glad to see I could help sponsor-wise.

Umbro kits always look great, this one included. The sponsor logo on Midpoint looks suggestive however.

I agree with Daryl, I see nothing wrong with it... Could you explain why it is suggestive?

a few minutes on Google and I still have no clue either. Even with my dirty mind, I'm not quite sure I can connect Cupcakes and Pizza. Maybe Cupcakes are round and Pizza is triangular when its cut? If so, than that's really digging for an excuse. The only other stretch I got is that the clash kit appears as though its the .. ehm... feminine region... I'm not gonna push it here...

thats amazing! i love the history behind the logo/uniforms.

Thank you, sir! It's always pretty fun adding historical aspects to my concepts!

I love that weaving pattern of the St David flag on the homes, I also like the the clash has vastly different colours

It was originally pretty hard to come up with that weaving pattern at first, but it ended up going pretty well. Glad you liked it, along with the clash!

Minor league teams (in this case those in League III) are notable for being more extravagant that you average team, that's for sure! And the name suggestions sure are really helpful!

Here's my theory about it possibly being suggestive: the lowercase "c" and "p" kinda resemble a stick drawing of a certain male body part. That's all I've got...

League II

Garrison Sporting

Garrison, Coastania

Founded: 1952

Last Promoted: 2010

Last Relegated: 2008

Championships: 0

16553532837_5c08c35c06_c.jpg

Garrison Sporting's colors are inspired by the San Jose Earthquakes the naval ensign of Los Altos, which has the colors of red and blue in addition to having the Alton flag in the upper left corner. As for the crest itself, it's based off a military medal (Garrison is known for the huge military presence in the area) with a stylized red galuken (pronounced like Gaul-ken), the Alton national bird, on top of a blue "G", with a black border. (The crest is a bit crooked on the actual paper itself)

The home jersey is a very simple jersey that is predominantly red and white, with a few hints of black. The clash jersey is a bit more colorful, with all the team's colors in a single jersey. The kits are supplied by Adidas and the sponsor is Clipper Logistics, a shipping company based out of the Garrison area.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Before I close this post, I'd like to ask you all a little something: is there any design motifs you'd like to see me do for future teams? I certainly have a lot of flag and tree designs planned, but those kinda get repetitive fairly quick, so I'll gladly take any idea y'all might have and I'll be sure to give the credit when the concept's all and done.

Thanks in advance!

I have caught another bug so I have not been able to use my iPad all day. You really succeeded on the black kit this time around, and I really like the color scheme! As for motifs, I really enjoy the nautical kits you have made so far, so more of those would be fine. Made some geometric motifs? (A Kit based on circles or squares). For Gallinne teams you have the wheat and steel industry to base them off of, if that helps. For which ever team you plan to use Abelard as a sponsor, an automobile theme would definitely fit.

These are excellent. I am not a huge soccer fan, I only really pay attention during the World Cup, so my knowledge of the sport (and conversely, my exposure to the uniforms worn by everyone) is limited. That being said, I have yet to see a concept here I have disliked. To me, everything looks like it belongs, nothing looks forced or out of place, which I find especially impressive given the size of the actual drawings. Your work here is fundamentally sound, and very thorough. Very professional looking. Keep up the good work.

Glad you liked the Garrison concept!

Nautical kits would be somewhat easy for me, as influences are everywhere considering I live pretty close (about 20 miles or so) from the ocean. Geometric motifs are quite possible (including this next one). Industry would certainly be in mind for the Gallinne teams. As for Abelard, I'm saving that for an auto theme in an industrial city in the east, so stay tuned for that!

Honestly, I'm not that much of a soccer fan, either. However, I am indeed quite a fan of the sports aesthetics in seen in soccer.

As for my works themselves, I make sure that it complies with the high standards I set for myself, including making sure the concept looks unique but also bearable to look at. Also, I personally work better with smaller drawings, as large drawings would be way too much for me. I'm very glad you like them all, though; really appreciate it, sir! :)

League II

Entrada Real

Entrada, Coastania

Founded: 1915

Last Promoted: 1996

Last Relegated: 2004

16582667817_14f21c902f_c.jpg

Historically, the City (and County) of Entrada was the bustling capital of Los Altos during its Spanish colonial years. Because of its location on the entrance to the Rio Oro, Entrada was (and still is) a major military installment during its Spanish as well as modern Alton times, with a major military base located directly west of the city. The crest reflects both aspects of Entrada with a crest shaped like the many Spanish forts built along the river, while the colors yellow and red are a nod to the city's Spanish heritage.

The home jersey uses the crest's Spanish-inspired colors in a bright jersey. On the other hand, the clash jerseys are in the color of the Spanish forts. Both jerseys feature Nike sweatbacks: this idea was inspired by raysox's FC Birmingham concept. The kits are supplied by Nike and the sponsor is the local Barr'awe Native Casino (in Los Altos, the native inhabitants are simply [and politically correct] called "natives").

-------------------------------------------------------------

I'd certainly still appreciate some ideas for future design motifs!

I don't know if it would work but I think a jersey with Croatian-style checkers would be great... Like Lomaie's home kit but with two completely different colors. You could also do a rainbow gradient for another wacky League III team's crest and kits

I'm really digging the Entrada home kit!

I was about to ask why you always post things at Midnight... Then I remembered you live on the complete opposite side of the country

Those are my new favorite! Love the color scheme ( Go Cyclones!!) and the logo is a thing of beauty! Quick question: when is Shelton Architecture going to be on a uniform? (Not trying to be demanding or anything just wondering)

I could probably try those suggestions there, they seem pretty cool! Thank you!

Glad you liked Entrada, too!

And that's indeed true, I am in Pacific Time, after all! Haha...

so are you not going to be doing fields like you did with baseball and basketball

Well, for the most part soccer fields are pretty much all the same. But it would be cool to see what he could do with stadiums,

Soccer stadiums won't be a huge priority in this series at all, but I might, might, decide to make a few sometime. It might turn out to be pretty interesting, actually. But don't count on it too much, though...

Glad you liked it, sir! I really liked this logo as well, and it actually was my first logo sketched, originally as a Los Altos SC crest, though. (I didn't know that you were talking about Iowa State until I looked it up on Google.)

And Shelton Architecture I'm saving for a Shelton, Nare team. Got any suggestions for that team identity and the sponsor logo, perhaps? I'd be happy to incorporate any suggestions for it!

Lake Collack United

Ralph, Lakent

Lake Collack United is the main soccer team in the Ralph Lake Area, in the heart of the state of Lakent. The crest incorporates a "LCU" monogram inside a traditional native shield from the area, with native artwork (of pine trees on the side and the waters of the lake on the top) on the light gray border. I felt that I needed a green and navy blue team in my league, and light gray went well with those colors.

The home kits incorporate the native pine tree pattern different from that of the Lomaie clash kits, but with a gray main part, green sleeves, and navy blue colors. The clash is an all-navy blue set, with the white "wave" (and with smaller, sublimated waves inside of it) representing the waters of Lake Collack. This craziness is brought to you by Warrior and the sponsor is the locally-based supermarket Carlsen's.

Lake Collack looks good! However at first the home jersey looked like a baseball uniform to me. As for Shelton Architecture, maybe a cool grey color for the uniforms with some navy or light blue accents? I will DM you the logo for SA so you can get a feel for it.

Thanks, sir! I bet it's the gray on the home jersey that makes it seem like a baseball jersey...

I'd surely like to see the Shelton Architecture logo! However, Shelton is a city in the desert state of Nare, so I'm not entirely sure about the colors. Thanks for the suggestions, though!

Claraville SC

Claraville, Bayshore

Founded: 1934

Last Promoted: 2004

Last Relegated: 2007

Championships: 0

16643747687_4024b6d069_c.jpg

The crest of Claraville SC (admittedly pretty similar to that of Windport SC) incorporates the famous Frontier Tower, built in the old part of Claraville to signify the spread of English settlers upon the first settlement of the Bayshore colony, with Claraville being on the opposite side of the peninsula as Henderson. The color red comes from the brick of the tower while the beige also comes from the tower's design; the light blue represents the sky.

The home jersey can be thought of as a throwback, city pride jersey, with the Claraville city skyline prominently displayed on a light blue background. However, the clash jersey has no real meaning whatsoever, as it just incorporates yellow with a gradient pattern on the front. The random curved line on the front actually represents Claraville's location on the Bayshore peninsula, with the crest being "northwest" of this location. The kits are supplied by Adidas and the sponsor is KW Productions, a local studio recording company.

Midvalley United

The vast river valley that stretches through central York is home to a very sophisticated high tech industry. This team identity embodies that industry, with a microchip (in the shape of an SD card) that has "MVU" in gold, stylized like the (actually very, very complicated) designs seen on an actual microchip.

The home jersey shows one part of the microchip, its "subway map" patterns using a green blue-and-gold color scheme. The clash jersey incorporates the zia of the New Mexico flag line patterns radiating from a microchip, with a green and gold (Happy St. Patrick's Day, by the way!) color scheme. The kits are supplied by Adidas and the sponsor is the Alton tech giant Yorkentech.

Everything about Claraville SC is absolutely beautiful... Midvalley looks extremely complicated and difficult to draw but you pulled it off. These are two more excellent concepts, great job Daryl!

Glad you liked both teams!

For Midvalley, I was really stumped at how to pull off the microchip design; I looked up pictures of microchip patterns on Google and I was sorta intimidated by the complexity of such designs. However, I did manage to simplify the complex designs to put it on the Midvalley jerseys.

Both sets are just great. I love the microchip design on the uniform for Midvalley, although I am wondering why you didn't go with the blue for the set instead of the greenish-blue. Still, looks great!

Thank you, sir!

Glad you liked the microchip designs on the Midvalley uniforms! Originally, I wanted to use blue, as it resembled some of the SD cards I use for my camera, but then I realized that the greenish-blue more realistically resembles the color of a common microchip.

City SC of Rattick

Augard, Coastania

Founded: 1928

Last Promoted: 2003

Championships: 1

16868524962_81b78bf573_c.jpg

Historically, Rattick City was the heart of the rebellions that led to the Alton Civil War of the 1760s. The team, along with the baseball Rebels and the basketball Radicals, embodies this rebellious culture of the city into the AFS. The colors are mahogany, to represent the violence of the past, and slate and black, to represent security. The crest's shape is taken from the Rattick City seal, with a mahogany drop shadow. A sword and a laurel wreath, to symbolize violence and peace, is at the bottom of the crest, with the team motto "Nos pugna, stamus" ("We fight, we stand") there as well.

The home jersey uses mahogany stripes to show the changing shapes of the team crest, curved at the top becoming pointed as it goes down. The clash jersey puts this striping motif into a single red stripe on a slate jersey. The kits are supplied by Nike and the sponsor is the tourism site for the island nation of Nedaj, on the Belmic Ocean west of Los Altos.

Coming up next, St. Catherine SC!

You have officially blown my mind with this one. Everything about it is perfect! I love the color scheme and the uniforms are spectacular!

I was originally gonna do a red-and-yellow color scheme for Rattick, but that seemed to be too Spanish for this former British colony. So I went instead with red-and-gray. Glad you liked Rattick!

St. Catherine, Magainy

STCSC is one of three (two in League I) AFS teams in the St. Catherine area, with STCSC being the premier soccer club in the city. The crest is a very simple roundel logo, with a light blue "STC" monogram inside.

The set for STCSC is one of my personal favorites so far, with a very nice, crisp set. The home jersey is predominantly light blue, with a black-and-white checkerboard patter in the middle, above the sponsor name. The same is for the clash jersey, except with black replacing what was light blue on the home jersey and vice versa. The kits are supplied by Puma and the sponsor is Standard Bank.

EDIT (3/24): Replaced the clash kit's white shorts with light blue shorts, as suggested by 1clkgtramg.

This team was designed with my A's fan friend in mind, starting with the jade green-and-harvest gold color scheme. The crest is a very simple, in my opinion German style, monogram logo, with a "P" inside a circle.

The sets are inspired by the two patterns my friend suggested to me. The "vines" on the home kit represents two things: the large biology laboratory in the area and the many crops that flourish in the fertile soils of Magainy. The clash kit symbolizes the rolling hills in the area. The kits are supplied by Under Armour and the sponsor is the ice cream company Zohlgard (my friend's a huge Eric Sogard fan. Haha...)
