What if various colleges got a big donation and started up Varsity hockey? [1/10 IOWA STATE ADDED]

Recommended Posts

So, after hearing about Arizona State getting varsity hockey, I was wondering what if other colleges got a hockey team out of the blue?

I started with Iowa State, a team picked at random out of the college page, C&C appreciated... http://i.imgur.com/fv2DkeC.jpg

This is very rough. Do you use paint? If so you should go check out LEWJ and see how he does his paint concepts. As a paint user myself I have found many ways of utilizing what I have. Try using the curved line and straight line tools and zoom in to make sure every pixel looks good. You can also check out paint.net to help you too (it is very useful). Also take your time to make your work as clean as it can be, if you make something in a couple minutes it probably isn't worth posting because you won't get any positive c&c. I hope this helped you some !

You need to use the line tool, I can tell every time your hand shook when you try drawing a line.

I'm sorry to say, but I'm using an MS Paint like app on my iPad, called ArtStudio. Unfortunately, It doesn't have a line tool. So I'll try my best to make straight lines.

Here's what I do for my paint projects. If the body of the uniform will not have any lines, logos or numbers on it I will color it in using paint. For those areas that will have striping, piping or logos I use IrfanView to make those areas transparent. I then place the uniform on a Power Point presentation and add striping, then place it to the back. The color of the uniform is then added and placed to teh back. My method is pretty basic, but it avoids the draw tool. If you had simply used the rectangle shape for the stripes and used the method I described they should look a lot cleaner.

Another piece of C&C, for schools with Nike as a sports supplier, I'd swap out the Reebok logos on these. Not quite necessary but just something I noticed. For UA schools I'd do the same. Adidas schools use Reebok in place of Adidas so you wouldn't need to worry about swapping those out.

Yes good to see the clones!!! Looks great, but the yellow stripes are really sloppy, work on that and you will have a pretty good concept.

Consider the information I put up previously. Even if you simply use the line option, it would be a vast improvement over hand drawing the lines with a mouse. If you use Paint.net you will have a few more options as well.

Amen to that. I have the same trouble now

I kinda agree with you. This is probably just my Iowa State fandom bias talking, but at first I thought the jersey looked nice and I didn't even notice the "roughness" until somebody pointed it out.

I'm sure with some time, the OP can improve his paint skills and sharpen them up. I've seen some AMAZING concepts on here that was done in paint and I don't see why the OP couldn't achieve that benchmark.

Here on the boards, I TRY to look past the "tools" that they used to see what concept they are trying to come up with. Sometimes a concept can be AWESOME while the execution/presentation isn't quite there. And sometimes a concept can look crappy but the execution/presentation is awesome.

Thanks for the C&C guys, I appreciate it. I hope that my Paint skills will improve, and the next team is coming soon!

Finally got my next team in, this time it's the Miami Hurricanes, I figured this team could be successful if famous alumni showed up at the games, plus if they didn't suck, Miami could be proud of a hockey team again. http://i.imgur.com/Q68eCny.jpg
