Broncos Real Life Helmet Concept - A Mix of Eras

Recommended Posts

A few years ago there was a Broncos helmet concept floating around the internet. I thought it was a nice mix of eras, so I decided to see what it would look like if I actually made it...

It's a process. It's not hard, just takes practice and patience.

how did you make the helmet

Here is the general process I follow....

This was one of the first helmets I made. The basic process has remained the same, but with some tweeks, mainly that I don't clear coat the helmet any longer.

Change the facemask to navy and you have a winner. White would work too...better than gray.

Bet you could sell that on eBay for a nice chunk.

I think you need to make the logo bigger.

Agreed. I made it a bit smaller per the request of the person I made the helmet for. I think the slightly smaller size is magnified by the size of the helmet though.

Finally got around to making another one of these for my own collection, but I'mm having a hard time deciding on which mask color is best.  In my head before making the helmet, I envisioned a navy mask looking best.  But after playing around with different looks on the actual helmet, the orange mask is looking pretty good to me too.  What do you guys think?

I think a white mask would be the best bet for this helmet.

I think you may be right.  I don't have a white mask on hand, but it give it a try soon.

 

I think the navy mask is good in theory, but not as great in practice.  It reminds me a bit of when the Bills introduced the red helmets with the blue masks.  After a of couple seasons, they switched to white masks.

I can never decide if that stupid full-body Bronco logo is trying to look tough or saying "Draw me like one of your French girls."

 

Good work on your part, though.

While I like the idea of a white mask, but the more I think about it and look at it, I think I'm going to go with the navy.  Thanks for the input guys.
