Cincinnati Reds concept

Recommended Posts

So, long time reader, first time (attempted) artist* However, with no uniform tweak in sight for my beloved Cincinnati Reds, desperate times lead to desperate measures. In my opinion, their current set is an improvement over the 1999-2006 cartoonish "black for the sake of black" nightmare. That said, there are still many elements from the previous set that could be eliminated (i.e., use of dropshadow, black-billed road hats), as well as a few new elements (old-timey font with outline and dropshadow) that just make my eyes hurt (literally and figuratively).

So, for this (attempted) concept, I tried to go "back to the future" to the classic 1970-1992 look for the primary uniforms (home and road) with a little bit of the 1950s/early 1960s for alternates (which would preserve the use of black, but return it to its more historic - i.e., pre-1999 - uses). I've also used their current uniforms (sans logos and wordmarks) as a starting point.
