I am back with some inspiration after finishing a marketing project on the new XFL.  It got me thinking about what the XFL could look like in a non-templated world, and also led me to trace out a new football template.  I started with the LA Wildcats, and immediately dropped the black.  I mean they play outdoors in the springtime of Los Angeles and decided to wear black!  Insted I moved orange to the primary, similar to the creamsicle bucs, with some modern elements.  Most notably, "wildcat scratch marks," on the sleeves, and a dynamic striping pattern that reflects the logo.  I plan to work on all 8 teams, and give more options to some teams if I see fit.  .

A good solid look for the Wildcats.

As far as your template goes, the helmet and pants look really good, and have a fair amount of detail to work off of. The pants, however, seem to be lacking. I think adding a belt to the template would go a long way, and possibly showing the pads that go under the pant would help give them more form.

Next team I worked on was the St.Louis Battlehawks.  I simplified their look down, to emphasize their great logo set and maintain color balance. I added a couple of pant options as well.

I think the color scheme of the Wildcats' current set is really unique to pro football and turning them into the Bucs creamsicle set is a downgrade.  That said, looking forward to seeing the rest of them. DC could use an update for sure.

I think St. Louis would look exceptional with a pants stripe added. As it stands, the pants sort of stick out in a distracting way.

So I worked on the Tampa Bay Vipers, and I will be the first to admit is a little unoriginal.  I swapped the current St. Louis Template and adapted it it to the Vipers.  Made the helmet gold, and emphasized the brighter green in a more tasteful way.  The mediocre V logo us replaced by the snake head alternate.  spacer.pngspacer.png

During this time of self-distancing, I have some more teams to share.  Starting with a Tampa Bay Vipers update with some new pant detailing, and an additional yellow pants option.

Also dropping the Dallas Renegades, basically brushing off the Arena Football look for something cleaner.  Main difference is the new home uniform color.  Overall I enjoy a brighter league where each teams' colors can pop off the screen.  spacer.pngspacer.png

Going to keep sharing with the DC Defenders.  Main difference is the pants removing the stripe around the bolt, but this was one of the teams that started out with respectable uniforms.  spacer.pngspacer.png
