College Football Helmets

Recommended Posts

WARNING! HUGE FILE (Not for the faint hearted or low-speed users). I did the dirty work. If you want your favorite team, save the image and cut it out because I'm not saving these as individual files. I'll get to the other 5 Div. I-A conferences soon, but here's this for now.

It is transparent. That's why it's so large; It's a 24-bit .png with transparency, making it roughly 650k in size. If it's not transparent when you copy it over or when you save it, I don't know what to tell you.

If anyone has vector helmet logos and/or PANTONE color info for teams from the Mountain West, WAC, MAC, Conference USA, or Sun Belt, feel free to email them to me [andrewcharlesharrington@gmail.com]. Gathering color info and finding/tracing helmet logos is what makes the process go so slowly. If I don't have to hunt for that info, I can be done in a few days. If I have to find it, it might be a few weeks. So yes, if you have any info that can help me, send it along.

Okay, so when I copy and paste the image into Illustrator or Photoshop, it has a white background. If I save the image, then place it into my photoshop document, it's transparent. Hope that helps Cooleyvol.

Those are really awesome. Can't wait to see when you have all 116 D1 schools completed.

No MAC love yet for your Bobcats? Are you putting Temple with the MAC?

Well, there are teams that I could theoretically do because I have the logos and colors or whatever, but I like to do them conference by conference so I can keep track of what I've done more easily. Right now, I have all the empty helmets laid out and colored approximately, waiting for logos and color confirmation/correction. Temple is indeed in the MAC.

Any chance you would be willing to share the vector file for the Tennessee helmet?

120 teams once Western Kentucky joins the Sunbelt for the upcoming season.

Thanks, I'll give saving it a try when I get home.

Really nice but the Ole Miss helmet isn't correct. The Ole and Miss arn't on the same level.

Good catch. It's fixed. My apologies to Ole Miss fans.

nice work, andrew. no ghost flames for U of O?

Yeah, I'll probably end up doing it, but I don't know whether I should use the original preseason helmet with the O on the side or the bowl game helmet with the O on the back. I could do the white helmet as well, but I don't know if they're planning on using it.

At any rate, there they are. I put the O on the side for identification purposes, and I included the white helmet in case it ever sees the light of day.

Ah, I love this. I'll probably get around to using Ole Miss (for those who know my history...I have turned heel on Mississippi State because I might end up going to Ole Miss :P), UGA, or VT in the future. All in all, this looks GREAT. Your hard work is appreciated.
