Truthfully? Too hard to tell, everything is so small I can hardly make out any detail.

Give us a sheet with just the logos on it at a reasonable size and I'm sure you'll get plenty of feedback, but right now it's all too tiny to be constructive. What I can see looks good, but any more than that right now would be speculation.

The uniforms are nice and simple; the fox logo looks good from what I can see but outlines be the mouth need to be thicker.

By the way, do you have a vector version of the Revo Speed helmet i could use? I'm really diggin it.

Is that logo original?

The side panel on your red jerseys is brown, which butts up directly against the red side panel of the brown pants. Having side panels on the jersey that don't match the pants kind of defeats the purpose of the side panels in the first place.

I like the color scheme alot - brown and red work alot better than most people think. The logo is nice too. I think my only critiques would be minor things like what bringbackthevet was talking about with the side panels on the red uniform. Tweak that around and it will definetely improve. Also, another suggestion I have is to make the red uniform the primary home, seeing as how they are the "Crimson Foxes". Overall a great job!

Yeah that looks familiar to me as well. The design is simple and the use of the Revo Speed is a nice touch as well.

Yeah, the logo is original. I used an actual picture of a fox. I'll post it when I find it along with bigger pics of the uniforms.

Sorry about the size you guys. I forgot that photobucket limits the sizes to 640x480. Here are the actual sizes along with the picture that I used to create the logo.

Looks good except for I think you should sub out brown for Crimson since the name is Crimson Foxes.

Okay now that I've seen it a bit bigger I'd say while I like the fact you've varied the line weight around the foxes head I think the difference is to drastic. It's way to thin under it's jaw. I'm also curious as to why it's thickest at the top, now this might be a personal thing but I've always used any thicker lines in my logos to help demonstrate the direction the light is going in, thinest in highlighted areas and thickest in the darker areas, but that doesn't seem to be the case here, unless you've deliberate lit the subject from below to make it look more sinister, in which case you may want to review the darker area on the fur at the bottom. One way or another it just doesn't seem to read properly to my eye.

The logo type could do with some serious work if you ask me as it stands right now it's just a typeface with a keyline round it, It doesn't really say foxes to me, it's pretty static with no real movement to speak of and nothing unique or individual about it. If I had the inclination I'm pretty sure I could find the font in five minutes and recreate exactly what you've got there simply by typing the name and adding a stroke to it. A logo type should be as individual as the logo is. Look at interesting ways you could create ligatures (joining letters) within the logo type, is there an element from the logo that could be easily transfered over to the text? It needs to be given some life of it's own it's just as important as the character part of any logo package.

For the most part I like the uni's although like at least one other poster I'm a little confused as to why a team called the crimson foxes use their crimson uni as an alt, surely that should be the primary if ever there was one?

Great start though, and solid idea and name, I look forward to seeing how you take this forward.

you know crimson nudges into the blue side of red? (220, 20, 60)

"Crimson is a strong, bright, deep red color combined with some blue, resulting in a tiny degree of purple."

foxes, if anything are the yellow side of red. orange/ginger or vermillion colour.

none of the colours in your pallette are near crimson.

see bama for reference:

Not to mention that if this were an NFL team, that shade of brown would be illegal because it's too close to the color of the ball. (As discussed in these parts some time back, that's one reason why the Cleveland Browns use a much darker shade of brown as their primary color.)

I also dont like the inconsistencies in the outer black line. it's way too thick on the top and left in comparison to how thin it is around the chin area. also,around the head and nose there is not fur details or jaggedness, which is ok i guess, but then on the bottom there is a lot more fur detail. i think it should be more consistent throughout. other than that i think this has a lot of promise and with some tweaks will be a very good logo.
