Finally...my Concepts


AAO

Recommended Posts

aaaand...you are??? j/k :P

okay debut, but i won't lie to you: i think your template sucks. i figure like me, you can't afford Illustrator or the like, so i sympathize. they're all good ideas, just you're defeated by Paint. i'm guessing you also lack a program that's sort of between Paint and Illustrator, though.

Keep pluggin away, you'll make it work one of these days. B)

Some tips to help smooth your transition to the CCSL forum world...

Self-praise, even subtle stuff like "it's done well" needs to be masked with "I think I've done well", or "I'm proud of what I've done so far" to avoid looking conceited. I'm pretty sure you're not conceited, so don't worry about that, but repeat offenses might raise an eyebrow.

Also, get somebody here to explain how to convert to gif or jpg... 1.7 MB per image takes a long time to load. I think you just renamed the bmp's with a gif or jpg/jpeg handle right? I don't think that's the way it works. Unfortunately I'm ignorant in these matters, I can't personally help you here.

Get a good template. Right now STL Fanatic's jersey template database is down, but the SSUR's jersey template page, while not completely exhaustive, is a good option.

Keep working at it, and look to upgrade to Illustrator ASAP. Educational discounts are available that make it far more affordable (ie. under $400) to those who qualify, and it is the best investment you can make if you're serious about this. You have some outstanding ideas that I'd love to see cleaned up.

Good luck... some cool concepts are a great way to introduce yourself to the board, so let me say 'welcome here, keep up the great work'.

thats what I used to do before I discovered the magic of templates, i would draw everything even football helmets, i still use paint though. Everyone goes through stages in the designing process. First you draw uniforms on paper when your a little kid, then you figure out that you can use the computer, then you find this site and realize how much farther you can go, then you find the templates, then you get a fancy designing program, then you turn out awesome work like the people here.

I agree with everyone, you're really held back by Paint, but you've got serious potential.

I love your Kings logo concept (I can look beyond the crappy Paint exterior and I can picture it as a smooth vector logo)... transfer that bad boy to illustrator and you'll have a sure fire winner on that. I've actually been working on my next NBA Redesign Project concept for the Sacramento Kings, and have been toying with logos, so yours definitely helped me get the wheels turning.

But anyway, good debut, just get a solid template, and if possible get illustrator or even photoshop/paint shop pro or something and make it happen. Good stuff.

Well, I must say, these are quite nice. And I concur with the previous statements about Paint. I strongly urge you to get Illustrator if at all possible. You will love it. :)

The Bulls is, by far, my favorite. It has a very edgy, futuristic feel to it, and the uniforms look fantastic. I almost want to ask if I could play with them in Illustrator and clean them up a bit to see how they would look beyond the limits of Paint. Would you mind? I know some people are particular about things like that, so I don't want to overstep my boundaries.

yeah i sent him a pm asking if he would mind if i did them in illustrator too just to see them cleaned up... in fact i kinda got a head start on the spurs... but if he says no i wont post it and just delete it... though i am curious what fonts he used in that logo

yea...you guys can do what you want with the logos its not a big deal to me, i wanna see them in illustrator myself...i dont mind at all. i have played around on illustrator before, its just a lot more complicated than paint and i need more time to work with it cause i only have it at school . but im about to put up the rest of the concepts i have done on my website...

what these concepts lack in pollish, they make up for in quality, imo.

i really like the designs of these, and i love the bulls logo.

btw, if anyone's going to be giving out charity copies of illustrator, don't forget coley-cole :cursing:

:)

btw, i really enjoy this kings look.

I get a kick out of you guys, asking for a free copy of illustrator. Thousands of people offer it up for free everyday on P2P networks. :P

It's refreshing, isn't it? I get a kick out of being reminded that honest-to-goodness law-abiding people still exist too!
