Lonely Alts: Royals Generations


Discrim

Recommended Posts

Been a while since I did any Generations fourshots, and I figured as much as I wanted to put out the Dodgers or Phillies, it was time to do an AL team. If I were going on just Royals history, there's no way I would've even tried. Fortunately, there's more to KC baseball history than the Royals, and I considered a KC Blues tribute before deciding against it. For those who didn't see any of the previous Generations posts, it's one team (or one city, if/when I do the Natinals) and four alts, most of which will be partially or fully based on past uniforms. Anyways, let's begin.

Kansas City A's tribute I (1993 season)

Yes, I based these on a one-season uniform. And am essentially about halfway to pulling a BYU "really dark royal" blue on you.

Kansas City Monarchs tribute (1997 season)

My main explanation for the miscolored Jackie patch: the Marlins' version here was better quality than the leaguewide version. The Monarchs had a good number of uniforms, and most of em are lost to history. Of course I figure most of you can easily picture the uni this is based on.

KC A's tribute II (2011 season)

Heh, I liked that gold vest Florida State had a while back. If I was playing this one completely straight, I wouldn't have snuck the crowned KC in, and used a blue KC instead of the shield. Anyways, at least it aint more light blue.

American Royal tribute (2011 season)

The only uniform of the four I used powder blue on, and tbh, it's been a little while since I went and created anything beyond script. The crowned bull is a reference to the American Royal, which is a livestock show, horse show and rodeo that's been held in Kansas City since 1899 (currently in Kemper Arena), and you could also take it as a reference to being known for great barbecue. Yes, I'm aware the thing looks similar to the Bulls logo, but it was either this or a horsehead. Which everybody would've said looked way too much like the Flames' horsehead.

Previous Generations sets: Cubs - Giants - Brewers

heh, this temp's what I'm comfortable with, and I've seen worse. Aint much reason aside from my own whim to make any notable changes, so I'll stick with it. Only thing I really see myself doing templatewise in the near future is possibly working on some action temps I forgot about a while back.

Gotta love the recent trend of ragging on Discrim's templates. Are they the most detailed or proportionate? No. Do they fit his concepts and have they become as much a part of his concepts as the design themselves? Most definitely. Personally I wouldn't want to see his concepts any other way.

Awesome work as usual. I love the Monarchs-based design, I would like to see them use that as an alternate for real. I'm also a fan of the gold uniform. Keep up the unique work!
