NHL ProCombat

A few months ago, user Goallinedesign approached me about a collab doing NHL ProCombats. The project never got off the ground, and I was stuck with a concept that I never did anything with. If I ever get the time, I may revisit this, but for now, here is my one finished team- the Atlanta Thrashers

Whoa, I really like the idea of this concept, it holds a lot of potential. I really like the "cold" feeling you get from this jersey. However, I think that the birds on the back are too much like seagulls, but other than that, this is a great concept.

although the idea for "nhl pro combat" is a cool one, this concept reflects none of that potential. First of all, why would you use a reebok template if nike is going to be the manufacturer? Why include the "blueland" motto if you don't put it in a clever/random place on the uniform like nike does? Slapping a different color palette on the blue jackets edge template does not equate to a nike redesign. Also, seagulls on the back of the jersey don't do it for me, thrashers look absolutely nothing like that in terms of wing span, body shape, etc. Finally, I know that nike likes to experiment with bright outline colors and barely-differering colors for the numbers/jersey base, but the numbers you have here would be illegible, at least the "volt" for oregon is bright enough so that you can read the numbers.

I think the one nitpick I have with this is, as Elliot mentioned, that you used a reebok template for a Nike concept. That being said however, I really love this idea. Totally fits a "Blueland" theme. I would suggest brightening the light blue a bit to make the names and numbers more legible, and tweak the bird silhouettes a bit - or maybe even use that Thrasher crest filled in solidly to appear as a solid silhouette, as Has2916 mentioned. Again though, I really like the idea! Nice work, keep it up.

I completely redid it on a Nike template.

The front logo has been changed like Ryan suggested, and the Thrasher outline is now subliminated on the back. On the front, I also subliminated the arrowhead design from the original jerseys. The powder blue has been lightened and the navy blue has been darkened to the official colours.

This would look a lot sharper if you used a transparency on the black sublimated parts. If you can't do that, just used a darker shade of blue. I think that would look much, much better. It's too crowded with all the full-color symbols, especially on the back.

I'm using Photoshop, so I can use transparency. I tried it and it looks much better. I'll post it when i get a chance.
