Iowa Football Concept (UPDATED)

Recommended Posts

Hello all, its been a while.

Just got back from a study abroad program and needed to make some kind of concept. I had done an Iowa pro combat concept a while back and decided to build upon it a bit. I wanted to move away from the steelers look and give iowa a clean, streamlined, modern look. Not too much else to add. C&C welcome and appreciated.

Tht is pretty much perfect and those schetches are insane thou I would lose the two tone numbers and maybe use a little more yellow

Great job putting the artwork into digitized form. I really wish I had either talent.

The only thing I would change would be to take the stripes off the helmet (leaving it stripeless) and make the home pants yellow/gold. The 3d effect on the number font is unneeded - I think if you kept that font and took out the shadow it'd look better.

Great concept - very modern, not too flashy, gets away from the Steelers look, harkens back to banana peels without being gaudy, and...just looks good.

I think on the white jersey it needs a bit more yellow, and I would make the numbers one color, but other than that, I like it.

Hey! Iowa can't wear this, the Steelers haven't!

Jokes aside, I like it. Shoulder Stripes look good and modern. And good job on drawing the templates. That's something I could never do. It may not look as professional, like the computer templates you made at the bottom, but it looks more impressive.

Sweet Jesus that's incredible! Honestly, that's the best Iowa concept I've ever seen, and I really hope that somehow they wear this in the future!

Wow, your sketches are absolutely fantastic! I don't like the effect you used on the numbers, but other than that it's amazing.

As a lifelong Hawkeye fan, thanks for not changing the Tigerhawk. Enjoyed your concept. With the jerseys being fitted different recently, they lose the striped sleeves so I liked the shoulder stripes (slight nod to the mid-90s unis). Like others have said, would like to see more yellow incorporated throughout both uniforms. Also, I liked to see the rest of the digits as well.

Only comment I have is the size of the numbers, a number like 88 isn't going to fit at the size they are now. Take them down a bit, drop the two-tone grey and white, maybe include some yellow?

Other than that everything looks fantastic!

Des Moines has a metro population of less than 600,000. No NFL ould work there.

Which has nothing to do with the concept, or this thread...

I vote you add back the yellow piping around the collar that was there in the initial sketches. I think that may balance it out nice. I actually like the lack of yellow pants, because it's different for them (and not like the Steelers).

Everything is flat out gorgeous, I just can't really see those cool helmet stripes that would bring the whole look together nicely. Make those more pronounced and I'm sold. Other then that I have nothing else to add that hasn't already been mentioned.

Those are slick!

A great modernized look for a classic team.

I think you nailed this.
