Hand-Drawn Baseball Drawings I: Alton Baseball League

Recommended Posts

Norwood-Silverton-Abrii would be good as the third city.

Well the thing is, the bi-state area is between the states of Abrii and Tescara. While it might represens a bi-state area, the stadium is in Silverton, Abrii and is therefore named after Abrii.

The music note is the best logo ever...

Thanks! The one I posted is actually a result of a last-minute tweak. (The flag used to be on the left side of the "v" instead of the right)

---------------------------------

For this next update, I have finished the cap logos for the United League Western Division:

[10232173694_0a0e9680a1_c.jpg

From left to right: Claraville Whalers, Los Altos Capitals, Princeton Majestics, Rattick City Rebels, and the Santiago Bay Merchants.

Along with that, I want you guys to decide on the best color combination for the Larfa Entrepreneurs (Entreps for short):

We got gold on black, red on blue, green on orange, orange on green, and white on red. I'd like the colors to be appealing to the casual fan as well as reflecting the business attitude of the also-casino-city Larfa.

Can't wait to see what y'all think!

PS: I'd like to know how to edit the topic name as well as to add a poll. I can't find it... Never mind, I found it.

So seeing from the poll results so far, I see it's a split between gold-on-black and red-on-blue with orange-on-green not far behind. With that in mind, I decided to go more in-depth with this.

Let's start with the home wordmarks first:

Then the home jerseys:

The cap logos:

10253238844_61278469bf_n.jpg

And finally, I want you guys to decide on an away wordmark. Since the "L" on the cap logo wouldn't look good on a script, I decided to go with plain block letters for away. Each color scheme has two options:

10253337775_06e4049a33.jpg

I will edit the poll with the options 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, and 3B. The letter goes to the overall color scheme and the number goes to the away wordmark you'd like. Note that none of these are the final designs as I'm still bringing out ideas.

I really appreciate your help in helping me with this pretty hard team to make an identity out of. Can't wait to see what y'all think!

~ Daryl

PS: Does anybody know how to remove an old poll that also removes that poll's results? What I mean is that when I put up the new poll, I originally replaced the old question and the answers, but the results from the old poll were still there.

I really like this TheGiantsFan, some really good old school hand drawns.

I love your hand drawn ball parks, they're beautiful. Under the the first one, Cisco Field, is a amazing map, is that hand drawn too? I really enjoy the character of hand drawn concepts on here, my best advice for you is to get some good pencils, keep them sharp and do larger drawings, otherwise it starts too look sloppy.

Thanks! I love drawing the ballparks! As for the map, it's a map I finished back in May of the Henderson area (where the Founders are from). I draw maps because of my road hobby. Here's a pic of that map:

Back to my baseball drawings, I just finished making the identity for the Birmingham Colonials:

14613439354_29f9da927b_c.jpg

I kinda feel like it's rushed, but it's an overall simple scheme. The colors red and blue represent the old royalist states around the state of York.

As for the poll, it looks as though it's neck-in-neck between gold-on-black and orange-on-green. I appreciate your votes, guys! I'll leave the poll open for a while to see a definite winner.

What do you guys think?

You have some nice colour schemes and they feel to me as they blend nicely.

BTW that is a decent map.

I like the map, the amount of detail is ridicolous. I like Birmingham, I'd keep the red-blue color scheme, it definitely gives off a "loyalist" feel.

Thanks guys! As for the map, it took me about half a year or so to finish...

For the next update, here I have Honda Field, the stadium for the Birmingham Colonials:

14636005404_9b90bedd25_c.jpg

I'm afraid I made this stadium a bit too much like Petco Park in San Diego: brick building in LF, a park in CF, a gap in the stands in RF, a city setting, the seat colors, yeah... I also felt this stadium is too much of a hitters' park (I put the dimensions in the lower-right corner). To solve this, I sank the stadium so the playing field is below ground level.

Seeing from the poll results, I guess I'll go with gold-on-black with black away script for the Entreps. I feel that that balances the results from the two questions.

So what do y'all think?

Sinking the Stadium is an awesome idea. Would probably need a pretty big fence around the outside to keep peope out though

I don't know if you notice it, but I put little "roofs" over a part of the walkway leading to the exits. That's where the gates are. And thanks!

You got big talent man, congrats for great job

Thanks, man!

----------------------------------------

For my next update, I managed to finish two teams' uniforms today. They're the Larfa Entrepreneurs and the Henderson Founders, both from the Alton League West division.

Here's the Larfa Entreps, with the colors decided with the help of you guys (it really helped, thanks!):

Here's the other one I finished today, the Henderson Founders:

10372252704_b741f5a76e_c.jpg

The Founders use a unique font based on the "H" logo, shown on the right hand side of the paper. Also, the "H" is supposed to evoke that of a scroll, hence the little "twirl" on the upper-right corner of the "H."

What do y'all think?

Oh man, I love both. I'm seeing a lot of inter-locking logos though. But Henderson is brilliant, Green-Brown is a really underrated color scheme, can't really think of anyone of the top of my head that uses it. But you pulled it of to perfection!
