Bengals update

Recommended Posts

Here's an attempt at giving the Cincinnati Bengals a badly needed update. I wanted to simplify, at least a little, but not too much. IMO the Bengals are one of the NFL teams that should look a little cutting edge. However, I think a lot of us would agree their current look is way too cluttered. Anyway, thoughts are appreciated, as always.

They should be wearing these today!

Plain and simple: It's genius.

It's the "contained tiger stripes" of the 90s, on the template of the current unis, and cleaned up considerably. Frankly, I'm amazed nobody has done this before.

This is what the Bengals should be wearing instead of their current mess of a uniform. Perfect. (**)(**)(**)(**)(**)

I'm not a big fan of the number font, but everything else looks great. When you have something as visually dominating as tiger stripes (or lightning bolts for that matter) its better to stick with a standard font, so the two elements are competing for attention.

OSV, it'd be great to see some action templates of your work. As separate elements these uniforms parts look great, but I can't help but feel it would be actually be a very top heavy set once it all comes together.

Yeah, I used to have an action template that I worked from, but it was pretty rough looking, and I stopped using it. Maybe I'll try to update it.

Just out of curriosity, what makes you think this would be top heavy? I mean moreso than any uniform with dark jersey/helmet over white pants?

Wow, it looks great. Way better than the dropshadowed, mangle of bengal stripes. Nice Job.

Personally, I would like to see the Bengals get away from the shoulder stuff (like the current white jerseys). I do like how you got rid of the side stripes. They just need something simple like they had in the 80's and 90's.
