KHL Stadium Series - Admiral Vladivostok

Recommended Posts

Well here's something that I don't think anyone has or will ever try again. (The closest now [that I know of] is JCRGraphix's Winter Classic/ Stadium Series older games in which he featured CSKA Moskow). Anyway, Before everyone complains about the chrome logos, or the angled striping/ TV Numbers, half the reason I started this was to embrace the tacky terribleness of the Stadium Series designs. Yeah, I hate the chrome too, but I want to show you how good it could look if Reebok used some different ideas. Besides when worn just for one special game, I don't think chrome ever hurt anyone. Except you, Isles, If you do end up using your Stadium Series jersey full time, please rid your self of the chrome!

Depending on how much reception this gets, I can make one for every team, but if this gets minimal comments, I will stick with my original plans and just do 8.

So far I have Donetsk, Bratislava, St. Petersburg, and Vladivostok finished, but I can take requests for any team (in the KHL of course).

Here's the first one I did in Bratislava! (Note Daradniz29 made all the logos for the first three, then I figured out how to do it myself and Vladivostok uses my first one)

One comment, nice, nice.

Well, I guess I should post another concept to fuel the fire, this one of Donbass Donetsk.

I really like these. Donbass' really look like something they would wear.

Just so you know though, don't expect too many comments on any KHL-related work. I've tried doing a KHL rebrand twice, and JCR tried it a few months ago, and nobody comments or even notices.

I'll be paying attention to this, though. Good work.

Thanks guys! Expect one tomorrow. (SKA most likely)

I like the fact it's not NHL lol I thought about doing Euro league jersey concepts before but I was always worried that if it wasn't the big 4 leagues (NHL,MLB,NBA,NFL) it would just get ignored. Even my WHA rehash only got luke warm reception

Just an idea; how awesome would a CSKA/Dynamo outdoor game be? If you're looking for a Winter Klassic to go along with these, that would be great.

I'd love to see Medveščak, 'cuz I'm a big fan!

I like seeing European teams getting their concepts from the good people on this forum, especially hockey and basketball.

Keep it up man, I want to see it done! :P:)

Answer time!

No just kinda focusing on the Stadium Series aspect of it right now, but yeah I could see a Winter Klassic (Nice "K") something like that would be pretty cool!

How about Omsk with an Alexei Cherepanov patch?

I was going to do Omsk before I read your comment, but the Chereponov patch idea is perfect! Definitely using.

Hmm... Reading up on the amount of Euro league games held outdoors (I can't believe Mexico City [if Wikipedia's right, I have my doubts] hosted one) Medveščak hosted 2 already, and that Amphitheater is a pretty cool place to host one. Just if I decide to do one, expect a lot of checkerboard pattern (If you don't get why, the Croatian crest has checkerboards and well Medveščak is the Croat's entry into the KHL, make sense?) In fact for my KHL redesign, I used the checkerboard pattern for Medveščak anyway, here.

That's a great concept for Medveščak and you don't have to explain why are you going to use a checkerboard pattern I'm Croat and we are known to be great patriots. If checkerboard could be on every jersey of every team in every sport we'd do it.

Can't wait to see what will you make.

Eric's right, Jake.

People seem to respond to the subject, more so than the actual work being done;

So a thread such as this, with some real nice concepts, may get fewer views than someone who simply states that they're thinking of starting an NFL alt series, and has no concepts to show.

It's frustrating, but that's how it is here these days.

However...Nice stuff.

I really like your use of white on the Donbass Uni.

(I always read that as Dumbass :lol: )

Thanks.

I figured that you would know, but the newer user type might not get the use of the Checkerboard.

Next concept up, SKA St. Petersburg.

These are close to the ones that the team used before they got the recolored Rangers jerseys. This one tries to stay close to these ones. (In fact I own a white version of those). I hate how the pant Reebok logo looks, but since I'm trying to stay true to Reebok, I went with it. (The Rangers pants looked like that.)

As essentially the CCSLC's Aussie rules & random obscurities specialist, I feel that pain...basically comparable to Terry Pratchett's god of evolution (what I mean by this is posting concepts you largely know won't get that many comments because you believe too strongly in your vision not to). Though I figure the Moscow teams would net at least a few comments, if only because they're from Moscow....them or Jokerit because that winking jester is pretty versatile. I recall doing a Dynamo Moscow set a few years back though, that got a decent amount of comments, so you never know.

Anyways, I figured there had to be Hummingbird/Robopenguin knockoffs out there. There just couldn't not have been. Them's the shakes though, this is the very first time I've seen Bratislava's robo-eagle. The two I'm looking at (SKA's didn't load, so I'll have to reload in a bit...dialup sucks, i'll leave it at that) are solid designs, the only truly tacky thing's the odd angle of the numbers.

Just want to bump this and hopefully get a few more comments on these before I post the next one.
