Team Canada Flashback and a New Blog

Welcome back folks!  I've got a Team Canada concept to share today, and then a quick announcement about a second blog I've created.

Team Canada:
Back in September 2013, Chris from Icethetics received a tip that Canada's 2014 Olympic team would have a black third jersey (along with a brief description of the jersey).  He then asked me to create a mock-up/prediction based off of that description.  In the end my mock-up (which you can see below) wasn't that close.  Nevertheless, I've brought back that design (with some updates) and turned it into the set of jerseys seen above.

And here was my original mock-up...
As you can see, it was a bit different from their actual third jersey.

Meanwhile, I've created a new blog called Snapshots with Steven.
The purpose of Snapshots with Steven is to use photos to help tell stories about interesting experiences.  The first post is all about the August 2017 total solar eclipse, both the good (the eclipse itself), and the bad (the gridlock afterwards).  Go check it out, and let me know what you think!

See you later!

Double Lightning

As promised, I'm back with a new concept for my NHL Double Series.

My Ideal Tampa Bay Lightning:
My "Ideal" concept is based off of the Lightning's current look but with a few changes, including adding contrasting yokes, using a brighter blue, removing any black, and (most importantly) bringing back the victory stripes.

New Look Tampa Bay Lightning:
The sleeves of my second concept feature a lightning bolt design, which connects to form a contrasting name-plate on the back of the jersey.  I also experimented with navy blue instead of royal blue, and used the circular bolt from their roundel as the primary logo.  The name and number fonts are the same on both concepts, as they seemed to fit both concepts well.

Have a good day!

62 Team Templates

Hello, and happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

As you can see in the above image, I've now made templates for all 62 home and road NHL Adidas jerseys.  They can all be found on the main Templates page.  Specialty jerseys, like the Toronto Arenas throwback (and any outdoor game jerseys), will come at a later date

Also, I've switched to a different image hosting site for all the template images.  With the former site they seemed to be losing some details (especially within the NHL shield in the collar, and sometimes with the collar laces), but that all should be fixed now.

Next up I'm going to get back to my NHL Double series, so I should have a concept to share on here fairly soon.

Team Templates and More

Hello there!  It's been a long time since my last post here (sorry about that).  Unfortunately I don't have a concept to share today (sorry again), although I'm hoping to get back to my NHL Double Series soon.  In the meantime, this is just a quick post with a couple of updates.

First of all, if you've been on the main Templates page lately you've probably noticed I've started to add all the Adizero team templates.  So far I've got 22 teams completed, and the other 9 teams will be coming sometime later (I'd like to have them all done before the start of the NHL season, but I'm not making any promises).

Also, I've made an Adidas Adizero version of the Reebok Edge template from SportsLogos.Net (the template from the forum's Paint Users Paradise thread).  All I really did (basically) was put the inner stitching of my Combo template inside of the SportsLogos.Net template.  This template can be found on it's own page, called Extra Templates (there's a few different versions of the template for the different yoke styles and stuff).

That's all for today, hopefully it won't be too long before I'm back again!

Simple Predators

Hello there, here's another concept!

Nashville Predators:
The Nashville Predators simplified their jerseys with the switch to Adidas, but they went too far and now their jerseys are bland.  This concept is my attempt at keeping the simplicity of their new jerseys, while avoiding the blandness.

So long!
