Kentucky Bluegrass

Hey guys. Getting it done on a sketch pad, I planned some more football concepts. First was the Kentucky Wildcats, then to put it in a group, I also did Louisville, and Western Kentucky. Sit back in youre desk chair and enjoy.

28/120 Kentucky
I have a few things on Kentucky. The first is a concept with simple dual sleeve stripes. Those stripes are also on the helmet and pants. Both have a checkerboard pattern on the back of the jersey. The second one is with stripes running down the sleeves, like the Titans. I modeled it after the current basketball SoD jersey.
Lastly, I tried putting numbers on the stripes, something new I think.

Notice the UK logo i made. Its not like the current one. When I was vectorizing it, I noticed how much I hated the outlines not being even. I made one with even outlines, just to try, and liked it better.

29/120 Louisville
I knew the currents had sleeve stripes, and a drop shadow on the numbers. I took that, and made it modern. Instead of the cardinal head on the helmet, I moved it to the sleeve, and took the Cardinal with a wing, and Louisville over it. Also, I left the Louisville script on the chest. The white socks go with red pants. Finally made a Pro Combat style pants stripe.

30/120 Western Kentucky
Matching stripes running from under the armpit down onto the pants. Strategically making the stripes the same on the home and road, so they would match on the silver pants. The primary is on the helmet, and the mascot logo is on the sleeve. It seemed very fitting for WKU. Chose a font close to the logo's font for the number. Then decided to put stripes on the socks, just for fun.

Comments? Suggestions? Requests? Sarcastic remarks?
