Final FSU Concept

Done! Click my portfolio in the sidebar to see it all. But this is my finished version of a project I really wanted to finish, and I'm really happy how it turned out!

2013 Winter Classic

I finally did something that I've had in mind for a long time!
So here is a concept for an all Florida Winter Classic. Obviously, it's a joke. The weather down there for New Years is about mid 60s, and Raymond James Stadium hosts a bowl game on New Years Day! But one can dream. 

I took the Winter Classic script from the last 3 years, and some aspects over the years with the snowflakes, NHL logo, and puck. I did a beach scene, and a palm tree for the area, just for cliche effect.

The jerseys were the best part, and they were just silly. The Bolts' set is an old alternate I made last season with the Habs' stripes with Tampa Bay on the chest. The only difference is vintage white. The Panthers set has old 1920s stripes, and beige pants. I didn't want to do a throwback for Tampa, and Florida doesn't have that much of a vintage history, so Faux-backs will do!

Comment, everyone. I might do some more, I might not. You'll see.

Florida State alternate logos

Here is some other logos.

Still working on the face, I'm working on the bacon face, and trying to make the face paint not look thrown together. Here are two alternate logos, and a script while I'm working. I'm going to make the feather on the Osceola logo match the one on the spear. I used some spear logos, the two official logos, and the nike spear. I wanted to update the logo from the link below, and thought of doing this with a state outline.

Two things I'm considering keeping as is, just as a personal opinion.
  • the colors
  • rotation

I seriously hate the way the football uniforms look. Personally the gold pants looks like watered down champagne, and I'm pretty sure they don't match the helmets. If I get in, the in the top 3 things to do is order this shirt. I love the colors. I wanted to originally use the Predators gold, but figured gold was too set in the history of the school, and the colors would be similar to the Gophers. I lightened it, and sort of made it into a "honey mustard" color. I like how it looks on the logos, but might change it when I do work on the football uniform, to make it a little more gold.

And I'm still leaning for the downward turned head. I see it as charging into battle, instead of looking up to the skies. Not sure, that's how I look at it.
