Here is another entry that came in for the Legends competition.

Battle of the Legends entry (by Dylan)



Washington Capitals concept (by Jeremy)A lot of loose pixels here in all of the usual areas. Also the Reebok logo wasn't coloured. I don't think the hem needs to be coloured red, I think it would look better white. The arm without the long blue stripe with stars should have different stitching as well. Finally, the red in the collar insert is a different shade than what is used on the jersey. Could be a good concept if the execution errors were cleaned up.

Penn Hills Indians High School concepts (by Stephen)The jerseys are something new, which I like, but the shading has not been properly filled in. Also, the jersey stripe should be over top of the shading, like what Stephen has done on the socks. Check out the tutorial from a couple of weeks ago to see how you can properly execute the full body template.

Boston Bruins concepts (by Torin)Torin slightly adjusts the current home sweater and moves it to alternate status. He's also used a retro logo as shoulder patches. I don't know how well it work work to have 2 "spoked B" logos on 1 jersey. I do like the use of brown though! I really like the road concept he's come up with here. The yellow seems a little bright though.

Buffalo Sabres concept (by Kyle C.)This is a different look to a jersey. It's not my choice, but I definitely applaud Kyle for trying something different. I'm sure there are a lot of other people who will like it. Good execution on the concept, except that with this style of striping, the jersey stitching would change to accommodate it. That means no shoulder yoke.

Toronto Maple Leafs concept (by Brian B.)Brian made these as "black for black sake". Great execution as everything looks nice and clean! I could see this as a promotional sweater sold in a department store for $80 or something like that.

Kelowna Rockets concepts (by Kevin) Description included in the concept.
Chicago Blackhawks concept (by WinnipegJets96)Jets96 has created a Vintage series of sweaters to mark the 70th anniversary of the Original 6 era. This one is pretty cool, but I think I'd like it better if it were true white, or is vintage white was used on the script in the logo. Also, if the secondary logo was to appear as it does on the player model, it would need to be shown (cut in half) just like a regular shoulder patch on other concepts. Hope that made sense.

Chicago Blackhawks concept (by Kyle S.)I love this concept! Everytime I use a new template I create a concept very similar to this. Great execution and presentation as well by Kyle! COTW nomination from me!
