Playoff '08 Avatars "16 Wins Later" - Zombies

Time for the 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs and avatars





here are the ones we have so far, most of them have been taken already, but this will be a gallery of sorts:

.....................

......................

.................


if you want to try and make your own, use the template attached below for uniformity's sake..

a zip file with instructions and font

I saw this in the original thread by Hemlawk86:

first thing i thought was "holy ****".. that is some great PS work and scary as ****..

AWESOME!

looks like '28 Days Later' Jagr.. how many days later would the Finals be? maybe a play on 28 Days Later? 4 Rounds Later?

here's his own avatar..

thoughts
one thing on their mind like zombies, wins/the cup, etc..
we'll need to come up with:
  • a new background/template
  • a new slogan/tag-line i.e. 16 Wins Later or Zombie ____
  • other people/players, since there are only so many
  • find "suitable" photos for the scary pictures of the players

shoot around some ideas..

P.S. I call a Drury one.. we can have more than one picture per player, but i call one Drury..

I really like the zombie idea. What kind of tag line are we looking at? Zombie Jagr/Drury etc? How about something like "Out for blood"?

What if we made them from zombies into vampires and called them "Count Jagr"

PS. I call Shanny

Here's more of what has been made:

This sounds like an awesome idea, and I am getting this in early too.

If we were going to go with one player per person then we should go with the Zombie _____________ idea. But if we are going to do multiples we should something like 16 Wins Later as a play on 28 days later. The best one I got is, Resident Evil: Vindication.

Yeah the movies suck, but I think it works in that we can use have the movie name in it and then use vidication because we were doubted by a lot of people (including ourselves) for a lot of the year. I don't think it is the best idea either, but it is something. So please don't be too hard on me if you think it sucks, I am a law student, I am not supposed to be creative.

Here is a link to Wikipedia's list of Zombie movies for name ideas. If you want to think of something better. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zombie_movies


I would like some zombie Henrik.

I like this idea.

I like the font styles a lot, so much so that I don't think there needs to be much of a background on there.. maybe a solid blue color but it shouldn't be distracting from the text and numbers with a lot going on.. it could be well layered just not distracting.

name on the bottom works... if we have a banner at the top with the slogan (which could be done via a poll after we get some ideas out there) that would work well.

I think we can come up with a better idea than Zombie, but I'm down.

Girardi.

Cool, I like the zombies more than the moustachios. Either way, I'd like Dawes. Here are a couple photos to choose from.

Thanks in advance!

Here is a spin off of my last template... the font style will be different but this would be the background in theory...



as always i am open to anything.. my initial thought is maybe the red is too bright??

we can also go with no bkg... whatever the board collectively decides... zombie theme or other theme...

I think if you add a little shadow to the blood it will look better. do you know what i mean?
more "3-d"-ish

i agree with the simple is better.. just do the player, his number, and the slogan "16 Wins Later" at the bottom..

no need for the blood or that different background. i say stick with what Hemlawk has..

Yeah, I think the "16 Wins Later" is an awesome slogan.

I'm mixed on the zombie idea, but I think in such a short time we probably won't come up with something better, so I think it's a go.

Something like that could be fun, with a playoff tag line.

I would like Zombie Mara and I will provide a picture to make your life easier, however I am having trouble finding one so I just wanted to go on record of calling Mara. Picture soon to come!


p.s. Do you think that the Rangers could afford pants without rips in them?



This is the biggest clearest of Mara I could find. I like it especially because once Zombie'd he'll look like he's about to eat Crosby's brain haha.

Edited to leave in only the picture I want.

If we're definitely going with the zombie theme, this is the pic I'd like to use for mine. If not, disregard it.

The bigger/clearer the picture, the easier it is. Plus it will look better in the final product.
I wish I could find a high quality NYR gallery.

Is it okay to have different pictures of different players? Or are we limiting it to one player per used avatar?
