Logo just isn't cooperating with the door. I think the door pattern messes with the contrast of the logo, and it fails to look natural.

I tried it too, it just doesn't look good. I'm going to do a mock up of the Field of Dreams one.

I have a sweet idea for the road warriors one... Since I recently saw "The Warriors" movie, I would deck them out in Rangers colors. Lol. Heck, the movie took place in the city.

As soon as I get a chance ill work on that one.
Thought it was a play on this:

It's just a quick mockup, but I can't think of anything more creative to do with it. Anyone have ideas?

I think that's good, just make the font a little more legible. Otherwise it fits the theme perfect. I like the sepia effect on the rink, haha.

Here's another door variation, logo added:

If "score from the side" is going to be one of the choices, then at least take away 'yes we can" we're not rolling the 2009 line-up here boys

Much better. It looks good. I like the door frame a lot better.

Edit: Here's a different look. I wanted more sepia on the rink.

We're going to have to do another poll after we get a few mockups done, so people can have examples.

Yeah probably.

We'll just do mock-ups for whatever seems most popular, then let the vote go. THis way we don't waste time on ones no one likes.

Sounds good. You could probably squeeze another frame or two if you made the .gif slightly lossy. I can get away with about 6 frames and 256 colors with around ~25 lossy.

If you do a mock-up of Stepan from the WJC to him in Blue, i'll make it my avatar right now.

If we use that theme, this would probably be perfect for me.

All of these are top-notch, fellas. I like this one a lot.

EDIT: That one is awesome.

"_ is a Torts kind of guy." Like how it brings together the team concept and the coach.

"Build it and they will come." seems to imply we didn't have a home rink or something before this year.

"Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology." seems to be more focused on our medical staff than the team. The walking wounded or something like that would put the emphasis back on the players, but I'm conflicted if that would resemble more strength or weakness. Really awesome mock-up though for the rebuild him one.

the side stuff, even if it isn't getting old now I'm not sure it won't be getting old come playoff time.

I like the "Homemade Jam" idea, just not sure really what it could look like. Also wasn't the one last year food-related? Idk maybe that was two years ago. If it was last year though the superstitious part of me would want to avoid food-related ones this go around.

Last year's "Playoff Push Avatar" was with the pizza inside the Rangers logo shield.

Idea for the jam:



Keeping it simple, might refine the facial cuts if it wins.

Maybe put "New York" on top of "Jam" and "Rangers" at the bottom?

I think the work on the "we can rebuild him" mockup is impressive, but I don't like it at all. First of all, while we've had a lot of injuries, most have been to players we could care less about losing and haven't really impacted us too badly. The only injuries I've cared about have been Cally and Gabby earlier in the year. Prospal not being able to return is unfortunate, but since he never dressed it's just like he wasn't here to begin with. Frolov, Boogie, EC, Dru... never really bothered me much. Second, I just think it looks cheesy to have our players being all half-cybernetic. I'm thoroughly impressed with the technical skill displayed in the mockup; I just don't dig the theme.

Also, I like the "If you build it", "Torts kinda guy" and "Homemade Jam" themes better and also think they'll look more classy/classic. The homemade jam one I think has a ton of potential. I think I'd change it to something like:

1. "A. Anisimov" + Face
2. "Homemade Jam" + Jar/Can of jam
3. "Packed with silly snipes and a solid-two way game", for example... or "Made from 100% natural snipes and impressive size"

But basically, instead of animating the "Packed" - "Packed With" - "Packed With Homemade Jam", it would go from the face, right to a slide with "Homemade Jam" and the jar, to a slide with the "ingredients".
