Peak early seems funny, if we win the presidents trophy I'm all for the Lincoln stuff.

I know Relyt had an idea 2 years ago he never showed to us

It wouldnt work anymore... I like the peaking early ones though. Everyone's defense to our historical run earlier this year, was just that.

We should do a new theme every round. Start with presidents, end with peak too early during the cup

yeah, peak too early and then go out in the 1st round would just prove those fools right and they wouldn't be fools

I like the peak early theme, as that was pretty much all that was being said on the main boards for the first half of the season.

And it's being labeled as accurate now, since the Hawks have had trouble maintaining the same pace without two of their best players

I wonder why I bother to post there.

I just worry about the embarrassment that the peaking too early theme could lead to.

But we seem like a big group of gamblers, so **** it!

Alright, you have peak too early, now you need to deliver that. Translating that message into funny pictures will be tough though. To me, the images are more important than the overall message. It can likely be done but there is a lot of work to be done to come up with a full set of good avatars for this theme.

What's funny is this could all just fold in together.

Lincoln -> Presidents -> Mt. Rushmore -> PEAKing...

Cool, thanks. Pittsburgh has theirs up and running already so if anyone else wants to make some up and have a vote that's cool. Or, just say **** it and go with these ones. Wouldn't shame me in the least if we had an early exit again anyways.

First, super job.

Some observations or suggestions -

I like the "I dont always Peak" and pics. Those are super.

Im not that crazy about the Indian drinking from the cup. A bit cartoonish and perhaps pretentious since the Hawks havent won.

Four feather colors look washed out. A better pic would look better imo.


One suggestion is the phrase "Wire to wire". In horse racing, this is for a horse that leads from start to finish. Dont know if anyone likes it and no clue what pic to use. If its done, I wouldnt use a horse.

Looks pretty cool. I'll be snaring one of those soon no doubt. Since its becoming a brainstorming parade:

I like the feathers and would be ok if they were washed out even more actually. It has a cool feel with the colors fading.

Maybe put the 2013 Playoff logo with the one of the City skyline instead of text?

Images look a little morphed, I'm sure people can help you find player images and crop them for you though so that isn't anything of concern.

Good stuff though.

Yeah, there are plenty of player images that around the right size but everything that was full body + a suit was huge. It was either I crop it and you just get a face shot or I just say **** it and re-size the smallest thing I could find. By themselves they don't look too horrible but the morphing is more obvious when you look at the .gifs side by side.
