Here is Polak, Oshie & Backes. Oshie is definitely rough, but its a work in progress.

They will all look similar when complete. Bed time.

Good stuff! I'll take a Bergie one when you get around to it.

The Oshie one is unrecognizable, but the other two look great.

I'm not really liking the players smiling. Thinking we have to with some kind of scouling look. Thoughts?

Also, it would be great if some of you guys helped me find some of the players, as it still requires quite a bit of work and I'll only have a few hours tonight to put these things together.

If someone wishes to help, start a google images search for players preferably a large image of a closeup of the face. Maybe go alphabetically backwards, so start with Tarasenko and work your way back, and I'll start at Backes.

Thanks to those who help.

Agree about the smiling, that kinda ruins it. Some guys are harder than others to get a good face view head on and not smiling, especially Tarasenko, Shattenkirk, Porter and Perron.

Shattenkirk, Porter I couldn't get good ones.

Tarasenko maybe
Tarasenko maybe if goatee obscures upturned mouth corners

Steen
Steen maybe

Perron, maybe
Perron, maybe

McDonald

Russell

Sobotka

Schwartz

Stewart

Reaves

Oshie

Nichol

Agreed that some are easier to find than others, Backes has a ear-to-ear smile in every damn pic.

Also, it's quite hard to make the players recognizable and look like Walt at the same time. If you use Walter's mouth and goatee, it doesn't look like the player anymore and vise-versa.

Thanks for finding those P9s!

Really like the prototypes. Shattenkirk is another that is smiling in all his pics. Here's a close-up one of him not smiling, but he is wearing the visor.

It'll definitely be easier if we can have visor shots. The one I suggested for Oshie has a visor. They all smile.

Finally came across a good image of Porter, but it's in a video. A good shot of him is 0:50 seconds in where he's looking right at the camera. Not sure how to get a pic from a video on here, but here's the link: http://video.blues.nhl.com/videocent...sole?id=135200

I feel like a stalker

Here is the initial design I came up with. I can still make changes before I start saving with all the different players.

Let me know what you think and what changes we should make.

Love it so far.

Just like SirPaste said, add the playoffs 2013 logo and then we can start playing with different quotes/themes from the show.

Yeah, they are turning out great! I agree with the suggestion to add the 2013 playoffs logo. Seriously good work and I'm looking forward to rocking a Shattenkirk version

I'll take a Pietrangelo one if you get time.

Clock is ticking! Sorry, I'd do it if I had any skill whatsoever.

If we are adding quotes, please throw some out there. One for each player and I'll add them tonight.

With the addition of the 2013 NHL Playoff logo and Quotes where do I put them? I can put the quotes beside the player, but I don't think the Logo will fit in the "Crystal Blue Persuasion" Slide, at least not big enough to be legible. Sooo.... Do I remove the "Crystal Blue Persuasion" slide or "Hitchenberg" slide to add in the Playoffs logo? Thoughts?

Regardless, I should have these done by late tonight unless I have to make up all of the quotes for the different players myself.
