Both Skyrim and Fallout are often requested by fans of the acclaimed Bethesda games, so I am happy to deliver a Skyrim jersey design today (Fallout will be done sometime down the road). As part of my ongoing attempts to corrupt every NHL team, the Chicago Blackhawks are given a geeky makeover today.
However the Blackhawks weren’t my first choice, I wanted to use the Ottawa Senators because of the forward-facing Centurion in their logo, but I used that for a Marvin the Martian design recently. That said the ‘Hawks double tomahawk shoulder patch figured in nicely here.
The Skyrim logo is too skinny/tall to be a primary logo, in case you’re wondering why I didn’t run with that. It was my original intention when I started on this design several months ago.
Also this would look a lot better if metallic embroidery was used. Would really make the helmet and axes pop.
Usually I don’t commit to RPG’s because of the time they require, but I made an exception for Fallout 3 a few years back. I was floored by the game, but it kept crashing despite it being the very first thing I installed on a new computer. As a result I quit the game and then skipped Fallout New Vegas and Skyrim, fearing the same experience. Admittedly I really feel like I am missing out on Skyrim. Maybe one day.
No plans to make this available.
Sorry for being 25 days late. I’ve been super-busy. So here are the 3 designs selected by voters. They are now available at the Rinkgear store for $95 each (plus shipping), until June 30th (the offer is now closed, GoT jerseys will be back in the fall). And here we go:
First up is the tried-and-true Direwolves jersey. The requests for this one pour in daily — likely because of the hundreds of people wearing these out and about. I know a few of you were hoping for a white away jersey, but the majority demand the black home jersey. One addition is the sword Ice wrapped in the Stark motto.
I was really happy with the way Targaryen 1.0 turned out (pictures don’t do it justice), and was tempted to just offer that again. But I felt a more Ferrari-like logo was needed for a Ferrari-red jersey. The motto is on the front crest, making this a true sigil.
And lastly, the Night’s Watch jersey. I already posted one design I really liked, but in retrospect it did seem sparse and busy at the same time (quite a feat). “Rangers” as a team name was retained, but the “Night’s Watch” text was incorporated into the front logo. The white stripe represents The Wall. The sword Claw is represented here. The design is a homage to the Oakland Raiders. There is one spot of color here. The Captain’s patch is mandatory for this jersey.
The following won’t be offered initially, but if there is a good enough response it will be made available. I already have a few Direwolves jerseys, so I thought it would be fun to create an all-new 30′s-era design based on this old Chicago Blackhawks jersey.
The docile wolf is indicative of the era, so those used to the demon wolf logo may need more time for this design to grow on them. I’m sure the vintage fanatics will like it.
