From Japan with love!

Hello I'm Alan, I'll get elbow to my head, so you don't have to. Today we got not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 concept here today! 3 by me and one from a contributor. 2 Japan IIHF concepts, and 2 Osaka Samurai IceHL concepts. Let's get to the concept shall we.

Team Japan World Champions Concept [by me]

All the stripes are simple, nameplate and the numbers are simple. I gave the yoke the Dallas Stars treatment witch I say it gave this concept some nice flavor to it. I made red as the main color follow by black. The logo is the dot with black trim around it, two hockey sticks and Japanese characters for "Japan" to give this concept a good taste to everyone even this concept was in the running for HJC's COTW back in June.

Team Japan Olympics concept [by me]

On this one is again simple with some goodies I put on this concept. I paced both Japanese characters, and word mark "Japan" on the arm stripes, made the logo base on the rising sun of Japan, and as always replacing the stupid fake lace with the country's flag.

Osaka Samurai IceHL concept [by me]

Using the same template as my Blenheim Blades concept but with some tweaks and add extra stripes to it. Using the Winnipeg Jets letters, and my Kroftsmann fonts for the numbers give this concept of my complete.

Osaka Samurai IceHL concept [by jake88]
Up points: These really got "cultural" written all over it! Dark jersey gave that "Ninja" feel to it, while the white is "Pride" and looks proud to show it! The fonts for both the numbers and nameplates was a nice touch to this concept.
Down points: Even thou the white jersey got pride on it, but for some odd reason this also got that Carolina Hurricanes vibe on it too, but that's to me.
My suggestion: I got nothing to suggest.

Well hope you enjoy this big post today, because it'll be it for this week because of this week on HJC latest contest that caught my eye and I'm working on it for the rest of this week, but don't worry there will be more posts next week. Lastly don't forget to send in your defunct hockey concepts if you want to be part of October's "Concept of the Dead" event, click the banner for the info on how to send it, not a contest, no rules, just showcasing defunct hockey teams on this site. Until then, I'm Alan, I'll get elbow to my head, so you don't have to.

  1. Hey. These concepts are kick-ass. Really nice work. I ended up here because I'm trying to get an idea of what an international ice hockey jersey from Japan might look like. Personally, I haven't seen one since the Olympics in Nagano. I'm trying to create a team in NHL 17.

    How have you created these wonderful looking concepts? Is there some sort of program or place to do this? I see concept jerseys all over google and some of them look pretty cool. I'd love to get the software or find out how to do this. Thanks so much.
