Sonic NHL

Sorry for no posts this weekend. I was out of town and didn't have internet service.

Today's concept post comes from Jared Lammi. Jared has an idea for a "Sonic SatAM Memories" series in the NHL between the Coyotes, Ducks, Kings, Bruins, Canadiens, and the Lightning.

Jared also submitted another concept with a Sonic theme, and that is for the All-Star game, with the two teams names being Team Tails and Team Sonic.

I am glad to see that Jared used actual templates for this round of concepts, but there is still quite a bit for him to improve on:

  • No real logos or fonts are used. has every sport logo you can think of, and in my tutorial I give a link to download all of the NHL fonts.
  • Colours don't match actual team colours.(Although adding an additional colour to the scheme may be acceptable like the Islanders did with their previous black third jerseys)
  • There is a lot of pixelation in all of the concepts. If you are going to continue to submit concepts I would suggest once again to go through either my tutorial or Ryan's over at
Not really something to improve but just as a note is that if you are doing a series it helps the viewers to see consistent templates used.

Improve on those things and you will be creating concepts with the best of them. Keep on trying Jared!


  1. I wanted to use my own fonts. Bruins had brown on their jerseys at one time, Habs' scheme matches with yellow added, purple revived for LA, added peach to Tampa's, removed orange and gold for Anaheim and replaced them with brown, brown and grey used for Arizona.
    The All Star Game concept os for the 2016 and 2017 contests.

    1. Also, I know there is NO pixelation in any of them.
