Yeah, it is a shocker isn't it!? I enjoyed making it for the gradients and the like; same as I loved making the West Coast 'Ochre'... but this Brisbane jumper is just an absolute eyesore. Their 2008 kit has different socks as well, and they are even worse... they have vertical blue and yellow lines that look like straps from old Greek sandals. *Throwing up* Emoji

How do you do it? Do you just put the guernseys you've already made into the template?
No, the jumper on this template wraps around the player, where my standard template is flat.
I guess I do use the same graphics, but I have to tinker with each to get them to fit the player template.

Yeah, I do that with mine... make it all flat first, and then adjust it all to fit the proportions of the templates as best as I can. That would be the one thing I'd change on my template... just the lack or symmetry in it, requires so much tinkering to make it 'wrap' the way it should.

I'd be happy to help out if you decide away kits are something you want to introduce one day.

Next project is to do this to each of the existing Home kits.

Hadn't done a Sydney one yet... so I thought I would attempt one of those. This guernsey had a fair bit of detail in it: Names of all players to play a game in the white of the guernsey (plus members who paid for their name), then the names of all B&F winners and the club logo were watermarked into the yoke, and then finally Bob Skilton's signature is in the white above the yoke. Enjoyed making this one.

NM_Mitchell Here you go mate. Interesting guernsey... obviously a one-off error, but makes it look from an earlier era. I had no photographic evidence for this one, so the sponsors are consistent with what North Melbourne were wearing in 1995, and I just used a narrower hoop on the sleeve so it was similar to the width of the stripes on the guernsey.
