    You can count me as someone who wants to see the Washington Redskins change their terribly offensive name. I heard this suggestion a few days ago and ran with it. I'm not sure it's perfect yet, so let's hear those comments.

    I forgot to mention: The side of the plane represents the spear logo once used by Washington.

    Dude! This is beautiful man. Love it. Like those notches in the front of the plane, good use of negative space. Propellers look terrific too. I think planes might find this offensive, though....jokes.

    One a very minor side-note: I think there is a little point sticking out underneath the bottom of the plane from the starburst part, I would just delete and you got yourself a winner. Sorry, I am a stickler...

    You're getting better quickly. Again, great work.

    Quietly followed your thread -- this is great. Awesome to see the evolution from start to finish, too. Nice work, Mark!

    The rendering is beautiful but the logo lacks the action and drama I associate with WWII fighter planes and pilots. Put the plane in a sweep or a dive, make it look like it's a in a dog fight and you've nailed this. I know the current Washington logo isn't overly dynamic, but take a look at what Fraser Davidson did with his version, the low camera angle adds tons of drama without having to go cartoony, do something similar here and it's solid (burgandy &) gold!

    i like your taste in fonts. i used FatCat for a Redskins concept a few years ago :)

    i think as far as this concept goes its executed really well. but the color application is a bit off i think, theres just so much maroon (burgundy?) nothing really feels like a primary focus. if you made the plane body (and maybe the propellor too) white or silver it would seperate it from the back a little and make the whole thing stronger.

    i also think the name could work with Native American imagery, i'd like to see that done too
