Ideal skier silhouette. A call for assistance. - Page 8

post #211 of 247
I like that one much better than the one with the strangely rotated bob. Is that now the epicski coat of arms?

The academy seal is almost two years old now. The new silhouette will replace the old one but that's not all it will be used for.

Here's a seal with an un-rotated Bob:

Yeah, but I was curious if it was replacing it or not. What other swag do you have in mind?

I'm gonna change my mind again and say I really like the Tyroneshoelaces.

You're kidding. That's a statement...not a question. You are kidding. If I'm wrong, I don't care to know.

I would vote for Bob. Maybe we should have a poll?
post #223 of 247
I like the Bob one. Tyrone achieves a very similar angle, but that is not visible from the silhouette.

To put it in perspective, if I was not a member at epic or not a frequent visitor and saw the picture that you are thinking of using in an advertisement for ESA telling me it was going to take my skiing to the next level I would laugh hysterically and there is no way you would ever see me at the event. It would be like advertising a race camp at Mt Hood and using a first year racer as the image for the logos versus a seasoned FIS racer...

Agreed . That is why I tried so many different race-ish images from the beginning.
post #224 of 247
Either is a winner. The only reason I might lean toward Bob is beacuse the images are about the same height so it looks more balanced... either one would work though. It might not be a bad idea to keep both on hand and use them for graphics as you see fit. Example: tyrone works better for use A but Bob works better for use B, etc. Is it likely that if they are not uniform that it will look strange, or will there be enough reproductions of these silhoettes that it will not be noticable?

You got it.
post #226 of 247
Didn`t think I would agree with HeluvaSkier but he makes a good point .The mountain is more balanced with Bobs picture.The current mountain picture seems rather bland next to Tyrones picture.Teton suggestion was a semi joke.Time for a poll.

The tyrone silhouette is a little too large in the example I posted...and I've already corrected that so he and bob scale similarly.

Tyrone scaled down slightly:

It stopped hurting days ago...it's become a rather zen experience at this point.

Now about the Bear.................................. kidding
post #232 of 247
That bear looks rather docile.He needs to be eating a snowboarder or something.
post #233 of 247
thats a bear? I thought it was a bison or something like that...
post #234 of 247
AC actually snuck in over night and changed it back to a Beaver...

That is one well fed beaver. I would hate to be a tree in his forrest
post #236 of 247
Don't shoot me, jstraw! But, what happens if you mirror Bob? It might look better in that seal that way...
post #237 of 247
That angle would make a V,signifying the womb.Saw this on the Divinchi Code.
post #238 of 247
Would be more like Tyrone, it seems to me...

I'll post versions with both skiers reversed in the poll thread.
post #240 of 247
Unfortunately I'm too late to submit this -- that's what I get for not logging in here enough.



I'm happy to see Shoe represent, though.

(Edit: IMG tag doesn't work, I can't make it actually show the picture instead of just the link)
