No this isn't a post about what the ring actually looks like. But it is about a nice couple of drawings I made last night at was because I spent a few hours looking at previous Super Bowl rings yesterday!
Folks can tell I have drawn a lot of my inspiration from the early super bowl rings (numbers 2 and 3 for the packers and jets) with the football design that the seahawks logo is resting on. That backdrop would likely be a bunch of tiny diamonds kind of like the Tampa Bay bucs ring so that way the blue and gray of the logo can be precious stones. Flanking the ring on the top and bottom is the phrase world champions that so many other rings have. Flanking the other side of the logo are 12 of the tribal feathers that grace our uniforms. No other ring has something like this so it makes ours totally unique.
On the side, each players name (no player number though because then the design would be too different for the folks who are simply listed as "staff" or like John Schneider don't have a jersey number. Below the name, the Lombardi trophy with the xviii numerals and the score of the game. The trophy is somewhat similar to the design of the side of the Packers 2010 Super bowl ring but different in that the score of the game is also above it.
On the other side, I chose the name of the team as well as the 12th man flag. Many other super bowl rings have the stadium on their rings, however our stadium design is on the side of our 2005 nfc champions ring and given that has the best angle of our staium, I didn't want to reuse the design or use an inferior angle. Plus the 12th man traveled very will with the team (the superbowl comes to mind..) so the stadium should not get credit for the fans.
Underneath The Ring "We All We Got. We all we need" because that has been a rallying cry since 2010 when Pete Carroll got here.
So tell me guys, what does your design look like? As you can see, I'm not what you call an artist. If anyone wants to make a decent rendering of what it would look like, they are more than welcome to.
For reference here is a link to multiple views of super bowl and losing teams championship rings that I reference in my article: http://www.sports-rings.com/gallery5.htm and here are some pics from the info website so you can see all the rings on a single page: http://www.nfl.com/photos/09000d5d82618287/09000d5d826186c3
Also, this was exceedingly difficult to do from a kindle fire hd tablet. Otherwise it would look a lot more refined in terms of the links and pictures. Thanks for reading
