As you're doubtless aware, Super Bowl XLVII is taking place this weekend down in New Orleans, Louisiana. We spent some time pondering how we could represent our favorite team while staying true to our FPS passions and the answer quickly became clear. Presenting our Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Emblem Tutorial: Super Bowl XLVII Edition!
In this short and sweet video, we will teach you all of the layers necessary to faithfully recreate both the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens logos. We did our best to keep these emblems simple, staying faithful to the original design while trying to minimize the amount of layers needed to put them together. Most of these patterns are available early on, so you should be able to recreate these emblems on any platform if you've spent a good few hours ranking up in Black Ops 2 multiplayer.
For Colin Kaepernick and his San Francisco 49ers, we opted for the classic 49ers logo. It's tried and true and instantly recognizable on your calling card in Black Ops 2. This was definitely the easier of the two logos to create, as the Ravens presented a more unique challenge. To pay homage to the outbound Ray Lewis and his Baltimore Ravens, we decided to recreate the teams alternate logo, with the prominent, front-facing raven. We want to give credit where it's due, this logo was inspired by the amazing work of http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjH-je_pPaE" class="button video-link tip" title="Go to external site" data-video-embed="" target="_blank">Vindictive Gaming on YouTube. We took the design in our own direction, but the team there laid down the framework for us.
