Leon Draisaitl – Edmonton Oilers
Posted 1 year ago and submitted by Simon Carr | Share link: http://illo.cc/92971

Here’s my finished painting of Leon Draisaitl of the Edmonton Oilers. If you’ve been following my work, you’ll know that I’ve never created a ‘sports’ related painting ever. That’s about to change as I wanted to try something new, break out of the stuff I usually do and just challenge myself with a different subject. I also decided to experiment with the retro ‘pixel stretch’ effect to make the painting more dynamic overall. There were a lot of challenges and details to get right with this illustration, but I stayed the course, concentrated on one challenge at a time and I’m proud of the finished painting.

Over the course of several series books, Simon has been an absolute pleasure to work with — he’s talented, professional, and detailed. He deftly translates entirely imagined worlds into amazing works of art that make those worlds real on the covers of our books. His talent speaks for itself in his portfolio and I would recommend him to anyone looking to work with an expert in character and scene illustration.
