Leon Draisaitl – Edmonton Oilers
Posted 2 months 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.

Working with Simon was wonderful. He communicated very quickly and clearly, paid amazing attention to detail, and really made sure to capture the feel we were looking for in a picture. Incredibly talented artist and overall great person.
