Art. Caps Hockey. Shenanigans.
The 5th piece for my senior Illustration project (and the final new illustration before my show next weekend).
So for the last 4 years, since I started college, I’d always done an “Unleash the Fury” sign for Caps games, featuring Ovi as “the Russian Machine” since, y’know… “Russian Machine Never Break.” (This year, because of the lockout, I rushed the sign I was going to make, and in turn….. it looked like garbage and not like Ovi at all and will never see the light of Verizon Center.) For my senior project, I decided to take this idea and turn it into a serious, realistically drawn and rendered illustration.
The only major thing (other than the style) that I had to change compared to my signs was the hand/arm. I didn’t have the time to paint a whole mechanical hand, so I gave an impression of it with the metal of the hand partially showing. I also added the machine showing to his neck as well. Finally, the background of the Russian flag is completed by the red in Ovi’s jersey.
I’m so super proud of this illustration, and I can’t wait to hang it with the rest of my work in my senior show that opens next Saturday!

(at some point I’ll have to do a comparison of all my Ovi signs to this. hahahaha)
