King Of Manhattan XXFXifier - Blue Edition - Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers, NHL, 2011
David about the design:
This mask is dedicated to our friend Stefan Liv.
The design is a direct continuation of Henrik's earlier so popular masks. I have painted for Lundqvist for more than 13 years now and it's so much fun and crative. It's been a fantastic journey to follow Henrik from the time as a junior in Frölunda to the super star in NHL that he is today. Together Henrik and I have created and developed his own so characteristic mask look with clear colors, strong contrasts and nice 3-D effects. Designs that create trends. Designs that are perfectly visible from a long distance, but also feature an ocean of detail work when you look more close.
The Statue of Liberty, Henrik's signum on his masks, is placed on one side of the mask, accompanied by Henrik's own logo on the other. Together they create a graphic king's crown that gives the mask it's theme and name. All spiced up with a maximum of bling bling glitter with DAVEART XXFX Glitter. The blue base lifts the glitter to a new level. The extreme detail work and depth effects are obvious, just like the lightning bolts that Henrik has had on his masks since his time in Frölunda in Sweden.
