Buffalo Eye - Enroth Graphix Of Buffalo - Jhonas Enroth, Buffalo Sabres, NHL, 2011
David about the design:
It is so fun to paint for Jhonas, he is very interested in his masks and loves details, just as I do. I love to play with a wide range of different paint techniques, with everything from classic airbrush to old school brush and even crayons.
Usually Jhonas always wants a brickwall as a part of his designs. Now we´re testing something completely new, and we´re going back to basic. The two big B letters on the forehead of the mask are placed as the eyes of a buffalo and transforms the mask into a graphic Buffalo, and from distance it creates interesting lines. The rest is created with lots of old school effects and lots of details, mixed with top modern 3-D effects. On the sides as a funny detail you find Buffalo Bill created in old graphic style.
Thank you for your interest.
