Batman in Dallas City - Cristopher Nihlstorp, Dallas Stars, NHL, 2012
David about the design:
I have been working with Cristopher Nihlstorp for many years, and on all his mask this cartoony Batman hero shows up, it´s his childhood hero. So for sure he shows up here on his first Stars mask!
Me and Cristopher talked a lot during the summer how to create it, Cristopher wanted a dark mask, and quickly a plan crystallized with a design with a dark scary feeling all over the mask, with Batman showing up guarding over the Dallas City skyline.
You who have followed Nihlstorp´s mask history recognize a lot of details that connect to his previous mask designs.
Just as usual it is totally packed with effects and details, metallic effects and custom made DAVEART Holographics, just what I love to create. :-)
Thank you all for your interest. Take care.
