Today we have the pleasure to present the Columbus Blue Jackets keeper Sergei Bobrovsky's latest bucket. The whole design can be summarized in one word; a wall, or more precise, a brick wall. :-)
Sergei wanted the mask to be created as a very strong and solid brick wall. No cracks in the wall what so ever. I loved the idea, a classic theme for a goalie.
My idea was to transform the whole mask into a brick wall in CBJ colors, and the design is put on the brick wall as old school posters. I built this design concept as both a tribute to his new team, his new homeland and also his motherland. I immediately got green light to start and had so much fun when I created it.
Just as usual it is pumped with details and lots of 3-D effects, a treasure map of details all over the mask, just what I love to do.
Bobs, I love to paint for you!
