For Kari Lehtonen’s new mask after being obtained by the Dallas Stars, Dave Gunnarson produced a remarkable Clint Eastwood tribute – some incredible photorealistic work.
Daveart tells it best:
“The whole design is created as an old fashion film poster for a cowboy film. On one side we see Mr Eastwood motifs created in sepia look and golden tints, one with a young Clint and one with a slightly older. The design is created with a fantastic depth, strongly inspired by Eastwood’s films, in particular the great film Unforgiven.
The golden base changes into green as we take a look at the other side, where the Dallas Stars logo makes its mark and creates a cool look to the whole. On this side you can also see a motif of Clint with an ox whip, just like in the film, painted with old school oil paint tech.
The final touch that makes the design complete and creates a new smashing hit design for Lehtonen is the addition of the bullet holes here and there. A design with extreme detail work created with freehand airbrush technique.”
