Washington Capitals Theme Mask
InGoal has always be proud to bring you masks by Ray Emery’s Anaheim Ducks mask which has received a great deal of attention recently.His design and detail work is amongst the best in the game. Leroux is the man responsible for
David sent along these photos of a Caps themed mask he created for an anonymous private collector. David creates about 10 masks a year for various people who don’t play goal themselves but love the artwork in their homes and offices. Notice that the mask, created by Dom Malerba at Pro’s Choice is missing the vent holes on top and is slightly larger than a game-worn helmet to give Leroux the best surface possible for creating his work.
David told InGoal a little about the design:
He [the collector] asked for the famous Lincoln Memorial with a portrait over it and on the other side he asked for the Washington River Crossing to represent team work along with the American classic eagle. The rest was freestyle creating. Because of the shape of the mask I decided to go with a big Capitals logo on the forehead and the bird logo on the chin. The cage is not the right one because I was only sent the shell to paint.
