Ryan Miller by nazgul252 Ryan Miller by nazgul252
STOP - Miller time B-)

Buffalo Sabres' goaltender Ryan Miller.

Although not as epic as :iconbiondoart-dot-com:'s version, it was still fun to do. That's the thing with these. I used to have no patience with digital art, but I actually like doing the portraits.

Anyway, I chose him next because they were here in Montreal about a week ago and I really enjoyed watching him. For a mostly abstract design, his mask is one of the better ones in the league, by far, and the colour scheme is absolutely gorgeous (although I simplified alot of the detail here). It helps that Buffalo's colour scheme is fantastic as well. I know a lot of people call the new logo a peanut butter smear, but I for one really like it.

For something that took around 9 or 10 hours, this could have been better, but I'll try not to nitpick.

As a work in progress:

Nabby is next :)

Ryan was the main goalie for the Silver Medal winning U.S. Hockey Team in Vancouver for this year's Winter Olympics.

The first thing that caught my breath were his facial features and his hair. Especially the bit on the left side. It's so shiny and holy shit it looks so realistic and... Well... HAIR-LIKE! XD

I don't know what to say. I don't want to be like OMG IT'S FANTASTICALLY EPICALLY AWESOMELY EPIC because you're probably getting bored of those kinds of comments. :'D

BUT I HAVE TO SAY IT BECAUSE IT REALLY IS SO FANTASTICACLLY EPICALLY AWESOMELY EPIC.

Another fantastic piece. <3
