Hockey Hijinks by SleeplessDreaming Hockey Hijinks by SleeplessDreaming
:bulletred:UPDATE:bulletred: I added Drew Miller and Coach Mike Babcock on here. Of course, as soon as I finished this poster and had it up on my ceiling where I didn't want to take it down, the Wings decide to sign Miller. Oh, well, he's cool, anyway. I put Babs on there so it wouldn't be out of balance. If you can't tell, Babs and Miller are colored with a different red than any of the other guys. My red marker died while I was in the middle of coloring Miller's jersey, so I had to color him with a much darker Sharpie. I fixed Pavel Datsyuk's hair, too. He doesn't look like Spok anymore, :iconjellyso:. XD

*Update* Thanks, :iconjellyso:, for pointing out my little goof up of Raf's hair (or lack thereof XD)! I added some more to the top of his head. =D

Yep, this is the entire Detroit Red Wings roster. I should know; I just added Brad May a few weeks ago. XD There are even some Grand Rapids Griffins that may occasionally be called up due to regular player injuries. I'm just waiting for my dad to take this to my aunt, who lives two doors down from Ken Holland, so she can get it signed for me. Let me explain the insanity so you can better understand it: Abby is pretending to shoot Helmer with his stick, and Helmer decides to ham it up with his Sidney Crosby impressions. Drapes is up to his usual tricks, so he's using the hockey version of a "kick me" sign (Cross-Check Me) on an unsuspecting and highly amused Ericsson. Malts is trying to contain his laughter; he appreciates Drapes' devious plans. Pav and Hank are telling jokes in the corner. Nick, Homer, and Coach Babcock are admiring Cleary's talents as a hockey ninja as he tries to break Franzen's stick, while Raf is cheering him on. Ozzie and Jimmy are engaging in a "goalie fight." Kronner is welcoming back two former Wings, Bertuzzi and Williams. Meech and Kindl are shoving each other a little, and Lils thinks it's pretty amusing. Fil and Leino are all, "Pound it, my Finnish buddy!" Lebda and Stuart are just trying to find the coolest pose. Delmore and Eaves are doing the same thing, except they're the Grand Rapids guys. Miller is already sure that they'll win the cup, so he's striking the "victory v" pose. And, of course, May is threatening to beat anyone who gets too close to any of these guys. :laughing:

Team (from left):
:bulletred: Top row: Niklas Kronwall #55, Drew Miller #20, Head Coach Mike Babcock, Andy Delmore #4, Patrick Eaves #17, Brad May #24
:bulletred: Second row: Todd Bertuzzi #44, Jason Williams #29, Brett Lebda #22, Brad Stuart #23, Andreas Lilja #3, Derek Meech #14, Jakub Kindl #46
:bulletred: Third row: Tomas Holmstrom #96, Nicklas Lidstrom #5, Johan Franzen #93, Dan Cleary #11, Brian Rafalski #28, Ville Leino #21, Valtteri Filppula #51
:bulletred:Fourth row (goalies): Jimmy Howard #35, Chris Osgood #30
:bulletred: Fifth row: Justin Abdelkader #8, Darren Helm #43, Jonathan Ericsson #52, Kris Draper #33, Kirk Maltby #18, Pavel Datsyuk #13, Henrik Zetterberg #40

Winged Wheel belongs to the Detroit Red Wings
Art belongs to me

You know what's funny about Datsyuk and Filppula?

Before and after practices when they're playing soccer... If someone drops the ball and they think its a tie or whatever, they'll play rock paper scissors to determine the winner xDDD

I think that's soo funny xDDD


+ the fact Datsyuk shaves his legs.... THEY WERE SO SHINY!!!!!!!!

I brought this up because the pic of Veilo and Filppula reminded me of it xDDD

I got a video of them playin soccer with some other guy on the team (lol not a fan, didnt know who it was xDDD) so i think i might put it on youtube.. But they dont play rock paper scissors in the vid and its only like 13 seconds long :( but anyways i thought it was funny xDDD

Really? Haha, I never knew that. That's pretty funny. XD And wow, I had no idea Pav shaved his legs. That's weird. XD

Maaaaan, you're so lucky that you got to see them at practice. Back here in Michigan, they hold their practices in Traverse City, which is way on the other end of the state, so I don't get it. But in order to get tickets, you have to wait in line for forever and a half. I've never been able to go because of that. XD But I've seen Ozzie dart out of the locker room during games to whip gloves at his teammates or to bear hug the equipment manager. I love that little gremlin goalie. =3

Yep. XD I'm not any good, really, but I do. I'm not on a team or anything because my school is too poor to afford a rink, and I can't think of any nearby teams, but I play goalie out on the lake. Granted, I only have a stick, but I try. I guess that means I'm good at deflecting shots. I'll get pads once my cousin outgrows his. I'm excited. It's the best thing ever. XD

I miss hockey. It's killing me to sit here without a game to watch or a puck to stop. :ohnoes: The only downside to hockey season is the fact that school comes along with it. But I'm really looking forward to this season. Everyone's getting a fresh start, so I'm hoping the Wings give Osgood a lot more games this year than the 20 they gave him last year. He deserves so much more credit than anyone seems to be willing to give. It's like they don't know a great goalie when they see one. Their GM was saying that he hopes Ozzie sticks around another year to push Howard at their training camp. It sounds awful to think that the only reason they want him around is to help Howard out. He can do that and still play.

Osgood has had his days with the wings He has helped detroit win 4 stanley cup in the net they will need him for a couple more years howard has not shown enough to impress me yet.

SleeplessDreaming Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2010
Actually, Ozzie was with the Islanders when the Wings won the Cup in '02. They got him back from St. Louis in '05. But he kicked major ass the other three times around. He was definitely a big factor in pulling them out of the Dead Wing era. I really hope they sign him after next season. He's too great of an asset to let go of. My opinion might be a little bit biased because he's my favorite player ever (take that, Martin Brodeur XD), but I've seen enough to know that he's one of the legends. He's been a major impact on Howard's development thus far, and I hope they realize that. They definitely need him around. Now that half the roster isn't made up of rookies to replace every broken down player from last season, they should seriously consider evening out the games that he and Howard share. There's no sense in wearing out one goalie and leaving the other one to rot.

lol So are ours. We've had a string of nine regular player injuries. Most of them are back now, with the exception of Jason Williams, Tomas Holmstrom, Johan Franzen, and Andreas Lilja. Lilja might actually be returning after a whole year of post concussion syndrome soon. Williams and Homer should be back in a few weeks. But Franzen will be out until after the Olympics. They're barely the eight seed as it is. But they'll be fine once everyone's back. Then they'll be ready to kick some serious butt like the olden days of last season. >:3

Our poor Ozzie (Chris Osgood, mah favorite player evah!) doesn't get to play very often anymore. The rookie Jimmy Howard rocked hardcore while Ozzie had the flu, so Coach puts him in every game. The few games that Ozzie's played in the last month (2 maybe 3) have all been when the D forgot how to play hockey. The poor guy's rusty and has to deal with a mildly retarded D that's obsessed with turning over the puck, so he lets in too many goals. But he might play against the Pens on Sunday since he let in very few goals from them in the playoffs. =D

Thanks! I did the lineart and coloring in three days. The inking took another couple of hours during Art. I was working all night the first two nights. I tried to get it done when I found out we were going to HockeyFest. It started turning into a rush job. I feel bad because Ozzie's my favorite player, and compared to how I draw him normally, I really screwed his head up in this. I never got to see any players, though. :ohnoes: But my aunt took it to Ken Holland. No word on autographs or anything yet. Yay! Someone who figured out that Abby was shooting him and not trying to push him down! :hug:

I'm working on one of those 25 Expressions Challenges using a chibi version of Chris Osgood. lol It's funny, the way I draw him, it doesn't even look like him now that he doesn't spike his hair. ^^;

One thing I gotta ask though, is Bertuzzi on there thice??? On the top left under the poster saying "Welcome back" and on the top right doing the "Men in Black" sort of pose with Eaves? 44 is on both guys, soooo....?
Reply
:iconsleeplessdreaming:
SleeplessDreaming Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2009
No, Bertuzzi is by Kronwall and Williams. That's Andy Delmore doing the Men in Black pose with Eaves. He's #4, so it kinda looks like a 44. ^^;

Alritey. I must say I enjoy this very much, although might I say perhaps one or two things? Dan Cleary is more of a blonde than a brunette. He has the exact same hair color as I do and although it is a dirty blonde, it still is more blonde than brown.

Lebda and Abdelkader's hair is curly and for me it just seems a bit too...straight.

I know it's just little criticisms because those three and Ericsson are my favorite red wings. So along with that I should prolly mention, you got Ericsson down quite well. <33

Yeah sorry if I sound harsh or anything. I just love love love Cleary, Lebda, Abdelkader, and Ericsson.
Reply
:iconsleeplessdreaming:
SleeplessDreaming Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2009
Thanks! Yeah, I started with the blond on Cleary, then added the lightest brown I had, but the brown still completely overpowered the blond one. ^^; I need a better set of markers, I think.

I'm still working on curly hair. I realized that, too, after I inked them. I had some pretty tiny reference pictures, though. I made them bigger on Word, but they just got too blurry, so they had to stay small. XD I honestly think I started to get a little lazy once I got to inking it. I just wanted it done, but I should've followed the curly lines a little bit better. ^^; I was worried that Hank and Ericsson would look too much alike. I'm glad you think Ericsson looks good. =D I had a picture of Hank without his beard, so that's how he is on my poster. I think he looks better without the beard, anyway. XD Homer's goatee thing made me mad. I couldn't figure out how I wanted to do it.

Thanks for the critique! I appreciate it. I'd rather have people point out my mistakes than go easy on me and let me repeat them later. :iconjellyso: thought I should add more hair to the top of Raf's head, so I did. He looks better now. I'll know for next time with Cleary, Abdelkader, and Lebda since my markers won't cover now that the outline is on there. =D I love Ozzie, but he didn't turn out nearly as well as he had in the past. I like him best in my 2500 Hits picture. He looks good in my comic that I'm working on, too. I just wish I would have shaped his head better. Again, I think it was because I rushed it. I got so tired of working on it after awhile that I got lazy. ^^;

SleeplessDreaming Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2009
Thanks! I think poor Jimmy would protest if Ozzie got to fight with a log and all he had was a little goalie stick. XD "C'mon, Oz! That's not fair! You're gonna break my whole face if you keep swinging that thing around like a madman!" :laughing:

lol Helm is doing his Crosby impression. "Hey, Abby, Big E, check this out! Someone elbow me a little." *elbowed by Abby* "Oh no! I think my nose is bleeding! And you broke my ribs! Aaaaaaaugh!!! I think I'm having a heart attack! Quick, someone call a two minute minor for elbowing so I can score on the power play and magically be fine once I'm in the spotliiiiiiiiiight!" *falls and fakes a seizure* They just kept going from there. XD

I got everyone but May drawn and colored in three days so I could take it to HockeyFest. I was actually coloring all the hair and eyes in the car on the way to the Joe. After HockeyFest, I inked them all. Then, they signed Brad May, so I had to add him on there, too. I hope my aunt can get it signed. Maybe I'll make a copy to give the guys if she can get it to Ken Holland.

True, very true... Maybe Ozzy should just go werewolf. :3 Not that that would be anymore fair, but it'd break the height barrier. :P

Beautiful! Don't forget the 'And you guys have to pass the puck just to me so I can score and not feel like the loser that I am because if I lose we won't have butt smex after the game cuz I'll magically start PMSing like I always do."

That'd be so amazingly awsome!!! At least see if she can get Holland to sign it though, I mean, one is better then nothing. :3 You should print off a copy and make them keep it in the locker room. :3 That'd be amazingly sweet!

lol He'd be a blond werewolf. That would be pretty funny to see. XD Normall, Jimmy would freak out at the sight of his teammate turning into a werewolf, but a blond werewolf is just weird. I think he'd laugh hysterically. :laughing:

Haha, exactly! "And since Zetterberg still refuses to love me for the... pffft... beautiful person that I am... *gigglesnort* you guys are gonna... pfffshhh... have to pay even more attention to me than before... pfffbt... because I noticed Flower... pffft... was trying to undress Osgood... pbffbt... in his mind... BWAH HA HA HA HA HA!!!" *Helm falls back to the ground and rolls around laughing* "Okay, now someone else try. I think I'm gonna pee my pants!" :rofl: I can definitely see them taking it that far. XD

That would be cool if even Ken Holland signed it. I want at least one autograph. I hope they want a copy. That would be amazing! =D
