I've been wanting to do an illustration of a John Carlson-Captain America crossover for the longest time. Finally got the inspiration and the perfect reference photo for it.
For those of you who don't get the connection: at the 2009 IIHF World Junior Championships, the USA played Canada in the gold medal game. Carlson scored the OT game-winner. Since then he's kind of been an American hockey hero, especially here in Washington. :]
I decided to use the newest design for Capt. America from the upcoming movie, since due to the more "modern" look, it was easiest to merge with the Caps uni.
This drawing was so much fun to create from start to finish, I adore how it came out! 8D
