Vincent Lecavalier Painted Ostrich Egg

Here's my latest project finished. Dion started painting ostrich eggs at the park and let me have one to paint. I was going to paint an animal such as a giraffe or lion to go with the jungle theme at work, but I have a penchant for finding more challenging subjects. I ended up painting Tampa Bay Lightning player Vincent Lecavalier... go figure. I completely wrapped the egg in imagery with 2 action poses, Vinny's portrait, and the secondary logo of the Lightning. I painted it with acrylics and very small brushes. The egg is about 6 inches tall. I think I put about 17 hours into this. I'm not a very quick painter :P

This is the finished egg...


This is the process for pose #1...


Process for the portrait...
