Inspired by Alex Ovechkin’s exuberant celebration after his OTGWG against Buffalo, resident RMNB artist Rachel Cohen decided to do us all a huge favor and capture Ovi’s nifty dance moves in her latest illustration above. Cohen, a sophomore illustration major at the University of Hartford, initially sketched the idea out by hand. Once completed, she then scanned it directly into Photoshop and then coloured it in using the vector pen tool. Eight hours and a bottle of theraflu later (the changing of the seasons have been getting to her), she was done! Pretty incredible work if you ask me. Make sure to view the rest of her online portfolio here and leave her your thoughts on The Ovechdance in the comments below. Great job, Rachel!
