Just To Freak You Out XXXIV

Time again for me to try to freak you out with some of the crazy stuff people send to me. We've got a theme for this one, though.

As you know, we're currently in the midst of the Tournament of Goalie Masks. It's pretty cool and it's made a lot of people look at goalie masks in a different way. I'm not really sure how to describe these next couple of graphics. They're not so much concept art as... freaky.



Yeah, that's an astronaut's mask on Cam Ward.



Right, a welder's mask on Marty Turco.



Ah, and a diver's mask on Jean-Sebastien Giguere. That's just trippy. Wait it gets worse.

Stare at this a little while.



I'm pretty sure a bunch of Leafs and Sens fans just swore off this blog. It's just so... freaky.

Speaking of which, ever wondered if Luongo can pull off purple?



Yeah, he can't. I've got an "If They Mated" concept for the Canucks, though.



I like the Rangers' jerseys with the red in them. But now let's get really nuts. If you want First Nations art, why don't you just go all or nothing?



And the answer comes back plainly enough.

We'll stay in Canada as we finish things off this week.



It's an actual maple leaf. Inventive.

That's all. As I mentioned before, I'm probably going to be making the Freak Out Fridays into an every-other-week feature simply because I'm not getting enough stuff sent to me to do it every Friday. But I enjoy these posts when I can write them and I know you guys do too.

Enjoy your weekend and stick around for more news about the changes going down here at NHLToL. Our birthday is just a week away!

Maybe I am just being stupid here, but I don't "get" the picture above the purple Luongo. Can someone explain it to this dumb submarine sailor.

All I could think for Jean-Sebastien Giguere was "Gimme ten Cookie!!!!"

I don't really get the picture above luongo either.

whats up with the spitting goalie?

as for the first one, it's weird, but oddly interesting as a concept that a goalie would have a way to look around and not know where he's looking. almost seems like the goalie would then have a bigger view range with a "mask" like that. a dome of lexan... interesting concept lol

Matt said...

The Spitting goalie is Ray Emery aka Cancer in Toskala's gear. I could only wish that fate upon the Leafs. Chris, I think all Sens fans like myself would like to see that.

To be honest, I actually like the Leafs design. The logo is brilliant, simple and effective.

Washington said...

don't mind the purple luongo. also the ranger/nucks hybrid doesn't look too bad either

Andre said...

The purple Luongo doesn't look all that purple. It's still purple, but more bluey. I probably wouldn't have noticed the difference if purple had not been mentioned. Very nice colour anyway. The colour of the Vancouver sky in the late evening on a nice day. :)

This site is sadly going down hill.
This site use to have concept post like everyday. now we're lucky to get one post a week and now that one post a week is changing to every two weeks!!

I am starting to check the site less and less.

if it takes too much time to make posts u should get a friend to help out with the blog.

Sorry you feel that way, but it's not one concept post every two weeks, it's one Freak Out Friday post every two weeks.

I try to get at least two regular concept posts in each week, but I rely solely on user-submitted material. If folks don't send me anything worth posting, I don't have anything to post. Plus, this blog was never meant to be about concept art in the first place. It was always about the polls.

As far as getting extra help, it's unnecessary. Writing this blog is a labor of love for me and that's how it will be until the day I decide I'm done.

Thanks for the comments and happy voting!

wow, emerys pic as a leaf is saddening, even to a flames fans, but that work done there is amazing.

Phil said...

I'm a Sabres fan, and as such I hate the Leafs (and they're drunken lunatic fans that invace my barn >.<) but not even the Leafs deserve Ray Emery as their goaltender.

Also, the Rangers-template 'Nucks jersey, I think, is awesome looking. I love that style shoulder yoke!
