Summary: They win. Drawn for [livejournal.com profile] merlinolympics



09 - merlin olympics flat



Merlin doesn't realise that the shot's gone in at first, not until he gets an armful of Arthur and Gwaine and everyone else.

"A fucking wizard, Emrys -- You're a fucking wizard! That shot," Arthur screams in his ear. They've done it. Since the first time since 1936, they win gold for Great Britain.



Notes: I love the Winter Olympics!! Wooo go sliding sports!! This is part a tribute to all the hockey hugs ever. As always, you can imagine your own backstory, but mine is that Merlin is brought in to be wing on Arthur's line and he brings magic on the ice. :D

OMG this is so awesome! I think I actually flailed my hands a bit when I saw it. So gorgeous <3

Also, ice hockey is my weakness. Can't wait for the prelims to start later in the week!

Not sure how you feel about capslock, but I'm going to do it at you, so... AHHHHH I LOVE THIS SO HARD! THE COLOURS! THE STYLE! THE CONCEPT!

Seriously, it's got that great feel of vintage sports posters with the colour palette of a propaganda poster (which, whether intentional or not, makes this delightfully subversive) and most of all it is 110% ADORABLE. Thank you.

:D I like capslock!! Thank you so much! For the colors I looked at a bunch of Bauer photoshoots with dimly lit arenas (which is funny because Bolshoy Ice Dome would actually be very brightly lit inside). I don't think I was overtly intending for it to be similar to propaganda posters, but I've studied a little bit of design theory and Constructivism, so that's probably influenced me whether I realized it or not HAHA.

I did intend for the picture itself to stand alone as something you would see as an advertisement or a poster, and some of the color choices were made to highlight certain areas (like the brightest colors near Arthur and Merlin). I'm 90% sure that the actual GB men's national team is a primarily blue/white uniform, but red just looks better for background contrast.

Thanks for mentioning this... I rarely look back at my drawings and think about this kind of thing. ANYWAYS THIS WAS A LONGER REPLY THAN YOU PROBABLY NEEDED, but you made me think about this LOL.

I love the colors and Merlin's eyes and how he looks to be gazing directly into Arthur's. Really beautifully done.
