Milt Schmidt Drawing

Milt Schmidt (1918-2017)

Sketch of an NHL legend

Milt Schmidt was born in Kitchener Ontario, March 5, 1918 and passed away at the age of 98. He was a WWII veteran in the Canadian military and a Boston Bruins legend, playing from 1937 to 1942 and 1946 to 1955. He won two Stanley Cups, coached the Bruins from 1955 to 1966, and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1961.

This sketch of Mr. Schmidt¬†was done on 8 3/4″ x 6″ illustration paper. I used a black #14 Kuretake brush pen for inking the pencil sketch. Grey markers were used in places on the portrait and a yellow marker with a white grease pencil overlain overtop was used for the background.

In 2017 I created a few other tribute drawings of people who passed away, such as Eugene Cernan.
