ST. LOUIS - A 20-year-old illustration student in Scotland just created one of the most amazing drawings you will likely ever see.

Rebecca Thomson, a self-taught artist studying at the Universty of Dundee in Scotland, completed a pencil drawing of St. Louis Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo hoisting the Stanley Cup following the Blues' Game 7 victory over the Boston Bruins last week.

The project, which was posted to her Instagram account, took about 30 hours to complete.

"I've been drawing since I could pick up a pencil but only got into drawing portraits about six years ago," Thomson told "I started drawing portraits of players of my local team in Scotland, the Fife Flyers. I think the reason I'm passionate about doing it is being able to combine my two favorite things - art and hockey. The support from people has been unreal throughout."

You can view the finished product, including a time lapse of the project from start to finish, by viewing the tweets below.
