Since we're a couple of games into the new football season and inspiration is high, I felt like doing some colourful bits of art.
Richard Swarbrick has made an awesome 2D animation called El Classico and more recently an advert for The Sun featuring Wayne Rooney's (ok) overhead goal. Individual frames of real footage had been coloured in to create this stylistic and simplistic looking animation that just seem to capture the essence of football and passion of the sport, and it did these use few coloures and brash strokes. Every since i was introduced to Richard Swarbrick's work a while back I have always wanted to emulate it, even if its just a few seconds of animation. So I thought I best get practicing, and here are a few quick paintings of Liverpool's Luis Suarez.
