World Cup '10
Experimental Painting/Drawings by Bram Vanhaeren
FIFA World Cup 2010 - South Africa
With the world cup coming up, I thought it would be the perfect moment to experiment again. I've selected few amazing players to work with. But as you can see they have no faces, because I believe in a team and not a Star Player in a World Cup. I hope it's going to be a fantastic World Cup with a lot of goals and awesome safes by the goalkeepers. And I wish every country best of luck! May the best team win and don't forget Fair play!

? Experiment

Every now and then I push myself to create some works in a style or with a method I've never done before. And this time I experimented to draw athletes and paint. I've never followed lessons before so I had to figure out how to work with paint and small brushes. But quickly I found it very amusing and relaxing. I worked with pencils and water paint on A3 rough paper. After the painting/drawing was done I played around with it in Photoshop.

After 30-35 Hours work, this is the result.

Lionel Messi (Argentinia)
Fernando Torres (Spain)
Gianluigi Buffon (Italy)
Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal)
Arjen Robben (The Netherlands)
Wayne Rooney (England)
Samuel Eto'o (Cameron)
Dider Drogba (Cote d'Ivoir)
Franck Ribbery (France)
Kaka (Brasil)
Some pictures from the Work In progress and behind the scene. I hope you can appreciate the works!
