My love for soccer prompted me to complete this series of illustrations with great zeal. First of all, big thanks to the creative inspiration by @Leo Natsume! I especially like this feature of the characters summarized in the geometric structure, rich and full of tension, just like Picasso's masterpiece "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon."
Of course, to make breakthroughs on this basis, I compared the head of the character to a cylinder of uniform length and width. At the same time, the geometric and realistic techniques are merged in an effort to make the facial features appear more vivid and energetic.
So, my creations are developed in the following manner: Characters are shaped, then filled in with the height and shape of the eyebrows, size and inclination of the eyes, shape and length of the nose, thickness of the lips, prominence of the cheekbones, length of the chin, and shape of the beard. For example, the facial characteristics of Lionel Messi are summarized as small eyes with a short distance between them, prominent nose, rising mouth, large ears, dense beard, retro hairstyle, etc. By molding these features in a geometric fashion, the illustration not only resembles the soccer star, but also show the star's affinity and warmth.
I hope you enjoy my creation. Thanks again to @Leo Natsume and @Daniel Nyari.
