World Cup 2010: Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi, the world best football player of his generation. He born in Argentina and now lives in Spain. He plays for Barcelona and the Argentina national football team.

At the age of 11, Messi was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency. The Argentina local football club River Plate showed interest in Messi's progress, but did not have enough money to pay for treatment for his condition.

Carles Rexach, the sporting director of Barcelona, had been made aware of his talent were able to arrange a trial. Barcelona signed him after watching him play, offering to pay for the medical bills if he was willing to move to Spain.

Therefore his family move to Spain and Messi dedicated himself playing for Barcelona until today.

Messi said:
Barcelona is my life. They have brought me to where I am today. I could not leave, I don't want to leave. I know the Premier League is very good. But I cannot see myself playing in England because my heart is with Barcelona, always.

This sketch was actually the first sketch I dedicate for the world cup 2010. I am trying to express the victory scenes on the fields. The players are so happy with the achievement they had made, as well as the supporters. 

Will they get into the final? It is still too early to tell.

World Cup 2010: The Official Logo in Oil Pastel

The FIFA World Cup 2010 opened at South Africa. I am not a football fan but I am a world cup fan. The sketch below is the official logo for World Cup 2010. By adding horizontal coarse shading, I would like to express the 'movement' and try to makes the sketch appear to be more lively.

This is not the first time I study on Pang Jiun's oil painting, to learn how he express his oriental feel on oil. Here is the first painting of Pang Jiun I study.

By blending the variety of grey on buildings and dark brown and black on the roof is the important parts to express the feel of oriental.

I like to draw fruits, because of the combination of colors as well as the interesting surfaces on the fruits.

By sketching those fruits I learn that star fruit is really hard to draw. Because of the shape and the colors to express the 3Dness of the star fruit.

Well I enjoy painting orange, that is the reason I place the orange infront and hides the star fruit behind.
