Shanghai-based artist Red Hong Yi has used somewhat unconventional methods to created three huge portraits of football’s most powerful players...

Using only her feet and a football as tools, Red Hong Yi has created defined images of Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar Jr and Lionel Messi – using a technique that is essentially dipping the football into a total of eight different paint buckets, and rolling the ball around on a white canvas sheet laid out on a football pitch. 

Hong Yi dribbles the ball around with such accuracy that viewers of the video below are able to distinguish who each illustrated player is, based on detailed features as well as the decorated jerseys.
