Richard Swarbrick Hand Paints Animated Tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo

Richard Swarbrick hand painted every single frame of the animation in this beautiful new tribute to Ballon D’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.

He then packed twenty five sketchbooks worth of pictures into his suitcase and set off for Manchester United’s Old Trafford home where it all began for the great Portuguese playmaker before retracing his steps to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid where Ronaldo now weaves his magic for Real Madrid.

Accompanied by producer Tom Mallion (those are his hands), Richard shot stills of every illustration along the way, cutting them together to produce the stunning tribute you can watch by clicking HERE. This is a companion piece to the Lionel Messi film Richard created for Adidas when the legendary Argentinian won his third Ballon D’Or in 2012.
