Richard Swarbrick's CR7 Animation Tribute

Richard Swarbrick is one of the hottest names in the animation game and he's nailed it again by hand-painting over 1100 sketchbook pages following Ronaldo's career from Manchester to Madrid.

Swarbrick or @RikkiLeaks as you may know him is the leading animator in the football industry and marked Cristiano Ronaldo's Ballon d'Or nomination (which he later won if you haven't heard) with a series of sketches marking his career highlights from his time at Manchester United to running riot at the Santiago Bernabeu. Beautiful work once again, topped off with Swarbrick making the trip himself. Hope he's got a gold pen for his next piece...

Perfect excuse to watch his 2014 World Cup re-cap animation again. Follow him on twitter @RikkiLeaks if you're into that kind of thing.
