For this set, I have decided to use a different style on my illustrations, a mixture of my vector and photoshop finish. The figures are bit more distorted with some sharp edges. More gradients are visible too. I was quite hesitant about it because I knew it's gonna take me extra time to finish considering I had to trace my pencil sketch and get the perfect gradient. Unlike my old and trusted style, all i had to do is render them because all the strokes are defined already. But this is for the sake of exploring new possibilities!
AC Milan V Tottenham Hotspurs FC

Real Madrid V Olympique Lyonnais
llustrations in vector. coach José Mourinho, coach Claud Puel, Cristiano Ronaldo and Yoann Gourcuff (argghh! so cute!!)
Arsenal FC V. FC Barcelona
The guys in bowling pins are,Gaël Clichy, coach Arsène Wenger. Coach Josep Guardiola is throwing the ball while Leo Messi is the ball of fire. This was a really fun idea but it mostly leaned on the prediction that FC Barcelona is gonna sweep Arsenal's shiny bowling pin asses (this wasnt't my idea)! And it turned out, Arsenal beat Barcelona's asses! hahaha
