Red Hong Yi is an artist with a knack for creating work with unusual objects. When she's not using chopsticks for her designs, she's picking up a soccer ball, dipping it in paint and illustrating famous players taking part in the current 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The players illustrated by Red Hong Yi in this work include Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar, all of which have details that it's hard to believe were completed with a soccer ball (or football depending where you are from). There are some details that Yi chose to do with her feet, which is completely understandable since the details would be almost impossible to do with a ball alone. The work comes at the perfect time for the FIFA World Cup.
