BASKETBALL - LI-NING ADVERT by alvinlee BASKETBALL - LI-NING ADVERT by alvinlee
Here's two pieces I did for Li-Ning's Basketball campaign. Li-Ning is the current leader in sports apparel in China who also endorses the NBA's Jose Calderon, Baron Davis, Evan Turner, Shaq, & Damon Jones.

Being that I'm a huge basketball fan this was an offer I couldn't pass up on. Plus...I'm Chinese!

The two characters pictured here were loosely based on Evan Turner (left) and Baron Davis (right). Believe it or not all of the effects in terms of the strokes were done traditionally by brush on rice paper. Tobias Kwan then added all of the beautiful digital colors and effects to the piece afterwards. The man is one talented mofo!

I don't understand why it's not the most popular, sometimes i really don't understand the way Deviations are ranked.

Very impressive piece here. While I'm aware of the popularity of basketball in China, it's really unique and refreshing to see the cultural take of the sport in a manner such as this one, not to mention with this level of execution and polish. A combination of some dynamic pro basketball moves (with also a touch of street ball seemingly mixed in) with the Chinese characters and brushing effects really makes this series something I think would have a pretty wide range of appeal to basketball fans the world over, not just in China.

Kudos to you and Tobias Kwan on this effort. :)
