Friday's Rugby Face is an original art project by Ronnie which features internationally capped men's rugby players (chosen from his followers' suggestions each week).
Original mixed media artwork by Ronnie McInnes No.13 - Conrad Smith © 2020.
Friday's Rugby Face is about celebrating some important players, big characters or inspirations from men's rugby union. Partly influenced by Pop Surrealism, I usually tie something into the narrative that has been inspired by video games.
The artwork was made by using a combination of long exposure (light painting) photography and digital art techniques. This is the thirteenth piece from the project and features New Zealand rugby player - Outside Centre - Conrad Smith. 
This ex NZ international was not only a very clever player with a great rugby mind, but he is a qualified lawyer too. Here I present Snakey Smith breaking through a defender's tackle.

This week, for my video game inspiration, I picked L.A. Noir. The main protagonist in the game is a 1940s detective. Admittedly, that's a different kind of law-person, but still, a very clever one and I like that. So, I have loosely outlined a hat, tie, shirt and suit jacket similar to what the detective wears in the game.
