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.15 - Leigh Halfpenny © 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 fifteenth piece from the project and features Welsh rugby player - Full back - Leigh Halfpenny.
This time I picked the classic Pacman video game as my inspiration. Leigh's catching is very impressive, especially on a high ball. He seems to get about two feet of extra height compared to the opposition players, even if they are taller than him. So I present Leigh running around the corridors, catching all the rugby balls. But wait! Is that a yellow ghost on our right?

Leigh had recently lost a front tooth which will no doubt have been fixed by now, but I thought it both fun and relevant to include that in my artwork. If you look closely enough you will see the gap in his front teeth.
