Working with polygons

I was inspired by these awesome illustrations by Julian Burford on dribbble the other week and decided to have a go at using polygons for some ideas I had of my own. I wanted to capture the James Vaughan celebration of karate kicking the corner flag, an image that seems more like a distant memory these days following his numerous injuries. I was looking for something a bit different than just a straight forward flat illustration and this style really appealed to me.

I really like this technique and think it's one I'll certainly revisit for future projects. Here's another example I did, not of anyone specific this time, I just took a liking to the shape of the player and the perspective of the ball in the foreground.
