Lionel Messi isn't the only person who can stunt with a soccer ball. "Red" Hong Yi's skills will put both artists and soccer players to shame. Not only can the Shanghai-based artist kick around a soccer ball, but she can do so to make art too. That's exactly what Yi did to create her latest masterpiece.

Equipped with eight different colored paints and a soccer ball, Yi bounced and rolled the ball between her feet to render her portraits of soccer stars Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, and Messi. Impressive, right? Each player is immediately recognizable, as Yi has depicted them in their varying jerseys and physical features. 

Watch the magic unfold below:
