Dimitar Berbatov, who shows of his effortless skills on the football pitch, also happens to be quite an artist. It seems that the Bulgarian striker is a stand-out performer when it comes to sketching.
Berbatov is best known for his laconic artistry on the pitch, but over the last year or so he’s used Facebook to show off the artistic pursuits contained in his sketchbook. At least, the ones that aren’t too sensual for social media. Berbatov has a passion for drawing caricatures of famous people, including the likes of Tupac, Bruce Willis and Marlon Brando in The Godfather.
Some of the sketches posted by Berba on his facebook page:
"When i see something on the web,and i like it,i try to draw it..In this case..one of my favorite hip hop artist..Snoop Dogg..if u like it,i’ll put some more:)" — April 3, 2012

We’ve definitely seen Berbatov make that facial expression on the left before. These are the characters that have influenced his own style of being.
"Quick drawing..:))..The best movie ever..:))))hahah" — February 25, 2013
Berbatov’s appreciation for The Godfather is well known. He says he learned to speak English by watching those movies. And he also does a pretty good impression of Don Corleone. See Berba’s mimicry of Don Corleone in the video below:
