Gunships by flyingdebris Gunships by flyingdebris
This was part one of an assignment for class. We had to find to some battlefield type photos and use them as the direct reference for our own production type paintings.

A very nice scenery, well painted.
The barbed wire, even though quite simple, looks very convincing, the design of the gunships is really cool and the soldier is a nice touch. As I can see the gunships and the barbed wire form a nice diagonal across the picture and the soldier and tower in the background a parallel line to it. The end of the fog seems to be a parallel as well. It's also interesting that the soldier seems to be standing on the only spot of green grass on the picture.

Seeing this reminds me of some vietnam era photos I have seen.
From which era/conflict did you take the inspiration for this work?

Simple. Elegant. The use of light and atmospheric diffusion is perfect. At a glance this looks like a photograph. Very well done. I'm loving your style man!

What school did you go to? I need to go back to school ASAP.

? Did the photo that you used happened to be a photo of vietnam war era? Because it has that feeling to it.

That is realy good. The ships and trooper along with hte land are highly detailed. To me this pictuer gives me an idea of a unit of soldiers are in need of supplies and they have one trooper go back and wait for the supplies.

Nice work and keep posting.

awesome pic, but I have to say, having just come back from Egypt, the foreground ship doesn't quite fit the atmosphere, maybe some sharper highlights but slightly hazier overall?
