Soldiers by curlyhair Soldiers by curlyhair
I think I can finally show this one. It's a freelance painting and it's showing precisely what I've been asked to paint. The atmosphere was the most creative part of the painting I think and I've made my boyfriend walk back and forth a couple of times to understand the postures of walking man. It's not so easy apparantly hhh A lot of killing details,please check it in full size. And of course it is strictly copyrighted
All the references,textures and materials were provided by the client.

Haha At our army considered a cool thing to go with sleeves up - even if it's really cold, it shows that you are so cool, you never getting cold. I was stupid like that for a long time XD But at least cold wind always helped me to wake up. - it's really helpful when you're sleepy, and in army you're always sleepy XD

I feel touched. Thank you for such a honored feature. I'm a soldier too,you know. Not an American one though :) I was commissioned to make this piece, but somehow I felt that it's close to my heart too.

Ооо! Крутые :) Не очень понятно, зачем они идут в сторону безжизненных гор, но это видимо не ваша вина, а заказчика уже... Да и малоли, что там в горах прячется =)
