Another of the photo-copy thingamagigs.

This one is actually of modern day WWII Reenactors.
The photographer graciously allowed me to draw some of his reenactment photos, and this is the first of em'.

Fantastic.

It almost looks exactly like a photograph. It's hard to tell the difference.

Haha, it sort of made me laugh, just because of the soldier's expression, and it looks like he is receiving shocking news. It created a mental caption.

"What do you MEAN Hitler shot himself?"

Great photo, but the faces bother me a bit

This is a very impressive drawing, but in my opinion a bit lacking compared to your other WWII drawings. I say this not due to any flaws in the detail, nor really the subject matter. The issue I have with the subject of the drawing is that it is depicting reenactors, as opposed to actual military personnel (from a historic photo). Being reenactors, the men in the photo you used as a basis for this excellent drawing don't look anything like what you'd expect to find in a terrible urban battle.

They certainly do look like Germans (the man in the foreground has that Teutonic look), but they look like the SS one would have seen in 1940 as opposed to 1945. It's a minor quibble that is not worth detracting a point for. Your other WWII drawings portray the soldiers as one would expect them to look (and is also corroborated by historical pictures).

Other than that, the drawing truly showcases your talent, and is artwork I would definitely buy a print of if you were selling it.
