Ypres

Share

So I might have picked up Battlefield 1… I have to say, it’s everything I had hoped. My only complaint is that, like any multiplayer oriented fps (Halo and Gears aside), the single player lacks cohesion and a sense of continuity. However, the stories are engaging, fun, and at times, visceral. (oh an the multiplayer’s good too)

SO

It got me in the mood to paint a scene inspired by the first world war (namely the third battle of Ypres). In which, I wanted to illustrate the special type of hell that war was. A often forgotten fact that gets swept up in the romanticism of the conflict.

As always, I appreciate any questions, comments, or critiques.

Hell on Earth created by humans. Needs some gasmasks and iprit victims maybe, for the whole picture.

MacOFlannigan responds:

Yeah, I wanted to include mustard gas too, but I came to a point in the picture where I had to choose between gas clouds or a dog fight lest the picture become to cluttered, so I went with the dog fight. If I revisit the setting I'll be sure to involve a gas attack.
