Soldiers at Rest


One of my first attempts at freehand photo-copying pictures of war. I started it as a way to better my understanding of the feel of WWII pictures, as well as the physical attributes involved, such as the folds in their clothing, and the shading most of all.

Again, this is a pencil drawing of a photograph, and the national archives of the respective country holds the rights to the original photograph. I have simply drawn the photo. I do not want any misunderstandings there.

That aside, I plan on submitting a few more of these.

Wow nice

So this was really cool, I like the realistic feel of this whole piece its very real maybe too real and such you have trully impressed me with this piece I think you should ad some borders on it but overall this was pretty good and a decent art piece for the ages, so nice work here.

I think you should ad some borders on it


Just Pure Awesomeness

Love the detail on this picture. The shading is phenomenal and the expressions are beautiful. The pull off the mood of this picture and really make it stand out and touch the hearts of the viewers.
Great Job

Sat for an hour examining every detail

This is amazing! What wonders a simple pencil and perspicacious eyes can make, it's just.. can't find adequate words to describe it. :)

i know people are gonna hate me for this but

the facial features to me are not as realistic to seem life like not the hands in the drawing but other then that the details are really good

blown away

This looks like a picture! Its so life like!

oh and @ stoarfeash

We must have sympathy for both sides, were all humans, remeber that Mercy should be a way of life.
