Wonderland Vietnam '69 by PenUser Wonderland Vietnam '69 by PenUser
Ah... Vietnam of '69 at night.

And a Vietkong ambush.

The guy on the ground just didn't strike lucky this time... :(


Made with markers and added a photofilter with CS3 to get the lighting correct. Music for this piece was "Brothers in Arms" by Dire Straits"-

"Now the sun's gone to hell
/And the moon's riding high
/Let me bid you farewell
/Every man has to die..."

Great piece.
Looking through what's going on inside of those mens heads as opposed to the facade of tougness they have to show.

Thanks! :)

I figured it'd be nice to make a piece that portrays war more accurately than the macho stuff that has become so popular these days. I wanted the soldiers to look more like normal humans who get emotional wear and fatigue like everyone else in this one. I suppose it worked.

My husband is a soldier fighting overseas right now, so this is extremely intense for me.
But it's an amazing piece of artwork.

Tsiisös tässä on niin kaunis ja herkkä tunnelma ;A; Sommitelma toimii tosi hyvin, ja yksityiskohdat ja taitava tusseinkäyttö on nannaa silmille!
