Fog of war by Panzerfire Fog of war by Panzerfire
Requested by :iconrobotmonkey91:

Two soldiers of the Swedish Army are fighting against [Insert random enemy force] in the forests of [Insert random location on Earth].

Both are holding Ak 5 assault rifles: [link]

Not much to say... just two soldiers fighting off an unseenable enemy (Which is another way to say they're in deep trouble =P ). Ence the use of the term "Fog of war" as title.

If you look closely to where the soldier on the left is firing you'll see small flashes which represent where the enemy forces are. If you can't see them... then the title applies perfectly! :D

The Ak5's do look a bit small but that's an issue of perspective... I still have to practice more. :| The STANAG magazine that the right soldier is loading looks indeed shorter that it should be. That was me screwing up again.
Another part I screwed up was the arms of the left soldier. :( They look too small.

I have drawn this before the "Why I joined the Deutsches Heer" picture but I didn't got into coloring after I uploaded that picture =P

The thing that cost me a lot of work is that damn camouflage pattern the swedes have :XD: : [link] That's totally made with the pencil tool. So it wasn't as easy as other patterns I colored.
I guess I should have done some brushes for this pattern. ;P

It's also amazing how I can spend half the time working on details that I will later blur or cover with another layer making them hard to spot. ^^; I need to work on my coloring process.

Anyway... I hope you like this. Now I'm oficially out of linearts to color. I'll see if today or tomorrow I can get into finish drawing those two Leopard 2A6s MBTs I promised a while back. Wish me luck :XD:

And see'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

Cheers. I was aiming for that. I researched the camo, helmets and the weapons so that they would look accurate.

Then 'murica assists while China is surrounding its borders with its damn overcrowded military as well as British soldiers continue drinking tea and shooting pigeons.

Suddenly, Germany drops its sausage and gasps in surprise.

"NEIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN!" Germany shouts as he picks up his MP-40 and starts shooting at everything on sight.

I'm kind of interested in the Swedish Defense Forces, so when I saw the uniforms and AK-5's, I knew these were Swedish Soldiers. The one on the left is really cool, and as far as the arm goes, I can barely notice it. You did really good work on the camo pattern.

Plenty of ways that can happen without having fog involved. In A-stan there are plenty of locations in which NATO forces get ambushed and it remains unclear where the shooting comes from. Lack of knowledge and certainty about enemy's and Friendly's positions it's called "Fog of War". ;)

Anyway I'm glad you like it.

Thanks. In the last couple of years I've been trying to get more and more details done and take into account more and more aspects of an image. The more you work on a picture, the better it looks (This obviously with proper experience).
