*Plays AC/DC "Highway to Hell"* (Unless you prefer something more british like.... Coldplay?)
Well he asked for something close to what
does. So I comed up with the idea of a small group of british SAS trying to make a run for it trough a street crowed with enemy soldiers.
The car is a Land Rover Wolf as used in the British Military. All SAS are wearing uniforms with the Desert DPM along with Kevlar jackets on woodland DPM Pattern 94. An M2 machine gun is loaded in the gunners position while the passenger is firing a Heckler & Koch G-36K with Ironsights-carrying hadle (Normally seen in G-36Cs).
This unit is under heavy enemy fire which is not good if you're in an unarmored vehicle just like the Wolf. But hey it's the SAS... they're bullet dodgers (meh thinks so anyway
While I was drawing the vehicle and I almost made one crucial mistake... the side of the driver. I almost forgot that the brits drive on the wrong side of the street (yeah lads... Driving is on the right side of the street
) so I had to keep in mind to put the steering wheel on the "wrong" side of the car.
All the white-yellow glowing thingies arouns the scenery are bullet-tracers. Yeah... one of them is heading directly towards the viewer. I'm afraid the "camera-man" who took this "shot" didn't make it.
Again this work took me quite more effort because of the amount of details plus the need of not depending too much on other people's brushes.
So all the textures you see in this picture are only the basic ones (Except for the bullet holes brushes which are from
I didn't bust my ass so much for the background since anyway I was to blur it all heavily.
The DPM camouflage was quite a task.... I had to use basic tools only in small size brushes with a heavy hardness level and I had to use them in two modes... normal and dissolve (This last one with a lower opacity level). I used a photo of the DPMs to know more or less how to work it out. The desert one turned out pretty good. The woodland one... not so much. What do you think?
Allrighty... My next project to work on is
I have scanned the lineart of "Why I joined the Deutsches Heer" before finishing my other projects. So you might see that one soon. Hell I already started coloring it so if my mood helps me I might upload that project before being finished with Robotmonkey's request.
I hope you like this project.
Will get to your comments and messages tomorrow morning.
I'll see'ya in the Battlefield!
