Highway to Hell by Panzerfire Highway to Hell by Panzerfire
*Plays AC/DC "Highway to Hell"* (Unless you prefer something more british like.... Coldplay?)

Requested by :iconemelld1324:

Well he asked for something close to what :icontanyk: 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 =P )

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 :XD: ) so I had to keep in mind to put the steering wheel on the "wrong" side of the car. =P

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. :rofl:

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 :iconredheadstock: ).

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 :iconrobotmonkey91:'s request.
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! :salute:

It's the "K" carbine variant. An easy wat to distinguish G-36 variants is by counting the airholes in the hand guard of the rifle. 2 Holes is for the compact "C" version. The "K" has 4 airholes and the standar rifle version has 6 airholes. The grenade launcher version is a bit more tricky since the grenadelauncher has the handguard integrated into is making the standar and "K" version practically identical except for the lenght of the barrel.

Der DPM-Tarn ist dir in beiden Varianten super gelungen. Die Flaggenpatches sind ein gutes Detail. Könnte wirklich ein typischer Battlefield-Moment sein.

Hehe Danke. War auch ein bisschen stressig dieser Tarnung zu malen. Ohne Brushes die dafur geignet sind ist es nicht leicht.
Aber seitdem, habe ich meiner eigener Brushes für verschiedene Tarnungen ergestellt: Jetzt soll es einfacher sein.

Nice man! Reminds of BF3 right off the bat. Doesn't need SAS to be awesome. Jeep+Guns+Rockets+C4=Total MAYHEM! XD

well, here in HK, we drive on the left side of the road-wait, british drive on the right side of the road? Well, then I don't give a d*nm. And they're only trashing that country a tiny bit, they're taking more damage.
Btw, are you dead after taking this picture?

oh you're right. I wasn't really meaning myself as the cameraman but more like if this had been a photograph, then the photographer would been hit and probably killed. I wasn't thinking of myself but if that's what you want to think then it's ok.

I dig! I also dig your art style. In fact the only critque I have is one of a tatical nature: The fascening of a ruck to the front of the Wolf. Perhaps the Land Rovers are of a much better quality than our HUMVEEs or MRATVs, but were we to place one in front of the radiator, the dammned thing would overhead rather rapidly. (In fact, it's not uncommon for us to have the heater on during mounted patrols, even in temps above 100 F... Another reason I perfer dismounted.) Also, the TC appears in MOPP gear, while the others do not. Artistically, it looks cool- but us Paratrooper types don't wear those dammned masks or hoods unless you order us too... And even then, that's iffy... (Though I have seen SAS guys wear them in CQB situations, I've always wondered if that was to facilitate the use of CS gas by coalition forces... Still, they expose other parts of the body, and if those crystals get anywhere near your pores, you're having a bad day...)

Again, cool as hell, and I'm a bit envious. As crazy as it sounds, I'd dig being able to mount topless; despite the risks of exposure, it has plenty of advantages. =]

like GTA, there are men who fight from cars and it's you who gets to drive, although you also shoot other gangsters in some GTA missions.
