His OCs Cpl. Victoria Yeoung and Cpl. Simon McNeil. Both are on patrol on an empty road near Kandahar in Afghanistan. Behind them is a LAV III of the Canadian Army.
First Deviation featuring Canucks! And about time. The Canadians have been mighty absent from my gallery until now. Also, this is the first picture I make for DeviantArt since May. Until now I've been just sketching or doing some projects for the drawing classes of which I only submited one picture. But it's refreshing to be doing my very own stuff once again.
The only thing I don't like about the picture is the screwed up and detail lacking LAV III. It seems I'm not good at drawing APCs or I've lost practice.
Anyway I kinda screwed up the perspective and proportions of the vehicle. That happened because I have drawn Vicky first and then the LAV III behind her when I should have done the opposite.
Oh well, it's not a total disaster, still looks respectable I think. Another mistake I made was Simon's C9 Machine Gun. It was suppoused to be a C9A2 but I ended up drawing an older C9 variant.
Ahhhhhhhh but everything else should be about right.
But again I'm overall happy with how it turned out. I will be uploading the pencil only version in the scraps section so that you guys can see the starting point of this project.
All the textures here were made using PhotoShop's brushes (The ones that come by default with the installation) and the camouflage patterns (CADPAT AR and TW although they're not so easily distinguishable in this picture, kinda looks like MARPAT) were made using my very own digital camouflage brushes.
I hope you guys like it. I'll be taking a little Christmas break and on the 26th I'll be back to work on more drawings.
And See'ya in the Battlefield!
