Road Rage Baghdad by Panzerfire Road Rage Baghdad by Panzerfire
Finally!!!

Road Rage Baghdad is served!
This goes for :iconskunk-works:... Why?
'Cause I got the inspiration for this work from "101st Screaming Eagles" from him: [link]
His one is on pencil... I went a little further with my mine.
You can see that the soldier is from the 101st Airborne Division of the US Army. I put even the Division's logo on his arm and I put the official logo from the 101st Airb. Div. Association. :salute:
I don't care what they say of these boys. Along with the USMC, The 1st Infantry Division (Big Red One), The 1st Calvary Division and the 82nd Airborne Division, these guys are one helluva fighting force. The first in Normandy, the last in Vietnam and the headache of the iraqui insurgency!:D
The helicopters are UH-60 Blachawk and if you watch below the left leg of the soldier you'll see a M1A2 SEP Abrams MBT in a full speed advance through the new capital of war, Baghdad. If Stalingrad was called the capital of War during WW2 then Baghdad will be the one from WW3 (In my comic story yet to begin) ^^;
At the right I put some MEC Vodniks (I think that the name. If not... I'm sorry).
Now... Don't bother telling me that the way the soldier is going down with the rope is probably wrong. I think it is 'cause I put myself in the soldier's position and then I thought that it would be too hard not to fall down and say good bye to this world.
Skunkie draw it like this and I tried not to make it amazingly different from the original (At the end that's what I got. An amazing difference).
I tried to make it as real as possible with shadows, textures and even pasted GIF images (The flag and the logos).
I'm exhausted. This time I won't say how much it took. I don't think you want to hear my complains (Wich is 40% of what I did in my life) :work:

I hope you like it (I would feel a lot better if this one gets lots of :+fav:)
I'll keep drawing but after this weekend. I'm quite tired of working on my drawings and I want to play Battlefield 2. Hopefully I may get to play an Internet game and get some points for my BF 2 profile :winner:

Now that you mention it, it does have an air similar to the initial US invasion of that ME country in CoD4MW.

I thought it was Saudi Arabia, but oviously they couldn't do that.

If we follow the maps of CoD4 strictly, It was not just Saudi Arabia but also Southern Iraq.

If we consider the positions of the maps as simply randomly picking a positon somewhere in the ME, then it could be anywhere.

Some suggest the country could be either Syria or Modern Day Iraq but no one is sure. It's simply known as some fictitious Middle East Country whose geography should not be considered strictly as that portrayed in CoD4.

Hmmmm... I wouldn't know. Saudi Arabia is a major Oil exporter but they wouldn't risk their economy over a game.

how you do your effects, what program do you use and got any useful tips? :)

Panzerfire Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
This particular work as well as most of my first colored artwork was made using Corel PhotoPaint. However the program makes itself pretty complicated to use and althoughy it can carry out more tasks and effect than PhotoShop, it's just too much work. I also think I wasn't using the tools in the right way.

I don't suggest Corel PhotoPaint for coloring... this work nowadays would be an easy piece of cake for me with PhotoShop (Which is what I use now) but back then it took me weeks to work on this. =/

It's amazing the action or dramatic effect one can achieve by just shifting the horizon. ;)

Ah, the 101st. Very infamous in WWII movies. :) I like how you drew the soldier, he looks kinda cute looking down at the ground like that.

Good luck to you in joining the Luftwaffe! :D You know me already, deciding between AF or Army.

Hmmm... about joining the Luftwaffe or the Bundeswehr... it has recently become clear to me that I won't get the chance to join neither of them :( Lots of issues involved.

Thanks for faving it :)

I should draw a new 101st drawing sometime in the future :)

My mother's stepdad was in the 101st in World War 2. He was mentioned in Band of Brothers, "Tab" Talbert if the name rings a bell.

Thanks.

I actually can't do much about helping someone else. I even can't accept many requests. Just a few days ago I had to cancell a big drawing project and I got many angry about it.
I'm a really busy guy... so I can't help you right now. However when I get some time I can send you a few advices about drawing some war sceneries but you can also try asking to people with even more experience than I have like :iconjoewight:, :iconskunk-works: and/or :icontalros:. Believe me... they are on the businees more time than I do.

Really? I never heard of those cel-shaded videogames before.
But I'm glad you like this work. I got to start using PhotoShop in order to see if the colouring get's easier and faster (Not to mention Better).

It'd be cool if they'd swung over a car that's about to be used as a bomb in a marketplace, and the guy could plant some lead in the driver - picking him out among the crowd before he can use the detonator.

Wow! That sounds cool! I may do that!
I picture that scene on my head and suddenly pops in my head a scene from "True Lies" (With Arnold Schwarzenegger) were a limousine is about to fall down from a bridge and the hero (The current Governator) saves her wife from the car befor it falls. I could use that scene as a reference to build the scene you suggest.
It's great idea. I'll see if I can do that as soon as possible. Colours will a problem but I think I'll manage it!
Thanks for the :+fav:!!!
