The Days as we used to know by Panzerfire The Days as we used to know by Panzerfire
Requested by :iconkahunasniper:

Him wearing an old Battle Dress Unifom on Woodland camouflage, holding an M16A4 with M203 grenade launcher and a Pentagon MD3R tactical light. (Note: I am not sure if it's recomendable to attach a flashlight to an assault rifle while at the same time having a grenade launcher attacked to it. I am just following the requesters wish)

He is also wearing Delta Force patchs.

I used some photos he uploaded in his deviantart account to try make him look as close as the real deal is.

Next to him is Victoria lying on the HMMWV while wearing the current ('Though soon to be replaced) ACU. On her feet there's a Barret XM-109 anti-material rifle. Similar to the well known Barret M107/M82 rifle, this beauty is known for firing 25 x 59 mm grenades. Something you do not want to get hit with. =P

On top of the HMMWV there's a FN MAG Aka the M240 Machine Gun. I had to scale down a bit the MG because once I've finished inking the drawing I realized that the thing way too big. like 30-40% too big. I mean... I had draw it so big that if it had been a real weapon.... it'd be firing freacking 50. Cal. :XD:
So I scaled it down.

The Golden Brigge is located in the background so that should give you a clue of where the scene is located.

I used like usual the Pixelized camouflage from :iconxenosilence: for Victoria's ACU

The Evening sky was perhaps the most dificult part, I was using a real life photo as reference as to improve my sky painting. It didn't came out identical but it looks pretty good.

I'm quite happy with this project although I wish I could have drawn Kahunasniper and Victory with more detail. I guess including the HMMWV accidentally send the characters to a second place. ^^; My apologies.


I hope you like it. My free time has shortened again so I will be slowler at uploading stuff. No worries 'though, I still got three linearts scaned and ready to be colored (Which I shall do soon withing the next days/weeks), got another ready but unscaned and got another one in the makings.

Next project I should be uploading when finished should be :iconcyrus88:'s request.

These last two weeks have been definitively profitable so I'm in a real good mood. :lol:

PS: Oh.... and made a new and more intrusive watermark signature. :iconimhappyplz: I thought it would be time for a change :D

See'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

I think this was the very first piece I saw done by you. I found it through Kahuna. It wasn't long after that that we became really great friends (: You know what's kind of funny? The sky, how you painted it, was my favorite part.

hehe I have to admit that when I made this picture, I used a photo as reference. But just as reference for the cloud patterns and colors. It was also the time in which I was using only the basic brushes to do my clouds. I think I could do better in the future.

I am meaning to do more sky paintings and sceneries in PhotoShop without so much technical stuff in it. ahhhh soo many ideas, projects and so no time to do them :iconfoxcryplz:

I think it's good to use reference. I know I use it sometimes to help me in my writing. We are always working to better ourselves (: And I totally understand. I wish I could write everything and magically have the capability to draw my characters. D:
