The First Order of Business by Panzerfire The First Order of Business by Panzerfire
Requested by :iconklein01:


A new day is starting in World War 2 Europe.... and the first order of business is.... killing natzees! :iconaldoraineplz:

=P



Anyway, here we see a US Army Soldier in typical WW2 uniform (I tried to be accurate but I improvised several details), holding a M1A1 Thomson Submachine Gun. He's pin down in the corner of a building and is unable to run across the other side of the street due to a well placed MG-42 crew. In addition, a little rain (Note, It's NOT pouring out there so there still sun) and the sun right behind the enemy MG position make things quite harder for this GI Joe.

This is not inspired by anything in particular and the project started as something far more simplier but I couldn't resist trying to make it more complex and... well. You can judge by yourself.

Be gentle. ^^;

One thing I tried to replicate was the impact of bullets in a solid surface like a wall. Bullet impacts in detail are amazingly rare (Given the sort of art I do). I hope they're good because I've been mostly playing around with some PhotoShop brushes to achieve that.

I hope you guys like it.

See'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

PS: Made myself a new Avatar, 'though I may change it again in the near future. :)

"ALRIGHT, WE ARE IN BUSINESS!". The sergeant, after yelling to his troops, leads the way up the beach, tracers of gold passing by him, leaving him virtually untouched.  He then unleashed a barrage of .45 caliber bullets, each one sailing through the air.  

You like?  I love he pic!  A huge fan of Thompsons and American GIs during WWII.  However, I have no favorite era of American soldiers.  I love them all.  Respect to the troops.  :). Anyways, nice pic!
