The third invasion by Panzerfire The third invasion by Panzerfire
"There was smoke. A lot of it. One couldn't see a thing. Suddenly, a figure emerges with open arms as if welcoming someone. The man makes an evil looking grin towards the audience and proclaims: I'M BACK!"

How's that for a self-introduction after more than 6 bloody months without posting sh*t? ;P

Yup, the Panzer is back and ready to roll all over you. *Plays Ghost Division by Sabaton*


Anyway, here's the final project I had to do for the comic/drawing classes. We basically had to write a small story and make two comic pages applying the stuff we learned throughout the year. I got a "10 Felicitado" for this which is like 110% or an "A+" in US grading standars. =P

As you can see, I went with a story about the British invading Buenos Aires for a third time. I really didn't bother thinking in a complex backstory. Just made something that would be shocking and cool visually. ;) No politics involved (I swear). But the brits did invade Buenos Aires twice (Only to be repelled away with the help of some cooking oil). So they could totally go for it again. (Just kidding, I love you brits.)

For those that don't know River Plate and Boca Juniors are two Argentine football teams and they're ht emost popular ones in the country. When both face each other, it's called the "Superclasic" and it's a pretty big event regarding of what it's at stake for that match.

The color work is hand made using color pencils. I got a nice selection so I applied some pretty fitting colors.

The shadows were made along aside the inking process though I also pressed harder on the colors to generate a more gradient like effect to simulate light. Though it did not go as good as I thought it would be.

Anyway, I'm pretty happy with this even if it doesn't really match the standars of my previous works here in DA. It's also my first time trying to work on a proper comic page so excuse the relative simpleness of it. I'm not a pro (Yet).

Ok, I still got some drawings I need to finish for next Friday in order to fully pass the course so for this week I'm all booked up. But when December arrives, I should be able to get back to work with my own stuff. I got a few projects left hanging from a pretty good while ago. I'll see if I can get to work on it. But I will also be taking comissions so here's the heads up. ;) Don't worry, my coloring style will be digital as normal and not like this.

I will post later on a picture showing the different stages of this project. They're basically the inked versions, the versions with shadows and the final colored pages to see how it evolved. I don't rule out making a digital colored version of this sometime in the future but right now it's not really a priority.


Well, I hope you like it, I busted my ass for this. ^^;

See'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

The Royal Army? Still, cool comic. Even though I can't fathom this happening, the British just look so awesome!

Never really in development for starters.

This was just a final project to present at a comic-building workshop.

Though I would like to do something larger out of the concept in the future.

If you're writing a story, vehicles and weapons will be the LEAST of your concerns. Those are just props that dont really add anything to the story except for eye candy. You need characters and a plot in which they're key elements to move the story forward.

You should start with that and leave the designing of weapons and vehicles for later.

This is a really cool comic! It's rather strange seeing modern British soldiers as the villains (though I somewhat understand how the poor Russians feel like now with today's videogames.)

(One note though; It's called the British army, as opposed to the Royal Army, because the man who created it, Cromwell, was a traitor to the Crown)

Cheers! Im glad you like it. :D

Yes, I've already been made aware of the naming issue when I first posted this. ;) Will not make that mistake again.

And yeah im sure there are few movies that got you brits as the evil-doers (Thinks "The Patriot") ;P But yeah Russians are overused, time to put some NATO inthe evil mix. :D Just for the fun of it.

I'm very sorry! I've just went through the comments and realised that I must have been the 10th person to lecture you about the army.


  As for the patriot, we've never liked that film, not because the British are the villians, but because like every American-made war film, it is SO historically inaccurate! XD

Why would the chaps invade Argentina, anyway ?
Reply
:iconpanzerfire:
Panzerfire Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
hehe who knows?

This is just fiction and not really ment to be taken seriously.

But over here in Argentina there's often some talk that Argentina is or will be the target of mainly NATO countries in search of large supplies of sweet water in the near future. Personally I think it's all paranoic bullsh*t.

A more likely possibility would be if Anglo-Argentine relations took a turn to the worst and the brits were sure that a new invasion of Malvinas/Falklands was inminent. Under such scenario, a British-led offensive to overthrow the Argentine government might be plausible.

But personally i don't think such a scenario would ever take place.

"Personally I think it's all paranoic bullsh*t."
Same thing here.

"But personally i don't think such a scenario would ever take place."
Indeed. Although, should it happen, I think both countries would know it would be best for both of them no to escalate the thing higher than a war like the Falklands/Malvinas war.
