I like it when people draw awesome WWII things. You are one of those people
In Soviet Russia, I iz expert
Love your approach. Haven't seem as many war images as you might think. Interesting topic and great execution. Rendering is quite good, but I think you should try thinking in planes rather than lines... try it, it really helps you progress.
Also try making the light source more "important" and visible.
ps how do i rename my thread title?
Really like the rendering on the inspg3small.jpg, especially around the torso/arm/gun.
You seem to be getting a hang of using the pencil, maybe try doing some gray-scale digitals? Could be awesome.
About the title: edit your first post -> go advanced -> change the title.
hi jesus food,
thank you for stopping by my sb. You have a lot of great stuff here, enjoyed looking at it. My favorite was germansnipersmall, very expressive. By the way, my teacher has a website with lots of drawings he did during WWII, he was a young guy then, so not on the front lines, but check it out www.kudisharts.com, the galleries with drawings have tonns of soldiers in them, mostly at rest though. I thought you might find it interesting.
Excellent update. The girl at the top left of the last drawing - the fingers on her right hand look awkward. Otherwise, excellent job my friend.
Yes, I love WW2 and I'm 21. My dad was in the military and my grandfather served in WW2 on Hawaii. Not many stories to tell other then getting the daylights scared out of him when he was on guard at night. He could hear footsteps but it ended up being a cow.
I know wars aren't great, but there was something inspiring about that war. Something, that I look up to. It was the last war of its kind.
I really like your linework, the retro vibe, and the sense of motion and confidence. keep on!
wow so very good
id liek to see more cleaned up ones.
thx jailhouse... ok u guys want different???! Huh? well lemme introduce u a character me and a friend of mine created in 7th grade... a long time ago, and i haven't drawn him since until today. here he is, i just drew 2 quick sketches on photoshop. his name is fuzzbrain. he doesnt have any powers but he grew hair on the top of his brain after an accident separated his scalp from his skull
Shadow: yeah, actually i dont, sometimes i stumble upon specific forums that have good pictures, but usually i just google "Canadian soldier" for example with the one above. most of my pics i dont use much ref at all because ive been into ww2 stuff for a while, but Canadian forces in Afghanistan im not familiar with
Hey Jesus Food, thanks for stopping by SB! Really liking your value work, and hatching style is really good! Only thing I think could use some work is proportions, maybe some constructive anatomy might help. Also definitely digging this Call Of Duty kick, always good to see some nice composited sketches of action!!

oooo. Art and War. Yes. It must be done. *terminator eyes
I love the details and feel on the war pieces.
But you got to take care with perspective too, especially when you've got straight edged (guns) objects about. I'm still not comfortable using a mirror to check for proportions and compos, so I use a ruler whenever I can.
Keep it flowing Fish and Wine. yumm.
Very good stuff!!!!
Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook. Your WW2 stuff is awesome. I don't use pencil that much myself, but I'm going to give it a try now. Cheers!
Yeah no doubt you'd get tired after drawing the same things over and over. If you ever do more it wont be long til I have a gander though, as I've subscribed to your sketchbook.
