That's a wonderful piece, man. =) Took me straight back into those times, and the horror and grit of warfare. Made me think of the trenches. Love the muted palette.
Very nicely done as per usual, and the texture is exceptionally nice with the Mauser in the second piece. That said, the 'Nam piece seems a bit off. It might be some stiffness in the figures' postures that's doing it. Nice touch with the duckbill hiders on the M16s, by the way.

falchion- thx, duckbill hiders? lol btw nice sketchbook...
shadow stalker- not really man sorry
634 is really great. =)
636 -> proportions and body language doesn't convince me really. You don't have to agree with that. But if you do, it is easy to solve. When I start out to draw a picture I get the same thing. What I do? No matter what, I don't care if it was hard work and many many hours, I will destroy the portions I don'like and paint over them.
Give it a try, your muse will come and help you.
Just remember Howard Pyle or Dunn and what they always said. Do you feel the war? The violence, the horror? The waterlogged sand. The wind and the cloudy weather. The screams and callings for help. Can you hear the explosions. How would your face look like if you get deaf and numb because of a grenade while you are in cover?
victoria styles- thanks, wow ur so nice
ackerman- like ive never done that before lol that pic really doesnt bother me and aside from here i havent really heard that, all the same im not going to change it proportion or pose wise. i guess im not as big a perfectionist as alot of artists
This one http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1321978571 is my favourite in the last few pages, I think.
#622,#634(i'd work on legs, the right one is too close) and #645 are stunning man, you've got kickass skills. If these are from imagination you're truly amazing!
Nice sense of style. cool sketches.
the second in #636 is pretty sweet.
amazing as always!

thx thyname, the heads are big in the last pic or just in general? i think the recent one has improved since the one prior
not many people know the first american infantry to fight in ww1 were blacks who fought in the 369th, also known as the harlem hellfighters, or black rattlers, they wore mostly french equipment except for the american uniform and were feared for their hand to hand combat reputation

Loving the world war art, brilliantly done, loving your level of skill !!!
Just wanted to stop by and say you really have a knack for getting facial expressions right (something I've also been trying to learn... unsuccessfully lol).
Interesting note about the Harlem Hellfighters though, and I really like the way that one's shaded.
Keep up the awesome work!
Hey Jesus Food, great use of value contrast on that last piece (nighttime scene).
Not too much to say for crits, as always, you are very good at what you do.
Keep pushing on your rendering and backgrounds. I'd also like to see some thought
process on composition (thumbnails, value studies) which would probably help to
take your work to the next level.
