nicely done. Though I still think an anthro wolf would be wearing boots in a war. boots would be shaped to suit their feet, sure, but they WOULD be boots. Can't imagine how walking on wood splinters, smashed glass, tangled barbed wire and stray bayonets would be like if they're barefoot, even WITH pads on their toes
Veeerry, very good point. I didn't think that through Whenever i think of anthros, i always think of Morrowind where the Argonians and Khajit's feet were angled like this, and as a result, they weren't permitted to wear shoes. If i think about it though, i pretty sure there'd be some sort of specially designed footwear for them!
Heh, my dad was watching an old documentary on the Military Channel about Normandy three days ago.
Pretty sad time, that was. Kind of eerie seeing animals take the soldiers' places and actually seeing a dead one back there in the background...but hey, you captured something that was all too real. Needless to say you went gritty and realistic for this one, successfully replicating that wartime feel. Excellent detailing in the different textures and poses; when you set your mind to it, you can illustrate anything.
It was a sad time. To be honest, i remember studying WW2 at school, but my teachers were never very good, and my family weren't into history much either, so as a result, my knowledge of history isn't very great. It's only been the past year that i've wanted to change things, and find out about all the things i should know. This commission gave me the perfect chance to go over the Normandy invasion and find out more about it.
And thank you. The commissioner asked for a dead guy in the background, and i thought it'd really add to it, if one of the dead guys was actually a medic, to show how there really was no mercy. It was very interesting to do this piece, as i learnt a lot, mainly about perspective and vanishing points, and also adding that gritty, textured feel. So i'm very glad as i was chosen for this commission.
Hey, now that you're on your own...it gives you that opportunity to explore history whenever you can, whenever you want to. In your spare time, it's good to gain a little bit of insight into different parts of history and the people who made it. I do that sometimes myself, if I get bored.
No problem at all, from the details you provided it sounds as if you did his concept justice.
