Two more from my sketchbook.
Modern day terrorism demanded new skills from our soldiers. Urban settings became the new battleground. In the first sketch I was looking for a way to show how our soldiers adapted to these new warfare tactics.
On the second page I’m beginning to think of the larger composition as a whole while trying different backgrounds. Random notes, hardware and armour start to become important for later reference.
Please remember to buy a poppy.
Our world owes a lot to our men and women who fought for us, and a poppy is such a small but powerful token of respect and gratitude reminding us to never forget.
