Serious Work

I was recently hired by a film company that works for the U.S. Military to do a series of illustrations on Prisoners of War. They liked the line quality of my Zombie Portraits and were interested in having me work in a more graphic style.  The subject matter of P.O.W.s was much more serious than my normal fantasy monster routine.

I found it quite challenging to wrap my mind around what these soldiers went through. It was also interesting and challenging to handle real life subject matter. I had to make sure the helicopter looked like a Blackhawk, and the jet was an F-15. I also learned a bit about flight suits and parachutes.

I don’t feel comfortable telling these soldiers stories, so I will let the illustrations speak for themselves. I did them in pen and ink, and then added gray tone digitally.
