An Anzac day tribute, although the soldier is an American he represents men and women all over the world who join the armed forces.
Done in Faber Castell and Prisma coloured pencils on a 40×50cm illustration board.
Sometimes soldiering can be a dirty business.

I am a self taught coloured pencil artist residing in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. My passion at the moment is human portraiture, especially celebrities, as due to their high profile nature the margin for error is minute and an intriguing challenge. I also do commissions, both human and non-human, when the occasion arises. Thank you for viewing my work and feel free to leave any comments, good or bad, and I will certainly respond.

    Excellent artwork..
    And in my opinion soldiering and war is always dirty business.. dying so needlessly.
    I am a 60’s "peacenik "you see…

  • Ah yes Heather, the days of high ideals and noble causes, I wonder where they went, probably the same place as the un-wrinkled skin. Thanks very much for your lovely comment.
