"There's absolutely nothing over there sir!"
"Alright trooper, come back to us now! The storm's getting stronger..."


After three and a half day of work, my first "big" picture of the year is finally accomplished. :dummy:
Took the opportunity to try out various things, from vectoring a MBT to giving an ambiance and depth to the scenery. I hope I can get myself to draw more "complete" drawings like this one in the future~

Guess they didn't want to scan with the tanks "thermal" sights to see what was out there. (Work the best in the winter / overcast) Also, Sir, could you just get the binos out next time and just look for footprints in the snow. 

One of the best ways to take out a tank is when the crew isn't in it.

This is really neat! I love the level of detail, especially on the snow and the tank, even though it is in the background.

Been digging a couple of refs for those, even though the L2A6 ended up not looking quite like real thing. :XD:

Ah, not sure if I'll be using vectors again in the future, there are so many options for polishing linearts lol

I wonder ... why keeping a central Europe camouflaged flak jacket and scarf ... in a snowy environment ? That can't be good for stealth, right ?

That's CADPAT lol, it probably doesn't look close to the real thing since I desaturated the colors to give the drawing a "colder" mood.

Heeeh, tank crews won't usually go out in the open, I can't even recall what was going on in my mind when I drew this.

NDTwoFives Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2013  Student Digital Artist
That's ought to be tricky, I'm probably just going to make a generic looking unit before adding up the sleeves with the unit name stitched on. But even there, it depends on how big the detail turns out. :I

US army right?

the uniform looks familiar

The pattern on the frag vest looks nothing like the US Army's UCP upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia…
Here, the pattern is actually that one www.hyperstealth.com/camo-impr… but the colors got less vibrant due to the desaturation of the colors~

The Americans have PALS webbing on everything, but this vest in pretty bland in comparison. X)

No, the location of this drawing is in the northern most country of North America, so is the nationality of the patrolling tank loader.

Canadian ;P

The winter jackets don't have the velcro for the flag patches, the only clues that gave away the nationality were the CADPAT frag vest and that particular looking C8 carbine stock. XD

I'm totally digging the accurate Canadian kit in all your stuff.  The "Over the helmet" vehicle headset and the grey "American" helmet band we issue now are nice touches.

Thank you! Been through quite a bit of research to make sure the kit's accurate.

Great work, I like all the detail especially in the background. Also, is that an MG42 on the tank in the background?

:iconndtwofives:
NDTwoFives Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Thanks! :)

Oh no, it's not a MG42, but you were fairly close. XD
Meet its successor, the MG3, looks and works exactly the same, save for its 7.62x51mm NATO caliber~
