Tour Of Duty - Women In Combat Le
Drawing - Of Graphite Pencil Sketch
Veterans Day was the inspiration for this piece. I wanted to do a piece that showed that the women are also one of our Veterans. The female soldiers eyes and head are shifted to indicate that she is highly aware of her surroundings (possibly hearing a noise behind her) standing with her riffle ready for action if necessary. It is also my intention to portray a young spirited female soldier above, juxtaposing the lower worn out, aged soldier who just came home after a grueling "Tour of Duty".
This piece took over 20 hrs, using a range of pencils H6 - 3B and Nero #2 charcoal pencil on Canson Smooth 100 lbs paper. Click just above the glove to see how detailed it gets.
