Part 1 of the 'Angels on our Shoulders' series.
I want to start doing a lot more of these quick little sketches - I've seen other artists playing around with the concept (a 'sketch dump'?) and I'd like to give it a go! I think that, particularly if the drawings are war-based, it's almost like a snapshot of a memory - sketched, perhaps not perfect or clear, maybe a little hurried or messy...I think that conveys the chaos of war and those blurred memories people have in situations like that - or even, on the other hand, that one little detail that people remember above anything else - maybe one scene or one person.
In this case, a medic's expression as he steadies himself after a shell blast, watching helplessly as his friends fall all around him.
High School Teacher - track I listened to as I sketched this, go listen! [link][EDIT] Ummm.. the 'quick sketch' turned into a full drawing! I couldn't help it!
