Ain't found a way to kill me yet
Eyes burn with stinging sweat
Seems every path leads me to nowhere
Wife and kids household pet
Army green was no safe bet
The bullets scream to me from somewhere
Here they come to snuff the rooster
Yeah here come the rooster
You know he ain't gonna die
Walkin' tall machine gun man
They spit on me in my home land
Gloria sent me pictures of my boy
Got my pills 'gainst mosquito death
My buddy's breathin' his dyin' breath
Oh god please won't you help me make it through

Now THIS is an Image that truely inspires me to do better.I love the entire compositon.The lighting and realism are fantastic. Oh master of realism teach us teach us:)...cool cigg too. Thats the kind of image I would like to strive to achieve:)Great work Gabriel:)
Man, I love this one. I can imagine this guy after a patrol, after the post-patrol briefing. His buddies egg him on to go get a few drinks, but he just hits the barracks. Sitting in his bunk, he lights up, not even realizing that he hasn't taken of his bloody clothes. RECOMMENDATIONS: The bump map looks a bit too severe (like that Asia image I did awhile back). And the cig smoke seems to disappear. You probably meant it to curl around his head, but realistically, where the cig is, it would flare into his face and the brim of the hat. Just some constructive criticism. I think I beat your old comment record....Fredo
there is no bump map - theres a film grain effect added, and quite a bit of desaturation, because thats the effect that i wanted. the smoke has been bugging me too (not the direction, but the fact that there should be more of it) - but keep in mind that it all has to be painted in by hand, so i cant get too wildly complex or ill lose realism. ill try to make some small changes though. thanks for the comments folks.
Wow, but the image itself is moody and complex, the words just add to that....concept art is some of my favorite stuff. But the ciggie ROCKS! Smoke is a pain in the patootie as are real tears, I still have that to figure out....The b/w grainy just sets the whole thing off.....Magic, absolute Magic!
You've done it again - this is just fantastic, right down to the slightly crumpled cigarette (last one in the pack?) and the way the smoke is pooled under the brim of his hat - you are definately an inspiration to anyone who strives for realism in their work!
