For Joseph.

The reference is a photo that my friend Joseph had from when he was in Iraq.

This is great, Anna. My little brother has some pretty cool photos from when he was in the Marines over there.... scary. You did such a wonderful job of conveying the feeling it should have.
fleeting_memory (Nov 7, 2005)
this scares me. It is a wonderful picture but I have a marine friend named Joe and I would die if anything happened to him over there. Very very nice picture
TaCO (Nov 7, 2005)
I love the color.
It pulls you forward.
Anna (Nov 7, 2005)
Thanks guys. And yeah, it's really scary being over there. The stories he tells me are just... wow. ;_;

Damn, Anna..the grass..the whole thing. It looks like it could be from Viet Nam, too. Thank Joseph for going.

I am coming back to this for like the 5th time to look at it, so I figured I'd just comment again and say how MUCH I LIKE IT AND HOW GREAT IT IS AND DISRUPT THE NORMAL PEACE OF THE SITE WITH THIS FONT!!!!!!! :) :D :)
featherstone (Nov 7, 2005)

this is just incredible, photographic. When I think of Iraq I don't think of trees and grass, this looks more like my back yard. That makes this piece even more frightening.
Caddris (Nov 8, 2005)
Whoa. Photorealism. . . incredible, absolutely incredible. What more can I say?
hideyourface (edited Nov 8, 2005)
It really takes you right into the picture. You can sense the silence and anticipation.
nobody (Nov 8, 2005)
nicely drawn. i like the texture.

the soldier's pant legs though, makes me feel as though he's floating above it and simply has no leg below what you drew. it doesn't seem to imply that his legs continue into the grass. that would be my critique.
flopsymopsy (Nov 8, 2005)
Thank you for this Anna, I like it very much. Can you change the shape of the helmet please so I can send this to my great-nephews who were/are in Iraq with the British Forces? Just kidding ;) it's a great pic - *salutes* Joseph.

Hey this looks like a war computer game dunno if this is an insult or a compliment to you but i like it
Felistorm (Nov 17, 2005)
This is excellent. Kinda has that creepy something is about to happen feel to it too. Can almost hear the crickets chirping.

~*~that picture is just wow! it's so realistic!~*~
Gigge (Nov 26, 2005)
Beautiful work, Anna. Have you done a collab with Cindy? I think if you used this style your work and hers could have some nice interplay.
Miss_DJ (Dec 10, 2005)
this is great Anna! It makes me pause and be thankful for their courage.
shining_star_sam (Apr 8, 2006)
