oh what a lovely war by GeneralVyse oh what a lovely war by GeneralVyse
well this is another battle only here the enemy are quite apparent, alos you'll note the german tank one of 25? they made in the first world war, this one is a bit more brutal as it has hand to hand combat but hopefully it represents ww1 combat quite well

Wow, finally a somewhat good reference on the German machines. I've had a damned hard time over the years finding any pictures of the German "land dreadnoughts". Your detail is phenomenal! Truly phenomenal!!!

I wouldn't use it for reference if I were you, it's not 100% accurate - Here's a pic of the real deal; [link]

I'm delighted you like the drawing though, it did take ages, but looking at it now, years later, there's a lot I would change - I might do another of these one day in the future.

Thanks for the link!

As for old art in hindsight, I do know the feeling. One improves, one grows. So many times I look back at some of my stuff too and say "Gosh, if only..."

Hmm, I started one of the Battle of Quebec (7 years war) but I over egged the dtail and it got tedious. What about the Battle of Yorktown?

Ahh, the A7V Imperial German Tank, too bad for the German Empire only 15 of those were ever made before the end of the war.
It's a good picture, nicely detailed

i thought it was 29.... but im probably wrong LOL there certainly weren't enough but then, really, look at them, they have a tiny wheel/track base, i find it hard to believe that they could traverse trenches and shell holes.... they must only have been any good in flat country... and even then, they're little more than mobile sheds, most field guns would have punched holes in them easily.... at least the British Mk1's had the tracks on the sides, that gave some distance between the crew and all hell breaking loose....


Me? I still favour the armoured car :D

Myself, I enjoyed the 18mm artillery cannon, I just wish that artillery could have a little more accuracy

The effort is seen, I can't stop admiring. :)

Doh, now I fell urged to do something similar, but WW2 will be slightly hard due to long firing range of the MG42 :P There were very little amount of melee carnages, and Stalingrad is a bit over-exposed nowadays :lmao:

and all the buildings of stalingrad would make it difficult too i think the omaha you've done is a good way round it! ;)

JanBoruta Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2007  Student General Artist
But it's also too much exposed in our world now.. And I want to make a separate WW2 carnage :D Or maybe some kind of the WW1 Eastern-front fortress storm or at least a massive battle like Tannenberg... :D

:D well i aim to please! and i wanted to show how much might be going on in a battle at once - its probably not a very realistic picture but from what ive read this is pretty much as it was - though those german tanks were extremely rare....

I think the scene is bit too crowded... But it brings out a certain type of mood and atmosphere. Like in combat, you're not quite able to focus in one detail and everything just happens before your eyes, and you're not able to do anything about it. And I do give you credit for huge job and the details and of course for choosing WW1...;)

yeah, can you spot the wally/cat in the hat character? hes got a massive stripy top hat, yes hes in there somewhere, and there always a skull somewhere too, that was my motif in drawings for ages til i realised it was a little predictable, now i have a dh logo.... might put it online...as well as the eagle. im glad you like it though, its really good fun putting all these little fights into the battle, theres one more that is absolutely huge a3 that i haven't put online yet, you'll love it, theres tanks scots artillery rivers all sorts... its a true epic
