Post apocalyptic sketch

Just adding a new sketch to play further with texture and line.  I happened upon an image of a WWII German soldier burying an Allied pilot.

I was fascinated by the somber nature of the photograph, as well as its inversion of typical War narratives.  I used this image as a reference for the following illustration:

Mixing my line art with some watercolor textures created a pretty interesting picture.

 

Until next time,
