At Ease by JenZee At Ease by JenZee
Okay, so this started out as fanart and ended up as just random speed painting with three military dewds.

HOWEVER, if you squint hard, that's Gray Fox, Python (SUPER random... I don't even know if that makes any sense with the current time line but Kojima already screwed that up in MGPO) and Solid Snake. Depending on the year, the vehicle may or may not make sense... oh well. Sorry PSAOM, I hope I did better this time :(.

Sorry for the large amounts of speedies lately guys T_T... I'm trying to practice certain technical aspects I generally fail miserably at.

:hug: Thanks for looking! comments/critiques/cussing/etc welcome and appreciated as always!

Photoshop CS2

While doing research for this one I came across these photographs: [link]

Periodically, I think we all need to look at stuff like this to put everything in perspective :/.

I have no idea who those characters are but it's an incredibly atmospheric piece. And this is what you come up with when you do speed paintings? Wow.

Omg, those pictures you linked are truly shocking.... the burning priest is terrible... actually they all are... There's even a phot taken in Chile of Allende, I was surprised to see that o.o But for what I clicked, I love this! I wish my so called speed drawings looked so awesome, the colours are amazing and the butterflies give a cool feeling to the pic ^^

Everything looks so natural with the green and the focus points being the light blue butterflies. :3

This is one of the best military paintings I've seen in a long time! Keep up the good work; I hope to see more paintings like this~ :3

Ah I love this pic (and the website makes you think).

My favorite parts about this pick, aside from the soldiers themselves, are the blue butterflies. They add a nice splash of color to the mix.

I saw this in my friend's favourites and loved it the second I saw the thumbail. I didn't recognise them as the characters though. I'm in love with the colours, especially the blueish hues on the car. The shadows! So cool. Also in love with the guy's pose on top of the car. Man. You say it's a speedie but it looks like the stuff I work on for dozens of hours - how long did this take you? You inspired me to draw loads of military things.

I always love seeing your paintings, JenZee! And those photos were a bit of a wake-up to my early-morning perusing. It definitely sobers you up quick. (not a bad thing, I was in a haze before and now I'm like, "Oh. Well.")

We're talking about a series where one of the most popular characters is a flying psychic in bondage gear.

I don't think we need to worry about historical accuracy.
