BRITISH SNIPER by glogauer BRITISH SNIPER by glogauer
I made this drawing last summer in order to make some experiences.
I realized it by hand copying a photo given by a friend of mine, Avary (which is on Deviant Art), to practice my sense of observation.
I tried very hard to be the nearest possible to the original photo, but there is a lot of differences between the two pictures.

I used pencils, inks and digital colors.

The subject is a British sniper protecting the advance of a sort of tank.

Comments welcome.
