This is one of my favourite images. After spending the whole weekend playing the original World War 2 game Medal of Honour on Playstation 1 back in my Uni days, I came up with this image of three nazi stormtroopers are making their way through the driving snow in a determined fashion.

It was created before the advent of my getting photoshop, using pencil and paper initially, before laboriously inking everything in with a humble felt tip pen. Having drawn the soldiers first, I originally drew the snow circular, but tben struck upon the idea of drawing them elliptical, which allowed me to suggest the direction and force of the snow storm and give the image it’s power.

    Especially impressive and creative when you appreciate this was created before everyone started drawing folks in gas masks after the release of half life 2.

    Thanks John. I hadn’t considered that before, actually. Cheers.
