Brothers at War.....

'I'm sure I'm very sorry,' was all Alice could say; for the words of the old song kept ringing through her head like the ticking of a clock, and she could hardly help saying them out loud:

'Tweedledum and Tweedledee
Agreed to have a battle;
For Tweedledum said Tweedledee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.
Just then flew down a monstrous crow,
As black as a tar-barrel;
Which frightened both the heroes so,
They quite forgot their quarrel.'


  1. Nice! Dude love the break up of shadow and light, especially on the top section. Really nice dude. Love how the wing itself and bombs overlap the bottom and top boards, and just how you interpreted the crow in general.

    Those are pictures of vehicles right? Nonetheless, great piece. Really challenging yourself these past couple of posts. Keep it up!

  2. I really like the interpretation of the writing, and I think the composition is great. I would like to see more whites in it, though. I think lightening up the area where my eye should start, as it is, my eye starts just above the plane contrasted with the clouds and then moves out from there. Cool post!

  3. whats up andrew, really like the composition and narrative you got going on in this piece. I would try breaking up the values underneath the tank, at least seperating the treads from the under carraige.

    Also I would consider using rays of light behind the plane to seperate the two generals as opposed to the diagnol lines, and have them facing each other for additional tension, I think it defianetly works as is, just something I might consider. Great work man! cant wait to see your epic-ness next week lol

  4. I like the symetery and the duelality (i think thats how you spell that btw need the spell check in these blogs..sorry) Strong narrative great concept and addaptation of the words...keep bringing that heat!!


    I feel like this image is near perfect man! great job, and as far as the illiteration, it is too bad that there is not a crow to interrupt the tweedledees and tweedledumbs of our generation. great choice.

    I do believe that if you had just a bit more time, you would have been able to flesh out the vehicles just a touch more and that would have rounded the image out a bit more nicely. but great job man... keep it up.

    I mean this more than the english language will let me emphasize, you are my inspiration.

  6. This is a great take on the story, I was originally gonna do the same part of the story but obviously changed my mind. I really like how you brought it into the real world. The only crit... maybe if the two men were at 3/4 view...just a thought. Still damn near perfect though.
