A commission for

J.Fox is a young freedom fighter of sorts (not in an actual military). You may remember him from another piece I did: [link]

Here, J is catching a bit of sleep in a war zone, dreaming of a happier life, one with the girl he loves.

One of the things I really enjoyed doing in this piece, was creating different moods through the use of color saturation or lack thereof.

Since I know the gun enthusiasts will want to know, that is an M14 rifle with scope. ^.^

This piece was done with acrylic paints on 9"x12" illustration board.

This remember me to my character Prince Panda, he has a story almost similar to that. Between the war and the love! :nod:

I'd say he's in some late 20th century conflict. shortly after he was about to go all the way before the artist of this picture cut him off.

Could be Africa, newly formed Chechnya, Vietnam, how knows?

Touching. Tell him to keep on fighting and she'll be there when he gets home.

I think this song "When You're Gone" by Avril Lavigne is totally suitable for J.Fox now. That song makes me feel like crying and also this art. *sniff sniff*

I love the way this looks, the outfit he has on looks very WW2-esque. And the fact that he is dreaming of being with his love is very touching. Great work!
