The Trench by michaelkutsche The Trench by michaelkutsche
Personal work, about 3 hours of Painter X - action, that's why it has a rather rough appearance compared to my other stuff. Curious what you think!

Where you going for a Brodie helmet or a Pot Helm?
Either way it looks cool, you definitely caught my eye.

This is so cool, because everything seems to fit together so well, but it's got this odd juxtaposition between different centuries that really throws you off once you notice it (at first, I thought the gas mask was the only weird bit - but everything is!).

It's fun the rather weird mix of equipment they have!

Make me think of a group of re-enactors who couldn't decide which era to protrait, and went for a bit of all. XD

I love your quick art, its beautiful and this has a great rugged look that matches the attitude of your men. Do you put time thinking about the composition before you start? or does it come out subconsciously?

This is gorgeous. What I take from it is the impression that thoughout the ages war has and always will be a gritty bleak and dreary affair, no matter the romance attached to it.

Love it. The colours you have chosen gives the perfect mood. During WW1 Italian assault troopers and wire-cutters did use kinda weird medieval-like armors, which were tested to resist italian 6mm bullets...and of course tragically failed, because the austro-hungarian used 9mm bullets.

The guy with the gassmask kind of looks lout of place, like a time traveler. So does the bayonette, but he could have given it to them.

masterful evocation of the ancient, tragic grunge & misery of well, conflict, but you tucked in some of that hail- fellow- well- met philosophy/ comrades in arms thing that humans are able to summon...
I can't really imagine the particular pitch of this phenomenon that wars instill . The rough quality seems
perfect for an image that sweeps across time in regards to the acoutrements of war these weary, grey
soldiers have embedded into their very marrow.
