No One Left Behind by AdamBurn No One Left Behind by AdamBurn
A print of this painting can be bought here [link]

A recon team touch down amidst fire and death, the aftermath of a huge battle between military forces and giant machines. Once landed one of the recon team spots a marine trying to support themselves with their rifle, she recognizes the marines armour, and a band around his arm, the same as her lovers. She bolts out of the dropship another team member shouts and tries to grab her but she's already just out of reach. The area is like an inferno, and some of the machines could still be active, despite the dangers she runs through it all.


My piece for the new exhibit from the Luminarium dedicated to a man who has given us so much and has enabled The Luminarium to get so far, David Bixler, who was seriously injured serving his country in Afghanistan. This is a tribute to him and the many like him who serve their country with honour, courage and bravery in the face of many dangers.

Don't bother with negative comments - they inhibit people's potential. One could go complaining about the superfluous flaws in texture and whatever, but then they're ignoring how truly inspirational and emotively compelling a piece can be...
Art is not to be analysed.
It is to be enjoyed.

I agree that it's a really beautiful piece, but a little constructive criticism never hurts anyone.

Considering it was one of my first attempts at figure painting, and yes painting, I thought it went ok. No need to try and force your alleged superiority here, if you have critique then say it don't just come up with sly comments.

Good ol' Nano suit :)

Crysis 1 and 2 are both VERY good games. Think of a more closer to home Halo, with SLIGHTLY more realism.

How long have you been drawing seriously like this? Do you do this professionally, or just a hobby?
This is really fantastic work, I love it.

Ive been doing Digital art for around 5 years, painting and drawing traditionally for most my life. I only really started doing paintings of environments and characters last year before that I did mostly space images. It started as a hobby but people began to get interested in hiring me for commissions, I now do multiple commissions and work for an independent game developer.

How long does it usually take to complete a full artwork?
Reply
:iconadamburn:
AdamBurn Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Usually depends on the complexity of the image, something this detailed would take in upwards of 30 hours

wow, that's amazing, it sounds very time consuming, yet its definitely worth the wait. I'm just trying to figure out how you actually drew the fire.

:iconadamburn:
AdamBurn Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
The fire isn't painted, well some smaller areas are, most of its photos of fire manipulated, its the easiest way to get realistic fire

There are a lot of tutorials that can teach you the basics, I advise running through a few, also lots of artists have sped up videos of them working, also good for seeing how they paint.
