The Battle of Witok
Posted 1 year ago and submitted by Simon Carr | Share link: http://illo.cc/78864

Here’s another illustration that I created for the ‘Soldiers of Empires‘ project. This was the first major battle between the Japanese 33rd Division’s Infantry and the British 2Bn Border Regiment. This painting represented a number of challenges for me. First off, I’d never painted a night scene and secondly there was a lot more figures to compose than in any of my previous paintings. I knew that it would be easy to become overwhelmed with the sheer amount of details and elements involved so I just broke everything down into smaller projects and here’s the finished result.

Working with Simon was wonderful. He communicated very quickly and clearly, paid amazing attention to detail, and really made sure to capture the feel we were looking for in a picture. Incredibly talented artist and overall great person.
