The Battle of Witok
Posted 4 years 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.

Testimonial
Over the course of several series books, Simon has been an absolute pleasure to work with — he’s talented, professional, and detailed. He deftly translates entirely imagined worlds into amazing works of art that make those worlds real on the covers of our books. His talent speaks for itself in his portfolio and I would recommend him to anyone looking to work with an expert in character and scene illustration.
