I like to paint people from all walks of life - I just enjoy sketching military themed subjects. As for joining the military - at 55 I guess you can say I missed the boat. I had my opportunity to join the Air Force but I had elected not to. It was a mistake - one of many missed career accomplishments.

This sketch is more of a caricature but I like it.

I'm afraid that any work that I will do for the military will be as a contractor. I also knew about the military service requirements in Israel.

Here is a sketch of a French Soldier from a photo dated 1916. I tried to capture the weariness yet determination of this warrior.

I like the "faceless" approach I think it gives them more of an "Every man" feel rather than individualising the image.

But given that I never progressed beyond stick figures I probably shouldn't be commenting, either way nice work.

Thanks Monty - succinctly put.

I'm finding that sketching equipment is a challenge.

This sketch of a Marine came off a little bit too severe. Her photo showed more compassion along with her determination.
