Vickers Machine Gun Crew ~ WW1 by Wolfang11 Vickers Machine Gun Crew ~ WW1 by Wolfang11
1914-2014

Exactly one hundred years ago, the first world war broke out. This drawing of a Vickers machine gun crew is my way to commemorate those who died in a surreal war that is too often forgotten nowadays.

I hope you like it.

Dodging shrapnel and barbed wire
Running straight at cannon fire
Running blind as I hold my breath
Say a prayer symphony of death.

This is amazing. We must remember the British and "Axis" troops.

Yep, British, not German, but they were most likely shooting at Germans :)

Ah, yes, it just ended up in the German Military group here on DA, so.

I remember seeing a similar pic of this in a World History textbook over at my highschool and I love the drawing

I totally love your simple background. It suggests a grim atmosphere, which is portrayed very detailed in the soldiers themselves.

Thanks! I usually don't draw backgrounds because I tend to mess up the drawing, so I decided to do it simple and I like the way it turned out!
