Ambush by RadoJavor Ambush by RadoJavor
This was my first attempt to paint a battle and forest together. Finished for empire total war as a first commision picture. The scene is a forest ambush in the war of Indipendence. Maybe the picture had a bit fantazy forest feeling but Im no t so good in painting real forests. The picture is 3 years old and I see now that many things can be done better.
Done in photoshop and tablet in some 30 hours.

Since the red coats got their arses handed to them 'several' times, it seems quite obvious that it worked well.

I play Empire Total War, and I have encountered this painting many times during loading screens. I always take a moment to admire it, it's extremely well executed and fitting to the game.

As for the forest having a slightly fantasy feel, I think it works really well. It has a 'mythic' feeling, which suits.
