Baghdad by RadoJavor Baghdad by RadoJavor
Some personal work after all those ships. Restfull evening in the Baghdad city. I hope that there will be more such a days without the killing. So hope you'll like it because slightly optimistic.
I played with the light in sligtly different way than on my last pictures. I wanted to paint some refracting ligt in darker street, but its not easy. I used refrence for the APC Stryker and the characters, hope they look realistic.
All done in photoshop as usually+ wacom intuos. Time spend was about 25 hours.

Was no killing in Baghdad last time I was there in 2009 well at least no killing by my unit or any US Forces I knew of.
A few notes at least for Baghdad more trash, a woman would not be by herself the power wires should have at least triple the number of wires and be tangled up. The stryker is good but a camo net on top as well as air guards in the open hatches. not sure what year this was but my unit had rules against having a flag attached to the vehicle. lastly in theater stryker units paint over the bumper numbers so that they cant be identified on an individual basis.

should also be unit patches on the soldiers and 2nd ID rarely uses the M249 with full stock. Also if I had come up on this situation I would have ass chewed both those soldiers for having there weapons slung on there backs especially the MG thats an accident waiting to happen.

alot of times if things were calm and we were stopped like this we would be flooded with children wanting candy, soda, Gatorade or anything else they could talk us out of. most of them saw our strykers as the equivalent of an Ice cream track.

If you ever do another one of these I would love see it. I spent two years total there 2007 and 2009. the people are an interesting bunch if only ruled a bit much by the might makes right mentality but we havent done much to disprove that ourselves.

very nicely done, great perspective and do love how you used the cage armor system.
sadly it seems that no killing in Baghdad is about as likely as no rain in the rainforest
