This was an illustration based on the lore surrounding the first cannon shot from the Americans at Yorktown, fired by Washington. It happened to enter the building where a few officers were sitting for dinner.
WOW. The colors are brilliantly brushed.
May I use it for my facebook cover? I'll be happy to cite artist
Amazing! Wonderfully detailed and beautifully coloured, I love this! AWESOME JOB!
So sudden and dramatic, and dear God the details, single strands of hair, cuffs, wood splinters... If I ever end up writing something about the siege of Yorktown, it will be at least partly because of this illustration.
FOR KING AND COUNTRY
I really like this a lot.
Really nice composition man. I would sharpen up where the cannonball hit a little more to help establish the focal point a little better. But thats just knit picking great job yo.
Awesome work! There is a lot of energy in this scene
