Dangerous Universe

The Forever War 2

This was a preliminarily drawing I completed in preparation for a painting almost five years ago. I really like the drawing but HATE how the finished painting turned out. I still have the painting but am not going to put it on the site. It's awful!

There's a whole bunch of symbolic bull going on in the drawing; the pressure gauge on the figure's chest looks like a clock (since the war takes place over a long amount of time), the sword pierces the Earth on the flag, etc., etc., etc. I'm sure if you look closely at the drawing you'll find even more of these hidden symbols. I have no idea why these are in the drawing. Maybe I was going through my "pompous" stage.
