Expounding on Soldier Man…
The details of his face have been difficult to deal with.
I don’t always know what I want to portray in the face of the soldier. I don’t know if I want it photorealistic or illustrated or reduced to the flatest of 2-D.
I’m currently opting for somewhere in between.
We can look off past the soldier for a photorealistic look at war’s actuality.
War is all around us. The 2-D soldier becomes a representative icon for war. It is a sign, like a stop sign.
