Small victory, not the war... yet by DJMadameNoir Small victory, not the war... yet by DJMadameNoir
UNSC Marines raising their flag at the end of battle, signifying a single victory in a war with many more to come, as the Covenant fly to another area.

I've been wanting to do this piece ever since I saw the picture of the models, so glad I finally did one that worked out the way I wanted!

I really wanted that gritty/dirty feel to the picture, because combat is anything but clean.

Fantastic work using the photo (as source) of the costumers planting the UNSC flag at an event and placing into a very appropriate background/warzone.

Really does capture the plight of Humanity in the Covernant War.

Well done :D

Dude! You are amazing! I thought this was a photograph, but upon close examination I found out you drew/painted it!

Thank you so much! :)

It's not a drawing or painting, it is a photo manipulation, if you click the links in the description, you can see the original pictures.
