All Our Battles

Heres my somewhat finished entry. I say somewhat finished because there was a stoppage at the last hurdle. Well, I got distracted *cough*Mass Effect 2*cough*

Well anyway, this is something I envisioned when I listened to Europa by Globus. I wanted something fairly epic in scale and heroic like a scene of a rally cry. I am a big fan of using up-shots to enhance the epic feel, like you are mere mortals looking up at these towering figures. I kept enlarging the size of the flag too, a small one felt out of place in the scale I was trying to convey so it kept being sized up. Ive included a second song too! Consider it the after theme for the painting. Its Proud Nation by Immediate Music (the same people as Globus).

Great posing hoben, I accompanied it with the first track you posted and got chills... love that brushwork on the flag. I think this is my fav of your recent jumbles :)
