Not coming back... by AceGekko Not coming back... by AceGekko
A finnish peacekeepet just died in Afganistan a few days ago. I myself have served as a peacekeeper and many of my friends are currently in Afganistan, so it wasn`t easy to read from the news that it might be someone you know who died there. I got home safely, but some of us aren`t just so lucky :( I was about to draw something patriotic to honor the dead soldier, but insted of tributing just one mans work I desided to do a simple and small tribute, to honor all soldiers and peacekeepers out there, who have lost their lifes doing their job, no matter what nation they represent, as long as you fight for a better tomorrow....

A normal person has 1,000 wishes. "A SOLDIER only has one, to come home safe."

R.I.P

the song that kept going in my head while drawing this [link]

What an interesting piece. It caught my eye. A wonderful tribute, and your drawing is strangely emotive. It has much charm and feeling. Nice work :)
