Wow! You got brilliant detailed artworks, but as a finn i consider this my favourite.
I'm sure that our war veterans would really like this one.
You have my respects.

Wow, nice job! I have always admired the Finnish for their heroic defense against the Soviets in 1939. I am especially impressed by the ski soldiers and the snipers like Simo Hayha.

The work here reminds me of the blending between the graphite pencil drawings merged with extracts of the movie, in the introduction of "The Pacific" series.
No criticism for him. But one against the soldier drawn here, because of his sloppy and unsufficient helmet camouflage. :-3

Absolutely top notch mate, top notch. Swedish M40 helmet, summer battledress with sweater underneath, really displays the Finnish soldier of the era perfectly.

Though, if I recall correctly the Russian forces weren't exactly in tip-top shape. . . Regardless of that, the Fins are awesome. :D

oh really? ^^; they seem so similar was one of them based on the other? Because I know Finland used russian made mosin nagants against them but I recall that the Russian Ak-47 was directly based on the German STG-44
