This is a picture of the Soviet T-10 heavy tank(IS8). What inspired me to draw this picture was what i read from a book i own called " Weapons of the Modern Soviet Ground Forces... Major Equipment of Today's Red Army". The book was written in the middle 80's and it states that quote" Surprisingly, it appears that the Soviet Army still intends to use this tank to provide long-range anti-tank support, and possibly as the spearhead of an armored thrust on a vital sector, where its very thick armor would provide protection." So i thought it would be cool to do a World War 3 drawing taking place sometime in the late 70's in Europe. Other vehicles featured in the drawing are the T72 (burning tank) MI-24A(early version of Hind), MI-17 transport helicopter, Su-17 Fitter ground attack, Mig 21(one getting blown the hell up and one flying high in the sky) and the brave American F-4 Phantom on the right. The drawing is a bit busy, but war is hell... Tell me your thoughts BELOW and thank you to all my watchers. Also if anyone can find a Cool Metal song that would describe this drawing it always fascinates me to listen to them when you have posted them on other drawings and to that i say thank you!!!! And thank you all for the 70,000+ views on my artwork i really appreciate it.. And i will have more cool drawings in the future.

na when I was Sixteen i wasn't a quarter as good as I am no all id do was argue with the art teachers about wanting to draw what i wanted and they finally started letting me then i got accepted into the advance class but I spent most of high school doodling in class(grades went from A's and B's to B's and C's) all it takes is practice failing practices winning failing practice repeat hell i dont even think my work is that great anyhow but i still do it. Im only 24 so Ill keep at it and I encourage all to do the same and try new ideas and techniques as well

If you ever get the chance check out "Red Thrust", although written in '89 it depicts from a number of perspectives what this drawing portrays..awesome drawing

im guessin 1 drop of ink at the wrong place is gonna ruin the whole thing, better start drawing with ink and pens right away, wont let u down master!

shank117 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
im not a master it just takes some practice and lots of focus on where you put the pen and use hatching if you want it like mine but also try to find your own groove your own way of how you master the pen if you try to directly copy someone else's technique then you wont realize your full potential

*thick armour*

Yeah... not in WoT though ^^
But perhaps irl it had very thick armour for its time period, I'm not well-informed about that era.

This eerily remembers me of Command&Conquer Red alert. I can already hear the game theme song playing...
