1917 German Machine-Gun

This is another sketch I did at the Leeds Royal Armouries SketchCrawl last weekend. I was really very pleased with it, as it is so outside my usual subject area.

It was a full-size exhibit which stopped me in my tracks. I was drawn to the eeriness of the gas mask under the helmet and tried to capture some of that disturbing facelessness in the feel of the drawing.
