Illustrated Journal #21 (Christmas)


Armed with a Christmas tree by tuomaskoivurinne (DeviantArt)

This reminded me of the landscapes assignment for my foundations class. The author says that he did this with a pencil. It looks great. Also since Christmas is just around the corner I felt it appropriate to do a christmas themed illustrated journal about the unofficial truce in 1914.

The German soldier placed at the center of the piece was meant to emphasize the whole piece between the two sides. While there are no colors to be able to immediately signify that it is Christmas. The tree he is carrying does communicate it.

The Christmas theme makes this piece balanced. While the British soldier is taking up more of the image, the German holding the tree carries all the visual weight.
