Freeman by JW-Jeong Freeman by JW-Jeong
pencil on paper / 18 x 25cm

It's one of the drawings that I did during my military service from early 2009 to late 2010. This one was completed literally inside the bunker.
Some of you may be startled to know that I used to be a soldier, but in South Korea, it's mandatory for all able-bodied men to do 22 months of military service.
Fortunately, I worked for the Intelligence Command thanks to my English ability and I spent most of my days compiling and translating documents.
I did many drawings during my service, but only a few of them are in my hands now since most them were given away to my 'comrades' as either a gift or a bribe for an extra time-off.

Ooooooo you've perfectly captured his godly expression haha xD But in all seriousness, the level of focus and detail is amazing, and the way it fades back iinto a sketch works rather well. The facial hair is just awesome, too.

The only reason the sunrises is because Morgan Freeman narrated it. Emperor penguins didn't exist until March of the Penguins was created. You are able to draw so good because Morgan Freeman is narrating your life. He's that good

Wow, great job! This image warms my heart! I'm glad to hear that you could pursue your talent and that it paid off in the military. In America, the recruiters for the military will call you up when you're in high school. One called and asked if I was interested in enrolling in the military. I asked, "Could you use any artists?" to which he replied, "Uh, um, no." If he was thinking, he could've said something to the effect of "Oh, well, you could be useful in design or whatever." or spin it somehow but he didn't. Keep drawing and don't stop!

haha, I think I read in a book that Norman Rockwell himself used to serve in military during the World War, and he spent most of his time painting on fighters and artilleries :)
