Corporal: "Hey Sarge, isn't the war already over last year? Why are we still patrolling this region?"
Sergeant: " Well~ Corporal, good question. Either someone forgot to send the memo to the enemies here or our boss missed his memo"
Corporal: " And why are our new uniform so flashy?"
Sergeant: " ... according to the boss, this is not to show off the army but to prevent our own guys from shooting each other"
Corporal: "Huh? Wouldn't that make it easier for the enemies to hit us?"
Sergeant: "In the words of the Captain, better get killed by the enemies then your own guys, and stopping asking questions!"
Corporal: "I see..."
Corporal: "... ... Sarge?"
Corporal: "you like dogs?"
Start this piece as a random practice to get myself to relax, but got too out of hand and end up spending a few days on it.
Over the course of painting this, it had gone from a desaturated moody piece to a more saturated colourful piece inspired by Oga Kazuo. And from a high tech idea to a rather low tech one.
The speech exchanges came up near the completion of the painting, it is inspired by some events of my life serving in the army.
