Nepal Traditional Drawing Steps

MBT Ariete “Sorpresa”

Tank Drawing

A drawing featuring elements of Italian Special Forces patrolling together with an Italian MBT (Main Battle Tank) Ariete.
The drawing’s name is due to the nickname the crew gave to this particular tank “Sorpresa” (Surprise).
I took me around 15/20 hours to draw this of non continuous work (mainly evenings). I really put an Effort into lighting and shadows and hope it pays back!
Feel free to contribute with feedback.
