The F Works




Welcome to the 7th in the series of The F Word. Recently I asked my watchers in a poll about their one favourite work by an artist in deviantART, with a reason as to why they chose it, even if it wasn't mandatory. I also have a few more wonderful works to feature as well along with some other information around deviantART including contests. With this being the 7th issue, it will have a few more thumbs than usual!
Enjoy :heart:

2DArtist Self Portrait by Charlie-Bowater
by Charlie-Bowater
"It's a self-portrait, and I like it because the warm lightning, colours and the very natural flow of the brushes. It was not created with texture brushes or so on, and is well focused on the face with a soft background."

TsuchimikadoMotoharu suggested :

A Pawn of WarI am watching over this large field tied by glowing sunset on west. On north I can see the enemy`s army coming in my direction looking at my King`s army, I can see only a very few men remain from previous battle, the same I would say from ours foe`s army yet with a remains from army with big loses to both sides reducing each Battalion to what can be said at best has become a Squad looking at men, the best of best from each forces yet the most loyal soldiers each one prepared to give away their life without looking back at this point and between this men there is me, a warrior born to sacrifice myself for my country, king and people with that in mind I come to think which could come to be my last thoughts in my life.
What come to me was only 3 things, the birth of my son and his growth until the day that come with this army until here, my wife that I can`t see forget even on this bloodish field bathed by the sun I still remember the day that I asked her to mine and her words that follow
