I'm trying to paint this competition painting to remembrance of 50 years of the 1971 Indo-Pak war and birth of Bangladesh. Problem that I'm facing is lack of Indian Army photos probably due to secrecy of the operations. I have to rely on this Getty image below which is the most exemplary and there aren't many sources like this. Most of the times it is about Indian Army arriving at Bangladesh but not going to Bangladesh.
I have changed considerably but the overall structure still is indicative of the Getty image. Any suggestions are welcome to move it away from the Getty image.
Changes that I made:
- changes to the landscape, but need to change the fundamental structure. Will look for more photos.
- Land's surface
- Personnel's posture (sketches below)
- Changed tire tracks into heavy caterpillar tracks of the tanks
- added mass exodus of people
- Added tanks as vehicles
This is a Adobe app sketch based on my observations. But any suggestions regarding this are welcome esp. about changing the overall composition.
