DescriptionThis is a pencil, graphite and conte crayon drawing of the deadly SdKfz 181 Tiger Tank. Armed with a powerful 88mm main gun, the tiger entered production in August 1942 and over 1300 were built by August 1944. The Tigers had taken a heavy toll on allied armour by the end of the war.
Daniel Bollans, Great Yarmouth Member Since November 2008 Artist Statement Hello and thanks for taking the time to look at my profile.
I enjoy working in pencil, charcoal, pen and inks for my drawings, sometimes utilising a mixture of all these mediums to create my artworks.
I use Acrylics and Oils for my paintings.
Subject matters which appeal to me, and which I will be concentrating on are Warfare, Armoured Vehicles and Tanks, Aviation, and Naval Warships. I also love to produce artwork of a dark nature on fantasy, horror, gothic and evil type themes.
I am a devotee of death and black metal music, and this has influenced my artistic direction.
I am a freelance illustrator of imagery with evil/horror themes and provide CD cover artworking in traditional and digital formats and logo designs for death and black metal bands, promoters, labels, etc. These are normally pen and ink drawings, although I also work digitally. You can view some of this work on my myspace page at the link above.
I have various tattoos, and love dark tattoo imagery. I can provide artwork for tattoo designs, and again, some of these can be viewed on my myspace page.
This profile is currently being worked on, so please be patient. I will be uploading some images in the next few weeks.
