I could really use your ideas...

Postby Owl Jones » Fri Jan 18, 2013 12:04 pm

I'm stuck. This is a commission for a gun store in my town. I'm still working on the soldier, but my main concern is that I need something for the middle. I was thinking of the boots on a gun stuck in the ground. I don't want (nor do they) planes or tanks or that kind of thing - and I don't think the 9-11 buildings are appropriate here.

Any ideas? I'm open to anything military or patriotic. Maybe just an American flag in the background?

A tricky one and I don't know what the store owner has suggested to you but so far I think you are suggesting army surplus or recruitment rather than gun store. The one thing missing from your painting so far are guns.

maybe a faded eagle so it doesnt take away from what your main picture is. seems to go with your theme.

I believe that is a great idea! Image (you already have a flag)

There's a gun. He wanted a military theme. They already have lots of guns (real and signage) in the store. Thanks for the input.
