Facing the inner terrors

A keyframe where I wanted to explore a rather dark and heavy topic of trench warfare during the Great War. The horrors of men that had to fight, follow orders and throw their lives away to, for many, never come back home. I guess majority of people in Europe have someone like that in their family history who never came back from either of the World Wars, many of very young age. It's a weird and abstract thought to me, really jarring.

Anyway! Had a good time working on this piece and hope it manages to evoke some feeling and you can feel the mood. Big shoutout to Šimon Gočál for help and overpaint on characters!
