Saigon Parade

A hot afternoon in Saigon, Fun Capital of a nation at war, 1965- South Vietnam’s military display their might in a parade passing Saigon City Hall (on the right). The soldiers carried the RVN flags, and behind them the soft slap of Women’s Brigade cadets twirling their batons, with bare feet and blue uniform dresses with sash and lapels. The RVN air force- ex-USAF T28s roar over the trees. While the parade marches down the boulevard saluted by South Vietnamese leaders and American bureaucrats, in the jungle and paddy fields only a few miles away the war escalates…

Double Bubble!

A pair of bubble blowing flight attendants click-clack through the airport to their next flight!

Their uniforms are designed to look like a classic aviator, the colors reflect the 1940s aviator jackets go great with matching short shorts and heels.

Parasoul in the Rain by kingofthedededes73
You are one of the most prolific artists I have ever seen. 5000 deviations is mind blowing, even though many are photography, you still churn out drawings faster than anyone I’ve seen. I thought I’d mention that first, because though it’s clearly a strength to be so productive, it can also lead to weaknesses. I haven’t done an official critique in a long time, I’m going to do it the most common way I’ve seen and get weaknesses out of the way first.

The first thing I notice with your drawings is that they look like they are done quickly. Having a fast drawing style is not a bad thing at all- the trick is to find a way to make a fast drawing also look elegant. For example- you can gain elegance with her umbrella by using a lot less pencil; modifying to a design that does not require so much pencil. Perhaps make it appear clear, with a hint of pink (like a transparent pink plastic). The black color can work if you make it all black, with more gentle strokes- for example the pencil strokes on her hair are superb- but the yellow parts on the umbrella don’t come off the way you probably intended and my first thought seeing the umbrella was “what is that?”. The strokes used on the lamp post are also too heavy, refer back to her hair- it should be lighter and shinier. The last weak bit is with hands- hands and fingers that appear too large or awkward- a lot of people don’t realize how important the hands are. The best suggestion I can make is to think of hands as being graceful and slender. The perspective is way too steep- the horizon should actually be at the level of her hips or so, and then you would see sky, although this is not the most important thing in the world it’s just something I notice with any drawing.
Now for the good stuff- you have some delightful ideas in your art. You approach art the same way I do and it’s rare- you think of something fun inspired by real life and not pop culture- and then you draw the idea out of your mind. I know you mentioned that the girl is based a game character, but really there was no need to you could have called her your own just as easily (most of us would never know the difference). The girl has a elegance with her hair and her suit with short skit is perfect for the scene ;) and even though it’s simple I like the expression she has. You did a great job with her feet this time (except for the part where you cropped off the bottom- the most important part of this kind of picture is how her foot meets the puddle and makes a splash- and it’s cut out!) I like the overall colors you chose; red, blue, green, and yellow are present and distributed into different parts to make a good use of color theory. I like how with every drawing, despite the trouble you put in a full background and fill the entire paper with pencil. A lot of people I see these galleries full of characters standing against white which is meaningless- you seem to really understand how a character doesn’t come alive unless they’re doing something. The reason people like your drawings is because you have pictures of characters doing all kind of dynamic things, the fact that you take the time and trouble to make a full scene like you do says a lot about your potential as an artist.

I have a drawing in my gallery somewhere of a woman splashing in a puddle with an umbrella exactly the same way, it’s a tragic looking drawing- but if you want to look at it just to see different ways of dealing with rain and wetness I’m pretty sure it’s a good reference for that. Best of luck to you.

Today is a huge holiday in one country, that most Americans (unsurprisingly) don’t know about. Forty years since the end of the war in Vietnam, the Vietnamese national holiday known as “Liberation Day”, when the US-supported South Vietnam regime surrendered to People’s Army on April 30, 1975. For Vietnamese this is the end of 30 years of war that 3 million lives claimed, the devastation of nearly the entire country and still covered with unexploded landmines, and nearly half the rural population in the south into refugees. For Americans it’s a day of shame, for the country that believes in “no apologies” isn’t surprising this is being ignored by the news and not talked about in schools. The reasons for this are both sinister, and sad. 

“My name is Jack Regald… My testimony is about the indiscriminate murder of innocent civilian women and children, torture of prisoners for fun and other reasons…”

“My name is Joe Bangerd… My testimony will cover the slaughter of civilians, the skinning of a Vietnamese woman…”

“My name is Scott Camille… My testimony involves the burning of villages with people in them, the cutting off of ears, calling in artillery on villages for games, napalm dropped on villages, women being raped, women and children being massacred, CS gas used on people, animals being slaughtered, bodies shoved out of helicopters….”

This is the disgusting truth about America’s “Vietnam War”. This is what our glorious troops did to the Vietnamese people during the “Tour of Duty” in the 1960s and early 1970s. The same book I transcribed this testimonials from elaborates on the atrocities:

“In the diary she kept.. Clare Cullhane (a nurse at NGO hospital) wrote of- endless cases of women and children being run down by tanks, of GIs picking off children as they swam out to pick up food cartons from and overturned truck, of pilots inviting passengers for human ‘turkey shoots’”

Helicopter crews had a particularly bad reputation. As early as 1963 veteran war correspondent Richard Tregaskis described members of the 362nd Helicopter Squadron as “wild men… one chopper would go first… and when the people would go running, the second plane would spray ‘em”… James Duffy, a helicopter gunner with the 1st Air Cavalry, recalled “our company policy was to just keep on firing… I had fired at all the military targets I could spot and I looked out across the field and I spotted a Vietnamese woman peasant running away from the ship. I fired a burst of about six or second rounds into her back before we hit the ground. A couple of weeks later he and his company commander had “a good laugh about it.”

The worst of it took place at a village called My Lai-4 in 1968. The soldiers who moved into the area justified their slaughter of 500 people- all of them unarmed- all of them women, children and old people- on the grounds that they faced an invisible enemy; that children had frequently acted as scouts for the Viet-Cong, and suffered dozens of casualties from a minefield days before…

As the Americans approached…villagers began to flee across the open fields and were immediately shot down. The 2D Platoon…swept through the northern half of My Lai hurling grenades and setting fire to family shelters, calling occupants out of their homes and gunning them down, raping and then murdering village girls… they gang raped several more girls before rounding up ten to twenty women and children and killing them on the spot. Some civilians were killed when they emerged from their homes. Others were rounded up and moved toward a drainage ditch on the southeastern border of the hamlet where 75 to 150 villagers were shot to death at Lt Calley’s command.

At one point, the men of the 3D Platoon herded together a group of women and children and sprayed them with M16 fire. A half dozen other wounded villagers were killed ‘to put them out of their misery’.

“They just kept shooting at her,” said photographer Ron Haeberle, “You could see the bones flying in the air chip by chip.” A woman staggering out of a hut weeping, her dead baby in her arms… she took only a few steps before one of them en with Capt. Medina shot her down them “opened up” the dead baby with his M16.

“Some of the guys seemed to be having a lot of fun” said PFC Herbert Carter, “They were wisecracking and yelling ‘Chalk that one up for me!’

“I remember this one group, a little distance away. Maybe there were ten people, most of them women and little kids, huddled all together and you could see they were really scared, they just couldn’t seem to move. Anyway, he turns around toward them and lets fly with a grenade. It landed right in the middle of them. You could hear the screams and then the sound and then see the pieces of bodies scatter out, and the whole area just suddenly turned red like somebody had turned on a faucet.”

This is not just a massacre by a few bad soldiers. As shown by the testimony at the start- this was a widespread, systematic destruction of the lives of innocent Vietnamese peasants throughout the war. This is what America did, to keep Vietnam divided, to prevent the unification of the country under a socialist government. We went into villages, and if suspecting one of the residents was a “VC” (a communist supporter), the entire village would be torched, the people herded into trucks, and dumped in another field somewhere and told to get moving. We turned HALF the population of rural South Vietnam into refugees. And after we bombed North Vietnam back to the 18th century, and flew hundreds of B-52 runs over Hanoi to bomb civilian neighborhoods to terrorize the North Vietnamese into signing a “peace treaty” in Paris- the result of the Christmas Bombing of Hanoi in 1972 in which a dozen B-52s were shot down and thousands of people killed- Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. If it sounds sickening, that’s because it is. We uprooted millions of people, burned their homes, used chemical weapons to destroy entire forests and farmland, used napalm against human beings, and dropped enough bombs on Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia to be five times as many explosives as used in all of World War Two.

One of the many excuses used to justify the mass murder is that our "enemy" was also committing atrocities. This ignores the fact that we were invading THEIR COUNTRY and taking a side in their civil war. In the below documentary, the Viet Cong are said to have killed "37,000 people" during the war years. However, the American anti-insurgent programs killed many times this- even the CIA man William Colby admits in a Congressional hearing in 1971 on the so-called 'Phoenix' program- a sinister program of search and assassination in Vietnam- some 27,000 people are killed, at least 75% of them Colby admits were probably not even communists; and this is just this one program alone.

The travesty of the Vietnam War is something this whole country owns. It is not the evil deeds of a few soldiers, it is a shameful chapter in the history of our intervention in the affairs of other nations- the violation of basic human rights, the consistent opposition to the right to free-determination and liberty of the peoples of the Third World. I wish more people to know about this so that we can see that the American ‘big stick’ is not and will never be a welcome presence in foreign nations.

I’m not surprised nobody knows about, talks about, or thinks about this war. It was an atrocity, something Americans want to forget and mostly have.

The thread I was talking to you on is now closed, so I'm leaving my reply here:

It was 4:30 AM and I was tried, give me a break. The points I made were valid, regardless.

I never said anything about it being attractive, or ugly man. I could care less either way, just because someone is pretty doesn't give them the right to talk to me is if I'm cheap. If I wanted to get with someone I'd try getting to know them a bit, and being sexual from the start is NOT how you do that 99.9% of the time.

People who base relationships purely off sex, hardly ever work out (with good reason - they didn't get to know who they jumped in the sack with). Sure looks help (male or female), but it matters if you treat a potential partener with respect or not. And again being sexual from the start is not respecting, in most cases.

I haven't looked at my page comments in a while... I see you've posted something that sounds reasonable about a thread that was closed, which I must say I've forgotten about entirely.
Anyway, as far as basing relationships off sex- well yea, it's not really a way to start or hold a relationship, it's just going to be a fling in that case. 4:30 AM... geez get some sleep! Don't stay up that late (or early) get some sleep and return to it the next morning!
