Lights at the Hour of Darkness by LeoXiao Lights at the Hour of Darkness by LeoXiao
This picture is part of my "Visions of the Apocalypse" collection, which is intended to be the predecessor to my manga (which is in the planning/character design stage).

It depicts a Russian armoured unit (consisting of T-72/90 and T-80 tanks) rushing into combat against NATO forces, preceded by a huge rocket barrage. Not too much else to describe here.

This work was partly inspired by a particular scene from the Animatrix episode "The Second Renaissance." All work is digitally produced in Photoshop, and required about 5 hours.

That's real warfare right there. Is the manga being released?

Those Russians and their rocket artillery. Cosidering how much they used it in WWII, I think they're pretty fond of rocket barrages :)

This is by far, the only artwork I could found that's about rocket barrage.

That's pretty much how I imagined war when I was a kid.
