A while ago, as a part of the Covid-19 Coloring Book, I posted the Soviet IS-3 tank on a bed of roses. The idea was to have a coloring book (or at least one sheet) for “tank inspired” dads & children, when staying home during the pandemic.
So far, I haven’t seen one fully colored example.
But I gave it a try myself (in Photoshop) and as it turned out, coloring the actual tank was great fun. I used the same technique as for many of the other drawings on this site – with three different hues for every base color. Finally I added some lights and darks and also some blended in rust.
When continuing with the roses, I gave up after only five … so the BED of roses is … a small bed of roses.
