I don't understand this whatsoever. All I see is a soldier and an anime girl.

bring more contrast to blood impact on her head add some depth of field to the blood splatting down the street, give it a little more realism

Is it anyway related to japanese popart moviment "Superflat", by Takashi Murakami?
Because it has a bit the feeling of the critics he makes to the empty consumism in Japan's society. He uses mainstream visuals based on anime&manga, creates a disturbing yet attarctive kind of art (and product) and passes down his messages, in the paradoxal form, by letting people consume his own art.
But if not, it doesn't affect your great work!

If only our world leaders, and our politicians, and all of the generals, in every army, could view this painting, and the others in your series, and if only they could absorb even a fraction of the messages... could we ever dream of a world where the innocents could remain such? Such an awe-inspiring work, GH, you are powerful in technique, and powerful in message.

I think it's interesting how you incorporated a figure with a realistic scene.

Nice work, thought this was a digital collage from the image alone. Amazing technique and composition choices.

No, itīs oil and acrylic on canvas, and this is not "nice", is a masterpiece, more respect to the master Helnwein, kid.

You missed the part where they said "THOUGHT" it was a digital collage. It's actually a magnificent compliment. Did you forget your pills this morning? Incredible painting sir, really beautiful.
