Ursa Major

Here is an illustration whose line art I worked on a while ago but didn't get around to painting until now.  The idea is that during the war a prototype vehicle was designed for a soldier to traverse any and all rugged terrain.  Taking the terrain busting attributes found in a tank, a jeep and a tractor the vehicle known as the Ursa Major or Big Bear was introduced.  But do to budgeting constraints during the war effort only one vehicle was ever produced.  I originally wanted this image to be black and white to achieve the look of old World War II black and white photography.  I later decided that adding a bit of colour and making the image more monochromatic would be best.
