For this tutorial I wanted to celebrate the fourth of July by making the silhouette image of the Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima which is a popular photograph taken by Joe Rosenthal back on February 23, 1945. The picture is of five United States Marines and one United States Navy Corpsman raising a heavy pole which has the United States flag at the top. The location where the flag was raised is on Mount Suribachi during World War II when we where battling Iwo Jima. The Marine Corps War Memorial is located next to the Arlington National Cemetery just outside of Washington, D.C. The silhouette in this lesson is just a glimpse of what these men felt like when raising the United States flag. I hope you enjoy this tutorial on drawing troops from the Marine Corps. Stick around because there is more for you all to see.
