Summer Work - Photoshop - Birthday Card

An illustration done for an 80th birthday card for a friend of my parents.

A small story behind this idea: the recipient of this card was at one point a crewman in the Royal Armoured Corps and had the pleasure of operating a tank.

While on a training run at a tank range they managed to get their hands on a can of potatoes, and probably out of typical masculine curiosity decided to see if said spuds could be used as a projectile.

Funnily enough they succeeded and fired the can of potatoes down range and managed to blast a hole in their target. It was a most joyous moment by his account, I wish I could've been there to see it.

"Moley" is acutally the name of their pet dog, not the birthday man.
