The Manhattan Project by Rahll The Manhattan Project by Rahll
Commission for a graduating EOD technician and his class. For those of you who don't know, it stands for Explosive Ordnance Disposal, and these guys have a seriously dangerous job. I have a lot of respect for them, and it's only fitting to portray them as calm under pressure, because the slightest muck-up can be the difference between life and a very chunky death. "Initial success, or total failure."

Supposedly this is going up in their Nukes Division.

Hope you guys like it.

Absolutely massive thanks go to `adonihs for all the input on this one, I really don't know what I'd do without him sometimes. Also, huge thanks to =CaelestisTrucido for keeping me company through the long nights of working on it.

Also, parts of this are matte, but it's been heavily worked on, just so there's no confusion

It does indeed reside in the nukes division.  Now I know where it came from.  Amazing work.

You know the story - not entirely accurate, but very creative and works great for imagination.

Dude, sweet! I saw this in Nukes (by far one of the best pieces in the division-if not the whole school)! Just browsing deviantArt for stuff relating to EOD, great work!

Seen this painting in the Nuke Division of school a few years ago. Was great work. Have it on my ipod as well as a background.

Appreciate the hard work put into it

I can't say enough about EOD.

You're work gets close.
