Rifleman by Shimmering-Sword Rifleman by Shimmering-Sword
As of late my art has really dropped off, I'm so out of practice now and it makes me mad at myself.
Gonna cut gaming out, and try to spend less time aimlessly on the internet (even DA is a killer).

Done a few drawings lately too embarrassing to post, but this one is edging on postable so here you go.

I really like the way this looks, its got the sketch look but gets the design and the pieces in place. Very nice job.

I bet you'd like the illustrator Yoji Shinkawa :P

He does all the concept art and character sketched for Metal Gear, but I think you'd like his style

He's got nice art, wouldn't call it something that would inspire a shift in my technique though. At least, I don't think I can be that loose and still control the forms, not any time soon :)
The general design philosophies in the MGS games though, I love.

Reminds me of that failed FPS RTS For C&C called Tiberium. Helmet reminds me of the Commander.

I see what you mean.
Whats funny is I think that looks like it'd be a sweet game and yea the helms look similar. But I've actually never seen or heard anything of it until recently when someone else pointed it out like you did.

hmmm. More practice! I need to catch up so that I can post futuristic military stuff on here, so I decided to work with hands I thought I would want my characters to talk with their hands while they talk (or aren't talking), any advice?

:iconshimmering-sword:
Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I can never really offer much advice, like for hands, I would just say draw hands. A side note though, if your good enough to be doing individual parts studies, you should be good enough to post your general work here :)

Haha, I started with a black silouete and built into it. Added all the color in PS with levels and texture overlays.

really now? just a silhouette and then went from there? Gonna have to try that again.

I was having major trouble getting the mass/bulk of my infantry drawings correct, starting from a solid black form does well for establishing good weight and an interesting silhouette.

As I try with everyone, I act like I agree a little bit, it is rough around the edges. Is that what your talking about. The design is great,like Bountydog said it practical, with great psychological warfare about it.

Nah I can still get clean results, but I'm having trouble getting good poses, anatomy, and concepts. In general feeling dissatisfied with my work.
But thanks for seeing use for it, the favs are appreciated too.

That's pretty cool there bubba'. It's a Helgan's wet-dream as far as body armor goes, lol. I really like it though, as it has a good balance of praticality and raw, psychological "yipes" to it. Yipes is where it's at man, gotta' have the yipes :)

Glad you like it man. I've never really refd Helgans before (just awed), and I'm afraid if I do mine will look even more like theirs :P
Thanks for faving it too, dark infantry ftw.
