Sniper in the Ruins by Shimmering-Sword Sniper in the Ruins by Shimmering-Sword
Done in an oc with Stuki, pretty messy stuff. I need to get more color in my gallery.

Just a Ranger SpecOp sniper pair setting up in some ruined building.

Man, This reminds me of some older games i use to play like "Second life" but even then combat in that game was unwelcome because people could spawn explosive right were you are.

here is a problem i keep coming across:

i draw soldiers with helmets as well and these helmets dont have visors. mainly the sight is through camera optics such. so the problem is, why use a scope? i still put them on rifles but i think, why not just put zoom into the optics of the helmet? maybe you can help?

Well, to aim purely with the helmet optics you would need a vectoring device on the rifle to determine its exact position in relation to the helm, and exactly what direction it's pointing in. That in my opinion may be too complex or fragile, and if there is anything off your shots wont be very accurate.
You could use an IR laser that your hud locates the end point of, but that can be detected by the enemy, I'm sure in the future at least vehicles will notify the crew when it has been "lased". Any enemy helm with IR detection would be able to see it if not warn of it.

Using a scope with an uplink to the helm could be melded into the view. It would likely provide better magnification and more accurate shots. It is passive, so it isn't detectable by enemy units. Also, if your helm is broken, you can take it off and use the scope manually.
You could use a smaller camera device, but you may as well fit a scope for backup use.

I like the helmet designs, and the brushwork is good for such a loose piece!

Helmet design is fun and challenging, to get a nice design without copying.

I like this piece, I think it has the right atmosphere. the only thing that I think is strange is the very short barrel on the sniperrifle. maybe you could experiment with it because to me it now looks more like a scoped assault rifle. still it's a very nice piece ;)

Ah, yea its not a very long one, it is bullpup though. I'd say the barrel is long enough for a conventional sniper, this ones 50cal though, so yea.

Ya, I pose all the time when I'm setting up a long range ambush. "Let me take these precious few minutes to pose for you, mister photographer, instead of making sure this rifle is clean, watching enemy movements, etc."

As a former sniper I'm going to call bullshit on Extraintelegence's claim. Snipers regularly pose for cameramen because of how boring sniper missions actually are: [link] I was so excited to be a sniper, until about 2 days into my first mission, and I hadn't seen jack shit, and was bored out of my mind.
