His OCs MSgt Dita Landucci and SgtMaj Daniel Soldino having a short break between the battlefields.
Both with USMC combat uniforms (On desert MARPAT) and holding Colt M4s with EOTechs. Ditta's M4 has a M203 Grenade Launcher (Although while drawing it I was contemplating adding it the newer M320 GL, however I lacked of the reference to draw it).
Dan's M4 has a forward handgrip instead.
It came out good. There are some stuff that bugged me during the drawing and also during the coloring.
1st thing is Ditta's smile.... yes... I know it looks bad
I drawed that smile like a 100 times and that was the best I've achieved. --; I apologize.
His request also included a LAV-25 in the background. However I was to bugged and after several attemps to include a LAV-25, I've decided to scrap that part.
The Ranks are.... well... not exactly visible.
I mean there are... but they're too small to notice. They're on both Chests. Not sure if the USMC has the ranks like that. Another thing that makes me wonder if is whetter Sergeant Majors and Master Sergeants actually get to step in to combat directly. But... the ranks are picked by the owner of the OCs. I'm just the messenger
You wouldn't kill the messenger right?
It's not 100% exactly as Boggeydan had requested but I hope it get close.
At suggestion of
I've decided not to keep using downloaded brushes (Well... if possible).
The only special brushes I used were the digital camo pattern brushes from
I'll see if in the future I can develop my own digital brushes.
Everything else was made using the default tools and brushes from PhotoShop
Not exactly something that makes the work lighter... but I guess It makes it more of my own.
The coloring was all made in PhotoShop and the Lens Flare effect was a 10 minute work with Corel PhotoPaint 12
I hope you guys like it. Imma go work on
's lineart request soon and then I will scan that plut two other linearts waiting to be colored.
Again... it could take a while before I post any new art. So if you are still patient. I thank you.
See'ya in the Battlefield!
