Combat beauty by Panzerfire Combat beauty by Panzerfire
Boy... I did upload a lot today ^^;
Well... better a lot than not at all :D

This drawing was made.... Over a year ago! I said then I'd color this. Well... it's done! :) The uncolored version is in my gallery.

It's a USMC soldier. MARPAT says it all.

One thing I've been practicing for this was actually the MARPAT camo. This time I had the tools and the reference. The refrerence were some pics of the camo and the tools was this: [link] by :iconxenosilence:

And I also use clouds textures (Again...) from :iconredheadstock: and :iconmiloartdesign:

I hope you like it. Now I am officially out of work to upload (And this time is for real) ^^; So now the wait starts.

Are you goingto be patient enough? ;)
Until then.... See'ya in the battlefield :salute:

I am currently working with some friends on a sci-fi comic called Zirconia. We have two chapter published so far. But the comic is exclusively in Spanish for the time being and it's being sold only in San Juan Argentina until we can arrange its distribution around the country and perhaps overseas as well. It is an independent publication.

The comic is non-military however. So it has very little (If anything) to do with the stuff I have posted here in Deviantart.

I do have plans however for a military themed comic (To be printed in both paper or digitally) or alternatively do the same story in a YouTube animation series. I got the tools to do that, just need the practice and a team to work on stuff that I can't make on my own, like sounds and 3-D models. But that's a very long shot and tbh it's well possible I never get to work on either.

good pic, but nobody's face looks pretty after going through combat, they look like they came out of a warzone, and bombshelled out, there is nothing soft about combat, however the body does look pretty burning a bazillion calories a day.

I think that the flag is backwards. :( I shun you for not knowing how to draw the United States flag. But nice picture! :)

Actually, when worn on the right shoulder, the US Flag is reversed. If worn on the left, the flag remains as the original.

But I believe those are actually US Army uniform standars... and not sure if they still apply.

In the USMC, the US Flag is not worn at all. So the presence of the flag itself is a mistake in this picture.

Found this one through a search for USMC - found your lineart from 2007, and had to see how you made it turn out.

Love your work, crisp lines, outstanding work on the camo...

Just... one... point, if I may? Marines don't wear patches on their uniforms - just a nametape above the right breast pocket and a "U.S. Marines" tape above the left breast pocket, with an Eagle, Globe and Anchor insignia on the left pocket.

But aside from that (and, honestly, it's your picture, do as you will! ), an outstanding picture. I like the look of her - sorta like she's daring you to say something to her about her not needing to be there.

Female Marines are still Marines - same attitude, same ability to kick your ass, if necessary!

Thanks. I'm glad you like it.

Regarding patches on USMC uniforms I've just got aware of that detail a few days ago. I will keep it in mind for future artwork. :)

Wow, very nicely done. I like the way you drew the face. I have to ask though, and no offense meant by the question; is that a girl or a guy? I mean, the hair looks long enough to be a girl. Anyway, love the art. Will definitely be saving this piece.

I love your gallery! You're the first artist I've come across who has female soldiers who aren't all stripteases. :w00t!: I've been doing the Marine training in preperation for Navy enlistment (it's insane!), and I admire the Marines for all the work they put into becoming part of the USMC. :salute:

I just feel outclassed by the drawing, I never did too well with people, but I'm finally starting to get the hang of Tanks. But I gave all those ones away. :(

For CADPAT I think its the industrial spin off here being Canadian Designed and mass produced plus the first standard issue Camo here. Plus the US Special Forces in Afghanistan borrowed it a lot for nighttime missions because its properties which make troops near-invisible to IR and nightvision devices. A former CF Warrant Officer, who was in the initial 2002 invasion force told me that neat little fact about CADPAT B-)
