Enemy Contact (WIP) by Panzerfire Enemy Contact (WIP) by Panzerfire
Captain Kathe Ryan: Corporal! We got enemy infantry approaching! Make it rain metal!

Alternatively would be:

Ryan: What you mean "I didnt sign up for this shit"?! THIS IS EXACTLY THE KIND OF SHIT YOU SIGNED UP FOR!!!

:D Ahhhhh silly corporal. :lmao:

Just playing with recurring theme in some recent war/action movies where some military personnel scream at some point "I didn't sign up for this shit!" despite how ironic that comment is. :XD:

Anyways, here we see another of my OCs Captain Kathe Ryan of the 3rd Battalion 5th Marines (Or simply the 3/5) that falls under command of the 5th Marine Regiment and the 1st Marine Division engaging in combat with the UAR's regular army in the Eastern Saudi Desert as part of the Arabian Peninsula campaign. BTW the motto of the 3/5 is "Get some" :iconbadassplz:

Not much to tell about the picture. Doesnt have as much awesome detail as the "Dismounting" picture But I tried to compensate that by tring to get as much of the uniform details as accurate as possible. They're not 100% perfect but I think I've made a remarkable improvement on the gear compared to previous USMC works I made. Kathe's pose was a bit hard and didnt quite turned out allright but compared to previous attempts, I am happy with that nonetheless.

No vehicles or fancy perspective angles im afraid but hopefully my next Combat picture will be a bit more awesome which will include our favourite psychopath Captain Kahoru Fujiwara and some of her JGSDF troops during combat in Japan. It'll be my first attempt at drawing Helicopters in a long while ;D So it should be awesome. But first I need to do a special project that I commited myself to do recently. It's gonna be a surprise, except for those people that frequent my chatroom. They know EXACTLY what's coming. :XD:

I am still without a computer of my own. Therefore I cannot color this picture or the next few ones for the time being. ^^; I've made some math and I need to gather some 600 Euros to get my computer upgraded. So I'm considering taking commisions again (Lineart only though) to save up money for a new rig. I first need to get a bank account so that I can make Paypal work for this porpouse. But... that can take a long while.

Anyway, I hope you guys like this.

I'll see you on the Battlefield! :salute:

That smartass corporal will get beaten to death. And not by the enemy. ;P

Very nice work PZ, can't wait to see your coloring later on xP
Hey, don't forget the vertical lines on the MOLLE webbing system :D
Panzerfire Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
lol this is already scanned. Too lazy to grab the drawing and draw the vertical lines and then shelve another 10 ARS to have it scanned again. ^^;

I'll try to remember doing that in PhotoShop once I get to color this.

Yeah, it shouldn't be hard to fix with vector lines, hopefully =P
Panzerfire Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
lol, for that kind of fix, the pen tool is more than enough. ;)
