For you muchachos by Panzerfire For you muchachos by Panzerfire
Note: Before you fave make sure if you haven't faved it before as I uploaded this over the Black and White W.I.P. picture. ;)

Requested by :iconveganmarine: over two years ago. Sorry for the delay man. :)

This is a UNSCDF Marine saying "Here's a little gift for you muchachos!".... then proceeds to throw a M9 High-Explosive Dual-Purpose Grenade at a group of Covenant troops (probably pulling this face: :iconlolwhutplz:). :icongrenadeplz:

Because no matter what time, place or faction they are... Marines rule the f*cking battlefield!

Please kids, do not try this at home nor in the actual Battlefield, I shall not be held responsible if anyone tries to pull this one off with horrible consequences. =P


Allrighty, this one came out pretty good, better than I actually thought it would turn out. Surprisingly enough, it also took far less than I thought it would. Like with most projects I thought I'd be working on this for around a week and instead I managed to pull it off in less than three days. Hurray! :D

In this project I attempted to recreate an explosion in the background. My gallery surprisingly lacks explosions so thanks to :iconvjptox:'s suggestion I decided to work on one.
I've only used brushes avalaible from PS and no brushes downloaded from the internet (There are plenty of explosion brushes out there but under the people's advice I'm trying to be as much independent from using other people's tools). It turned out pretty good but I still need more practice at it. So that one shall not be the last one :) .

Those HALO fans will probably notice that the Marine's gear is... well... quite different in appearance to the gear seen in the HALO series (Specially the most recent games), this is so because instead of using screenshots as reference as I should have done, I ended up using concept art pictures instead.... and yeah also some screenshots from the older games. ^^;

My apologies but since I'm not a HALO fan I never really got much into it. =P

Ahhh the trouble since this is not the last HALO work I will do. I got another on the "stuff pending to do" list. :faint:


Anyway, I hope you like this. :)

I'll get to all your comments ASAP so don't worry if I haven't replied to your comments yet.

See'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

...don't marines rule the sea and ground forces the land?
Reply
:iconpanzerfire:
Panzerfire Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
The Sea is the Navy's job ;) The Marines in most military forces are usually ment to provide an infantry contingent for the Navy. Providing it with the capacity to board other ships or launch amphibious operations on different scales.

In the US however the Marines constitute a whole branch of it's own although it still falls under the Department of the Navy. The American Marines can conduct virtually the same kind of operations like the US Army but are also capable of doing Marine Infantry related missions which the Army cannot.


UNSC Marines from the HALO universe while modeled on the USMC are not quite the same as the actual USMC in terms of combat capacity. Like the UNSC Marines are a large mix of different branches on its own.

;) Well this may be a direct reference to that. Wouldn't you think?

Meh I can't say for sure as I'm not a HALO player. Venganmarine who requested this picture probably took the phrase from the game itself but I don't know. He made the request late 2008 and I don't know if Halo: Reach was released before that.

lol...me and some buddies went out to LA to a firing range to chuck some grenades...it was one of those big machine gun shoots and all that jazz...so we get out there and my pal...Frankie...he STUPIDLY pulled the pin a grenade and then he accidentally released the spoon...for a full second I just stared at the nade then I was like...THROW IT YOU IDIOT...he freaked and fumbled the damn thing...it fell down the embankment and we all just dove for the deck as the thing rolled to a stop near a derelict car...it exploded and shot shrapnel all up the embankment...fortunately no one was injured but Frankie never again went near the nades...xD

:rofl:

LOL That's gotta be the dumbest thing to happen at a fire range. I mean, those pins are there for a reason. I can't possibly imagine what your friend Frankie was thinking when he pulled the pin without actually expecting to inmediatelly throw it away. That's like basic.

Anyway good thing that he ain't getting grenades again, but I would keep an eye on him, he might find something else and make it more dangerous. :XD:

Some Covenants are getting pissed! :lol:
Hey, bravo work with the explosion thingy! The lasers there made it epic, lol :D
Btw, from which PS brush did you generate them? And what version of PS do you usually use? :confused: CS3?

Anyway, :iconfblikeplz:
Reply
:iconpanzerfire:
Panzerfire Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I use CS2. ;)

And I used a combination of "Special Effect Brushes" (SEB) and "Wet Media Brushes" (WMB). The SEBs in particular have been very useful recently to do Clouds, smoke, explosions, Random dirt or Wet effects on surfaces. You only have to figure out the right color combination and the Opacity and Flow levels (Which I keep quite low like between 5%-20% on both).

One particular brush I've been using among the SEBs is a brush called "Drippy Watercolor". I've also used that to replicate the Plasma lasers from Halo and I complemented it with a a low Opacity stroke from a Basic (Round) brush.


I still need to practice more but I feel like if using both SEBs and WMBs in combination I can pull pretty much any form of texture. I will keep on that track. :)

Hmm, good thing I use CS2 as well. Actually, I've used SEB several times for fogs, but I tried not to use really high opacity on them as well because what you will get is some weird stain over the pic :o Also it took some time to create a realistic explosion... Since I remember I have to go so detailed with smaller default brushes ^^; I haven't tried using WMB after all though :/

But thanks very much for the tips :) I should try it later... if I'm not that lazy :lol:
