The Itto Rikui by Panzerfire The Itto Rikui by Panzerfire
Yay! Yet another deviation finished! Featuring again a soldier of the Rikujō Jieitai (JGSDF).
This time is an updated version of my OC Kahoru Kawasaki (Name can still be changed 'though). No more red-haired and now she has a more natural black hair as its more typical for Japanese women.
She's a Itto Rikui (Captain) in the JGSDF.

Here she can be seen in action (Whetter it's just practice or an actual combat can be debated :ninja: ) holding a slighty modified Howa Type 89 Assault Rifle. This rifle can have a M203 Grenade Launcher attached to it (Although it's not very frequent). Also complementing the weapon there is a EOTech sight device.
It's not the common Type 89 you'll see a JGSDF soldier holding but such variant is possible :)

I'm quite happy with this work although there are parts about the lineart that I think I should start improving soon. I failed to draw a background and therefore I had to improvise one using solely PhotoShop brushes.
Talking about brushes I have to give credits for the following brushes.
First to myself... why? Because this is the first work in which I used my own made Flecktarn brushes :D They suit in like a glove :love: To get my Flecktarn brushes follow this [link]
:iconredheadstock: provided grunge, sand, distressed, vegetation and cloud brushes.
I also used Ro_Stock grunge scratches brushes to add some more realism to the rifle.

Next on my list of stuff to do is another JGSDF related project. Remember the Type 10 drawing? Well that's next.
This one might take a little longer than the last couple of projects due that this drawing will be complemented with several helicopter vector arts. I'm also gonna try some new effects which I hope will make of that project an awesome picture :)
And then.... big pause of incoming projects. I think I'll need a lot of time to come up with a mecha drawing T_T It's frustrating. So it'll take me a while to come up with a new set of lineart of my own projects and your requests.

Well I hope you like this. Before I start working on the next project, I'll reply to all your previously posted comments I let stockpiling on my message center =P

See'ya in the Battlefield! :salute:

I say! You're a very good artist! She looks so cool! Have you actually considered doing another comic?

You mean another pic of her?

Because to this day I haven't really made any proper comics. That's more for the future.

Schade. I really liked your comic about Britian invading Argentina.

;) Well I'm glad you do.

I do have quite a lot of comic ideas that I want to work on. And I'm talking about true full length comics and not simple two page comic strips.

I started working on the script of one of those comics around December but I only managed to get some pages done for a first chapter. I should try to pick that on so that I can get on my comic projects at once. I still need to do further character development and a bit more of research on the US Marine Corps since that projects features them (Although eventually I will be including a more international cast including the character featured here).
