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:

;) 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).

Sorry but no. :no:

I have not posted a full description of Kahoru and much of her personality remains a Work In Progress. She's just not ready to be shared. ;P

You'll have to use a character of your own.

Awsome action shot

"Kawasaki, this is Overlord. We've got confirmation of fifty plus enemy foot mobiles moving in on your position, over."

"We have an evac copter inbound, however the evac has only enough fuel for a quick pick up. You have 30 seconds to get your ass to the LZ, MOVE!"

Sorry, just had to do that... too much MW2. :)

Poor Girl, being subject to Overlord's borderline crazy orders. =P



Which sort of makes me think, that no female main cast has ever been featured in a Call of Duty game. Right?

Anyway I'm glad you like it.

Yeah, I think you're right.

Hmm, come to think of it.. not even any of the minor characters or any AL are female.. other than civilians.
And why not I wonder, girls can kick ass in a war too.

En este puse mis "brushes" en practica para crear el efecto "Flecktarn" del camuflage. :)

No hay muchos dibujos de soldados donde se le pone detalle a los camuflages asi que hago el esfuerzo extra para replicarlos. :)

Gracias por el :+fav: :D

Reply

Panzerfire Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
With a PhotoShop brush I made myself. It makes the work of doing Flecktarn so much easy and the best part is... it's pretty much 100% accurate. :) Aftrer all I made those brushes with th help of photos of actual Flecktarn camouflage. If you want such brushes for your PhotoShop you can download them following the "Download" link provided here: [link]

The grenade launcher attachement although possible with some modifications, is not actually in use with the JGSDF. Rifle grenades on the other hand are standar.

This is just my own take on fiction ;)
