Note: Given the harsh criticism this picture is getting I feel like this project is a very good candidate for an early re-make. So if you want to write down whatever you feel is wrong with the picture, please do so. Constructive criticism is welcome.
For those that don't know, the JGSDF stands for Japanese Ground Self-Defence Force which are the modern military of Japan (While at the same time hilariously not considered a military due to constitutional technicalities).
I wanted to do this for a while 'though originally I wanted to use Kaname Chidori from FMP but then I decided to go with one of my OCs Kahoru Kawasaki (Note that the name might change in the future).
The rifle is the JGSDF standra issue Howa Type 89, and it's a pretty well drawn one.
's request, I made a bad screw up with the body-head relation and... well... the original lineart at first glance looks ok but when start applying perspective to it, you realize that it look more like a chibby drawing
So again I tweaked the lineart with perspective and scaling two times. One for overall the body and head and then again exclusively for the head as to make it look more appropiate to the angle of sight.
I'm sorta happy with this project but I realize that I still need a lot of practice to make my pin ups look anywhere as good as those of the best artists.
Oh.... And yeah, I said I would be working on that remake of May Liberty smile. The problem is that the project is going to have some 50 aircrafts (More or less) and vectoring each one of them is going to be such a drag. And I already noted that I made a small mistake in the perspective of the aircraft screenshots I'm vectoring. A very good eye will notice but again I might be able to do slight corrections on the final steps as to hide/camouflage any mistakes I'll do during the project. I'll be two weeks with it AT LEAST!
So I might as well dedicate some time with the smaller projects (Unfortunately this is the only one that can be considered small).
Anyway I hope you like this.
See'ya in the Battlefield!
