Niiiice scene, this and the forest patrol as some kind of sequence would be really cool .. but even w/o that they're both awesome. I like them more than the templar character sheets - obviously those are important for you to clarify things but these have so much more character.
That they did, the XM8 got canceled but HK still redesigned the m4 anyways to make the m416, A better gun overall. And the OICW was just to damn heavy. But they had futuristic looks to them, and that's what counts.
The Koreans have a variant of the OICW... the Daewoo K11 i think. It has a bolt action airburst grenade launcher instead of a semi-auto. Cuts the weight by a lot. If i'm not mistaken it's being tested and distributed right now.
The blood doesnt really look like blood..unless you mention that it is blood..I would suggest to go more bloody around the leaves that are near the tree as well..or a trail of blood that leads to the tree..idk..i think u were shy about painting blood..go CRAZY! I actually thought the red was part of the colors of the tree :/..didn't make me think blood, until now.
Dunno. I wanted him to have his gun at the ready to make it seem more immediate. If he had the weapon slung it would seem kind of dull, but with the gun out I was hoping to build a sense of immediacy. Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it!
Blood is tough to do, and the realistic stuff seems to have a boring look to it when you "break down" how to do it, but if you stray from the realism without executing it great stylistically it just looks wrong. The fun of being an artist right?
