US Marine by Madspin US Marine by Madspin
This is my first Deviation, so be nice! ;p

I used a reference image to make the line art - traced it on my Wacom board so I feel a bit like a cheater, but for me it was just important to get started on doing some art and I hope the effort I put into this makes it qulify in that category :)

I've made two versions of this picture - 1 with harder black outline and one with more dim outline. Maybe when I get better I'll try and color/shade the folds in the clothes, but thats no easy task so this will do for now.

criticque is welcome - I WANT and NEED to get better!

Hey welcome to DA, Awsome picture, really well done very detailed as well good use of refrense, its hard to find army pics nowadays sinced most of them are censorship but still very accurate really dose disevered a fav. just a cruiosity whys the US badge facing <---that way on the shoulder?

However your gun espcially is very detailed, let me guess M4 RIS (rail interface system) with a forward grip and a M4 CQB Sight. :P

Anyways keep up the good work and welcome to da :P

Thanks for the welcome and comments - and nice spotted about the mirrored flag badge. I didn't think the photo reference would be mirrored so the flag is of course wrong and something I oughta fix!

And my guess is that you are dead on when it comes to the guess of what type of rifle it is :)
