Grizzled Vet by MarcWasHere Grizzled Vet by MarcWasHere
Another trooper...a grizzled looking old vet. Gonna be churning out a a few of these military-esque character sketches for abit for a personal project with a friend.

And since someone suggested UCP-D the last time around...altho these are NOT supposed to be american troops despite the mainly american-esque gear, hence the lack of unit insignia or national flags. Gonna try more futuristic styled gear in the next batch if i can...XD

I gave such a vanilla comment last time and I apologize for that. This is very nicely rendered man. the IOTV is nicely rendered and has all those little details are there. Is that a PCU top? If so what color did you use to paint the alpha green? Plus the FN P-90 looks tits with the EO-TECH 552.

UCP-D? You mean that ACU that looks as if they had throwed some shit at it? :XD:

I've heard that it was originally developed for the Afghan terrain which immo was a waste of money... they should have just picked up the Marines MARPAT instead. :roll:

This drawing is pretty good. Love the camo and shading. The guy truly looks like a badass veteran. ;)

P90 was a good choice.

That little FN P90 isn't too heavy at all. But anybody who's ever shot one will tell you that you definitely want the Eotech on top or an Aimpoint! The tiny red dot that it comes with is no comparison to purpose built sights.
I got to shoot one (suppressed!) at a demo shoot. The little guy is almost boring on full auto - no muzzle rise, no sound except the clacking of the bolt and easy to keep on target. Almost boring - except it's like holding a Ferrari in your hands... ;)
I did NOT like the awkward magazine change, though. Good lap gun for VIP details.

Great placement of the smiley - is it over optimistic at his age? :D

Interesting. Although im hoping someone will shoot the TDI Kriss one day and let me know how it works...im curious as to how much muzzle climb and kick difference there really is with a conventional bolt system.

I've read reports on the Kriss - but sadly have never gotten to even see a sample.
Got to shoot a Russian RPD, though - even got a chance for my wife to shoot it! She wanted to buy one - isn't she adorable? :D

What is your opinion on the UCP-D? I personally think it's a slight improvement over the standard UCP only due to the inclusion of the Coyote Brown/Dark Earth. (the brown on the USMC Marpat.)
Reply
:iconmarcwashere:
MarcWasHere Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2010
No real opinion. Works better in certain terrain like all various camos that have been produced so far. Trying to produce a 'universal' pattern is like trying to make a multiflavored food with everything in it.

ACU had its good points, just not for the wide spectrum of environments for which it was used in. Pick the right camo for the right terrain I think is still the best way to go about it.

:iconhoggmieser:
hoggmieser Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2010
That's what I've always said. But what I've seen is that the ACU works well on American soil or urban areas with large amounts of concrete...or a rock quarry. And another thing is I've personally tested it against first and second generation NVGs as well as the military issue AN/PVS-22; and it does disperse light given off by the uniform quite a bit better than a normal BDU.
