Outstanding work!

The only problem I can see is his weapon (assuming this is a US Marine, anyways). Marines are issued the M16A4, although some units still have a few A2s in their armories. He's holding an A3 (with no front sight post), Marines have never used the A3. Also, he has an Aimpoint style sight, Marines only use either iron sights or the ACOG (or RCO, whatever you want to call it).

Still, impeccable work!

MarcWasHere Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2008
I'm assuming its left open after being fired...unless Marines are drilled to close it after each set of shots...?
Freezerboi Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm just giving you crap dude, we are trained to close it becasue it's suposed to keep dust out, but yea you did a really good job on that. Kudos and Semper FI
Huntsman97 Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2008
Damn! I must be gettin' old, a M4 & 4s what the hell are those? I Qual'd back in'91 with the standard issue M16A2 and shot a dissmal 'Marksman' with the 'Tonka toy' in Bootcamp! But, once this 'Desert Rat' figured it out :) I could put 9 out of 10 rounds in a B-Mod target at 500 meters, and have the 4 'Expert' badges. Until about a year ago I had never fired a weapon using the 'Red Dot Scope' but friend had a CAR15 that he had customized himself but was trying to 'Sight in' I Zero'd it at 200 yards and let him 'sight in' the Red Dot, I hate scopes, but once the 'Dot' was on, it was easy shootin'

You just earned my respect as an artist and fellow combatant.
Thank you for putting something like this up; it
makes me smile! :D
The buttstock, PEQ2, and rail system make this an awesome picture. Good job!! One thing's missing, though: where the fuck is the front side post? :omfg:

wow!!! reaspect!!!!
cheeseforthesoul Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2006
Oh, and also...

Hardly ever see red dot or holo sights. Mostly the ACOG now.

But it's still an awesome pic.
cheeseforthesoul Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2006
Haha, there's even a buttstock number. Awesome.

A note in lieu of the conversation below...

Marines still pack m16a4s. The only people who get m4s are either officers, plt sgts, Recon, scout/snipers, sometimes just random Marines who lucked out I guess. POGs usually have the old a2s, and there's a few commands in the Corps that still do, but by large it's the a4 being used. It's the Army that is going totally to the M4.
ironjewgod Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2008
Yeah, I'm an Amtracker and I got an M-4. We got a few A-4s for the kids with 203s. I prefer the A-4. Just cause i grew up with it I guess.

Do you use any graphic tablets (Wacom, the works), or is it all freehand in PS?
deathprince Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2006
I second the comments given by 'mouth'.
mouth Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm impressed, but curioius.

Most marines use the M4 as opposed to the M16 now a days but you still incorporate the M68(scope), PEQ2 (Infrared Laser pointer on the farthest most par of the barrell), the Surefure light with the pressure sensor, the unit designated buttstock number (34), and the single mag pouch attached to the end of the buttstock on the M16. Im just wondering if youre referancing off a picture, or have been in the service before?

Im impressed with this piece and cant wait to see the final rendition!! +fav
MarcWasHere Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2006
Yo Spec! i am serving my national service now, but we're using SAR-21s. As per the uh, info tt u've mentioned, haha, i noe most frontline troops in th marines r using th m4...probly th support dudes still haf th 16s left. dunno, i simply drew th 16, cos the stock is easier to draw..altho i try to keep it as true to life as possible. ;p But i appreciate tt sumone actually notices all th detail i put into these stuff! the 3 most common attachments being th trijicon scope, peq n tac lite...:]
mouth Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well i forgot to mention the flip up rear sight aperature... not a fan of it really but it does work and is convieniant as a last resort i guess you could say if your triji went down. ;) but yes i noticed all your detail. i took a look at it later in my fav gallery and realized that had you not used the 16 the emplacement of the units buttstock number wouldnt have ever been in the pic and it does add its own little piece to the overall picture. again, great job :) and nice to meet a fellow soldier!
MarcWasHere Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2006
Haha...:] The Triji is a red dot scope right? always liked those...specially the eotech reflex. What unit are u with dude?
mouth Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes the Triji is a red dot scope. runs off batteries and istn as reliable as one would hope ( at least not in my opinion).

Im with Bravo Troop, 8-10 Cavalry Squadron, 4th Brigade, 4th I.D

I just wonder.
Is it made from a sketch?
Or do you like, draw it off a picture?
Just curious.
