Multicam Rifleman by MarcWasHere Multicam Rifleman by MarcWasHere
Multicam...the pattern for today's fashion conscious operator. I still really like the original Crye styled BDUs with the integrated pads, since first time i saw it on GRAW.

Would you be interested in helping me create a logo for a veterans assistance non profit organization using something very similar to this drawing?  Contact me!  Thanks...

Real important question. Do you know of any websites, or video tutorials on youtube that'll help teach how to draw tactically correct figures like this in comic book style? I'm just already assuming a lot of the channels would only teach how to draw them in non-tactical/unrealistic Rambo stance type stuff when portraying military-esque stuff in their art work.
MarcWasHere Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2013
 Hey man, i'll try to answer your question as best as I can, and what I think is more important: getting the figure anatomically correct. Tactically correct is simply a matter of doing research on your part on what you would like your character to be kitted out in, weapons, helmet, vest, etc. I get annoyed when I see extremely talented artists, get lazy when it comes to drawing a rifle and butcher in some weird M-16/ak-47 hybrid-frankenstein gun as with the internet today, drawing any particular weapon is not an issue with the TONS of reference material out there.

So my advice would be firstly, to get your character anatomically correct. Second, go search up loads of visual references of today's combat troops: Snipers, commando units, riflemen, support gunners, grenadiers, etc. Observe what the common poses are, hand positions, how the weapons are held at rest/fire/ready etc, what kind of gear can be mixed and matched (A ghillie suit and a FAST helmet clearly wouldnt!).

Hope this helps with your question, but feel free to ask if you have any others. :) Cheers.

The thing I hate most is that I can only find instructional videos on how to draw people in that Rambo type pose as opposed to alert-to-the-dirt or when they teach how to draw someone firing from the hip.

Hey dude… take some photos of a buddy in the correct tactical positions...then you can have them exactly the way you want… You can also video him/her doing individual movement and then pause the video or take stills to use as models for action scenes… i.e. buddy rushing or throwing a grenade.  Do some with PT gear on and some with full gear (or close to it) to see how the fabric folds… cheers

Cool image.

However, it would have more impact to it without the added cartoon caption of "Multicam".

I recommend removing the caption (it distracts from the image) and let the details within the speak for itself. :nod:

It works better.

Though I do like the ACU more, I still have to say Multicam still looks awesome!! :D I really like the Crye BDUs with the built -in pads too and that Calico Jack patch on his vest :D

I really dig Multicam over ACU anyday. ACU (digital pixelated cammo pattern) really stick out like a sore thumb on undergrowth vegetation & rocky terrain variety of today theater of war. Beside it's really nice to look at, compare to dull greyish ACU. Interestingly i first saw Crye product in Rainbow Six Future Warrior design sheet years ago, it's like a precursor of what is today military standard.
Nice military artwork BTW.

Awesome, did u use photoshop to do this
eagleoftheninth Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Fantaaaastic. I can only wish my digital art skills are anywhere close to this. What model is the helmet though?
MarcWasHere Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2011
Not quite sure who manufactures them, but as far as I know, its simply called the ACH - Advanced Combat Helmet, with accessory rail connectors.
modfare Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2011
the helmet is called the fast bump helmet
eagleoftheninth Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks for clearing it up! I've never actually seen it without the camouflage cover.

Jacket or TRU Shirt

I like Multicam.
pimphand Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
LOL...didn't see that...thanks...that is similar to how I do it. I usually use a sample and the paste into.
pimphand Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I really can't get over how detailed this is. I meant to ask last time I commented but is this photo reffed? Also is the Multicam painted or did you sample some actual Multicam? Either way this really is sicck as all hell.
MarcWasHere Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2010
Hey man, i explained the rough process of using a texture in photoshop above to another person, u can check it out. Its useful for camo or patterns, since painting it by hand is impractical. Glad you liked it, cheers! :D
pimphand Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Wow that is some seriously nice kit. Great job.
Arkideit Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2010
Is it heavy anti-splinter pants? O_o =D
aFletcherKinnear Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
MAN that's freakin awesome! I like the attention to detail and the fact that you draw real-life equipment and weapons. M14-EBR and M9 holster look so badass! What is your process though? Do you get a picture of multicam and use a layer on top of it to draw the outline, and go in with burn/dodge tools to adjust the shading? That's what I'm guessing, but anyway Awesome work!
