I think a Troy Chassis M14 would've worked wonders for the whole futuristic theme, wouldn't you agree?

How did you paint the Multicam? Is it a Photobash? An overlaid texture pattern? Or did you paint out the whole Multicam?

I overlaid the pattern from different photos in a couple places, and sort of loosely painted in bits in other sections as needed. If you look closely you'll see areas that don't have the pattern, like around his left arm and parts where the wrinkles were more important to show. Leaving the pattern out of those parts allows the viewer to see the shape better (from wrinkles) and also the overall color you want them to see. The mind fills in the pattern.
If I were to make the pattern as dense and high contrast as it actually is in all places, it would be too 'busy' looking and some of the shapes and form would be lost. Hope that helps!  :)

He's wearing a lot of gear for a Recon Marine... the Bare Essentials vest doesn't look like it. But the artwork is good as always.

Just throwing my five cents in; any Special Operations group (MRE included) is able to choice what they wear. Even marines will tell you crye pattern works better than most other camo.

Thank you Alex! Hey! Question.....

Why Mulitcam for the uniform.. Being a Marine.. You know it would MarPat Color base. Marsac as of late been using Gen 3 Pattern Woodland.? Just wondering, STILL A great piece.

:iconalexjjessup:
AlexJJessup Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Just a preference, and I haven't seen much in other patterns that make it more effective than multicam. I know that a lot of units who have the option of what to use are using it, so it seemed a somewhat logical choice if the Marines were switching patterns. I'm sure it would depend largely on where Marines were active though.
Hope that answers your question! :)

They're still using a 1911 as a side arm? I thought the military replaced that. Great picture though. I wish I was this good.
