Info in image! Oh, posting more info on the rifle separately. It's basically an M82, I mostly just changed the aesthetics of it a bit. Scope is TrackingPoint, if you don't know what that is, check it out. Super cool, and I suspect the military will be using them soon for a number of reasons.

Really awesome. Are the legs a photo btw? I would just LOVE a step-by-step or a short tutorial made by you. Maybe a lot to ask for, but you know ... Just if you ever get the time! :)

For the pose, yes. I paint over the photo to put the camo pattern, lighting, other equipment etc on there. Most of us don't want to hassle with getting poses right from memory; it's a lot easier to start with a photo and work off it from there!
I may make a tutorial down the road, I'll be sure to advertise it here if I do! :)
Glad you like my work!

Ah, interesting process. Do you use your own photos or do you take the photos from some reference website?

This image inspires me each time I think of a stationary sniper. Your work Alex is legendary.

By adaptive camo you or like another camo that would adapt to environments ?

No, Adaptive Camo is a fictional name I was using for a semi-cloaking clothing.

Cool image but as pointed out The Trigger finger. I would also point to weight vs posture. Unless he's wearing a Powered Exoskeleton He is not going to hold that pose for long.  That rifle is over 30 pounds unloaded.

"I suspect the military will be using them soon for a number of reasons."
US Army is testing it out as we speak on there XM2010 Sniper Rifle.

This is unbelievable. Your job is absolutely perfect. I love the way you place the annotations. And as you color and texturized, different materials.
