updated: added more details

I started this painting Black and white (I don't know why either). Been a while though.... I am not too sure about the helmet, now that I realize, it reminds me of the predator mixed in with a storm trooper. Go figure. This took about 2-3 hours on and off within a few days. TBH, I really don't know how long it took.

Heh, pretty interesting combo choice. Not sure about Storm Trooper, but I sure do see where you got predator from. Kinda reminds me of one of the Chig helmets from Space Above and Beyond. That and possibly crossed with Rios or Salem from Army of Two lol. Very nice.

Woa... that's just pure awesomeness. I love the gray. Makes the scene feel raw, gritty, cold.

Bit of a Halo feel with that helmet, I love your brushwork though as always. Nice work. Only crit is that the pose looks a little uncomfortable - his left arm would be in a rather bizarre position to hold his rifle in that manner! Other than that I just love it!

i think this is possibly your best work so far (besides the soldier with the SAW) and im serious when i say that. The texture-like painting on the soldiers body and the gun are stunning, and your outdid yourself on the head and the backround. I favorite this one with pride, and believe it or not, im seriously inspired by this piece, and i feel like doing a painting right now.

excellent job, plz keep it up!

Don't worry about the helmet, it really makes the picture complete.

I think that the picture would look better if it were in sepia tones or perhaps more sandy... you know, khaki, different yellow-browns etc. But maybe thats just me, I love deserts man... and when you add modern, or postmodern warfare, it gets even more awesome!

Keep it up, bro!

The helmet looks good. It looks very organic, like it's about to split open along those ridges to reveal a huge maw lined with teeth 0.o
