I've been wanting to paint something like this in a while. I know it might seem as if these warriors would die by a heat stroke! Think about it for a sec, have some thoughts about the future. What if these uniforms have some sort of cooling system running underneath? I mean technology is getting smaller by the years, I've read about a new lcd tv thats about 2-3 centimeters thick. I am pretty sure our soldiers in the future will be able to do things like no other :)

Might do a in-helmet hud painting sometime, should be fun with all of this idea that's flowing in my head.

ps cs3. cintiq.

Gotta say I love your work. Feels very real, and that counts for one hell of a lot. Much kudos.

Your "climare control" mechanism is actualy in the works. During my first Iraq tour I saw a unit that was fielding 1,200 modular "A/C packs." It was in a case that slung to the side with a hose that ran up behind your body armor. The thing weighed like 15 pounds, and for that very reason; Soldiers didn't wear it. Why carry that when you can carry more ammo right? The army also has a prototype helmet apart of the Solider 2020 program that in theory will be ballistic, have built in NVG's or thermals, climate control, NBC detection capabilities, Comms, Blue force tracker like GPS, and up to date real time video feed back so that a 6 element can see every part of the battlefield. Shoot, move, communicate. I see it taking a little longer them 10 years but I would LOVE to be proved wrong on this bit of technology.

WHOA!!! Now that is nice, it's almost like a pre-Halo bunch of Spartans invaded Iraq along with the Marines, but if the armed forces does look into this sort of hope they do lol.
