I wanted to do more quick normal human character designs. I decided to do a 'space marine' (as I've never done one) but instead of a snarling hulking badass, more of a soldier from WW2, a young kid that maybe tricked the draft, and is now realizing he may have made the wrong decision.

Tech wise, I decided to try to figure out how gear would change for a Sniper in the future. I gave him this massive gyroscopic stabilizing sleeve for his holding hand. And his legs are mounted with a sort of muscle enhancement/ shock absorbing system. They are working on that technology right now, so I just sexied it up a little. I think it'd be cool if they still wore ghillie suits in the future though!

Excellent work on his armor, and his face is perfect: uncertain, a bit shell-shocked, almost looks like he's about to cry. Subtle lighting!

This dude looks as though he's haunted by all his past headshots! Awesome character...

nice concept. not so sure a sniper would wear so much armor though.

Oh, look at these details on the suit !
The concept looks much of a soldier or someone who's not stealthy . Maybe youre right about ghillie suits or anything refers to camo . He's a sniper as everyone already knows .

In the future, everyone gets high-tech equipment that looks like power armour.

It's cool, but the armor looks rather heavy for a sniper. Perhaps this is just me, I mean it's still cool and all this is merely nit picking, but my father was a sniper in Vietnam and more than anything they needed to be able to get around quickly and silently. This armor seems more suited to a front lines fighter. That said, war has changed a great deal. Either way, cool painting dude.

Read through the comments. I've already addressed that. He takes out planes with a massive rifle. (made up future) Appreciate your pop's expertise tho.

Hard Core. So less of a stealth sniper, more of an anti-vehicle. Intriguing.

I can just feel the emotion coming from the young man, imagining what must be going through his mind as he's encased in all that armor. I like the concept that you've put someone of his stature in a metallic combat suit, instead of say, someone who looks like they could plow through a brick wall. Very nice!
