Reference photo: screencap from the movie Saving Private Ryan

I was very fond of this photo. :}
Maybe it's because the scene is quite terrible: the guy gets shot in the eye by another sniper. I was like 'Nooooooo!'. Feel sorry for him. :(

I already have a drawing of a 'sniper' in my gallery, but that wasn't really a sniper, although the title was 'Russian Sniper' (i wasn't able to find a better one so far). Changed the title of that one, so people wouldn't think i am willing to start a serie of sniper drawings of different nations or something... I do have a life.

Coloured pencils + thin mechanicals

This one is a scan :D *pets and kisses her precious brand new scanner* but it looks more like a painting than a drawing! Ah, where did i go wrong this time? :|

Well done, that weird angle of the rifle couldnt have been easy!

I remember when SPR came out we thought that was Kevin Costner in the bell tower!

Oh sweet, It's that guy Jackson killed through the scope.

Interesting bit of trivia, on MythBusters, they said that was impossible, but they were using a modern sniper. With the old WWII's, that would have been possible becaus ethere were less scopes in the rifle. Possible, just not too damn likely!

Hollywood reality is to be forever doubted. :)

Anyway, why the eye? Any other part of the head or neck (as an easier target) would have been just as fatal.

Simple. the eye looked more epic. Holloywood is just for showmanship, you know
