Not really sure where this came from. Started with a drawing of an SAS-esque head, and then went from there.

I feel like if you keep progressing the way you do, you will end up with space marines wearing, or at least located somewhere withing a mech suit the size of 4 out houses. Good stuff.

Hehe, probably. That's part of the reason I structured my fictional universe the way I did, so that it would cover - throughout it's history - just about every damn thing I was a huge fan of, from the cold war to the far future where giant space battleships fight flying mechs or something.

Thanks!

Nice! I like the half shiny/half dull look on the MP5.

It's amazing what black & white on top of grey can do to make shiny metal. And what flat colors can do to make things dull! :3

But yeah, I've always liked mp5's metal bits to look fairly greased out and the synthetic furniture to be nice and matte-clean.

ah thats one SAS looking elite soldier =D I really like how you manage to use pure black shadows to your advantage to give the picture such a great focus and contrast, damn I need to learn that sometime.. but yea great to see you're back drawing lots of fun military themed drawings^^

Using monochrome is definitely a good exercise, it helps you define the image in simple light and dark, and you can just fill in color afterward. It's also not that hard, once you have a clean line drawing (just make sure you have a version of it where the lines are nice and bold black so they match XD). You don't even really have to be all that precise with your line drawing in certain areas as long as you know the silhouette and it's all in shadow anyway.

Since this image makes such a good example of all that, here's the original line drawing and the monochrome shading for comparison, and then both of them together:
