Thanks so much, i truly appreciate your comments on this. They help me grow and become better as an artist.
It's true that i should diversify the uniforms a bit, but i intentionally didn't show their faces so i wouldn't have to give them character. And for this it made sense to make their uniforms identical, this isn't GI Joe
Boots huh? I'm still working on that, since there are so many kinds of boots military soldiers an operators wear, that i just went with a general look most of the time. I do use photo reference when i need to, but most of the time i can pull off winging it since i can draw most of the gear a typical trooper would have.
I have a tendency to really draw heavily, one which i have been trying to control and rectify. Or use different pin sizes.
I'm glad i managed to pull this off. There was so much that could have gone wrong while doing this.
This piece is truly fantastic! You've captured such motion and detail in one frame, and all of your hard work shows. I can't wait to see more of your drawings, especially these random blips of creativity. Fantastic job!
Also, could this be your inspiration? (3:09-3:27)
Thanks, this was really fun and challenging to do since i had to make the poses look believable, and the glass was actually done on as an afterthought. I'm just glad i managed to pull this off...
No, but they are pretty similar, the only difference is that the Ghosts fire their weapons after they land (possible since the baddies were stunned), whereas these operators are firing as they go down, which means they'd be coming in from a very high ceiling to be able to do so...
