Sniper 2038


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!

Great piece of work, Sir. New to your work (and site), but feel like a kid in a sweet shop.

Regarding the ghillie suit - thought it would be funky to have a semi-organic ghillie suit that links to the wearer via a neural port of some description, and once on reacts to the surroundings like an octopus does, changing shape and colour in a matter of seconds.

One question, if you don't mind - graphic tablet recommendations for beginner/entry level? My cheap 'n' cheerful tablet died coming out of hibernation. Many thanks.
