FEMALE STOCK SOLDIER 06 - AIMING

Many of you asked me to to do a female version of my original soldier stock series.

Well, here you go. 
Great for present time and scifi settings - or simply for pose reference (the poses shown here are correct and make sense, I assure you).

Please take a look and at the stock rules (and follow them, too).

 

As always, respect the model in the comments and in your work. ;)

The classic stock soldier series:

Why is her finger not on the trigger?  If it's a real gun, I can understand that safety gesture.

Freeport Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014  Professional General Artist
No, it is not, but we were treating it like one, since this is meant to be a realistic pose and not ahing your finger on the trigger until you actualyy fire your gun is something, every pro does. ;)

Okay.  I was assuming people who use this as a refference would put the character in a real warzone.
Instead of putting them in a 'photo shoot' scene.  Anyway!

GOOD JOB. 

Ah i did not know that.  Really?  Pros dont leave their finger on the trigger?  wowwwww

It is something many, many people get wrong, even in big budget movie or TV shows, people run around with their fingers on the trigger. Makes me furious. Even in a warzone, a soldier would never put the finger on a trigger until seconds before the shot. Since this is an alert pose (securing a hallway or a street corner) I decided to leave the finger off the trigger. ;)

Sadly, I know some soldiers who are. But you are right, a more grim face would have been a bit more fitting. Ah well, nothing's perfect. ;)

Yes, it is called aiming over the barrel (or rough aiming, I think, I am not quite sure about the English terms here), it is used to secure potentially hot areas without loosing depth perception or periphal vision. It is quite common, actually.

I love this. Very uncommon to see a female fighter who's actually armed and armoured in proper correlation with the contextual situations she's going to be facing. We need more of this, to be honest. If I have to grin and bear it through another "battle-bra" I'm going to scream.

Great outfit, great model, and despite the comments below mine, I like the pose. It doesn't have to be totally dynamic and action-y to be effective. In fact it's often the more demure poses that get the best results, as the motion and off-balance of being in action whilst taking a shot can not only be detrimental to your aim, but also dangerous to you as well. Some people have been playing too many videogames, methinks.

So good job, great shot and I look forward to more ;)

I could not agree with you more. And while I appreciate all constructive criticism - I know my work is not perfect - I still find it a bit curious that most of the negative comments - still very few though - largely come from people with empty portfolios or sites with... let us say, pretty basic artwork. I know what I have to think of those. Most commentes here, I find very helpful though and I enjoy discussing my work. ;)

:iconviviblackmyst:
ViviBlackmyst Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Honestly, and I'm not trying to open a can of worms here this is just conjecture, I think the majority of unwarranted criticism is simply because the model is female. Most wouldn't even bat an eye at this if it was male, and there may likely be more compliments. 
That being said, I love what you're doing. We need more of this around, a lot more. This girl here looks like she'd be more likely to survive on a battlefield than a lot of the characters I see who are actually /in/ video games and movies. So do us all a favour; brave the inevitable criticism and keep this stuff coming! ;)
Meanwhile battle-bras everywhere get a million "omg this is awesooommee!!1!1"s.

I will. And what I think very cool, of the hundreds of comments I received here, there was many praise for the model and zero sexist comments. I think this is ?quite remarkable. Also, most critique I got here was very constructional. ;)

Yeah, it seemed great on paper and the first field tests were very promising, but ultimately it was just too expensive and too complicated to maintain (two things most HK weapons are). So what gun did theUS army finally choose? The HK415? The FN SCAR? Ilost track

The military by in large just went back to the m4. SCAR got adopted for special forces
