View Full Version : Future Marine Scout

Right now I'm still only working with the base sketch. Any ideas/critique or comments are very welcome! One thing I'd like to know is if the anatomy is correct and stuff like that, I don't want a failed project later on because of a bad sketch... (

The head seems to be a little small compared to the arms, but maybe thats what you were going for. Overall, good.

There are some problems with anatomy and I think itīs better if you look up reference and correct accordingly. Also look at some pictures of rifles and other weapons to make his look more convincing.

Good places for reference: (
Books by Andrew Loomis, George Bridgman, Burne Hogarth

There are also a lot of problems with proportion. As already pointed out the head is a bit too small and the legs are very large. His right thumb is way too large and his upper arms are very large in comparison to the rest of the body.

Also, when designing armor, think about if itīs praticall. Right now it looks like the shoulder pads would hinder him and make him more immobile.
The pose is kind of stiff and boring, maybe making him stand with his legs a bit more spred apart will make it more interesting.

Hope this helps and keep working on it!
