just focus on making the most accurate high poly version and normal map it to a low poly version. The next five years in videogaming is all improvement in dynamic particles, interactive dynamic particles etc. (look at udk4)
So really nothing to worry about for 3d artists.

Not a bad start on the rifle now, possibly the barrell is too smooth in some areas. Do a google search for M4 outer barrell and you should get some very decent reference shots to work from.

Exaggerated "just a bit." I've been out of the Marines for about 8 years, after only one enlistement, and was issued one of these from the first command I reported to.

Really? Was all of that necessary? Regardless, it's ironic considering my reply to the first quote.

I hope this claim is solely directed at what camo is issued where and to who.

@OP - The shape of the helmet is a bit off.

Nice work on the rifle. Keep it up.

As for the character, I suggest dropping to the lowest mesh level & block out the shape, go next level, add more details, until you its limit, then go next level, repeat. That's how I do for my character models anyway.

I have seen people go to high detail levels & sculpted from there, using clay build up brush, smooth & something like that, but that's only if you have a very strong foundation of the face shape.
