the only thing on the rifle that looked a bit modern to me was the muzzle brake, because it looks like a .50cal muzzle brake. but you could totally age it by making it say brass and ornate

found this pic of a cup that looks kinda like what springs to mind

snipers won't have anthing shiny, that would easily tell their position.

Well after some more sketches and iterations that's the second design I came up with:


and the current full body sketch:
"Because the beauty of the human body is that it hasn't a single muscle which doesn't serve its purpose; that there's not a line wasted; that every detail of it fits one idea, the idea of a man and the life of a man."

might be the case, but they are darkened glass and not really sticking far out.

after reading up some bone proportion stuff with arm and leg lengths due to the lil conversation with Night in the Other thread I adjusted some pose proportions.
Think it's a ood enough base to proceed.



btw @Facet: the pose with the lowerd gun would maybe look more common, but I will definitely get problems with the height as in your pose, that's why I am sticking with what I have now - also considering that there isn't an as strong line which cuts the whole figure (which is another problem the horizontal gun would cause).

He appears dressed for very cold conditions.

I hope I haven't just missed it, but what is the thinking behind the bird face/beak theme?
It's certainly memorable. I'm just curious if there's something to it, besides style.

er, I feel like maybe you’d already decided but anyhow: flip the gun the opposite way = just as vertical, no? Not sure what you mean by height problem exactly (getting cropped by the textbox or the size of the gun to the floor? won't the extra height be a problem up top?), but in the sketch that rife looks enormous to me; suppressor like a mace. and it does seem a bit like he's hoisting a flag or something.

Telescopes don't seem out of place.

Telescopes aren't out of place and I'm well aware that they are not a recent technology.
Tactical Scopes of the same form as the one in the concept drawing however, uses highly refined lenses of which didn't come till later.
Anyway, its a non-issue if he isn't basing his universe of an Earth era as I had previously assumed.

Who’s arguing, man? was talkin’ bout utility, ie. the bayonet.

Maybe the place they live in smells very bad and they put in incense in the beak.

I kind of like the hooded look better, he felt more mysterious. Just my personal preference.

The way he's holding the rifle feels a little unnatural. Wouldn't you usually put your hand -under- what you're carrying? Not many people carry things by palming them from the top...
It's also a little unclear what exactly his pose is supposed to convey. Like someone else said, it kind of looks like he's getting ready to hoist a flag. If he's supposed to be stealthy, I don't think he'd hold his gun six feet over his head.
