Just a small update, but a nice spot of green in this drab season nevertheless.
This was done on request, otherwise I wouldn't have made him so extremely generic (and unfortunately resembling the TF2 Soldier, who is something of a wonderful archetype).
I noticed how I've never drawn soldiers, tanks, weapons, brown epic post-apocalyptic cyborg warrior guys with big shooty guns and red glowing eyes and gas masks... So when someone asked me to "draw a soldier", I honestly had to look up some of the finer details.
The inspiration for his uniform is actually a quite old picture from pre-WWI.
Hope you like him!
