Daily Deviation

Ok, it looks like I've rated this piece very highly, but to some extent that's because it's pretty technically superb, with the huge level of background detail, seemingly holographic roadsigns, the very clear direction of the primary light on the sniper, the smoke wisp from the firearm's muzzle brake, the very natural way that the chain link fencing has been broken...

There is one glaring flaw with it though. No-one could fire a weapon with that sort of barrel length relative to themself accurately unless it was supported by both a barrel support along most of the barrel length to prevent barrel droop and a bipod or tripod mounting to prevent muzzle shake. References that show what I mean include the first 15 minutes or so "The Expendibles 2", various episodes of Mythbusters (search YouTube for Mythbusters, Kari, and sniper rifle), and the first couple of episodes series 1 of the Anime "Black Lagoon".

As ever, if you wish to discuss this further, I'm open to helpful comments.

Awesome! :D

Can I use it for a game, granting you credits, and an annual percentage as it turns commercial?


Please consider my offer :)

Pretty darned epic, generally speaking. Also, the cleanness and the detail combine with the mist and the glowy-ness to create a really nice atmosphere with a great sense of moment.

Wrong, he just said it wasn't a sniper rifler.

Oh. I see.

Wait. You mean rifler of rifle ?

Because you can have a sniper rifle without being a sniper or a sniper rifler...

I didn't realize the spelling matter, or you are just using that as an excuse because you are wrong. And it's dear, not dear. Shut up.

I wasn't trying to prove that it was a sniper rifle. I was just confused by the word 'rifler'. No need to be mean like this.

:icontoothless6reach:
Toothless6reach Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013  Student General Artist
I did. You got a point.

but haven't u herd of dis strange way dat people use to spell sum words sometime ?

Anyways. I sometimes make faults in English, but I'm not the one who makes the most mistakes in just one sentence on the Web. If you are on a quest to correct people's bad spelling methods, good luck then...

Awesome! I really love the background, the dark structures in contrast to the bright lights is just beautiful, the very essence of cyberpunk! Your rifle woman looks beautiful too, perhaps she could even give Motoko Kusanagi a run for her money!

Amazing. Any inspiration from Mass Effect? The "Shepard" part, perhaps? Or am I just obsessed myself? :iconexcitedplz:

Actually this piece had nothing to do with mass effect, but when I started making road signs I started thinking of some famous fictional characters that might be cool enough to have some facilities or roads named in theie honor.. who knows why - Shepard appeard the first in the list in that moment =p
