Expeditionary Force Marine by dfacto Expeditionary Force Marine by dfacto
From the halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tannhauser Gate
We will fight you're planet's battles
And try not to be too late

This is actually a really old sketch from around 7 years ago that I saw while digging through my old papers and decided to finish. There wasn't much to show as a "before" shot, but it changed quite drastically from the original, and for the better. Nice to see the improvements right on the page side by side as you polish. :)

I'd hate to be on the other side, having these guys coming after you would not be cool.

Very interesting work, what weapon are they he holding? It seems to have a drum magazine and could possible be some sort of LMG due to the mag and the lack any enhanced sights. For some reason to me they look injured leaning on the gun as a crutch, but the gun is not touching the ground, Maybe it is just the placement of the arm. The backpack is a really cool add on to the character it adds needed color and a sense of reality. The only thing that seems odd about it is the 1-2-3 pouches on their chest. The placement is fine, I just don't think they need the added color, I'm not entirely sure though. Anyway all of the armor is very well done and articulate detail.

He's in a jog, which is why there's a forward lean. And you're absolutely right about the pouches, but I only realized they looked bad colored when I'd already put pen to paper. Oops! I'll make better choices next time (hopefully).
The weapon is just some random nonsense, somewhat inspired by the m60 and mg42.

Thanks for the comments, always love to hear opinions. :)
