SniperMedia: Photoshop 7 and a Wacom Graphire graphics tablet
This is a new version of an image I did back in 2001. Virtually the only thing that remains is her basic pose. I've corrected her anatomy, kited her out with suitable equipment including a more realistic rifle and given her extra 'attitude'. Remember kids, 'Smoking kills!' Of course getting shot in the head with a high calibre bullet won't do you much good either!
After seeing some very impressive low-poly character models on the CGTalk forums I got the urge to do one myself. I've decided that the sniper would make a good subject so I'll be working away on a low-poly model of her for the foreseeable future. You can follow its development in this CGTalk thread.
