My mind finished the title "This is my rifle..." as "This is my gun. this's for shootin' this's for fun..."

Beautiful...is...The only word I have to describe. His pose and the light make this a perfect cover from a videogame.
I think, is my opinion, that guy is one of Carmine's Brother for Gears of War

I'd like to know more about that guy. the best part about little drawings about this is that there is always a story behind everything, even if it isn't there yet.
Fricking awesome job.

Lovely. I don't see very much post-nuclear artwork that I adore. I will have to memorize the Rifleman's Creed for my book. Thank you for a bit of inspiration :)

Interesting use of color-contrast - it's hard not to focus on the soldier, and had to consciously try to pull myself away from his glaring visor lenses.

Wouldn't it be sort of... tactically inadvisable to make a weapon with a lot of glowing elements on it? One could imagine that being a sort of dead give-away...

"This is my rifle... And its pointing strait at my head."

Come on, if you know the creed you have to know the safety rules.

1: Treat every weapon as if it were loaded.

2: Never point a weapon at anything you do not intend to shoot.

3: Keep your weapon on safe until you are ready to fire.

4: Keep your finger straight and off the trigger until you intend to fire.

Well, until you finished the sentence I was going to comment with:

*grabs crotch* "..and this is my gun, one is for shooting, the other for fun."


Or something of that nature.

I have penis envy. -_-

Very wicked; it's like those 80s concept art pieces I remember popping up when I was a teeny kid.
The ones we see today don't look much like the painstaking work of the time.
So much atmosphere.

Instead of "stick to lines, we'll CG the concepts, make 'em shiny" :P

I like it.
