Unnamed Solider by ruv Unnamed Solider by ruv
I'm watching too much Gulf War II on CNN, thought I'd do something more creative with my time..

This photoshop image manipulation is of U.S. Marine Cpl. Brian Shumylo of Dyer, Ind..
--------------
ADDS TRANSLATION OF ARABIC WORD -- U.S. Marine Cpl. Brian Shumylo of Dyer, Ind., shields his face from blowing sand around the landing pad at an air base in Kuwait after arriving by helicopter from a ship Tuesday, March, 18, 2003. Shumylo is in a unit that helps load heavy-lifting helicopters. The arabic word on his facemask translates to Shymylo.

Some plastic wrap is definitely in effect but I don't believe it's a rip. If you look at the detail in the eyes it dismisses any thought that this wasn't painted. Anyhow, nice piece, the photo was a wicked one to base the work off of.

His name is U.S. Marine Cpl. Brian Shumylo of Dyer, Ind.

This is an illustration based on an image you saw on tv? It looks a whole lot like an image I've seen on a of couple news web sites with a Photoshop "plasticwrap" filtered applied to it.

Here's a link to the photo...

I'm not saying it's a rip because I've seen a lot of photorealistic illustrations on DA. Perhaps you could elaborate a little more on what you did here?
