Did this bust of A Marine SAW gunner in Fallujah....was a commission piece, it is 1/10 scale (Approx. 3.75 inches) . The sculptor based it on a real pic of young Marine toting around a Lee Ermey doll in his ruck...(I am trying to find a good pic BTW) .....I tried to paint it up as a very tired and weary young Marine. What do you guys think?

No, he looks old.  Like Sam Fisher old.

It's great work, but he has way too many forehead and mouth wrinkles for a young guy.  Having been in the USMC, most of the "young Marines" look like highschool kids because they ARE around 18-21.

(I'm an artist so I'm a bit more truthful/brutal in my critiques than most.)

Those guys did go through the shit and I tried to impart that in my paint. I am trying to convince the sculptor to do this as a full piece.....it would be awesome to paint also.
