I think this is an amazing representation of the scout-sniper for being a 20-minute speed-paint. Especially when it comes to the victim's or bystanders point-of-view. Being detail accurate, the deviants can see that the sniper is somewhere in Europe, but shows no firm representation of where he is or where he's from. Though, I suspect some sort of special forces from the U.K., U.S. or Russian Alpha Groups from the Accuracy International L115's I'm familiar with. Maybe even groups from Ukraine or Poland.

To the target this image would present him with the ultimate fear: he can run, but he will die tired. And he would know he couldn't stand and fight an enemy which he cannot see. The scout-sniper would never purposely let his enemy see him without a good reason.

And that part is why this is the perfect representation of the focus on the sniper in this piece. Because when you encounter the one predator in the whole world who has virtually no enemies to oppose him, the rest of the world just falls away for you. There is no path or waterway, no trees or brush around you... That all just melts away. There's just that scout-sniper walking your way, or walking by for a moment; waiting for you to turn or blink, because once you do it's already all over. You lost him, and he'll loose himself of you... with one .338 Lapua Magnum round to the head.

Great work here, *nitro-killer. One bad-ass piece you've got here. Keep up the good work!

Awesome work, you've really captured that deathly, silent, and lonely world they operate in.
