Combine by abigbat Combine by abigbat
FINISHED VERSION HERE: [link]

I was playing Half-Life 2 and couldn't help but draw a Combine soldier... The Combine are surely one of the most impressive alien forces ever conceptualized - their design is flawless; powerful and militaristic, and the way they were introduced as a force in HL2 is a testament to Valve's creative talent.

Corel Painter IX and Photoshop CS2.

Yeah, the Combine are pretty rad. One of the things I like especially about them is that practically no Combine (save for those damned Advisors.) are alien, not even the Striders, they used to be human.

That looks ace man, the only thing I would point out is that the arm supporting the front of the rifle seems a tad long. Other than that its's perfect. I love the style man.
