Metal Gear Solid


Following the (tenuous) videogame character theme initiated by Will, here's my favourite character; Solid Snake. Love the series of Metal Gear games, especially the first and fourth installments. I'm also a massive fan of Yoji Shinkawa, the art director on the games, and of Ashley Wood's artwork for the IDW series.
This one was really quick, about ten minutes with the ol' blue pencil and then 15 mins of colour on photoshop.

There are no solid snakes in Ireland Fran, St. Patrick kicked their asses. Yeah, I like when you go all cartoony in your sketches, I wish you'd get some of that goodness onto your pages.
