Solid Snake Arsenal

An idea I had based off a picture of Cable I remember seeing when I was 9. Basically loaded with every gun imaginable and grunting the words "man to man", as if it was going to be a fair fight. Yeah.
Well, I translated it to our friend Snake here. I kept this one really loose and didn't tighten my pencils much at all before inking. I like to just cut loose every now and then.
Definitely a Miller/Wood influence on this one.....

Makes me think about how goofy (but cute) the animation was for Snake whenever he reloads an rpg or his grenade launcher (in Peace Walker).
I played MSG3, and I know even from that, that Snake doesn't try to look cool, just take them down, and is always prepared. I wonder if he is carrying all those on him, how he would fit them in his backpack...... I love this art, it shows what MSG without inventory comes down to. :D

Looks like we'll have to trade out guns as we go in MGS5 -- I'll miss carrying around a weapon for all occasions at all times, but it's a realistic touch that I appreciate.

This reminds of a cover art image for one of the first Metal Slug games, I love it :D

It's hilarious because this is definitely what he would look like hauling so much gear around

NOOOO! I DON"T SEE THE NIKITA LAUNCHER!!! OR THE SINGLE ACTION SNAKE GOT FROM OCELOT!! WEAK!
aaronminier's avatar
Ocelot gave the single action to Big Boss (Naked Snake) -- this is Solid. And the Nikita was just gay.

Snake is timeless. A Snake by any other name is still a BADASS.
SAA's are made of Epic and FTW.
And making a fucking missile chase down a running guard is fucking funny as hell. :iconbazookaplzz:

Ahh..agreed. I forgot how fun that was...

But I was a big fan of placing C4 in the urinal...

Personally... I enjoyed snaeaking up behind the guards, choking them out, and then dropping a claymore nearby.
As soon as they wake up...:iconboomplz:
