Raiden - Metal Gear Solid 4

Although slightly annoying in MGS2, Raiden COMPLETELY redeemed himself in MGS4!!
Epic Character redesign and battle scenes made him one of the games stand out characters for the right reasons this time :)

All painted up in PS-CS4

Thank you to the DA's who folowed the wip's and for the feedback. Hope you like it :)

As usual, full size is huuuuuge! :D

At the risk of sounding over-dramatic, I don't think I can adequately express how brilliant I think this piece is. I love the detail, especially the scratches and scrapes on the metal. I also love how you have put little things in like the warning not to touch the lens surface and the bar code. :) I also like, oddly enough, how you have done the lips. I never manage to get those right, but you've done it so well! :3

raiden can't replace grey fox though! D: he did redeem himself, but grey fox was a better character in my mind... good job though. looks real! :3

Thank you very much! :)
It was a part I was really worried about, but ended up being the easiest part on the whole damn thing :D

Just a contracted selection of the base, a couple of airbrush swoops and a 100% opacity eraser to make the clear parts.
(I tend to work everything on it's own layers, highlights shades etc so makes it easier for me to do stuff like that)
