Snake Out! My own lil tribute to a the character from a game series tt has kept me in suspense since 1998, The Legendary Solid Snake. Tried to give this piece a lil more 'substance' and 'history' than my normal 'action' kinda poses n all. Woulda liked to make this one as spiffy as I could, but alas, time's not on my side. 120608: Snake's final mission is finally here...

"Some Legends are meant to die"

Hope u dig!

If they are gonna do a Metal Gear movie, they better get someone that captures the badassery of Snake flawlessly.

I've just got into Metal Gear, so excuse me but I have to comment on this epic piece of work.

This does a great job of showing the history of Snake. I like the red trail connecting the three pictures of him. The background takes this into a whole new level of awesome, though. It looks traditionally Japanese but also "Cold War" at the same time somehow. The detail is just awesome. Lastly, it's neat how the lineart is Shinkawa style but the shading is yours. You NAILED the lineart style, and this skill in adapting styles is part of why I didn't think your art was legit at first. ^^; My apologies.

This is one of my 3 favorite deviations on this site. Well done, sir.

Cheers man. :) Dont think its close to Shinkawa's but I tried. Besides, these days most artists' styles are a derivative of some other artist who inspired them. Take care and keep illustrating too!

Shinkawa's style varies depending on whether he's illustrating something in detail or just making cool drawings of stuff... the linework here looks very much like his illustration style to me. :shrug: Though the artist tends to see their art differently from everyone else.
Very true what you said about art styles.

Thanks a lot for the encouragement. You keep drawing too, your stuff is amazing.
