Default metal gear solid



Pencils by Joe Mad, inks by Tim Townsend. Everyone and their 3 legged dog must have tried colouring one by now... so here's mine!

cheers

Looks great, but one nitpick I'm sure you realize: In the games , Snake has brown hair.

What subject do you teach? Art I'm sure, but more specificly..

I agree about the arm, but I guess it's more about the coloring. Good stuff! Just wondering who the woman is in the front though (Olga I'm assuming? In that case, it'd be Metal Gear Solid 2 rather than the original.)

He's holding the gun with both hands. His left index is on the trigger and his right hand is wrapped around his left. Either the penciller thinks Snake is a leftie or the pic got flipped.

Great coloring. I love the camo on the pants.

Ooh, I see it now. Still not very ambiguous though, but hell, it's probably due to my dying eyesight.

It looks really nice.

Only complaint could be that your attempts to give their clothing texture makes it look like it's made of marbolt.

But it's the sweetes incantation I've seen of that thing so far.

Lancer... your avatar... haha. Incredible, much like Sean's revealed day job.

Awesome stuff, only one gripe: Burned shadows. The warmth of your highlights combined with the burns flattens everything out, to an extent--although it does produce a pleasant stylistic effect.

Another nitpicking: laser sights on guns can't be seen other than where it exits the sight and where it hits. And even if you could see the beam, it wouldn't give off such a glow on the barrel.

Still like the image though
