M.G.S. by JoaquimDossantos M.G.S. by JoaquimDossantos
Okee-dokee then.... Here's a new piece...finally..... Anyhow M.G.S.2 was well on it's way to becoming my favorite games of all time...That is of course until Hideo Kojima forced us to play as the "girlyboy" Raiden. What was the man was thinking?! Well, the first level was still sweet as hell.

This is actually the first time i've attempted to color anything besides a character model in photoshop.(I know.. I'm a late bloomer) I tried to use the greens and aquas found i the games color palette and there's also just a bit of diffused lighting in spots, which I'm kinda' proud of. This piece probably took way too long for what it is, but i'm still figuring things out and experimenting along the way... All in all I'm happy with the way it turned out, and it was alot of fun to do!!

So badass! And I agree, the tanker was the best part of MGS2!

Great art style. I can already see it if this were to be translated to tv as an anime series of some kind. Well done. Although if I were to nip pick I would probably try to give it a bit more of a darker tone so as to suit the mood of the extraordinary and violent setting that it's based. Possibly by making harsher lightning. Having said that, the detail is great and snake does resemble snake so nice work. Keep it up XD

Anyway.
This is really well done, especially for your first time coloring an full image.
It looks so professional; well done!
BTW, love the rain effect. It's so soft and pretty.

Great Gertrude that's fantastic! i remember playing the first level so many times because i felt so deprived of Solid Snake. I thought it was hilarious though, when they made Raiden into Volgin's lover in Snake Eater.

Hideo Kojima has had letters or something from the female fans of MGS saying that they wanted a more feminine hero.
And oh yeah! The first level WAS sweet! I had sooo much fun messing around with these stupid soldiers!

Aaaahh, I remember -exactly- where this is. I usually hold the guard up and open the nearest door to escape as he stands there stupidly with his arms up.

Raiden makes a decent cyborg, but jesus, I just can't stand him. That hair...

The colors you used are perfectly reminiscent to those in the Tanker level, and I love how you did the rain. Lovely. :3

your ability to capture body movement is unparalell ! and you do it with a slightly geometric line style, very good! also, since you r a late bloomer at PS (as am I) I knoow what ya mean by things taking longer then they should. anyway, keep up the practice, youll be a wiz at it in no time! stop by and check out my PS work if you have a moment to give me your... ahem, two cents. lol

That is badass, to say the least. I love it. Only thing I object to is Snake's overly long bandanna... which a bunch of artists seem to do. Not quite sure why.

Anyways, well done.

No way, playing Raiden wasn't bad. It was the same controls and movements xD I suppose you just dislike the character. As a female fan of MGS I have to say I was very please to play Raiden. I never get enough of watching those boys run in their skin tight suits ;D They have some manly shapely butts.
