183 Big Boss
The original and best™
Have you played through Metal Gear Solid 4? If not, I recommend doing it now. It’s a painful endurance, but worth it.
For those who have completed it, you will know why I did this. I’m trying my best not to spoil anything here, but… (the picture doesn’t help) As much as I want to talk about it, I’ll keep my thoughts about it all to myself.
For this MGS piece, I chose to keep it quite rough for two reasons. Firstly, I didn’t want to smooth out the skin too much, as it suited being rough. Second… it takes half the time! There isn’t exactly loads of thought behind this other than “I wanted to draw Big Boss”, so simple was fine by me.
I was also going to colour it, but wasn’t exactly sure what to do, so I went into greyscale and thought it worked rather well. It’s nothing special, but fun to draw.
I’m not overly happy about the gun in the foreground, it doesn’t really stand out as much as I’d want it to, and kind of hard to tell what it is unless you’ve played lots of first person shooters! But I felt it necessary, just to represent something from MGS4…
