190 Pretty Tasty
Weapons and food procure on site
“I want more!“
I’ve wanted to draw this for ages, but just never got around to it. This is Snake, or rather Big Boss, from Metal Gear Solid 3. One of the key features of the game is ensuring your survival by constantly eating food you kill/find. The highlight of all this killin’ and eatin’ is Snake’s reaction to the food – saying ‘Pretty tasty’ in Snake’s voice is always amusing.
After playing about an hour of MGS4 the other night (sooo, that’s about 5 minutes gameplay and 55 minutes of cutscene) I just had to do this one. Which is great, as I haven’t drawn anything for ages then there’s two within a week.
This was only a quicky, a few hours at most, but I realised through this piece that I really dislike drawing straight into Photoshop. I tried at first to save time, but it just isn’t the same as pencil to paper. Could be a downfall of mine that I should work on, but I feel more comfortable doing the basis of my drawings on paper still. I think it’s got something to do with the fact that drawing ‘on screen’ (with the Wacom tablet) doesn’t feel very delicate. Oh well!
All that aside, here’s another Metal Gear pic, as promised to the lovely people of Deviant Art a while ago.
