Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes by PatrickBrown Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes by PatrickBrown
I've been meaning to do a piece of fan art for this for a while now, Big Boss is one of my favourite characters in the gaming world so I had a lot of fun making this.

I've played the game through a few times now, it's so good and what a great build up to The Phantom Pain. This pic was a bit of a challenge, I'm trying to add more details to my line work these days, and I want my backgrounds to be more detailed too. The rain was fun to work with, I haven't had to work with wetness in a while so it was challenging.

Don't forget if you're interested in learning how to do art like this, you can enroll in my classes:

Epic art work. The rainy night time, the uniform the art style, the design and composition, and the details are just nicely done. Big Boss is an interesting character. Age has not slowed him one bit. I haven't played the game yet, but the red band trailer on you tube was the best game trailer I've ever seen. Anyway, I like how you capture the look and feel of the stealthiness in this pic. Just seeing this, has me hearing the rain fall, accompanied by a sneaking soundtrack. For me, viewing any artwork is an experience for me. Overall, nicely done. ^^

The rain effects are mad cool especially with the light reflecting off the concrete there, so i'm guessing it's the same way you'd design blood right?

Is there any videogame man sexier than Snake?

I love how you did that lens flare, makes it seem very game-legit lol. And the details on Snake's beard as wonderful.

I really wasn't expecting there to be an MGS 5 originally, after what happened to Snake in MGS 4, and also with Metal Gear Rising (I thought Rising was essentially MGS 5 and the series was going to focus on Raiden now).

However, I was wrong about that, and Big Boss now taking the role of Snake is just so awesome!
