Solid Snake Arsenal by aaronminier Solid Snake Arsenal by aaronminier
An idea I had based off a picture of Cable I remember seeing when I was 9. Basically loaded with every gun imaginable and grunting the words "man to man", as if it was going to be a fair fight. Yeah.
Well, I translated it to our friend Snake here. I kept this one really loose and didn't tighten my pencils much at all before inking. I like to just cut loose every now and then.
Definitely a Miller/Wood influence on this one.....

I played MSG3, and I know even from that, that Snake doesn't try to look cool, just take them down, and is always prepared. I wonder if he is carrying all those on him, how he would fit them in his backpack...... I love this art, it shows what MSG without inventory comes down to. :D

Looks like we'll have to trade out guns as we go in MGS5 -- I'll miss carrying around a weapon for all occasions at all times, but it's a realistic touch that I appreciate.

This reminds of a cover art image for one of the first Metal Slug games, I love it :D

Ocelot gave the single action to Big Boss (Naked Snake) -- this is Solid. And the Nikita was just gay.

Snake is timeless. A Snake by any other name is still a BADASS.
SAA's are made of Epic and FTW.
And making a fucking missile chase down a running guard is fucking funny as hell. :iconbazookaplzz:

But I was a big fan of placing C4 in the urinal...

Personally... I enjoyed snaeaking up behind the guards, choking them out, and then dropping a claymore nearby.
As soon as they wake up...:iconboomplz:

I think the only tip I can offer is to just practice practice practice...

That and don't be afraid to mess up with the ink, because it can take a while to master.

Wow, that awesome... I always wondered how snake could carry all those guns... I have like 60 something weapons in MGS4 not including all the other stuff... I guess Snake is so much of a man he can carry it all. :D

Man, please make another like this, but based on Link (zelda)

I can't imagine how many things he carries all the time

also, great artwork, that came to my mind everytime snake picked a gun on mgs4, but I think no other could express it the way you did
