star – inktober 2018 day 8

8mgs2-inktober-star

metal gear solid 2 introduced the idea of having to deal with the enemy guards you’d incapacitated. You had to drag around the guards, hide them in alcoves, or stuff them in lockers so fellow guards wouldn’t stumble upon them and your presence wouldn’t be detected.

After using a wash in yesterday’s sketch, I decided to try it out here today. I’m digging the results.

And here’s the original sketch.

exhausted – inktober 2018 day 7

7-mgs5-exhausted-inktober-wash

In Metal Gear 4, Snake is an old man, exhausted by years on the battlefield.

He wears a sneaking suit that helps him blend in, octopuslike, with his environment.

I try to convey that effect with a little ink wash. I’m not quite successful, but the effect is interesting, nonetheless.

As a little bonus, here’s the preliminary drawings.

First the pencil sketch, than the inks.

Onward.
