The Sorrow by AlexisRoyce The Sorrow by AlexisRoyce
So Metal Gear Solid 3 happened this weekend. The game was seriously amazing; The Sorrow's battle was a thing of beauty. And Big Boss/Naked Snake/John McAwesome was a brilliant protagonist. Really looking forward to Peace Walker.

I did a version of this with the other members of the Cobra unit floating by all ghost-like, but ended up not liking it as much, so I scrapped it. Especially since I kind of like the idea of their deaths not being reflected in a pacifist run (even though they'll be there no matter what).

Something happier:

The way you executed this piece looks AWESOME :D
I love the water and rain, they look so good, and the mood is suitably depressing and creepy! Love it :D

This is so beautiful! I don't even play this game, but I would put this poster up in my house... the colors, the light, the rendering of the water, the ephemeral figure in the water - everything about this picture is phenomenal. I love your art!!!

Thank you! If you like this, check out an LP of Metal Gear Solid 3, specifically "The Sorrow" 's boss fight. It won't have as much significance if you just watch that battle, but it's terribly beautiful. You can't actually fight; you just plod through the water, and the ghosts of EVERY NPC you've killed float by and attack you. Since you can get through the game without killing anyone, it's a reminder of the unnecessary lives you've taken (among other things. It's a game that asks you to deconstruct and crit. Delicious).

Beautiful! Simply beautiful. The details of their opposing eyes being shot out. The painted raindrops on the river. The gloomy color pallette. ALL IS BEAUTIFUL!
