Hello People of Cg talk!

I would like to have a little challenge. Since Metal Gear Solid 2 has hit the stores, I would like to see you grabbing your pencils, paper, scanner or/and computer and make your best Metal Gear solid Image!

There are no real rules only that your Image needs to contain one or more characters from Metal Gear Solid 1 or 2. All materials can be used (cg and traditional).
Post your entry here at this tread or you can post your "Work in progress" in a new tread.

Deadline: 15th of MAY 2002!!! please notify when you are not content with the deadline!

So go get to it and show us what you're worth!:wip:

For reference please check

Hey, cool. I love the MGS art-stuff. I'd enter, but I don't think I'm good enough. Maybe I'll give it a shot, anyway...

I think MGS2 is only avaliable in north america and japan for now.

02 February 2002, 09:57 PM
Okay here are some other entries I made.....kinda hope to get you guys going and post your stuff too!

Here's a quick picture I did of Ninja...*I loved that guy in MGS1*

04 April 2002, 06:33 AM
Okay, I finally got around to scanning my meager entry. I drew this on lined paper with a pencil. REALLY high-quality materials, there.

Sorry 'bout the link, but this forum and my computer don't get along, and I can't seem to get the images to pop up in my posts...

04 April 2002, 07:41 AM
great idea Sangotten!! I JOYN it! my first entry...5 mins work!but wait 4 more!;)

04 April 2002, 05:25 PM
I'm up for this one, will post asap.
Has anyone seen the Art of Metal Gear Solid book? It's one of my favourite books, kicks ass.
BTW, am I the only one that was disappointed with MGS2? Really really easy, and the story line wasn't as credible as the first. Also didn't like the villains as much, and the Ninja was used to much greater effect in Number 1.
Still, count me in for a few drawings! :)

04 April 2002, 07:58 PM
a snake pik.....i love this thread.

04 April 2002, 12:36 AM
RAVEN, he was the coolest, jack.

if you don't see any pic, just go here (

04 April 2002, 07:53 AM
Yeah, no kidding. The sequel's graphics were very nice, indeed, but the first put it to shame in story and characters. The original just felt so much more cinematic. It remains one of my favorites and probably will for quite some time... Heh heh. This post has nothing at all to do with 2D Art...

04 April 2002, 03:30 PM
Hey nice work guys. I'm going to work on a sketch in school today. :D

I'm glad this topic was picked for the challenge I love MGS!!! I still play the first MGS for kicks almost every day lol. YES I need PS2...I have played alot of the seqeul seeing my buddys got it and I'm very impressed. :D

04 April 2002, 04:09 PM

This is funny, I never thought this thread would be picked up again...:D
Okay I've seen some great stuff...-OZ- You're amazing, those lines are great... And Rtv...that Raven of yours is truly magnificent, the colouring really nice, you might just wanto turn the bright colour down a bit. Gaetano125 I like your one too, you said you'd probaly suck but think for someone who sux your doing quite well!!!

I think I'm gonna drop some more MGS drawings here later!! :wip:

04 April 2002, 03:12 AM
Not bad at all. The 'abs' look excellent! The latest one is best, with the black background. I myself would have bent one or two of the fingers on his left hand, though. It looks a little unnatural the way it is. And finish the other hand!

04 April 2002, 03:38 AM
Hey Sangotten !!! Tnx 4 ur comments!I loved 1st MGS...and i have mgs2 (but not still played)!I think that this is a great thread!i love your ninja!But i want more!!!Kmon man!you opened this thread,so nourish it with your work!!arf arf!And to the other artists here....i saw very good works!Keep on drawing more guys!

04 April 2002, 05:06 PM
Thanks -OZ- and Cockofthewok!!!

Hmmm I see that there is an 2D challenge forum open!!! Great!!
-Cockofthewok>> Here in the Netherlands MGS2 is allready out but the big problem is that i DON'T HAVE A PS2!!!! So that a big bummer, but I've played it and liked it very much allthough I can see that the story line is not as good as the first! Your Ninja looks really nice, I think the last picture is the best...stealth rules!!!

-OZ- don't you worry I've got one coming up!!!:buttrock:

04 April 2002, 12:18 AM

04 April 2002, 08:50 PM
I just wanted to share this great Metal Gear Solid Picture which was made by Joe Madureira for the cover of Playstation Magazine.

inspiring:buttrock: :buttrock:

04 April 2002, 05:29 PM
Another one I found on the internet made by an arist called Rey, this is his Metal Gear Solid entry;)

Hey I think we need some more entries!!!!

04 April 2002, 09:49 PM
Looks really cool, but it seems like a ten minute test. Also, Snake looks more like Dante from Devil may Cry

04 April 2002, 08:41 AM
Thats cuz in MGS2, you play two characters. Snake and ... some other guy whom i don't remember. The blonde guy is "Snake's replacement" after his presumed death half way through the game. I'll let you guess if Snake is really dead or not... :thumbsup:

04 April 2002, 03:13 PM
Still working 4 this challenge!.....i think that i will follow the shinkawa style!.....hey Sangotten im still waiting 4v ur great 2d.
Your ninja is my favourite....very paint like!:bounce:
