I have no idea who this guy is, but he looks cheeky.  Beautifully and cleanly executed work.

Thank you very much...I appreciate you peeking by on the art.
The character is Snake or known as Big Boss from the video game series Metal Gear Solid.
Thank you for looking on the detail of work I did in Water color paint.

Like a Boss
htanjo Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Great artwork! At first, I also think this painting is a digital art because of the sensitiveness.
I like The Boss and Jack, too. :-)

Jeebz! How long did this one take? It's all huge and detailed! I lack the patience to attempt many big projects...

Awesome job.
PokeTheCactus Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2013
This is incredibly beautifully painted, the detailing alone is amazing. You've captured Big Boss really well, and in such a stunning location. :) As a huuuge MGS fan, I salute you :salute:

This is traditional?? OMG! amazing !!

I think Naked Snake would proud of being well portrayed like you did it. Also I like your clean style it seems a mix of anime with reality, specially I love when you put the music that inspired you to do it.
Ah, would be funny If we could do a family reunion since I drew his Son, Solid Snake. By the way, your outline drawings are sick! I wonder If someday you would try bring that expressive outline to the final work, as a experiment. keep going with your beautiful work ;)

Very well done. Not familiar with the portable MGS games, never really been into handheld gaming. But I love the MGS series. This is a great depiction of Boss.

No one could surpass Naked Snake or Big boss if you want to call him that during his younger days. not even his 3 sons.
MariovsSonic2008 Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Student General Artist
O. M. G. Never have I seen such eloquent taste in art on games. Big Boss has always been my idol since 2004, and because of him and The Boss having "Loyalty to the end," I never gave up on ANY of my friends since. You have done the same by drawing this eye candy that is Snake (no homo), and I wish to thank you for it. :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:
starxade Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
Thank you :hug: :hug:
