Heoh Kim’s Metal Gear Solid Artwork

If there’s one thing that freelance artist Heoh Kim could never be accused of, it’s creating dull artwork! His attention-grabbing Metal Gear Solid art first caught our eye on Twitter, and we were impressed with his distinctive style; it incorporates bold lines and (often) super vibrant colours, in a way that is reminiscent of comic book artwork. As a Metal Gear Solid fan, Heoh frequently draws characters from the series, and we feel that this style perfectly compliments their larger-than-life personalities.

Patrick Brown’s Metal Gear Artwork

We’ve featured a lot of Metal Gear Solid art on the Konami Blog so far, yet it still never fails to impress us in a massive way. Patrick Brown is a hugely talented artist, and his ‘realistic cartoon’ artwork is oozing with detail, charisma and quality. His Metal Gear pieces – featuring Big Boss, Raiden, Naked Snake, EVA and Old Snake – make each character of the stealth-action series look incredible, whilst the backgrounds set the scene and the atmosphere of their respective games exquisitely.
