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.
