Grifter commish! by Chuckdee Grifter commish! by Chuckdee
I recently did this commission and it got me pretty nostalgic! it had been a while since someone had asked me to do Grifter, so it was pretty cool getting to draw him again... with the Wildstorm universe now being absorbed into DCU, I don't know how things are gonna pan out long-run for WS core characters... I hope they find their audience over at DC and they don't end up in comic-book limbo.

I grew up with Jim's (Lee) Grifter, BUT it was when Travis (Charest) first drew him in a more "Metal Gear Solid" style that I was "THAT'S IT!!!" this Dude is Wildstorms Solid Snake... except with CODA training and Gen Factor!!! (for all you fellow WS nerds! :) ) ..anyway, here's Cole Cash being all sneaky!

oh yeah, this piece is all Pigma pens, Copic grey markers, and a bit of Photoshop for the 'red-glint'!

We're currently working on a remake of the original MSX Metal Gear and are recruiting artists to work on the cutscenes (in the style of Peace Walker/Graphic Novels).

If you/someone you know might be interested then please get intouch with samples of your work at; ianraty@hotmail.com

You can also check the progress of the mod here; www.moddb.com/mods/metal-gear-remake

Thanks

this is so awesome!!!! I grew up with wildC.A.T.S and Grifter (and zealot) was my favourite of the bunch!!!!! a man who loves solid snake is always right :D I also played a looooot the franchise games :3 from the 1997 one to the guns of patriot... and it has nothing to do with the fact I'm a girl if I cried at the end of this game :3 you sir, are amazing!
