Snake Bite by Artgerm Snake Bite by Artgerm
Another snake fanart. Testing out some new custom brushes in Painter. I am pretty happy with the result. :P

Done in Painter IX, Photoshop CS. 1hr. No ref

*Character originally designed by Yohji Shinkawa. << He is the real inspiration. :-)

Good lord, I love and absolutely ADORE the way you draw Snake. You capture is character so perfectly with all the facial expressions you give him and your art skills are absolutely mind-blowing. Please keep this up, it's absolutely mesmerizing :heart:

No references used and still able to pull such a wonderful likeliness to one of gaming history's greatest characters. And to even being able to draw it in Shinkawa's style, it is simply amazing. Wonderful work! :D
