Well the last tutorial was on how to draw manga style step by step which I hope you all enjoyed. In this next lesson I will be showing you "how draw Solid Snake", step by step. The reason why I chose to do this lesson on Snake is because I have the new PS3 and with it I bought Metal Gear Solid 4. Now even though Snake is an old man in this game version, it is still very good. Metal Gear Solid has some awesome graphics and detail with the settings, layout, vehicles, guns, machines, and other awesome characters that are part of the game. I have been playing Metal Gear Solid 4 straight for one week and it is very addictive. I love this game and I thought that I would never fall in love with a shoot’um up game like this one. It is sometimes very strategic and often difficult. I am currently working on act 4 which is pretty hard. The stinky thing about act 4 is that I have to do the act all over again because my nine year old brother threw out the serum I had to kill a vampire named Vamp. Now the Snake that you play in MGS4 is called Old Snake because of a cloning process that was used to create him. When he turned 35 in 2008, the cells in his body began to accelerate his aging process rapidly. In the game Metal Gear Solid: Guns of Patriots the year is 2014. At this year snake is suppose to be 42. The rapid aging process caused him to look 60. I was really confused at first until I looked it up at this cool metal gear wiki. When I was reading up on Solid Snake I found out something wicked cool! His character was based off of Kurt Russel from the movie Escape from New York. Kurt Russel played the role of Snake Plissken from Escape from New York. This is how our awesome friend Solid got his name. I haven’t seen the movie but I know who Kurt Russel is. He stars in my all time favorite movie Big Trouble In Little China. Anyways, I wanted to make a tutorial on the most awesome character in gaming history. I made the tutorial really easy and understandable too. I know most of you played this game before. My mom and dad used to play the first Metal Gear game all the time. Well people, I guess this is time for me to say peace out. I hope you will enjoy this tutorial on how to draw Snake from Metal Gear Solid step by step! I have other tutorials awaiting my presence! Peace out!

How to Draw Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid

how to draw solid snake from metal gear solid step 1

STEP 1.

Ok people, this is pretty much the first step on drawing Solid Snake. All you have to start with is the basic frame of the body. Drawing a frame when you begin drawing a body is very important. This frame will help you proportion the body. I used to draw without a frame. This made drawing people harder because I had no idea what position to make them in. Anyways, layout the lines for the arms, legs, and head. When drawing the head you should always make guidelines to setup the face. Use circles for the joints as well. Ready for the next step?

STEP 2.

Alright now we will draw out the lining for the legs and the muscles for the arm. You can see how the guidelines help out a lot! The guidelines will define where to layout the body! Anyways, don't forget to add in all those awesome details for the face and fingers. After you've done that we'll proceed onto the next step!

STEP 3.

Ok people this is where we will start drawing the rest of the legs. Remember that straight line you made in the guidelines near the crotch area? This will make things way easier! We are going to add in all those spiffy details to the calves after we've finished drawing the rest of legs. After that we have to finish off the arms and some of the face and head. Make some guidelines for Solid Snake's gun as well. How to draw solid snake is really complex sometimes *faints* ^_____^

STEP 4.

Now my kiddies, we will now add tons of those details onto Snake's legs. There are tons of straps and thingamajigs on his legs so we have to add them! I find drawing the straps pretty easy since they're all curvy lines. Don't forget to add in that little pouch on the side of his waist. In this step we will complete some of the gun as well as the hair on his head! Are you ready to proceed onto the next how to draw solid snake step?

STEP 5.

Whew, this is hardest part for me. I hate adding complex details to the inside of the straps. The shoes are pretty hard for me too. I can barely draw feet but this time I was lucky I guess. Alright, when you draw his face, be sure to add some shading to the his chin and top part of his mouth. This will give our handsome hero that gruff look he always appears to be. When you draw his eyes, you barely see any of his eyebrows because of his bandanna that he wears. It kinda reminds me of kakashi from naruto. After you've complete that we will start to add in the details of his hair. Mission accomplished? I'm making the impossible possible!!

STEP 6.

Now my children we will draw in some tiny details to the rest of Solid Snake A.K.A David. The fun part for me is adding in the two straps from the bandanna! I love how I made it in a flowing position! It portrays him as being in action! To finish off our hero, add some lasting details to his gun and knife.
