How to paint Metal Gear Solid Raiden

How to paint Metal Gear Solid Raiden.  Drawing MGS (Metal Gear Solid) Raiden digital painting tutorial. This post is a quick speedpainting digital painting demo of drawing and painting Raiden character from the latest Metal Gear solid gaming series. So I just saw the trailer not too long ago and I think it so badass that I have to somehow scribble the character study out. This one is just a quick painting of the character portrait, it is more like a study or something like that rather than an actual concept art.
It's early in the morning so I thought it would be good to do a quick sketch in the morning and I think I'm going to do it regularly since I have more time nowadays.

So here are the basic steps, I usually just start out scribble then create some kind of a silhouette or shapes that are readable. Then I will go in and give it some lighting so it would create form. That's how I usually paint.

Here are some more video tutorials that are similar to this one on the post. You can go watch Character Design Face Male Merchant Character, or Drawing Male Face Swordman and Learn how to draw and paint face.

If you are a beginner, no sweat, we have stuff for you too. Go check out these basic instruction for step by step drawing "Drawing humans head female face how to" and step by step still images goto digital painting and drawing learn to draw and How to draw face and head shading.

For figures and bodies study, muscles and human anatomy for artist go watch Drawing body muscle torso anatomy each comes with both video and step by step images along the side and Drawing arm muscles bicep tricep video. Have fun watching. Well, hope these short video tutorials and tips are helpful.

yolee> Thanks for the support brother, I am glad they are helpful to you. It varies from person to person, I personally like them big...but I only get the medium one. Bamboo in my opinion, is too small if you want to do real professional work. If you are able to spend, then I would get the intuo. Good luck. :)

Anonymous> Thanks, I am glad you feel inspired somehow. My job is now half way accomplished, the other half is now you guys go DRAW and PAINT something nice! :)
