I wish I could receive a Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain gift as good as this one. Lavina Marie (one of the Reddit user) has made an impressive looking watercolor painting of Snake from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain promotional poster. It is a gift from Lavina Marie for her boyfriend. Lavina shared the painting on Gaming Subreddits with a message: “As a Christmas gift, I decided to paint one of my boyfriend’s favorite characters; I’d never actually painted video game art before, so this was a fun challenge. Medium: Winsor and Newton watercolors on Hahnemuhle paper Please do not repost without my permission and without crediting (Lavina Marie)”
I would really like to see how Hideo Kojima, the creator of Metal Gear Solid series will react to this masterpiece from Lavina. I have tweeted this image to him and awaiting his response. As mention above by Lavina, this was his first try at video game art, so just imagine how the end result will look once she gets more practice on this subject.
