I was both surprised and not surprised when they released an artbook for the fourth (and possibly final) game of the MG:Solid Series. Here it is, in all its mighty glory. The book hosts a big collection of sketches and official art by none other than Yoji Shinkawa, who has a POWERFUL sense of the brush. Takayuki Yanase also has GREAT mechanical work, which includes pieces for all the Metal Gears in the series. What I love about these kind of books are the attention to details on every character and vehicle.
Though I missed out on the Art collection book for Metal Gear Solid 2, and I highly doubt there is one for the third game, I was hoping that at least they’d add in some love for the PSP Ac!d series, but beggars can’t be choosers. But to be fair, it’s supposed to focus on the 4th game. I just want some artistic love for the Cobra Unit Members. Below are some pages I’ve managed to scan to give you an idea.
