Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain is one of the most fun and addictive games I ever played. As much time as I spend making toys based on Metal Gear, I probably spend just as much time building up mother base, which is also why I couldn’t just make one, but a couple of different Snakes.
I used a Metal Boss inflames head sculpt as a base and completely re-sculpted his face to add scars and horns and also his eye patch.
As per usual I began with the lips and worked my way towards the edges of his head and finished him by adding his eye and hair.
He also comes with a darker and a brighter scarf, because after all you can also switch out the scarf in the game.
I also sculpted his bionic arm and used a thin cloth to sew his shoulder pads and the thing on his knee. I love the bionic arm because it pretty much allows you to show articulation without having to hide it.
For this version of Snake I also painted his entire outfit myself and painting a tiger stripe camo is quite fun.
