SOLID SNAKE's many hats by AdamWarren SOLID SNAKE's many hats by AdamWarren
Behold, the very first endpage piece I wrote and drew for the videogame magazine PSM... The red lettering was done in-house at PSM, hence the repro from an actual magazine page.

This would be the first of many Metal-Gear-Solid-related jokes, and the first of many, many jokes at Raiden's expense... The poor guy.

Anyhoo, as the caption in the corner makes clear, this is a riff on one of the weirder items from METAL GEAR SOLID 3... The so-called "croc hat*", which I presume Solid Snake could use to sneak on people...? Dunno, never played the game. Wait a second... Would enemies blithely ignore the presence of a very large, very predatory reptile nearby?

*I think that's actually a gharial on his head, not a crocodile per se, but I might be wrong.

This is so genius. my favorite part is how "mechanical tail undulates in rythmic, sexy motion?" repeats in Raiden's panel. That's just hilarious.

"Dig these child bearing hips, baby!" :lmao:

I'm sold on that line alone! I used to buy PSM... issues arrive here ultra-late, so I didn't know circulation stopped. :(

Any chance you'd make more of these, post-PSM? :)

Sadly, no, as I've little free time to indulge in any non-paying work along these lines; I really did enjoy the PSM gig, though.

I'm not sure if the gavial hat could be used to really sneak up on enemies, but you could use it to hide from them (although I only really found a couple of places to effectively use it).

I'd go for the Raiden one if he could just get a more diagonal angle and could be strapped to your face like a mask - Though you could always have the handle in one's mouth to keep him from dropping... :drool:

*Coughs* homoerotic creepy sillies of jokeness aside... The Raiden hat just epitomised the madness... From random to intended puns; it was all ingenious xD

I am also very much astonished by your shading ^^

It's probably true that the cardboard box is more popular than Snake himself. :D Even in games that barely involved Snake (like MGS2), the cardboard box reigned supreme.
