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.

    The tips below will help, read all of them.
    Focus on value when painting

    I use a few layers at the time then I merge them all. Focus on value (light and dark). Be honest and trust your eye because your brain will tell you otherwise. Draw what you see, not what you think the object should look like.
