TECHNICALLY this IS fanart because I am using both Gaia items and Metal Gear Solid inspiration.
LMAO. You know...at first I wasn't going to post this. But I suppose I should explain some things.
In Gaiaonline.com, when I'm not keeping my avatar as a turtle form, I decide to get into cosplay of things I currently like.
For example, most of the people I know, remember that I sometimes dress my avie as a female Dante. Which is here:
In the past, I've done other "Rule 63" cosplays with my avatar. I've done Kyosuke Kagami (Rival Schools/Project Justice), Black Jack (Black Jack anime/manga), Ryu (Street Fighter), Travis Touchdown (No More Heroes). And of course Dante (Devil May Cry versions 1, 2, and 3.)
CURRENTLY though, I've been in such a Metal Gear/Solid fix that I decided to do a Solid Snake-ish avatar.
Well, why the hell not? It's fun.
I actually did a backview image because actually, that's all the avie was at first until I tweaked some things.

I'm not sure if many people like it, but I know some people do in Gaia; so that alone is awesome.
But another reason why I did a pic of this was to get practice in this coloring style since I am planning on opening for commissions finally this summer/early fall.
So you could say this is sorta an example of what quality of work I could end up doing.
So yeah. Anyways, I hope you like it.
