Sweet Raiden Sketch by Ernesto-Alonso Sweet Raiden Sketch by Ernesto-Alonso
just a sketch to show off. This is a WIP

One thing I neglected to mention, this version of Raiden is from the Sweet MGS series. but I got inspired by a cosplayer to draw this. The only real thing I truly dont like about the designs is the whole "we're not wearing pants" thing. (Just look them up)

This isn't even how the final product will looks. I still gotta tweak a lot such as the shoulders and the neck.
Hopefully all goes well.

updated the shoulders.
I'm welcoming all types of critique!!!


RAIDEN belongs to Konami

your guidelines on the face shouldn't be a straight line--they should be curved, according to the perspective of the head. That's why the headphones look off from the other one. If you look at your head in a different angle, the guidelines should follow the flow of the head--your head is round, your guidelines should be following the contour of your head. Otherwise you're neglecting the fact that you're trying to impose 'depth' (the illustion that it's 3d or physical).

You wanted some feedback so I guess I'll try and do my best on this. Considering yes, we all know that there are a good amount of jokes centering around Raiden either being the target of gay people or being confused with a women the lips are a bit much here for me. Even if you were trying to go for realism to a certain extent, the fact that you've fully illustrated them rather than hinting at them with a few lines (like most do for men's lips) gives him the impression of either being a female or having put on a lot of lip-stick. The eyelash thing like I said above given raiden's whole deal or nature can be passable though some folks still might find it too effeminate.

As far as his hair and jacket and such go he turned out pretty solid I'd say. Maybe stand for the shoulder pads in his jacket to be a tad more geo-metric or less round and poofy to an extent. His neck is on the long side but styalisticaly I like that so I'm bias.

Good deal.

actually this is based on some figurines in which the characters are female.

Yeah they're based on some toys, but I saw one person cosplaying and I actually thought it was cool. Yeah but anyway, I changed the shoulder, all I gotta do is photoshop the neck and then I'mma start digitally inking it.
