Anyway lets get started with the crit!
I think you should go back to this and use a bit more of the assassins creed style armor with the elaborate wrist knife design. It's such an iconic part of the character design and if you added a bit more of the armor parts and made them metal gear looking I think it would look a lot stronger and you would se the assassin part of it more.
Doing like a variant of Altairs belt thingy would maybe help because his waist looks kinda empty and needs something more to make the design interesting and weigh him down a bit. Having some of the assassin creed style hanging cloth would be a lot better. You've incorporated it in the hood so have it come back in more parts of the design.
I have to admit I haven't played a lot of metal gear (played the second game and never really followed the series) so I don't know that much about the design of the game so if parts of this design comes from one of the games I probably wouldn't get the reference.
It's awesome that you have a strong siluett with two repeating triangles (one with the legs, the other with the arms). You can kinda se a square around him, the legs meet at the same line as the hands and when you have a character that fits in a box it repeats the shape of the canvas and makes it look less interesting, but those two triangles help to bring it back so I guess that's a plus and a minus effect.
I love the hood design, feels a lot like assassins creed and just looks really bad ass!
Overall I really like this, love the idea of mixing game designs and making something cool and new. Good job!
I saw some mixtures of game-characters yet but this one is the most original ones I took my eyes on. The important thing, that you can spot both assassin and cyborg, is greatly achieved. Your work is very plasic because the painting technique is well done. here and there could be slightly more details but its great though.
this is one of the artworks which defenatly stand out the mass and in my opinion, this magnificent concept is worth an own video game.
Keep it on and thanks for your stuff
If they ever do an AC game set in the future... I know where they should look for character design!
