Raiden - Metal Gear Solid
In my opinion, one of my best illustrations to date. It really showcases my love for character design and the progress that I've made so far as a growing artist.
I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember– the usual “since I was a kid” stuff. That passion never went away, and I never once have I thought I should be doing something else other than art. I’ve done what I can to be what I want to be, and I’ve made lots of mistakes along the way, but that really is the part of the journey.
I’m still in the early stages of growing as an artist, so please watch me get better and better overtime. ^^
Where did the name “Rex” come from?
– Rex is an original character of mine around 2012 (among the many I made, that is). I actually entered the “roleplay” scene and used him as my main front. I never did use my real name online, and so people had referred to me as the same name as my character. Now that I am out of the scene, my attachment to him never went away, and so I decided to develop him further and place him into a world where he is the main character. That’s just a really really long story I’ve cut short into one paragraph. ^__^
What is your medium?
– I’m actually still exploring, but at large, I do digital art (with my trusty tablet) for most of my works (so far…). At the moment, I am training myself with the use of markers, color pencils, and watercolor.
