Since 1987 I'm a hugh fan of the Metal Gear game series. From Metal Gear 1 on MSX to Metal Gear Solid 5 The Phantom Pain, I've played almost all of them from start to finish. So I thought it would be a great idea to create a piece of fan art, speed modeling the Metal Gear TX-55 from the original series.
It was really a nice thing to work on. There are not many original images or concept art from the original model. A pixelated screenshot, an image from the cover and manual, these were the reference images to get started with. During modeling, these simple imagery transformed into a 3D scene.
I remember in 1987 as a kid, imagining how this game could look like in real. Now, using Blender, I could make that dream possible.
