You'd have to be familiar with both Metal Gear Solid and Calvin and Hobbes to fully get this. I kept things plain and simple (like the colouring and the background) to have a comic strip-look.

I messed up Snake's lower half. I kinda rushed it. And I'm not sure if the box should be bigger or not. The reference pictures weren't THAT consistent. Oh well...the image is just for humour.

 Not a fan of Metal Gear Solid, but I still enjoyed the joke. :D

Ha, that made me smile.

 Hahahaha, that's genius :D I would love to have seen this in the paper this morning. Plenty of newspaper comics I've seen are so dull

Yeah, I got lazy with the pose on this one.

"also it woulld be nice if it was more dynamic, if he was pointing on the box for example"

I remember trying that at the time, but it wasn't working out and I was getting tired of working on it. I wasn't good with posing at the time (for pixel art).

Thanks for the suggestions.

Thanks. Glad you like it.

WOW That rocks!!!! i would have died laughing if it was a bit refined!!! Dont be afraid to kill me!

I think that different style of Snake adds to the comic effect (it would be even better if he would look polygonal) but I agree with you that pose could be better (showing that he really needs to hide).

nice... tho i dont rly know bout calvin and hobbes , but i do know snake....

anyway.... i think if u are going for that comic feel, as u said,  u should make snake more simpel (less shading/ details) , kinda like calvin, now the two styles are rly clashing, thats kinda intended, i know, but....

also ur amount of colors is pretty high, around 35, ...could be less....

another thing is snakes pose, its very stiff. the knees look  strange and there are several other issues ...  also it woulld be nice if it was more dynamic, if he was pointing on the box for example ...

quick edit
