The Sorrow by Kain-Moerder The Sorrow by Kain-Moerder
Here he is, the enigmatic Sorrow from 'Metal Gear 3'.

I like crazy psy-characters you can meet in MGS games. Working on The Sorrow I tried to combine all their features in one character. So The Sorrow floats in the air like Psycho Mantis and has two marionettes like Screaming Mantis. I also altered his arms to make them more marionette-like. The left marionette has no arm - it's a reference to Revolver Ocelot.

Now I need some rest. After that I'm going to start working on The Boss (The Joy).

That boss "battle" made me feel horrible.
It took more than half an hour because I killed almost anyone within sight first time I played Snake Eater.
Made it worse when I heard the parrot say "Grandpa! Grandpa!"

Yep. I've never understood this 'killing is bad' approach Kojima uses.

That was really heart-breaking indeed. (

Well most FPS games are a "slaughter anything that moves."
So with Kojima making a game like "Here is a gun but try not to kill anyone" to be an interesting turn on FPS.
Correct me if I am wrong but in the acts of espionage, murder is not really something you want to do as it will eliminate the stealth.

FPS = First Person Shooter.

'"Here is a gun but try not to kill anyone" to be an interesting turn on FPS.'
U-huh. Here's a sword, but don't swing it. Here's a lovely girl, but don't fall in love. Great logic. Especially with Kojima games where protagonist is always stands against the whole hostile enemy force without reinforcements. It's even more silly than send an agent on a mission without weapons (MGS). To me, Kojima's approach is quite silly. Anime-style silly, which isn't a good thing because Kojima pull out all that illogical crap with serious face, hinting that 'all this circus is for real'.

Correct me if I am wrong but in the acts of espionage, murder is not really something you want to do as it will eliminate the stealth.
You are wrong. Kojima's games are not about espionage. They are about anime-style solo badass who overcomes everything on his way like Rambo. Real spies don't crawl across battlefields, they don't shoot at helicopters, fight with cyborg ninjas and destroy a tank with grenades.

Well, it is interesting to get other people's opinions.

But yes, I love the art style.

Love it, sorrow was always one of my favorites too, I just like the idea of him being the grim reaper of warriors and watching over snakes endeavors.

The idea of that kind of character was really interesting indeed. Plus I like 'psyke' characters.

Nice, I really like the thought you've put behind combining elements from the other similar characters. His pose has an elegance to it and I like the atmosphere that comes from the forest background and the lighting ^^

This is amazing, I like it the way you've made him look partially see through in places as well.

His was the most peculiar boss battle of all time I think, if you can consider it a battle.

And definitely, even on the battlefield all I heard about him doing was talking to dead guys.
