Quick draw: Online Metal Gear art studio invites you to contribue your work

Konami has opened up an online art studio for artistically-inclined Metal Gear fans to draw and exhibit their work.

The Metal Gear art studio serves as a finale to the Metal Gear 25th Anniversary celebrations. The online canvas launched earlier today and lets artists use the tools that series' artist Yoji Shinkawa favours.

Those not tempted to scribble down their best Solid Snake can watch the work of others come together in real-time, interact with artists and vote for their favourite pieces. Shinkawa select the best pieces every three weeks and winners will recieve exclusive prizes.

To coincide with the release of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, this week's competition is to create the best Raiden. Details on the following themed competitions can be found below:

  • 25th Feb - 17th March: Mechs and Vehicles
  • 18th March - 7th April: Snake
  • 8th April - 28th April: Female Characters
  • 29th April - 12th May: Male Characters
