I've reviewed this book before.

IDW had previously published this book with a different cover in 2009, Ashley Wood's Art Of Metal Gear Solid. The 2011 edition sports a white cover but the content is the same. It's now available at a saner price as the earlier edition is out of print.

Ashley Wood's art is still loud and dramatic.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

Looks like Ashley Wood got roped in to create more concept art for Metal Gear Solid, in his own style.

The book I have is a white paperback cover instead of the brown one shown on Amazon (left image), not that it makes any difference.

It collects art from Ashley Wood's graphic novel adaptations of Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid: Sons of Liberty. Additionally, it also has art created for the Metal Gear Solid: Mobile Portable Ops video game.

Here are some keywords to be associated with the book: big guns, long legs, crazy brushstrokes, stylish portraits, no captions.

Fans of Ashley Wood's style and Metal Gear Solid might want to take a look at this book.

This book was bought because my friend Josh got me to start noticing Ashley Wood's work. His art almost looks sloppy the way he draws his ink out. I believe its watercolors and ink in this book with some screen tone. I flipped through it once but then I really looked at the art ya know. Each picture is really special in its own way. His style of art is very attractive because it isnt neat, its raw and very vivid. If you are interested in Metal Gear or just great art it will do the job to inspire you. I still am getting ready to sketch a few of the pics for myself.

Awesome book! Being an avid Metal Gear collector, of course I had to scoop this up. The paper is heavy and each page is glossy. Also the book is much bigger than I expected a little bigger than your average spiral bound notebook Sure to be a collectors item!

I remember seeing Ashley Wood's in the Metal Gear Solid games and wanted to see more of it. I started to look into Ashley Wood's work who I have a art style similar to.
Also, I needed more art reference books to fill my bookshelf. When I the book arrived I was like woah this is the best art book I have every bought so far. Its just so raw, so gritty and so amazing. Ashley Wood is such a gestural artist. You can look at these paintings and drawings on a computer screen but it isn't the same as looking at them in print. This is a book I would recommend for the developing artist.

It's hard to describe the beautiful brush works of Ashley Wood by words... But there're few things I can say for sure... Once you see it, you won't forget the poetic baeuty of his illustrations. Brush strokes, textures, subtle colors, and clever angles... You'll be charmed by them...and will want to see them over and over again. This is totally worth buying.(And of course, if you are fan of his art from the videogames, now you have the chance to relax and take a good look at his artwork without pressing the game controller buttons! haha)

I love Metal Gear Artwork, especially from Yoji Shinkawa however, his books are elusive in the USA. So I bought Ashley Woods book, and it goes without saying that is art is very good. And whether you want some art to look at or you're searching for inspiration, go ahead and get the book. The only thing I feel this book lacked was a commentary, or even an interview of Ashley Wood, I always enjoy hearing an artists comments of their work. The book has NO WORDS, just art. That's my only gripe, lack of commentary.
