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.

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.

This is an excellent collection of works by Ashley Wood. Do not buy this if you are looking for a compendium of MGS art throughout the years. This is more recent works such as the images from MGS Portable Ops. Beautiful work with great details.

Seriously this art doesn't get any better. The only downfall to this book is the length, needs to be about 100 more pages. You'll go through it time after time and notice something different or just be amazed all over again. It's hard backed and perfect for any metal gear fans. Ashley Wood brings great work that reminds you of Yoji Shinkawa but has his own style that is distinct. You won't regret buying this and the price is right.

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'm a big fan from metal gear saga, and this art book is awesome, i love the illustrations from many previous games, the details, the information is very complete, this art book includes iallustrations from metal gear solid 1, 2, 3 and peace walker. if you are a metal gear fan don't miss this art book, for me one of the best art books available at amazon.

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.
