Screaming Mantis MGS4 by ZeroNis Screaming Mantis MGS4 by ZeroNis
(Crying Wolf, Raging Raven, Screaming Mantis, and Laughing Octopus, are all members of The Beauty and the Beast Unit. Screaming Mantis holds two marionettes of previous MGS bosses: Psycho Mantis and The Sorrow, both of whom are psychics. All four of them are women who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. The only way they can cope with the damage done to their minds is to become war machines. Their inner appearance is referred to as "Beauty", while their outer appearance is referred to as "Beast".) -wiki

I love MGS and cannot wait to get my hands on #4!!!
If you guys are also fans of the series, comment please!~

Thanks!

does screaming mantis look at your other games and discuss your habits, like in the original, or bring back those you've killed? 'cause they're both cool skills. I have the games, and im on my way to her, I love metal gear solid, its just fantastic.

quick idea, I would love it if mantis used scares from other games on you, like having nicole from dead space scream at you, or albert wesker grab your throat. dead space scares would work on me. great games, both of them.

great pic in any case.

At the end of the Screaming mantis fight, returnes Psycho Mantis. After a scene that he did in MGS1. If you listen closely he calls the names of the cobara unit. And the sorrow comes and sends him to hell.

:omg: Instant fav :love: MGS4 FTW!!! :w00t: I love this game. Seriously best game EVER!!! It was a complete suprise to me when I got to know why those bosses were called "Beauty and the Beast". I was so amazed that all 4 of them were drop dead gorgeus chicks :giggle:

Very well then. :-) I realize its a while since you upped this piece (which is gorgeous, by the way), and like you I love MGS. Was weeping tears of joy when my copy of Guns of the Patriots "appeared" in my hands.

the description says that all 4 are women?? uhh i haven't played MGS4, but Mantis and Sorrow were both dudes. dunno about the other two new guys.

but other than that, awesome work. great consistency and i like how the background appears to have been shot with a fisheye lense, while the rest is just an upward perspective.
