Senator Armstrong by ValentrisRRock Senator Armstrong by ValentrisRRock
I would not go so far as to call the senator Armostrong the most badass and epic video games boss of the last ten (or forty) years , since I'm not really familiar with the games the past decade, but I must admit that I have no evidences against it either. MGR:R Final boss cinematics alone made ​​me buy the game that I was not interested before, of the series that I always get round.
In fact, all I knew about the MG series before is "you play as one-eyed guy who likes to hides in a boxes, and then in the middle of the game you're suddenly became some bishonen, which everyone hates". But Armstrong (and it seems all the other characters too) is so shamelessly and barefaced emits video game pathos that sometimes I get the impression that the game is actually parodies epic stories, characters, and even visual designs of bosses.
At the moment, it's hard to say anything else because I didn't even passed the middle of the game , but it looks like I finally got another rich source of inspiration.

Hard to say, man, did you read his election program (also known as "Steven Armstrong's guide to how to make America GREAT AGAIN"):
1. Give everyone his own war
2. Purge the weak
3. Fuck the media
4. Nanomachines, son
5. Make a giant omelette for some reason

Still, he has one main advantage compared to Trump - he is a fictional character.

Every quote from Armstrong is a piece of literary gold.

ANYwho,
amazing artwork!
You really captured the detail of Armstrong's 'nanomachine' veins, as well as Raiden, and even the Metal Gear they're sitting on!

I also must point out that I love your visual design of perspective, and all the little jokes you threw in there.
As a huge fan of the ENTIRE Metal Gear Solid series, I must say that you did 'Revengance' a lot of justice, and it's an inspiration to see such masterful artwork as this!

Thank you very much! Watching cinematics from Revengeance I had no idea that I will spend about half of a year making MGR fanart, but this thing was inspiring for all kinds of tributes, really glad you liked it.

>Every quote from Armstrong is a piece of literary gold.

I wish Konami would found a way to bring him back in some uncanon project, he is just too entertaining character to be thrown out. From his one-liners to music theme, Armstrong is one solid classic example of final boss.
