"HELP HELP!!!": A Sketch by #MaxPayne3 Multiplayer Gang Cast Member SHOHEI

Posted on February 3 2012, 3:18pm | Author: R* A | Filed Under: Games

Arigato to Japanese artist SHOHEI aka @hakuchitare - one of the cast members selected in our worldwide #MaxPayne3 multiplayer gang casting event held on Twitter recently - for whipping up this nice sketch to celebrate the occasion. In it, SHOHEI appears as a marked man desperately trying to get away from a pistol-toting Max Payne while exclaiming "HELP HELP!!!". Of course in his in-game multiplayer gang member appearance, SHOHEI's likeness will be just as likely to be the one wielding the weaponry and inflicting fear in would-be online assailants.

Stay tuned as we will be revealing what the #MaxPayne3 gang looks like in-game sometime this March.

                  Nice Sketch from SHOHEI aka @hakuchitare and it's good for him to be one off the members that have a spot in MaxPayne3. I try to get him in multiplay HAHA (lol).

                        Awesome sketch. Max Payne really has a Walter White (Breaking Bad) feel about him, which is fantastic.

                                Nice contrast work. The character likeness is excellent. It's always nice to see simple 2 color shading art work. Especially with only a minor amount of details, that provide just enough for visual interpretation. It also has that feel of something more than a two dimensional sketch. It pops!

                                Excellent Job Shohei ! -/ 優れた仕事昌平!

                                  This is inaccurate. Since "Help" is an English word, it should be rendered in Katakana, not Hiragana as seen here.

                                      Bwhahahaha, there's something I find morbidly funny about this. Hopefully, we'll see more awesome fanart when it comes out.
