After the creation of a new Kojima Productions studio by Hideo Kojima, fans and industry professionals around the world have shown outpouring support for the creator of Metal Gar Solid.
Yet, some did it in a more creative way than others, drawing some rather awesome fanart based on the new logo of the studio, with results that you can see below.

Kojima-san himself took to Twitter to encourage the fans to imagine the full body of the character represented in the logo:

“This new logo, as you have sent me, doesn’t just have a head (profile), there’s also a full body. Please, try to imagine it.”
Personally, I find quite refreshing to see the creative juices flow between Kojima Productions and its fans. Hopefully, it’ll bode well for the future.
One thing is for sure: those who loved Hideo Kojima’s past work have definitely rallied around him. We’ll never know what really happened between him and Konami, but the fans have clearly made a choice.
