God bless webcomics and crossovers, and making such matchups like Golbez vs Samus (with Eggplant Wizard and FuSoYa on the side) make sense, and be amazing. Scene comes from a recent Captain SNES. [link]
Working on experimenting with colors. I still don't know what I'm doing at all.
Not sure if messy or painterly. Probably a lot more of the former.
So, I've already talked a little bit about my fan-idea of who Samus is, but I think there's still a lot of room for quirks and faults and failures. Not only would she be conflicted between the Rage of losing her colony alongside the discipline and Spirituality raised from the Chozo (with explosions of either from time to time), but, yeah, I doubt she'd make any friends with environmentalists.
I dunno, I was bored, and I remembered that Space Pirates use Metroids as target practice. Also, I reeeaaally like the Metroid Prime 2 version of the Space Pirates. Comments are appreciated, thanks. ^_^U
After I made this [link] I really wanted to try and draw the other main Metroid characters, save for the Metroids themselves, based on their 8-bit sprites. So I spent nearly all afternoon coming up with designs ans such, and this is eventually what came out. I'm still not very pleased with the way I drew Mother Brain though.
So yeah, the Metroid series is now 25 years old today, and of course, I wanted to make some type of homage to it. But for the longest time, I couldn't think up of a way to do it, and the only idea that sounded cool in my head was to have some sort of battle between Samus and some space pirates being reflected in one of Ridley's eyes. To be honest though, I'm not 100% satisfied with how it came out, but it was still fun making it. In short, Happy birthday, Samus!
Shantae was a great game that got overlooked when it came out on Gameboy Color, but that was due in part to the Gameboy Advance having been out already. But by a miracle a sequel got made and put out on DSi ware, and soon it will be available on all iOS devices. The original is rare and expensive these days, but if you like good platformers then give the sequel a try on DSi/3DS or iOS when that version launches.
This semi-organic, crudely sentient endoskeleton can move and function only upon merging with a substantial mass of Slime, utilized the biomass not only as a muscular system, protective coating and offensive weapon but an extension of its very brain, increasing its cognitive capacity tenfold. Over time, it may develop a complex and unique personality, typically regarding its slime as its very "soul" or "essence." Separated, the two revert to their natural state - a mindless slime and emotionless, barely mobile Oozoid.
Said to be one of the earliest genetic experiments alive today, the Bucbuclaw pre-dates Mortasheen city by at least several millenia and is rumored to have been created in the crude "laboratories" of some primitive, all-human civilization whose laughable parodies of science would have lead to a swift and violent collapse.
Fairy tales aside, these small, speedy hunters display a formidable mix of brutality and brainpower, maneuvering with ingenious strategy and toying with prey until they can identify and exploit some fatal vulnerability in a single, swift strike of their foot talons. Hermaphroditic and self fertilizing, the eggs of Bucbuclaw are injected into living hosts through a telescopic, bladed cloaca along with a noxious stew of filthy waste products. Developing chicks depend on sepsis to destroy the host from within, providing them with an adequate supply of festering carrion by the time they hatch.
A Bucbuclaw's brain is located in its chest, allowing even a decapitated specimen to survive indefinitely, slurping morsels of food into its neck cavity.
I HEARD YOU ALL LIKE "RAPTORS" SO I DREW YOU A POOPING CHICKEN
Intended as a modern replacement for such biochemical dispersers like the Gasjack, Mumblegog and Blightshade, this scurrying, leaping being can synthesize a wide range of gaseous chemicals from over thirty raw elements manufactured and stored in its body, including defoliants, insecticides, nerve agents, narcotics, anaesthetics or even aphrodesiacs. A single exhalation of its bellows-like jaws can swathe a wide area in a chemical smokescreen.
Unfortunately, the Hexhaust's physical and mental stability cannot withstand its own volatile contents for long. Literally poisoning itself with every breath, the monster descends into erratic, insubordinate and absurd behavior within hours of consciousness, deviating wildly from its orders and often mixing gases inappropriate to the situation, whether by malfunction or maniacal whim. Only when it at last loses consciousness does the Hexhaust's mind and body repair itself. By the time it emerges from its regenerative hibernation, it can no longer recall its irrational behavior and consistently believes that all others present were "the crazy ones."
This one's face is based on one of my favorite deep sea fish, the "tube eye!" I actually didn't change that much of its mouth anatomy.
Also inspired by the Urban Legend of the Mad Gasser of Matoon!
To fully understand this joke you must listen to the first minute of this video: [link]
I know it isn't exactly the way they described it, but it's MY drawing and dang it, I'll do it my way! XD (And I just wanted to draw her facial expression as well, and the crumbs on her face)
why I drew her Sitting on top of Ridley you ask?......I'm not even sure. I just wanted to draw Ridley. Maybe I wanted to get a point across that life is good for Samus by stating she defeated Ridley and the Space Pirate threat is neutralized. She might even get to blow up another planet today! Time for cookies and milk!
