Phendrana by dmvcomics Phendrana by dmvcomics
After completing "Metroid Prime" I had the urge to create some sort of fan piece based on the game. I decided I really liked the atmosphere set in the Phendrana area (I think much of it had to do with the music), and I thought the flying Space Pirates were quite the interesting adversaries, so I based my drawing on that. I'm not incredibly happy with the coloring. I am very pleased with the way Samus turned out, but I think that background had much more atmospheric potential.

Wow. Love the colors and just the overall feel of the pic. The background seems sufficient. Something is missing, but I don't know what it is. Still, its a helluva background anyhow. You should be proud of this art. Its pretty sweeeeeet!

Oh, man... I have such a rough time understanding perspective... But you nailed it! And your understanding of drawing robots is perfect! I dread drawing Metal Sonic and Omega when I get to it in my comic... I need some major pointers...

Thanks! I beg to differ that I nailed the perspective-- but I'll take the compliment nonetheless. :)

Whenever you get to a point in some of your own drawings that you could use some pointers, shoot me a message and I'll take a look for you.

Would u? That would be awesome! Um... I'd like to scan in a little more of my comic in first, because I only have the first few pages out of like 80 something... (Waah) Scanning is such a pain for me though, ehh...^^; Otherwise it's kinda pathetic right now...

Yeah, I remember at one point in the game being scared to death of that sound. I don't remember them being particularly easy. At least not for a while into the game...

Oh those guys are so annoying. I loved the music of Phendrana but hated these guys so much.

Thanks, everybody from the Nintendo groups, for all the Samus love you've been giving me :)

nice recreation of my favorite area, I do love Phendrana drifts so much
DexAntares Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2009
UGH, Phendrana was SUCH a pain later in the game, but man, it was a fun area. I loved watching the Pirates lose control of their flight systems when they took too much damage. And the atmosphere was so... serene... that music was like listening to an audible qualude.

Samus is great! I always play her on Super Smash Brothers... my buddies think I'm crazy. I like the colour a lot, and the whole angle of the composition is nice!

I also am a fan of Phendrana Drifts' music -- In fact, I'm listening to the midi right now. ^^; But anyway, this really rocks. The lineart is incredible and the coloring is pretty sweet too. Great job! :dance:

Yeah.. what was it about that music? Just fit the area PERFECTLY. Anywho... thanks for the comments. Much appreciated. ;)
