This picture was a fight from the very begining. It ranks as one of my hardest and most time consuming. I became obsessed with it. I thought about it nonstop. I daydreamed about it at work, and got yelled at by neglected customers.
It depics the scene in metroid where little Samus is found by the Chozo and is carried back with them. It didn't turn out exactly as I wanted. I wanted more rubble of the ruined earth colony, but for some reason the painting wouldn't allow that. I also wanted it 'feel' like the very first game, which I think it does quite nicely
It measures 11X14 on bristol board and done in my usual watercolor with colored pencil details.

Just wish Nintendo didn't retcon the Chozo's existence with that shitty other m. I think I'm gonna include them in my fanfic to honor them.

How did they retcon the Chozo's existence in Other M?
TheRoamer13's avatar
By not mentioning them at all, of course. Did you watch the walkthrough on youtube?

I played the game, multiple times. Just because there was no mention didn't mean they retconned it, it just mean they didn't mentioned it like a few other stuff they didn't mentioned during Super Metroid, Metroid 2 and Zero Mission. In fact all was done was add to, not subtract from what was already known to the gamers that played the series.

The Chozo were Samus parental figures, but in Other M, that fucker Adam was.

After Virginia and Rodney died, Old Bird and Gray Voice were the surrogate parents yes, but after they died, Adam filled that role. During the time with Old Bird she never really mentioned her original parents either, after the trauma with Ridley on K-2L she just copes with things really quickly. Any new games with Samus from here on out will most likely not have anymore parental role replacers, atleast from Samus's perspective. Another point to make, since we knew so little of Adam from what barely got touched in Metroid Fusion, they tried to give as much info of their relationship as they could during those cutscenes of her flashback to her time in service. Conclusion, they did not retconned anything, if they did then perhaps the secret boss at the end was, considering the events in Super Metroid, but who knows or cares really.
