The Space Pirate forces are getting ready to leave. Pirates are picking up their last Phazon reserves that they had collected in Dark Aether (No, they're not spraying it out, they're sucking it up ^-^). MP3: Corruption players might recognize the storage capsules for the Phazon. I based the room on the one you visit in Agon, which contains almost every Pirate Log. You can see the Dark Aether hologram, which is still on line while Dark Aether is gone by then. Their base is already breaking down because GF forces attacked to free Aether from Pirates. One Pirate is deleting their computer data, after sending it to the Colossus. The Pirate in the front doesn't seem to trust the Phazon that he's supposed to collect.


Stowaway:
Our attempts to intercept the Federation ship departing Aether were unsuccessful. With them went a collection of Phazon, the first to fall into Federation hands. They foolishly left most of the Phazon behind, allowing us to quickly collect what we could. But in our haste we took more than mere Phazon. Our scanners have detected the remains of Dark Samus, who has revived herself within our Phazon storage. Surely, we are cursed. The fiendish shrew consumed all of the Phazon, then wiped out a third of the crew in a matter of minutes. Now she moves at will through the halls of Colossus, using her witchery to beguile the minds of the crew. We are unable to call for aid, and only a few of us remain to stand against her. All is lost.

I remembered when the Luminoth talked about the cosmetic object that hit Aether. It was a Phazon Meteorite that sent darkness all around it and most Space Pirates died trying to collect Phazon.

Nice! I love the angle fo the camera here ( kinda like the fps-death-on-the-floor-thing) And yes i have noticed the changing appearances of the Space Pirates. Even within the prime games. They change from reptilies like things in the first, to bug like in the second, to back to reptilian like, but sleeker( personally i like their 3rd design best) But yeah the skeletal look works cause it was used in MP2. Great work with colors- looks stunning in full view!

Thanks again =) I like them in the 2D Metroids most, because I like crustacean and bug like creatures :D

Whoa, good use of diagonal camera angle there. The vibrant colors and the perspective is good.

Have you noticed that they're are many different Space Pirates Metroid? I have this theory that the Space Pirates are a group of different species of rebellious aliens that never stop to try to destroy GF, even through all of their failure, all thanks to the heroine, Samus.
It seems obvious though because in different worlds, there has to be another race of Pirate that is ready to confront Samus. They vary from the mantid Pirates in Zebes to these pink, fleshy worms that wear bipedal exoskeletons in MP3:C. I know their worms because if you look closely on the 'slaves' of those kind of pirates. They lack armor and you can see their worm body.

Thanks :D I never use diagonal angle, but I thought that in this pic it would be very cool =) OK, I think that it's right that there are many different species, but I think there all from the Pirate Homeworld, just like the diffent sopecies that are on planet Earth. But your theory might be correct too, I don't know. But thanks for the comment :D

wow! the colors of this ones are really nice....how much time did you spend to do the colors?
KiHunter's avatar
Thanks! I think it was about 3 hours. With markers it's a bit hard to get it done very quickly, and I can't say that it's done, ya know, I always see a little thing that could be added :P
