This piece is a testament to what good fan-art represents, you get to see Samus in all her glory doing what she does best.

- Positives -
The light hues you used really makes it feel cold with the deep blues and purples giving it the "toxic planet" you were going for.

The coloring work is amazing with subtle differences throughout the piece in shading and blending

The light green used bottom right draws your eye immediately to the Metroid then naturally ramps it down towards Samus.

- Negatives -
The two large white areas immediately to the left and right of Samus seem out of place and almost unfinished.

The depth of field is rather harsh close up (as it should be) but then doesn't gracefully blend in throughout the piece, it's as if there's a beautiful painting that has just had a depth of field border applied.

The falling snow doesn't seem random enough for genuine show, the particles look too big and uniform.

- Improvements -
I don't get the feeling of movement from the piece, the Metroids seem frozen in the air instead of hurtling towards Samus, in addition the trail from the gun seems oddly a-symmetrical.

- Summary -
A beautiful piece of fan-art!
