This is my 2nd Metroid painting. It was much more gruelling and time-consuming than my first one:

One Girl in All the World

Took a little over 70 hours and once again I'm still not satisfied with it. =/ Anyhow, this one goes out to all you Ridley fans. Hope you like it. :)

Here's a version without Ridley in it so you can see all of the background-- spent a long ass time on it! -_-

Norfair Depths BG

Inspired by the Norfair Depths area song in Super Metroid. The song is nicely remixed here:

The depth only makes this scene much more memorable and the drawing feel cooler.

Super Metroid fanart with this level of quality touches my heart in a way that nothing else can.

One of my most favorite Metroid pieces ever, still have it as a wallpaper to this day. Captures Metroid's lonely atmosphere yet reflects ridley's ferocity. Lighting is simply awesome :)

Is it by any chance available anywhere in full HD? It's an amazing piece and I would love to have it as my desktop background.
