This is the final Metroid homage digital painting I did for a class project of mine. You can check out the first one here:

One Girl in All the World

And the second one here:

Norfair Depths

Here's a close-up view:


And really high-rez detail shot.

This one only took about 36 hours, but it's the one I'm most satisfied with out of the three images. Hope you guys like it. :)

Photoshop CS2: 36+ hours

Man, what a classic piece that's just endured on the internet and just totally encapsulates Samus Aran as a character.

Armor Damages on the Power Suit, a wound on Samus herself, and a Darker/Edgier shading certainly make a Favorite!

It's my favorite too. I loved it so much I bought a 20x30 print of it and hung it above my bed.

This is probably my favorite Samus art of all time. You can see from the blood and the battle damage that she's made her way through a very hard battle. She also looks very gorgeous and slightly cute, but not too cute (like in a lot of anime art) or overly pretty (like in Smash) - she looks just like a normal woman, which is just right and very fitting for the character.
