Your drawings of Samus are quite amazing! I love them very much!
ZachaRicO Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2017
The way Samus looks here is, as DarthJacen put it, insanely beautiful. It perfectly emphasizes both her Metroid badassery and feminine beauty, each without compromising the other. That's the kind of Samus I'd like to see in a more story-driven Metroid game someday (quietly glares at Other M).

Wow...I've only just discovered this amazing piece of art. Makes me even more nervous waiting for MP4...

Wow can't believe this is 10 years old! It's been my favorite Samus pic for so long :love:

Easily one of the best interpretations of Samus I've ever seen.

If I had to Choose between playing legend of Zelda and playing Metroid! I WOULD DEFINALLY GO FOR METROID ALL THE WAY, Just Because I get To Play a Kickass Bounty Hunter!

A-FREAKIN-MEN. :iconclapplz: I thought I was the only one who preferred Metroid over Zelda, but it seems I'm not alone. :D

My sister :iconcelticwarriormoon: seems to prefer Zelda though for some reason... she keeps saying that's the main difference between us. :XD:

Dude Who Wouldn't  Want A FRICKIN CANNON FOR A ARM! Even if its a Suit, I have so much fun Shooting Things! I Don't Know if This is Just Me but The Only Metroid I Didn't like was the Latest One: Metroid Other M! I Just Didn't Like That Fact That She Has Take Orders From a Military Dude Who She Left To Walk Her Own Path!

I said I like them both the same amount earlier! :P I just find it hard to choose sometimes, they're both awesome series. :)

Insanely beautiful. Probably the best Samus art in existence.

One of my all time favorites!! This has been a staple of my desktop for nearly a decade ... perhaps even longer. I don't recall when I found it on the internets. ;)

Hey man, just spotted your lovely artwork in this piece:…

No credit on the artwork/article - did you license it? Just a heads up :)

Simply stunning. Thank you for doing Samus such justice.
HuggleMistress Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is easily one of the best renditions of Samus I've seen on DeviantArt.  I HATE all the super chibi, sexy, anime renditions because they so poorly represent her character. It's like what's the point of them being Samus?  It might as well be some generic anime girl on the beach. XD Guess that's just DeviantArt though.  Thank you for the great art!
alexhyll Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2013
Absolutely stunning. You managed to capture her resolution, solitude and resolution all in one in that facial expression. Also the fact that she has the scars and bruises makes her seem like a seasoned bounty hunter rather than the weak girl most pictures portray. Best Samus I've seen on the net, even one of the best facial expressions I've seen in quite some time! Good work!

It looks so real.

Wow, this is amazing! I agree that Samus is one of the greatest characters ever created and you have certainly brought her to life in an amazing way. Well done!
aviansie Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2013
funny, saw this as wallpaper in the past ^^
nartendowarz Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013
Best original Samus pic I've ever seen
Sheepova Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013
That's very very nice.
TangNuva Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
See, this is how I view Samus. An assassin and bounty hunter in the midst of battle, not some creation of a pervert's dirty mind. Nice pic, anyways.

This is probably the best picture of Samus where you can see her face ever
Zendio Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012
This is SO amazing!!! and the blood running down her head!!!
rodvcpetrie Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
What I like about this is how you have created Samus's face. I do not want to offend anyone but I don't like the anime style look for Samus - this style makes her seem more like a strong woman, in my opinion anyway.

Alexander-Brandt Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I adore this picture. Part of that comes from my hatred of what the Zero Suit to the way artists perceived her. She went from a tough, silent, gun-toting protagonist to some stereotypical sexualized female character.
Meivath Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012
This is the best picture of Samus I've ever seen. It'll be my desktop background for a long while, I think.
Bloodstability Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Great to see Samus in her suit, a little too many perverts out there for my taste. Faved, and desktop backgrounded :woohoo: great painting!
orangeglasses2 Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2012
This gritty work is awesome. The blood and scratches and her concentration on using her arm cannon, as well as all the lights on her suit make it a spectacular piece.
NexusTwelveFourteen Featured By Owner May 5, 2012
I might be wrong, or just too high, but I see an orange hand holding master chief's helmet in the top-left corner...
BrandedDragoon Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012
Maybe she was sent to find him. *chuckles.* They'd make a good team. But honestly if you had to pair Samus with a battle partener, I'd actually say either Nicole or Kelly instead of Chief.
Twiztid-in-the-Head Featured By Owner May 4, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
this is the best representation of Samus above the "anime style" to date. the one thing i find confusing is why the energy cannon needs rifling in the barrel? lol

Other than that, it's superb.
galaxia9 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012
The detail here is astonishing, nice work.
ImmortalCucumber Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2012
This is amazing. Im going to keep this as my desktop wallpaper for a while.

You know... I have this picture for two years now as a wallpaper - everytime my laptop burned, or I've changed from PC to Mac or otherwise, I always googled this pic with Samus. Can't live without it, I think. :D

Anyway - I learned that it's your today, so... My sincere thanks for something that awesome that exists on my dekstop since 2010 :D

Outstanding, Nearly evertthing is amazing, the scars, the lightning, the shadows and her expression like she won't give in no matter what obstacle stand in her way.
