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).
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!
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!
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!
