This here is my own interpritation of the space pirates from Super Metroid. Weather or not these are supposed to be the same as the ones in the Prime series I dont know. I just assume these ones only appear on Zebes(genetic engineering? probably)
Was originally done with pencil but then scanned over and slightly screwed with

I seriously loved these guy's designs in Fusion and Zero Mission!!
You did more than just a fine job with a detailed version with one of the pirates, and on that note I also love your style =P

FAVed!

Thank you, thank you! I tried to make the basic 2d series space pirate more realistic and less cartoony yet keep all the original design ideas complete.
You yourself seem to have a similar sketchy art style yourself, keep up the good work!

There not the same as the Metroid Prime Pirates by the way. The Zebesians went out to revive Mother Brain (After her death in the ''zero mission'' and they managed to bring her back in Super Metroid, after the events of the Primes) and the other group of Pirates were looking for a strong power source, which they had discovered on Tallon IV (Phazon). The Zebesians wear arm-cannons and the others were scythes.

I like how they knock your ass off the platforms when they try to jump over you in the GBA games. Little Bastards...

Yeah but like early in the game I meant. Before you have the Screw Attack.

I love the design! It reminds me more of the Super Metroid space pirates than the Metroid Prime ones, but that's a good thing :D Your drawing style is excellent.
Turbid-D's avatar
Thank you very much on my style! I based the pirate off the Super and Fusion ones as there is barely any images of them at all.

Understandable. I just Googled 'Zebes Space Pirate' and got hardly anything :\ Aside from a Wiki article with the MP2 concept art, but honestly I think the older designs (closer to yours) are less cluttered with more personality.
Turbid-D's avatar
Me too less mainstream if you will. I just try and eliminate some of the cartoonish aspects any of the designs hold and fill in with my own little twists.

You should 'slightly screw' with more of your pencil work. I love how the line work turned out. groooovy.
