Samus Aran by rongs1234 Samus Aran by rongs1234
Been in a "Metroid" mood lately, and it has made me interested to draw my own take on Samus. I really wanted to draw a version of her Varia suit where the visor was bigger and showed more of her face. I might draw a more detailed design of her normal suit, the Varia suit and the Zero suit some day.

Seeing your Samus Aran artwork makes me wish you had your own videogame series.  Or at least game developers would ask you to draw for them...

Like how Archie Sonic comics shift between artists for different story arcs...

This one I like. You captured a rare variation for Samus:  The detail in the power suit captures Samus as the hunter,  the enlarged visor and expression shows her as confident, yet charming. All this without turning her into an overglorified sexpot.  Its one side I kinda liked to see on Samus, even though she's more  alert, pragmatic and down to earth about the dangerous business she has hunting space pirates and the like.  :)

I seem to like your style of Sames better than Nintendo's one.

It [almost] seems as though everyone has forgotten about the Power Suit (the yellow one, where she's not as bulky, and my personal favorite!). Folks just only wanna draw the Varia Suit all the time. *Shrug*

I get that it's very:bulletred: popular, but then on another page, no one's drawing Fire Mario, Kitsune Luigi:bulletorange: or Dr. Cossack eating hearty soup. in his fortress! '

Those are really cool, too! *Points angrily*
This argument's a bit on the moot side, though.

Picture is beautiful regardless.

:bulletred: BIG Understatement
:bulletorange: Kitsune Luigi = Luigi + Tanooki Leaf item. Based on Japanese Mythology. I'll post a pic shortly.

Raccoon Mario & Kitsune Luigi. :iconfyiplz:[link]
(Kitsune is Japanese for Fox.)

Now you see what I mean.

Speaking of Other M, I like that they made the shoulders smaler. I just sorta miss the ridges and all the other lights.

it can be, the main problem for me was figuring out how those shoulder pads fit on her body. Some pics ive seen of Samus in her Varia suit make her shoulders look so broad its not physically possible.

well im trying to pace my self. When i felt i hit a slump I had like 7 sketches of different things and I looked at them and was like "Gah none of these look good," I might have just thought they looked bad becasue i was feeling so worn out. maybe I should post those sketches some day
