Samus Aran by juliedillon Samus Aran by juliedillon
I felt like drawing some Metroid fanart between other projects. And I wanted to draw Samus Aran in her armor (although I took a few liberties with the suit design), to help counterbalance all the other art with her wearing that ridiculous "zero suit" or some other revealing outfit. Which... that's fine and all (who doesn't like a little cheesecake now and then?), but not every single female character in video games has to be reduced down to how good they look in skimpy clothing. Samus is a badass. She's one of the few female characters out there who gets to wear armor that has a purpose aside from showing off her figure. Let her have her big awesome armor. ;)

The suggester said: "The reason I like this piece of art so much is because the concept is very simple, but it's just done so wonderfully - the lighting, shading, and all the little details. " ( Suggested by princessmidna8765 and Featured by TommyGK )

"I took a few liberties with the suit design"

It's not like Samus' suit doesn't change from game to game, anyway. Regardless, this is a fantastic piece of art. Thank you for sharing.

This is by far my favorite Metroid piece! Everything about it is so perfect, it's just flawless.  It's so detailed from the great lighting to her lit up arm cannon and even cracked visor. Absolutely amazing job on it! Plus, I totally agree with your comment
Hamtaro Mouse Emoji-02 (Kawaii) [V1] EPIC!!!

Gorgeous gorgeous work!  Like you and everyone else here, I agree that there is far too much zero suit samus butt on deviant art.

This is beautiful, and brings to mind the atmosphere and tone of Metroid Prime for sure.  At this point, I can see the camera panning behind Samus and zooming into her helmet as some giant, unknown creature towers over her and roars threateningly. 

Bravo!
