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.
