Samus Aran by poojipoo Samus Aran by poojipoo
Seeing as Super Metroid is one of my favorite games of all time, I felt it necessary to finally do up some fanart of Samus!

Downloading the file yields a much higher res image for your enjoyment, just so yah know. :)

Holy cow. Go make the covers for the next few Metroid releases. Heck, do this for any game series. Amazing work.

I wouldn't exactly call 1280x731 vs. 900x514 "much higher res".  More like "marginally higher res".

Regardless, it's damned excellent artwork!  :D

Hrm!  That's odd, it used to be around 1920x1080-ish.  Not sure what happened there.

WOW! if only Nintendo would make animated series or movies that look like this. This is extreme. I love it!
You know what would be funny? If she was crawling on the floor to get a 1up shroom. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE THIS, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

Beautiful piece of work! Best I've seen (so far) of Mother Brain. Guess it looks better dead. Love the lighting, as well as battle damage on Samus.

They tried at some point, but I think Nintendo pulled the plug 'cuz they were worried about another Mario movie, haha... It would be tough to pull off, what with Samus being mute most of the time (and the few times she wasn't, it had... mixed results), but I think there's possibilities yet unexplored...!

Wow, she looks...human. This may be the most realistically human Samus I've seen. Great job on the perspective, atmosphere, and mood.

Obviously this is during the 20-30 second period that the warning message is still typing itself and the door hasn't blown open.

Great art. I really like your metal reflections and the shaders.
But to be honest, I feel somehow bad for her... that Chozo tech needs to be repaired!! Great battle indeed.

Hello, if I have posted this on your picture, then it means your artwork effin rocks. Futhermore, I would like to tell you that I used this picture in a YouTube video of mine found here [link] Don't worry, I did not take claim for your artwork cause I can never achieve this much awesome-ness. If you would, however, like your information (such as DA username) next to the picture in the video, please let me know so I can add it. I want all of your art to be properly acknowledged. Thank you for your time and keep up the amazing work :dance:

I like my zero suit as much as the next guy, but it's great to see somebody who remembers that Samus kicks boot-ay too.
Too bad the makers of Other M didn't remember that.

This is just magnificent, the lighting, colors, details of the broken armor... and I also like that you didn't make Samus a perfect looking hentai girl either.

This is amazing - I love all the detail in the background, it really creates a scenario for her to be in (man that sounds so cheesy). I've seen loads of pics of her with her armour broken off just to show the zero suit (for some reason...) but this really looks like she's taken some damage! Amazing work :)
