Samus. all digital.

I felt the urge to draw here up without the helmet. And give her a more streamlined tightly fitted suit. Mostly because Samus seems to just get chunkier and bulkier as the games progress. And i really hate all the new designs of her when she is outside the suit. I see her as a bad ass. and then in a lot of recent renditions.....she is some soft blonde dits with a scrunchy in her hair. blech.
The Streamlined part comes in because... well i just like it better. And i kinda dig the more Ninja-esc feel.

To give credit, where credit is due, The hair was inspired by this girl here. metroid-cosplay-to-the-max/

I don't mind that samus is blonde I just dont like how she looks all barbie dolled (no scars or dirt or anything. )

yeah, i never got all the blue suit Samus' they totally are just what you said. I would hate to imagine that's what's in the suit.

I really think this piece of art is amazing! The varying thickness of the lines is really appealing and the coloring is awesome! I think all your pics should be done in this style! And a comic done this way would be even more awesom!

Thanks man! I have grown much since this pic, so i see it a little differently. But, I am actually in the process of doing a revamp on this. A print will be for sale I think as well. You'll have to let me know if you approve of the new one when i post it.

I agree with your description 100%
Although I like the "Bulkyness" of the Prime Series. To me the Varia suit has been the "Tanky" suit. And the power suit the more Agile.
