One Girl in All the World by transfuse One Girl in All the World by transfuse
It's been a while since I've done a digital painting that was this gruelling. I'm taking a visual design course this semester and for my personal project I decided to do three gruelling digital paintings of Samus Aran-- as homage to the greatest video game character ever created. I spent over 50 hours toiling away at this (mostly trying to get the damn background to look interesting), but I'm still not satisfied with how it turned out. I may go back later and refine it a bit more, but after working on this almost every day for the past month I can't work on it anymore; I'm just too tired. -_-

Here's a detail view:


Inspired by this OCRemixed song:


Photoshop CS2: 50+ hours
Photo ref of close friend of mine used.
Original size: 7200 x 10800

[edit] I was originally planning to add rain because it's heard throughout the song, but my fatigue got the better of me so I added that after getting 14 hours of sleep. :3 Plus I submitted it a bit bigger. And made her look a bit older. Thanks for all your helpful comments, kiddos! It's muchly appreciated! :)

And for those who haven't played the game (or just didn't notice) Samus can summon her ship by remote, which is why it's flying on its own in the background.

Such a very well done piece,  Samus looks very relaxed ! 
This is simply amazing.

If this is Prime 3: Corruption, shouldn't the background fit for that game? Also, shouldn't she be wearing the PED Suit? (Not trying to be rude at all, by the way.)

Beautiful piece of art. It really projects the power of Samus being a noble space warrior.

I do not play the game, but I've loved this picture from the very first time that I saw it, and have been meaning to fave it for  a while now. ^.^;

Happy rain. ^_^

She's waiting for her pickup.

I like her expression, fantastic fan art work!
