Samus Aran by transfuse Samus Aran by transfuse
This is the final Metroid homage digital painting I did for a class project of mine. You can check out the first one here:

One Girl in All the World

And the second one here:

Norfair Depths

Here's a close-up view:

Battlescars

And really high-rez detail shot.

This one only took about 36 hours, but it's the one I'm most satisfied with out of the three images. Hope you guys like it. :)

Photoshop CS2: 36+ hours
Original size: 7200 x 10800 px
Photo ref of the beautiful Roberta Murgo used.

It's my favorite too. I loved it so much I bought a 20x30 print of it and hung it above my bed.

This is probably my favorite Samus art of all time. You can see from the blood and the battle damage that she's made her way through a very hard battle. She also looks very gorgeous and slightly cute, but not too cute (like in a lot of anime art) or overly pretty (like in Smash) - she looks just like a normal woman, which is just right and very fitting for the character.

I always thought that lock of hair hung a bit oddly, apparently it's a blood trail... I need to light my/your posters better.

Hi!  Just wanted to let you know that I've had this picture on my computer for years now, and it's my absolute favorite.  Sometimes when I get down about my own art, I take a look at this and feel inspired.

Yesss yes more yes.  Well executed and strong pose on her here too.  I love great Samus art with her original suit.  This is wonderful.

Since his site is down, does anyone have a link to the original super high-rez version he links to above? I want to get the full body version of this amazing image, but with a bigger width than the provided 950ish pixels.

thanks.

And I wholeheartedly agree with every other positive comment on here. This is quite possibly the most incredible piece of game fanart I've ever seen. It's beautiful and incredible and perfect.

Does anyone else think she sorta looks like Sergeant Tamora Calhoun from Wreck-it Ralph, or is it just me???

Probably... I read on Disney Wiki that she was inspired by several video game characters. :-)

This is spectacular. I seriously just can't stop marveling at how perfect this looks. I love the detailing of the damage on her suit, it really makes it look as if Samus has been fighting legions of Space Pirates or eliminating the Metroids.

Beautiful and stunning. She's beautiful, too, even with the blood. All the scratches and battle scars are so detailed.
