I did a warm up sketch a few days and decided to color it. It was initially intended to be a quick color pass, but I was having too much fun and got carried away with it.
I know this has been here a while but I'm just seeing it now...I love this interpretation of samus, you've nailed it for me. Beautiful but badass, and an absolutely brutal take on the armour. Damn, I really want to see this in clay!
Awesome style, details, and colours!
wow, this is just so pretty. i love her armor, and the style. Thank you for sharing this!
I love the helmet.
Kick-ass design. 7/7

Really glad you like it! I was going off the old Super Metroid cartridge art that I used to love as a kid, and decided to run with it.
I'd also have to agree with LordNidhogg. Her face really is beautiful and it yet, it gives off that strong vibe. I love it.
Oh man do I love this piece! This is easily one of my favorite Samus pics, specifically Varia Suit redesigns, I've ever seen. You kept the iconic profile of the design, but really changed it up by adding in some hard angles and playing with the way they alternate with the smooth angles of her armor, and she's got a perfect balance of strong and sturdy with sleek and technical. I also love how you did her face: beautiful and strong, without being overly exaggerated to an extreme on either end of that spectrum. Absolutely fantastic work and definitely being added to me favorites!
I'm so glad you like it! I've looked at tons of Samus art, and really love the anime styles that she is usually depicted in. But my personal style is a bit more western, and I really wanted to take a stab at a slight redesign/interpretation in my own style. It was tons of fun to do, and I'm so glad that you like it!
Nice redesign for her Varia Suit!
Thanks alot! I was basing it mostly off the old Super Metroid cartridge art from my childhood. I wanted to keep it fun and expressive, but in my own style that is mostly a western/comic/"realism" hodgepodge. I have a weird mix of influences, so my own style is an amalgam of all that. I'm glad you like it though!
