Bad Ass Metroid Fighter by Meibatsu Bad Ass Metroid Fighter by Meibatsu
August 22, 2011.

Paint Tool SAI, JASC Paint Shop Pro 7.

When is this mission finally going to end? I could use a shower.
I may have all the tools a bounty hunter would need to take down space pirates, monsters, and planets themselves... multiple times.. but I'm exhausted.
No amount of self-regulating temperature control in the world can stop me from sweating up a storm after running around and shooting at everything in sight for hours in this suit.
I need a breather. Take five, Samus.
I can only put up with the smell of my own sweat for so long.
Helmet off.
...Damn. Back to work.


HAPPY 25th ANNIVERSARY, METROID SERIES~~~! <3

Here's to the original lady of videogaming, Samus Aran, one BAMF woman! (Bad Ass MOTHER F*****--get it?! xD GET IT?! )
Yes, I used her Other M Varia Suit design. XD I have played that game too! It wasn't bad! It just had.. hilariousness when it came to the narrative.. (the baby baby baby~!.. I love babies, btw). My interpretation of her is a mix of Other M (beauty mark~!) and what I wanted (a slightly less frail and dainty lady, and hair that made more sense to me lol).

I like the idea of a tough, dashing Samus. Save the universe, original space girl!

This is actually the first serious attempt at illustrating Samus because metal technological stuff is haaaaard! :C The only other drawing was this tiny one lol:

I can imagine Samus trying to take a break, but every time she did, a metroid would just pop up.

She needed to take her helmet more in other M. I wonder why they didn't do that in the game? Did they think it would be weird or something

If anyone deserves some damn R&R it's Sammy damnit, she's done a LOT of work that would kill any normal being and deserves SO much more, seriously... T_T If only Adam was there to comfort her... :iconsadplz:

You've really captured Samus' badassness yet still made her the women that she is.

Four months of sweat would knock out a yak, but it doesn't faze metroids, unfortunately. :XD:

Poor Samus. It's hard to bathe in space.

I love the look on her face. "Oh, not again..." I've had that look on my face in each and every Metroid game. They always slip past my defenses and chew on my head at least once!!

LOL..."feed the wildlife"! Poor Samus, but it's true! Hmm, you'd think she's have a lot of scars on her face from that...good thing the future has incredible cosmetic surgeons!

Yes, she had to get plastic surgery in Fusion at least!

Actually, I admit I was a little glad she didn't take her suit or helmet off in Fusion until after she'd reabsorbed herself and became fully human again. The Samus/Metroid hybrid art floating around DA is disturbing enough without official encouragement...

Could she have any worse timing on the helmet removal?

I didn't know it was the 25th anni! Loll, anniversaries everywhere. Samus is so hardcore. I'm still not through with metroid prime. I'm so bad with games where the player has a chance of dying. XD so much stresses.. I should just stick to pokemon and harvest moon LOL

She looks so pretty~ and still like a bamf, yes! I like the armor scratches, TRUE SIGNS OF BAD ASSERY.

It was actually August 6, but I take long to get things done, apparently! XD

Obviously there was a Mario (Super Mario All-Stars collection for Wii) and Zelda (concert, OOT 3DS) celebration, but Nintendo didn't do anything for Metroid. lol

Hahaha.. I suck a bundle too! I cannot play the Prime series due to fail FPS skills. I am pretty sure my brother and I hacked Other M just to have infinite energy tanks too. >___>

This is pretty much my first time making armor scratches so I am glad it looks.. scratchery! XD I had to put effort into making her not too pretty and girly. idk if I pulled that off well enough though since she still LOOKS like a girl.. *ponder*

Ohh, hah! xD In my mind it's still early August anyways!

AWWWW! That's sad! But ohm, my friend got OOT3DS, soo cool... It's like magic.

I have poor FPS skills too. XD I get stressed/scared when things start coming at me too, I DON'T WANT TO DIE, WAH. I wish I could hack, my life would be so much easier. <_<

You can still look like a girl without being pretty/girly anyways! xD Pulled off quite nicely, I'd say. Shows her natural beauty? haha
