Samus is a girl. by Phobos-Romulus Samus is a girl. by Phobos-Romulus
Character developers should take notes from Samus. She's tough, she's attractive, and doesn't need a revealing outfit to accentuate it. Her gender doesn't change the gameplay at all, which is great. 

And I'm taking about Samus from the original 3 games. Not that dumb zero suit, not friggin Other M.

I love your take on classic Samus.

 

The first design I saw of Samus was her modern design (that’s also when I found out she was actually a girls since hadn’t played any Metroid game then) but I took a look at her Super Metroid design and that it looked so badass. She was tall, muscular and had long curly hair and I’ve always thought it was a shame that they dropped that look in favor or a more typical design. I like her new designs but it feels kind of generic.

 

Also, is it me, or does Nintendo have an obsession of turning their characters into blue-eyed blonds when they redesign them? Take Link, Zelda, Peach and Samus for example XD

 

*I’m aware that Link had brown/orange hair in ALBW and Zelda had brown hair in TP but they usually appear as blonds.

Thanks! Was contemplating more curly hair, but this worked better. As long as it still retained her classic persona, I was fine.

Yeah, never played the prime games or Other M, but the developers sure did a number on her design, and not for the better.

Ha, I probably have noticed it, now that I think about it. Maybe Nintendo's run by a bunch of Aryans, haha.

I keep coming back and looking at his pic cus I love it lol. She looks so much more human here and in the first 3 games than the newer ones.  She looks like a fighter not a model (although she still is pretty even with the scars). It's so nice to see her as a person not a sex toy all the time :) Thanks for the great art

Ha, another reason I'm not attracted to the Prime games.

Thanks again, I'm glad you like it so much!

If you're good at metroid games you see her in zero form in the end. But if you're like me and suck lol then you only know her in armour.  I've only played the first prime and it's hard but not bad. The older games are waay better still.

Yeah, like I've said before, I'm sure the Prime games are good fps games, but I'm sick to death of FPS games anyway. 

I think I've beaten all of the 2d games in good enough time to see her without her armor. Super Metroid is the one I play most by far.

Yeah. That's the problem. Fps games are popular these days.

Lucky you have that much skill lol. I don't have that one yet. Is it easier than the rest?

Hmm, I'd say it plays a lot smoother anyway. Zero Mission, Fusion, and M2 all told you where to go, whereas Super Metroid and M1 don't, which I like a lot better.

To be fair, the Zero Suit was hardly her first sexy outfit, though has gotten more exposure than it should.  And Other M wasn't as bad as most people say, though the script and (especially) the voice acting were pretty bad.  Anyway, this is a great picture of my favorite game character.  Great job!

Yeah, I know there was the justin bailey and also the endings, but those were more brief fanservice than anything. But yeah, while the design isn't bad, fans have ruined it by focusing on it too much.

I still refuse to play it.

Thanks!
