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.

Finally the classic, independant and badass Samus Aran we all grew up with and loved! :) (Smile) 
Excellent work! Clap 

And not this blonde pain in the ass whiny little bitch with a rotted armor too big for her, in skin-tight leather, who gets her guns seized by the first ranked asshole she meets, who freaks out when she sees Ridley which she has already beaten 
at least ten times, and who has even more flashbacks and monologues that in Naruto!!! Rage

Yeah man!

I've never played Other M, but I know that's what you're referring to. I think the prime series started that degenerative path that Samus took.

Thanks dude!

Don't worry pal! You didn't miss much! :D (Big Grin) 
I pretty much summarized you the whole Other M game in my last comment. Problem? 

And if you make more classic Metroid art, I'll be glad to see it!

Oh, I'll be always making classic Metroid art.

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.
