Ridley was close... by AndrewDickman Ridley was close... by AndrewDickman
More of my experimental style in a cute little Samus Aran Metroid setting. I LOVED making this, it was so great to finally do something that looked good once I finished.. the bg isn't that special, but it works out. I wanted something vibrant in color is all. besides, i needed to do at least ONE Metroid fanart in my life.

"Ridley was close... I could feel it..."

By the way, she has green hair because I liked it alot better (remember the NES game code? she has green hair and a purple suit) nothin' but a bug hunt...

I thought Samus had blonde hair...It did look green in the older games (in a way).

She looks alot like Marina off of Mischief Makers from the 64. The Face, the Hair, the Body structure, and the Shoulders too. That's a freakin' awesome drawing.

Samus looks cute in your pic.

I have Metroid on Famicom Disk System (I'm from Asia you know).

In Retro's concept art for Prime it looks like she's got a brown supershort military cut. Green is classic and therefore earns props, naturally, but for the record I think her blonde hair is fine, but the really short brown hair strikes me as the most interesting, characterwise. Like, maybe not visually, but if I were ever to write a fanfic, I'd probably go with that hair. Though I might make it a green military cut, just for the sake of the old skool.

She wasn't a bad blonde though, in the GBA version, I have to admit.

Now anyway, about this picture. This is totally rad and I'm +faving it, which is not something I do frequently (nor do I often comment) because I'm very lazy. But this deserves the attention.

That's pretty cool! HOLY SHOULDERS, Batman!! She's got huge shoulders there, but way to against the grain of exxagerating another certain body part that usually gets blown outta proportion on females!

I would like to point out that Samus only has Green hair in the NES when equiped with Viara. So if you EARNED bikini mode and just didn't use JUSTIN BAILEY you would know her hair is brown.

...

Judging from the booby armor, she has Viara.
